Being a local seasonal eater means I get to eat amazingly delicious foods. Fresh food--tomatoes, strawberries, even celery--just tastes better and I'm usually willing to wait out the winter months for those fresh tastes. But if I limited my diet to solely local foods, I'd miss out on bananas, avocados, olives, shrimp, chocolate, salmon, tea . . . lots of stuff!
This avocado feta hummus is good as a stand alone dip--but it sings when you layer it with fresh &…Continue
I spent last week bringing a little "Local Flavor" to #Appetizerweek, a multiblogger event complete with cookware/cooking tools giveaways. Here is a vegetarian appetizer that can be customized with a variety of toppings to add flavorful vegetable options to your game day spread.

I didn't plan it, but apparently this summer's theme was 'get the kids to eat eggplant in a new way'. I usually cube and roast eggplant for use in spaghetti sauce, but this time I roasted whole eggplants, in lovely shapes from our CSA farm share, and used the flesh with Indian spices to make a creamy dip.…Continue
In an effort to eat less meat, I've been trying to put together some yummy recipes. Here is a delicious one from lunch today! I don't really measure when cooking - these are rough estimates. This recipe would be good with whatever ratio you wish.

This sauce lets the beauty of a freshly picked tomato, grown for flavor, not ability to travel, shine through. It's easy to make--if you're a ninja you probably don't even need a cutting board--and keeps your kitchen cool to boot.…Continue
We recently harvested cucumbers and carrots from our garden here in Baltimore City (Boone Street Garden) and I decided to marinate the veggies in equal parts rice vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and honey to make…Continue
