Stuffed Beets

I’m sitting here thinking about all of the posts we have done with beets this year. There have been some really good ones and some that I would tweak if I were to make them again.  One thing I can say for all of them is that they have been […]


Sunday Night Dinner – Pizza!

Tonight was pizza night, I love pizza night.  We had a gluten free pizza, a plain cheese pizza and a sausage and potato pizza.  Guess which one I plan on sharing with you tonight?  The grown up pizza of course.  Let’s take a look. Oh yeah.   I started by […]


Spinach Dip

This is one of those nights where I shouldn’t tell people what I had for dinner.  I’m sure you have all done it before.  When you get the kids fed and you forget yourself, or you just don’t feel like cooking up a whole meal, maybe you just have a […]


Roast with a Parsnip Puree

Today I cooked up my eye round roast from my meat share.  This cut can be tough depending on how you cook it.  I use a high heat method for this one, and a paired it up with a smooth parsnip puree.  So, here is an eye round roast: I […]


Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

It’s the weekend.  It’s all about winterizing at our house today.  The hoses were brought in and the outside water turned off.  The tomato cages, chairs from the back deck, clothes line, and sun umbrella are all stashed away for next year.  Lots of leaf cleanup is on slate for […]

Meatless Monday – Broccoli and Potato Pancakes

Good evening, everyone, Jess here.   Tonight I present less of a recipe and more of a culinary caper.   As you may or may not know, I love using CSA veggies to make ebelskivers.  They are little bundles of joy stuffed with cheese, sauce, or other delectable ingredient.  I […]


Pickled Radish Salad with Honey-Lime Avocado Dressing

Hello everyone, Jess here.  I have a fresh and simple recipe to share tonight so I thought I’d spend my time on the soapbox reflecting a little on the “cost” of a CSA. I rarely read the news. My digest of negativity is pretty weak nowadays.  I’m fortunate to have […]
