Dainty Radish Pizza with colorful CSA radishes

When I set the radishes on this pizza I thought it looked like Easter, so I'm sharing it today.

I was trying to duplicate the awesomeness that is a radish sandwich, and added some cheeses to a tender/crunchy pizza crust and wow--my non-radish-eating son ate all the leftovers.  

You can…

Prosciutto, Goat Cheese and Fig Jam on an Eggnog/Butternut Pizza Crust

Using food I can find marked down is kind of a thing of mine.  I can Seconds tomatoes when my garden doesn't produce enough, I buy day old naan whenever I see it, and marked down dairy products make my heart happy.  

But sometimes I get stumped with how to use them up before they go bad. 

Pizza crust made with eggnog and butternut squash?  Why not?…

Poutine, An After Thanksgiving App

It's crazy for me, a US American ;) to be sharing a recipe for Poutine.  But I'm doing it anyway, because it's a fun use of one of our Thanksgiving leftover orphans--gravy.  

Always seem to have a bit of gravy leftover, and this is a wonderful way to enjoy it.  Especially good if you get to visit the cows providing your squeaky cheese curds!…

Cheddar, Apple Caramelized Onion and Bacon Pizza

This is a yummy pizza inspired by an apple my mom brought me and some neat cheese I picked up at Costco.  Paired with some caramelized onions and crispy bacon from the freezer, it's a delicious fall pizza.

Goat Feta Cheese

Yesterday I made Feta cheese for the first time! Why am I putting it in a gardening blog? Tomatoes! I'm learning now so I can make some in TOMATO SEASON! Goats=cheese + tomatoes= YUM!

I already learned Mozzarella last year and wanted to learn how to make Feta too as I like both these…

Home Cheese-Making & Paneer Cheese (RECIPE)

This is a cross-post from my blog, Together In Food; to read a slightly different version of this post, please go to my blog here.

I love cheese, and I have this (perhaps slightly crazy) dream of producing 80% of the food we eat at home myself, from scratch (growing, raising and processing it). So, I wanted to be able to make cheese myself. I'd read…

Making Fresh Cheese

My friend Donna has been making fresh cheese for ages. This go-round I asked to join in. Like so many things which previously seemed complicated, I was surprised at how simple the process is. Separate the curd from the whey, strain, compress or age, and you've got a perfect example of the subtle beauty of mild cheese.
Donna most often…

Farmer's cheese - it's so easy

I'm new to Homegrown and so excited to have found this online community. I might as well jump right in!

I'm still new to cooking from scratch, and I can't believe how pleasurable and easy it can be. I feel like a schmuck for having eaten so poorly for so much of my life. The post below is just taken from my blog):

Most Polish families are likely familiar with farmer's cheese, a mild and soft cheese that resembles ricotta or… Continue
