Kale Powder

If you ever have too much kale on your hands, and no plan to freeze for later use, this is a great way to decrease the volume while still keeping this veggie within arms reach.

Zucchini Pesto Frittata

There are a couple of reasons why Frittatas are really cool.  First off they are extremely versatile.  You can use just about any vegetables in a frittata, and I will show you tonight that I even used leftovers!  Frittatas are tasty, easy to make, and pretty impressive for when you […]


Sunday Dinner – Summer Borscht and Peach Melba

I will admit that before this season I never did anything with my carrot tops except to feed the pigs at Springdell last year or compost them.  It really is a shame because last year in our trial garden (just a tiny spot on the side of the house to […]
