There’s just something about the feta, spinach roasted pepper combination that I’m really enjoying. It’s a trifecta of flavor with the fresh spinach, sweet pepper and salty, creamy cheese. Tonight I put is all on/in a burger. Just perfect on a hot summer day and boy is it HOT! We are breaking records here in Maryland. I’m loving it! :)
One of the more interesting things about joining a CSA is a fridge full of veggies that you don’t normally buy or eat. I can honestly say I have never bought a turnip in my life. Not that there’s anything wrong with turnips, they just weren’t part of my produce portfolio. You didn’t think you had a “produce portfolio” did you? :) I think many of us get in ruts and buy the same things over and over again which is why I started the whole produce pick concept in the first place.
Anyway, I have found myself with a plethora of spring turnips and they’ve been sitting in my fridge for a couple of weeks now. Read the rest of this post
Sometimes simple is simply DELICIOUS! I can’t get over how much I enjoyed this salad! Normally I’m not a cheese mixed with fruit kind of gal, I’m not sure why. The sweet fruit and the salty, creamy feta did make a great combo!
I also rarely buy salad dressing, but my attempts at recreating a sweet poppy seed dressing have all flopped. So I caved and bought this at Trader Joe’s… Read the rest of this post
I made these for dinner last night and I’m in HEAVEN! What an easy, light, tasty way to make dinner for one (the husband and child stuck with leftovers.) I used to make Skillet Veggies all the time and simple got out of the habit. Not sure why. It’s so easy to make a base of veggies to use with anything… tacos, pizza, wraps, side dish, really, however you want to use them, they work.
Last night I decided to make up just enough for me. Read the rest of this post
My first experiment is a smashing success! You know me and my addiction, if anything even resembles a pizza, I’m game. I thought for sure I’d miss the mozzarella on this but not a chance! This little baby was PACKED with flavor. The sweet tomato paste and peppers with the spices and creamy cheese. I loved it!
One thing you need to know about me… I LOVE a challenge. So when ATHENOS asked if I was interested in becoming a Spokesblogger for their Make a Change for the Feta campaign and coming up with 18 Feta Cheese ideas for the month of July, I was immediately interested.
Here’s the thing… I rarely eat Feta and I don’t think I’m alone here. I mean like it. I get it on my wraps at work all the time. I just never really thought about fun ways to use it at home.
Well, that’s all about to change! Read the rest of this post
I have a confession. This summer loving home cook has no grill. :( We HAD a grill at our old house but it became a casualty of the move and now a new one just isn’t in our budget. Unfortunately the deck where that grill would love to sit is also out of the question but I digress.
As the name suggests I’d much rather throw these on the grill however, they work perfectly fine in the oven. So why not? Read the rest of this post
This is my favorite way to cure a french fry craving at home. They make a great side dish or even a fun snack.
Sometimes I think the white potato gets a bad rep. I normally choose sweet but there’s nothing wrong with a good size Idaho now and then. ESPECIALLY in fry form. :)
Oh boy did I have fun in the kitchen today! I had a mission to experiment and that’s exactly what I did. The result was a light yummy summer meal using lots of produce I got from the farm.
I LOVED it. Then again I made it. Not sure what everyone else will think but I thought I’d share anyway. It was only Little Guy and I for dinner and Read the rest of this post
Confession time… I have NEVER eaten Chard. Ever. I’ve seen it and always thought the colors where amazing but what in the WORLD do you do with it? I mean it’s a big leaf for heavens sake!
I knew joining a CSA would be a good way to get me over the hump with some of the more intimidating veggies and in the first week it already is!
As I mention in the video we joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture.) For those of you that don’t know, basically that means I pay a yearly feel to pick up my weekly “share” of produce that’s grown on the farm. Every week is a little different based on what’s in season and what they harvested. It ends up to be $30 a week and I’m sure I spend that already at the grocery store. Actually I’m interested in how much, if any, my grocery bill will decrease because of this. I’ll let you know. Read the rest of this post
