Springdell Roast Chicken, Chapter 3- Leftover Chicken Pot Pies 2

In yesterday’s entry, I shared about stock and gravy. Today’s goal is to keep the chicken new and exciting for the fam. Monday morning while finishing the stock, I pulled out a ball of my prepped dough (I like this recipe from Bob’s Red Mill) and placed it on the counter to […]


Springdell Roast Chicken, Chapter 2- Gravy and Stock

The Springdell chicken is the gift that keeps on giving. After last night’s chicken roast-and-post, I didn’t want to leave y’all hanging on what happened with the remains of Chicken D. Licious, Esquire. This is an epic saga, no morsel goes unloved. Last night before I prepped the chicken for […]


Sunday Dinners: Springdell Roast Chicken, Chapter 1- The Adventure Begins

A home cooked meal like our grandmothers used to make is always nice, but when you have young kids, who has the time? Sarah and I do, but only about every other week if we’re lucky.  On Sundays we have committed to having Sunday dinners with each other. One Sunday her […]


Happy Valentine’s Day! Honorable Mentions

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!  As we all get prepared to snuggle in for the next blizzard, I thought I’d share some of the Springdell treats that didn’t make it into their own blog posts this time around.  I had made some Sweet Potato and Quinoa Chili  with items from […]


Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Sweet and Sour Apple Cider 1

I have absolutely no idea why the apple cider is still in the fridge.  Usually my youngest son drinks this down in no time.  I think the only thing that saved it until now is that it was on the top shelf of the refrigerator, out of sight for the […]


Cornmeal Mush

I have just about exhausted Winter Share box #7, but that doesn’t mean the ride is over!  I picked up my Springdell Meat Share on Saturday and I’m excited to dig in! For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Springdell Meat Share (aka Meat Subscription), it runs much […]


Potato and Hot Italian Sausage Bake 2

Tonight I knew I was going out so I needed a one dish meal that I could prepare ahead and just pop it in the oven for the family before I left.  I pulled out some Springdell hot Italian sausage, Springdell potatoes, some scallions, cheese, milk and dill.  Since you […]


Make Your Own Pizza Day- The Winter CSA Version 4

Ok, so this isn’t as much of a recipe as it is a concept…  Every other week or so, we gather up some of the veggies from our CSA, a jar of our Springdell Summer CSA tomatoes, and some shredded mozzarella cheese for a “Make Your Own Pizza” party.  We […]


Meatless Monday: Slow Cooker Lentils, Veggies and Rice 2

I will be honest with you, when I saw the bag of lentils in my share I totally had no idea what to do with them. I have never cooked lentils.  I’m pretty sure if you are a CSAer you know this feeling:  hmmm, I have no idea what that […]


Sunday Dinner- Slow Cooker London Broil with Roasted Beet Carpaccio

Today is Ben’s 5th birthday party!  I simply can not believe 5 years has gone by since he was born. At his request, we are all heading into Legoland Boston for an adventure.  It is still my turn for Sunday dinner, however, so I am going to write about my […]
