Garden Salad with Sour Cream

I wash each harvest from my garden and I go about it with meticulous care. Each pea pod is rubbed and scrubbed under lukewarm water (I can't handle cold water running over my hands for long periods of time, because, frankly, I'm a sissy). Each spinach, lettuce and basil leaf is…

Cook-off Recipe: Cold Veggie Confetti with Feta Cheese

I've been traveling in England for the last two weeks, and that means that I've had my fare share of Cotswold cheeses, cured meats and fish n chips. The minute the plane touched down on home soil, I knew it was time for some fresh veggies! Good thing my neighbor dropped off our Parker Farm CSA share last night:

1 bunch golden beets, 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch kale, 2 zucchini, 3 cucumbers, 2 pounds new potatoes, 1/2 pound roma beans and 1 bunch red spring onions.

Heat wave be…

Cucumber salad - a few ingredients make a tasty appetizer

Originally posted on my blog

In Polish meals, you don't really see the huge green salad full of veggies so popular in the States.

First Harvest!

In spite of the fact that it got down to -1 this weekend...

I made what I call Kitchen Sink Salad, which consists of me going outside and picking everything that's ripe or needs to be thinned: radishes+greens (radish greens are a lot like spinach in taste/recipe potential), buttercrunch lettuce, red leaf lettuce, mesculin mixture, kohlrabi sprouts, borage, mizuna, sweet allium leaves, plus edible weeds like dandilion (only young leaves, which I think are less bitter), and shamrocks. Then I… Continue

Salad Days

This is my first year growing during the winter (yeah I can still call it winter in Austin) and my first year to start everything from seeds.

I've had successes and failures - but my favorite success has been lettuce and spinach. Yesterday, as I was eating my lunch - I realized it all came from my back yard (with the exception of the vinaigrette dressing). These moments keep me growing.
