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 […]

Sweet Potato, Turnip, and Parsnip Pancakes

   I have some veggies that remind me of the island of the misfit produce at Springdell.  There is a bin at the farm stand with veggies that are sold at a discounted price because they are maybe not as pretty, a little wilted or bruised but still totally usable, […]


Springdell Blade Steaks in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

  So for years, my grandmother (AKA Nan) has been trying to talk me into making a variation of this recipe.  I’ve never been much interested because Glen used to despise mushrooms.  Of course, when Glen and I met many years ago, his diet consisted of pretty standard foods- burgers […]


Asian Shaved Steak Sandwiches with Pickled Bok Choy

Isn’t it great to have neighbors?  I have a neighborhood with tons of kids and really wonderful moms who have become great friends.  When I was practicing for my finals at culinary school I ran out of eggs.  With a crazy amount of dishes to make, there was no time […]
