This week’s box from my CSA is full of so many of my favorite things. Romaine lettuce, Kale, Green Onions, Fennel, Strawberries, Potatoes, Cucumbers. They have an “exchange” box at the pick-up site and I swapped my carrots out for a 2nd head of romaine. I still have a zillion carrots from previous weeks, we […]
Shred 2 lbs of potatoes, I used the shredder in my food processor, and one sweet onion. I just picked up some walla walla onions that went well. I also used a combination of white, purple and red potatoes to make these look funky :) Place the potato-onion mixture in a strainer, salt the mix […]
Yesterday we pulled up this crazy carrot pairing. Today we found two more. What is going on in my garden? I had no idea!!
I had no idea what carrots got up to when they thought no one was looking!
The spring hasn’t been much of a spring. Cold, wet, wintery days with a few days of sun scattered in there. We’ve been less than thrilled with it but most of my plants have been obviously happy with the rain. Now that they are huge and leafy, I hope it warms up so everything can […]

In recent months, my old, cheapy-cheap stove we installed when we moved in started going dramatically downhill. It took, I kid you not, 40 minutes to boil a pot of water and that was […]
My son ordered the most beautiful salad at La Posta on Easter. Farro, pea shoots, pea blossoms and squid. It tasted wonderful but the addition of the pea leaves, shoots and flowers made it so incredibly pretty. The whole meal was wonderful as usual but this dish really stood out.
Turns out we didn’t invent this drink but it sure was amazing! I definitely prefer this to the standard mimosa. Oh, and we had waffles too :)
I love the CSA season. I can eat ridiculously healthy with very little effort or thought. When all that is in the fridge is vegetables, lunch or a quick snack is so seasonably delicious whether you try or not! The salad was a mix of lettuces, 2 multicolored carrots thinly sliced and one HUGE radish, […]
