Sunday Slow Sides: Tomatoes

I've been participating in another Slow Travel cooking challenge though I haven't found time to blog about it. So this is a catch-up post. This week's ingredient is tomatoes and the recipe is Fresh Uncooked Tomato Sauce, selected by...

A few scenes (and a meal) from the Farmer's Market

The first day of autumn - I can't believe it! It sure doesn't feel like fall here in NC today - it's warm and muggy. While I love fall and its colors and the cooler temperatures, I sure am...

A few green things...

One of the things about organic gardening is that you sometimes run into some very interesting creepy-crawly creatures, and here's one I found munching away on one of my parsley plants. He was very big and kinda freaky, but...

Sunday Salads: Tropical Rice Salad

This weekend's recipe came from Palma of Palmabella's Passions. This was a fun recipe to play with. I used Lundburg Farms Wild Blend rice, green beans instead of snow peas, and also added some fresh mint. Because I don't like...

Costoluto Genovese

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the best tomato I’ve ever had is of Italian descent. I grow lots of different kinds of tomatoes every summer and like to try new varieties, especially heirlooms. Even though my success with...

Dandelion Greens

There are many "green" reasons for eating seasonally and buying locally but on top of all that, it's simply a fun way to eat. It's exciting to have the first asparagus or strawberries of the year, and I tend...

Summer at the Farmer's Market

Summer is probably my least favorite season for three reasons - heat, humidity, and bugs. It hasn't been too horribly hot this year and the drought is over, thank goodness, but the bugs have been particularly vicious this summer....

Spring at the Farmer's Market

Here’s some stuff I bought from our local market a few Saturdays ago. Clockwise from the eggs, there is lettuce, asparagus, radishes, scallions, baby turnips (both white and red), and cabbage. The brown square to the left is suet...

Farmer's Market Report #1

Our Farmer’s Market is still on its winter schedule (every other Saturday from 10-12) but goes back to the weekly schedule in April (every Saturday from 8-12). I went this morning and it was very crowded and fun – everyone...
