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

Kohlrabi Stuffed with Cabbage and Apple

Stuffed Kohlrabi-3

When I think of kohlrabi, I think of a taste that’s like a combination of broccoli and cauliflower. It’s kinda sweet and mild and buttery. When I look at kohlrabi, I think of Yoda… Green, kinda funny looking, but really awesome when you give it 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

Cream of Squash Soup

SquashCarrotSoup-5

This summer, like most summers, I planted a garden. We used the compost that I’d been working on for a year. We bought organic dirt, and I rummaged around for the seeds that I’d been saving. Some were from packages (and probably a few years old Continue Reading

Veggie Pot Pie

VeggiePotPie-5

Pot pie is one of my favorite foods. I think I say that a lot though. So many foods are favorites that I’m starting to lose track. I guess it depends on the season. Pot pie is one of those dishes that I don’t make all Continue Reading

All Season Fennel Pizza

Deconstructed Lasagne

DeconstructedLasagne-7

This is an ode to lasagne.  Or lasagna.  I don’t really care how you spell it. What matters is that it tastes amazing.  But, it’s a lazy lasagne. It’s a quick and easy lasagne. It’s a lasagne whose best parts have taken apart and reassembled. Continue Reading

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
