Baked Veggie Rings with Herb Dip

OnionRings-3

I’m not a sweets person. I don’t often crave chocolate, I can go without candy, and if given the option, I’d take potato chips over a donut. I do really love ice cream, but I think that’s because Tim is so good at making it. But, even then, Continue Reading

Broccoli and Goat Cheese Wraps

BroccoliWraps-5

I saved a wrap for Tim to eat when he got home from work. He came into the office and told me that it was really good. He loved how the broccoli was tender, with just a bit of crunch. That the nuts gave more crunch. Continue Reading

Potato Pancakes

PotatoPancakes-5

It’s finally arrived. The day of my favorite meal: Thanksgiving. I don’t know if it’s my favorite because it only happens once a year though. If I could only have one meal for the rest of my life, I don’t know that it would be Continue Reading

Roasted Broccoli and Squash with a Basil and Tahini Sauce

RoastedBroccoliSquashBasilTahiniSauce-8

As I type this, I’m practicing my songs for the Christmas concert in December. This seems wrong because the weather doesn’t match the feel of the songs. I don’t know if it will ever not be weird to me to have 90 degree weather in October, but Continue Reading

Winter Squash Dip

WinterSquashDip-3

I’m a big supporter of fall. I love it when the leaves change color, the chill that creeps into the air, and the winter squash that start to appear in our Abundant Harvest Organics boxes. This fall is no different. I’m in the mood for Continue Reading

Green Bean Fries

GreenBeanFries-4

I’m crazy about French fries. With a burger they’re fabulous, topped with gravy and cheese curds they’re comforting, with a hearty dip they’re a meal. Of course they don’t have to be made with potatoes. Parsnips, carrots, and summer squash all work perfectly. And while we’re at it, Continue Reading

Bean and Veggie Mélange

BeanVeggieSaladDip-7

I called this a “mélange”, which is French for “mixture”. It seems so versatile that I don’t want to limit it by calling it a dip or a salad. A dip implies the need for some sort of scooper. Corn chips would work well. I’m Continue Reading

Nopales and Tomato Relish

NoplaesTomatoRelish-6

After eight years of subscribing to Abundant Harvest Organics, one might expect that I’d know all the fruits and veggies. There wouldn’t be any that I still needed to try… right?! Wrong. Nopales. The nopal is the pad or leaf of the cactus. It has Continue Reading

Artichoke Heart Dip

ArtichokeHeartDip-7

When I was a kid we ate artichokes dipped in mayo. Nothing fancy. We each got a whole artichoke and we dipped then scraped it all off with our teeth. That’s the simple way to do artichokes. And you could do that here too. Just steam the artichokes, dip Continue Reading

Hearty Winter Salad with Dill Dressing

WinterSalad-7

Very rarely do I want a break from soup when the weather is cold. But, every once in a while it’s ok to take a breather from a steaming bowl of goodness. And I really do love the crunch of raw veggies. I also like Continue Reading

Spring Rolls with Spicy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

SpringRolls-8

Today, I was inspired to try something new. Something I’ve never attempted before. Spring Rolls. What a fun idea! I felt like I was playing as I cut the avocado and veggies into matchsticks. And then as I whisked the dip and the emulsion came Continue Reading

Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad

CreamyCucumberTomatoSalad-2

Creamy dreamy salad. Perfect for these last days of summer. The tomato is ripe and sweet, the cucumber crisp and cool, the dressing bright and herb-filled. It’s one of my favorite ways to eat salad. A couple of months ago, I planted a sprig of Continue Reading

Parsnip Fries with Dip

ParsnipFriesWithDip-8

I have something to confess. Other than roasting parsnips, or using them in soups, I don’t have many other ways that I use them.  Maybe because I know how good they are roasted. Think fried plantains meets roasted carrots.  I figured that it was time Continue Reading
