Slow Cooker Caribbean Ox-Tails

This week we’ve been doing some traveling to warm places through our culinary adventures.  On Monday we enjoyed Vegetarian Pho, and our tastebuds took a trip to Vietnam where the weather is holding steadily in the 80s.  On Wednesday, we visited sunny Florida for our citrus fun.  Today, we’ll be taking […]


A Springdell Twist on Shepard’s Pie 1

I have a few nights during the week that I need to have dinners that I can put in the oven and let them cook while I teach piano lessons.  This dish is great for that.  For tonight I used two of the Springdell sweet potatoes from the share as […]


Citrus A-peel

The hardest part about working with share box #8’s citrus has been to keep my boys from devouring it all before I’ve had the chance.  Truth be told, my fellow Springdellians, you probably don’t need any creative ideas for what to do with the fruit itself, as it is all […]


Apple Cider Granita 1

As promised, here is the apple cider granita we had for dessert on Sunday. A granita is a semi-frozen dessert.  It’s Italian, made with sugar, water and pretty much any flavorings you can come up with.  It can be made with the flavors of the seasons, which is why I […]


Meatless Monday- Vegetarian Pho

Happy Monday, my fellow Springdellians!  Today we’ll attempt to travel to Vietnam using our taste buds, (and why not as the temperature is 82 degrees today!) I think we could all use some warming up and one yummy way to do so is with a warm pho. For those of […]


Sunday Night Dinner-Coffee Rubbed Beef Brisket 1

I don’t know if any of you attach memories or moments in time with a certain smell, but I do.  There is a certain smell that I identify with my seventh grade trip to an environmental camp, and a certain smell that reminds me of being a kid playing kickball […]


The “Show”- Springdell Winter Share Pickup #8 4

Here we are again, another day covered in snow and more is falling.  Today, like a ray of sunshine piercing through the winter doldrums came Springdell Winter Share Box #8.  Bursting with vibrant colors and flavor, this share box will be sure to keep us busy and fill us with […]


The “Tell”- Springdell Winter Share Pickup #7

This was a long way to the tell, 3 weeks!  The snows have buried us and we’ve been lucky to be snowed in with such good food!  Here are all the ways that we enjoyed the 7th winter share box of the season. 2 1/2 gallons of skim milk from […]


Springdell Roast Chicken, Chapter 5- Golden Roasted Cabbage

This post brings us to the conclusion of the Springdell chicken saga.   Do you recall this photo from chapter 2? Ahh yes, the makeshift gravy separator. Those flavorful dark brown drippings had a one-way ticket to the giblet gravy train. But what of the golden oils that rose to […]


Springdell Roast Chicken, Chapter 4- Waldorf Chicken Salad 6

If you have followed this epic chicken tale for the past 3 days, you’ve probably noticed by now that I tend to cook by the seat of my pants. Unlike my formally trained counterpart Sarah, everything I know about cooking has been learned from trial and error- lots and LOTS of […]
