Honorable Mentions – Springdell Summer CSA pickup #15

Hello to our Fellow Springdellians!  As we have rounded the corner into autumn, there are a multitude of lovely squash varieties coming our way!  Our Fellow Springdellian and Farm Intern Alina is working hard to bring us all some more ideas for the different squashes we’ll encounter.  For those of […]

Slow Cooker Applesauce

What to do with all your apples? Make slow cooker applesauce! Cinnamon sticks, a splash of lemon juice, and a bunch of apples is all you need! Jar it, freeze it, or eat it right away!

Chicken, Bacon, Squash “pie”

I really love the show The Great British Baking Show on PBS.  It’s one of my favorites, and I must admit I watch cooking shows all the time.  I was watching this past Sunday night and it was pie night on the show.  One contestant made a chicken, bacon, and butternut […]

Chicken, Bacon, Squash “Pie”

You can go pie crust or puff pastry with this one, and like most of our recipes, the ingredients are flexible! Make it your own depending on what type of bounty you have kicking around!

Meatless Monday – Potato Leek Soup

Happy Meatless Monday, My Fellow Springdellians!  Jess here.  Today was a great day to go meatless as we have a bounty of hearty veggies to work with.  Yesterday was also the last day of the first season of the Westford Community Gardens, so I was pulling up many veggies there […]

Potato Leek Soup

This hearty adaptation of Potato Leek Soup was brought to our attention by fellow Springdellian Dawn DeMeo, fresh from Cooks Illustrated. Veggie broth may be substituted for chicken broth or stock (obviously negating the “vegetarian” status of the dish.) We love this soup because it uses the whole leek to flavor the broth, giving the final product a beautiful green color often missing from this type of soup. The perfect accompaniment for a big ‘ole crusty piece of bread!

Sunday Night Dinner – featuring Braised Cabbage and Apple Cookie Pizza

Tonight Alex was requesting ribs for dinner, so ribs it was.  I made some corn bread slathered with homemade honey cinnamon butter and braised some cabbage and carrots to go along side.  Pretty delicious even before we cut into the caramel apple cookie pizza, I know it’s a mouthful, full […]

Apple Cookie Pizza

This was quite a decadent creation of Sarah’s at a fall Sunday Dinner. Please note that there are white chocolate chips in this recipe, which are not on our “staples” list. There’s also a braised cabbage bonus recipe here as well!

Sarah’s Braised Cabbage

Sarah’s low and slow braise of cabbage, carrots and garlic is quite easy and delicious! The veggies accompanying the cabbage are flexible. Give yourself some time to cook it, as it spends a couple of hours in the oven. The outcome is worth it!

Roasted Delicata Squash with Sage Crumbles and Maple Cider Glaze

Hello my Fellow Springdellians, Jess here to talk about squash!  As we are starting to see in our share boxes, squash comes in all shapes and sizes.  As the days permit, hopefully we can share a bit about each one that the ‘Dell has to offer. Tonight I’m taking on […]
