Sunday Dinner- Springdell Winter Pantry Pasta Sauce

So yesterday, my fellow blogger Sarah failed to mention during her short and sweet post that she graduated from the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts! Not only did she receive her chef’s hat yesterday, but she also received two awards for having the highest marks!  She is clearly destined for […]


Sweet and Spicy Bacon for Breakfast

I am thinking about cooking my Springdell bacon for breakfast tomorrow. Thinking ahead will give me time to spice rub my bacon, yum! We have established a tradition of at least one big breakfast a weekend since our boys were born.  I think it’s so important to have meals with […]


Fun with Snow and Syrup 2

I apologize to you all for this double post, we had some technical difficulties over here that are being worked out.  I’m hoping you won’t mind being reminded of this fun syrup activity a second time, given all the snow we are about to receive.  Anyhow, back to the regularly […]


Sticky and Sweet Maple Glazed Salmon with Turnip Purée 3

I was at the store today and the salmon looked really pretty.  Or it could be that when I picked up my share on Saturday and saw the maple syrup, I instantly thought of maple glazed salmon, that was still stuck in my head.  Either way, that is what’s for […]


Root Veggie Roulette 2

I chose the name “Root Veggie Roulette” for today’s featured dish because it sounds kind of fancy, and a bit like “roulade”, except not. “Roulette” also seemed appropriate because the dish itself was a gamble. As the self-proclaimed “seat of my pants” blogger/cooker on this site, “roulette” is a fitting […]


Cook it slowly til it’s brown and sweet….. 2

That’s right my Springdell friends, today we caramelize.  Adding heat to fruit and veggies brings out the natural sugars and carbohydrates within and the browning of those sugars is called caramelization.  They become a beautiful deep brown with a sweet taste to them.  The key to this is that they […]


Meatless Monday- Turnip Soufflé 2

I grew up with an aversion to turnips.  I remember them as being giant and bitter and mealy and rather tasteless, and hence was never a fan.  Since being involved with CSAs, I have changed my perspective on many veggies, and turnips are right up at the top of that […]


Sunday Dinner – Chili Baked Potatoes 1

I’ll be honest with you, football may not be my favorite sport to watch (I’m more of a baseball girl, my husband is the Pats fan), but I do love all of the food that goes along with football games.  I can also respect and clearly understand the importance of […]


The “Show”- Winter Share Pickup #6

Today we went by the farm to pick up our 6th Springdell Winter Share box of the season, which consisted of: 2 1/2 gallons of skim milk from High Lawn Farm, Lee, MA (Sarah got 1 qt cream & 1 1/2 gallon low fat milk) 2lb Amish Roll Butter from […]
