The “Tell” – Springdell Summer CSA Pickup #18

Hello everyone, Jess and Sarah here.  Did you make it to the ‘Dell for the Halloween bash today?  If so, we hope you had as much fun as we did!  If not, do tune in tomorrow where we will recap some of today’s fun festivities.  Thank you to Jamie and […]


Red Kuri Squash and Chicken Stew

This is a great cold weather comfort dish. You could choose to make this with boneless chicken which would make serving easier, but I chose to use the full chicken to get the extra flavor from cooking with the bone in chicken.


Slow Cooker Char Siu Pork

This roast is an Anderson family favorite. It calls for five spice powder (I don’t recommend omitting), which the Asian markets carry for 89 cents as of the time of this writing. While you’re there, grab some hoisin, fresh ginger and soy sauce, and give this one a try. It’a a great way to enjoy those larger tougher (and less expensive) cuts of pork (such as Boston Butt), plus it makes lots and the leftovers are great! Serve with peas, bok choy, slivered apples, or whatever similar fresh side is in season.

Cinnamon Apple Crumble Pie

This one is from Bon Apetit and it’s pretty yummy! I changed up the varieties of apple based on what I had on hand, and it was all very tasty! If you need to cut corners, a pre-made crust will work on the bottom.
