Mini Cranberry Yogurt Oatmeal Muffins

I like to stock up on bags of cranberries when they are plentiful and cheap.  Then I pull them out of the freezer and enjoy cranberries year 'round.

This is a pretty little lightly sweet muffin with cranberries, Greek yogurt-soaked oats, and a candy topper that makes a terrific after school treat.…

Green Tomato Bacon Jam

What do you do when the nights cool down, you've got plenty of tomatoes on the vine and they're not ripening?  Try this recipe for putting up green tomatoes in the form of Green Tomato Bacon Jam.  It's delicious as a sandwich spread, an appetizer, but my favorite way to enjoy it is mixed into ground meat for burgers.  …

A pumpkin carving feast!

Cross-posted on Local Me.

Autumn rustles through the maples of Manhattan, sweeping away the tomatoes, corn, zucchinis, and berries of our Indian summer. I focused on the hearty, auburn, and waxy season-transition vegetables at my farmers' market class last weekend. Indeed, this is the time for roasting, stewing, and…

Fall Hiking

In between water sports and downhill skiing, I get my outdoors fix with some crisp, scenic hikes during the fall season. As the leaves turn and the air cools, it’s the perfect time of year to lace up those boots, fill a daypack and hit the trails!

The Month of the Locavore

Today is September 1st. It marks my transition into Fall (even though I have 20 days left of summer). I have packed up (most of) my sundresses, sandals, and popsicles in favor of fall tweeds, boots, and pies!

Yesterday, HOMEGROWNer Kristen, posted a blog about her decision to enter the NOFA-NY Locavore Challenge - http://www.nofany.org/events/ny-locavore-challenge. I was inspired by her excitement and passion to embrace… Continue

Storing the Fall Bounty

Storing the Fall Bounty

We have all worked hard in our gardens and on our farms, reaping the harvest

all season long, from spring greens and peas to main season

broccoli and green beans. We’ve been canning pickles and salsa,

freezing beans and corn, and drying herbs so that we can enjoy the

flavor of a summer meal while warming up near the woodstove after a long

day on the ski slopes (at least… Continue

Quince Jam

I have always misunderstood quince. After the magnificent show it puts on in the early spring, it tends to fade into the periphery of a landscape, playing the role of ugly duckling for the remainder of the year. The apple-like fruit may seem tempting in the fall, until a curious nibble proves instantly disagreeable. Rarely are you able to remove it from your landscape without a… Continue

Sauteed Pea Shoots with Grainy Mustard Vinaigrette
