Apple Roasted Barbecue Beef
Apple Roasted Barbecue Beef

As I mentioned earlier, I’m really trying to use everything that I get in my produce box up each week – although it helps if I also use up the items I already have. I happened to have a few Granny Smith apples still (which I tend to prefer over the braeburn I received in [...]

Roasted Radicchio and Cauliflower
Roasted Radicchio and Cauliflower

So tonight I wanted to use up the cauliflower I’d had hanging around in my fridge, so that I could concentrate on playing with my produce box – fortunately, I hit upon an idea that let me do both! The only way I’d ever ~enjoyed~ radicchio before tonight was when Mr. Man and I grilled [...]

Sausage and Kale Frittata
Sausage and Kale Frittata

The Farm Fresh box came last night, and of course, I had to make something with it as soon as possible. I decided to use the Kale in this Frittata for breakfast this morning – although, after I was (of course) committed to it, I realized that this Kale was the sweetest Kale I’d ever [...]

Apple Cheddar Oat Scones
Apple Cheddar Oat Scones

These Scones came out really incredible – I might have to make a batch for the Meet on Friday – that is if I’m not inspired to make something else before then. I usually don’t have quick-cooking oats on hand, but last time I ran out of Rolled Oats and bought some more, I accidently [...]

First Farm Fresh Delivery
First Farm Fresh Delivery

My first box from Farm Fresh – I gotta say, I’m really impressed! Everything is beautiful! I’m looking forward to trying figuring out what to make with everything! What I received: 4 Artichokes 6 Braeburn Apples 4 Tangelos 2 lbs Purple Puruvian Potatos 4 Red Onions 1 bunch of Greens; Pea 1 Fennel Bulb 1 [...]

Buttermilk Potato and Spinach Soup

We had some sun today, yay – although I didn’t get much sleep last night, so unfortunately I missed a lot of the sun catching up on some Zzz’s. When I woke up, Miss Thing was back from school – Mr. Man worked from home today, so he was volunteered to go grab her while [...]

Feeding the Divine
Feeding the Divine

One of the (more) unpleasant parts of the whole remodel process when we first moved in was that I wasn’t able to unpack and use any of my sacred space items. Either there was no space, no time, or it was too dusty and didn’t feel worthwhile. I felt this lack more when I became [...]

Savory Oatmeal with Poached Eggs
Savory Oatmeal with Poached Eggs

If there’s one thing Mr. Man and I can never agree on – it’s breakfast foods. He’s always been a solidly eggs-toast-sausage kinda guy. Which isn’t exactly healthy. Atleast, not the way he eats it… 3(!) eggs and buttered toast… I’ve tried to suggest/offer dishes that included veggies and whole grains, but generally they’ve been [...]

Lime and Roasted Garlic Coleslaw
Lime and Roasted Garlic Coleslaw

In an effort to eat more seasonally (I know, I know – I still have a tomato and berry problem… but a girls gotta have some vices), I decided to try making a fresh salad to accompany our fairly standard meat & potatoes dinner tonight. (Yes, literally – we had steak and mashed potatoes with [...]

Homemade Tarragon Brown Mustard
Homemade Tarragon Brown Mustard

In my recent kick to try and make as much of my own things as I can, I decided I’d try making some homemade mustard the other day. We had it on some roast beef sandwiches the other day with my Homemade Mayonnaise and together, they were incredible. It was so easy, I’m definitely going [...]
