I’m kicking off the new CSA Season right with a Purple Kale and Sun Dried Tomato Salad and a how-to video on storage and prep. Yesterday was our FIRST delivery of the CSA season and what a great start! In our bags we got squash, onions, broccoli, broccoli rabe, spinach, […]


Crisp Fruited Salad with Maple-Yogurt Dressing

You don’t eat meat or dairy?  What DO you eat?  Even though it has now been about a year, I am still asked this question regularly. Folks still think that when animal food are cut out, that there is nothing to eat or whatever is left is cardboard! Does this […]

Creamy Sweet Onion Balsamic Dressing

If you could come back in a second life as a vegetable what would you be? For some reason this was a question that my dad and I would discuss on a fairly regular basis. Now that I’m actually writing this I’m wondering if we are of sound mind. Regardless, […]
