Carrot-Ginger Soup

Carrot-Ginger Soup

What do you do when a bushel of carrots is on sale for $5?  Well, buy all of them of course! Which is absolutely what I did.  My motto for farmer’s marketing: stock up now, worry about how in the heck you’re going to eat […]

Blackened Corn & Pepper Salsa

Blackened Corn & Pepper Salsa

Corn was 50 cents a cob at the farmers market this weekend, so you better believe I stocked up! My all-time favorite way to eat corn is a quick parboil in salted water, and then finishing it on the grill.  It’s fast, easy, and can […]

Aloo Saag Curry

Aloo Saag Curry

The farmers market produce seems to come in waves around here.  Meaning, I like to buy metric tons of certain vegetables when they look good, and nothing of everything else.  Such was the case with the potatoes and tomatoes last week. There were 1/2 bushel […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

I recently read a quote in one of my cooking magazines that couldn’t have rung more true.  I don’t remember it word for word, but the general gist was, you can buy too many carrots and beets and have them get soft and wrinkly before […]

Coconut Turmeric Curry

Coconut Turmeric Curry

I’ve been all about simplicity lately.  The days are long and hot, which has had me dreading turning on the oven for more than a few minutes, and my work schedule has been crazy (I’m up to 30 hours already and it’s only Wednesday morning!!)  […]

Pad Thai

Pad Thai

Okay, I’m going to start this off with a disclaimer. I am pretty sure this isn’t an authentic recreation of Pad Thai. Whew. Got that out of the way. That being said, please don’t stop reading. It might not be strictly authentic, but I can […]

Tropical Pancakes

Tropical Pancakes

I rarely wake up craving pancakes, but when I do…the cravings are real!! Of course, the one time that I woke up wanting a stack of these light fluffy pillows of buttermilk, sugar and all purpose flour also happened to be right smack dab in […]

Apricot Chili Stir Fry

Apricot Chili Stir Fry

My little garden finally produced it’s first meal-sized crop the other day, and I went straight to the kitchen with it! There were fingerling eggplants, fresh onions, and bucket-loads of bok choy.  I added some garlic and ginger from my fridge, whipped up my favorite […]

Everything Blondies

Everything Blondies

For some reason I had a major sweets craving kick in last week.  I NEVER have that happened, so I was unprepared to say the least, when it hit out of the blue like that!  I tried satisfying it with my old standby of a […]

Zesty Cuke and Tofu Bowl

Zesty Cuke and Tofu Bowl

Do you ever just see an ingredient in the grocery store or at the farmers’ market, and buy it?  Not because it’s on your list, or you had a sudden inspiration of what to do with it, but because, – well-, because it just looks like […]
