Kajmak Fresh Tomato Soup

Why this soup? I do like tomatoes and a really good creamy soup using them, but truthfully I had an excess amount of tomatoes that were starting to age. There was no way those babies were going to be wasted! I also had some kajmak – more of what this is in a moment – […]

Pass the pasta

Happy world pasta day! It appears that the first reference to pasta was back in the 12th century in Sicily. Much has changed. A lot has stayed the same! While I do not know what the first shape looked like — now, we have oodles of shapes and tastes to choose from — the basic […]

Wait! #DontGetTiredOfPumpkin

Have you noticed all the posts about pumpkin this, and pumpkin that even before autumn told us it had arrived? Folks get that feeling… for warmth, comfort, and any fruit or vegetable that naturally glorifies the brilliance of fall colors like red, yellow, and orange.

If you can’t find honey ginger white balsamic vinegar, then consider using apple cider vinegar. (Missing from picture below is maple syrup. Time to make another batch so […]

The Last Supper

The Last Supper I’ve been on another journey, a journey about food. A few months ago in June 2015, I began a challenge to eat at least one local food item every day for 100 days. The summer edition for this 100-mile “diet” took me through the peak season here in what I call northern […]

Saucy-Meaty Meat Sauce

Search for a recipe for homemade meat sauce and you’ll likely get a seemingly endless list of choices. Why is it I suggest that this newly created meat sauce recipe is the best you’ll ever taste? (And I’m not even Italian! :D) Because it is cram-packed with ingredients sourced from local farmers, gardeners, and grocers. I truly […]

Half Time! #100winter16

I can’t believe it! 50 days have already gone by: I’m half-way through the winter edition of incorporating at least one local item within a 100-mile radius every time I eat a meal. *whew* While it is a bit more challenging foraging for ingredients in winter than summer, it’s actually turning out to be not […]

Chocolate Yum with Lime Basil Strawberry Sauce

Hark. What’s that sound? Could it be you having a moment with this delicious and nutritious pudding or if you’d rather, a slurp-it-with-a-straw smoothie?! Top it with the sauce and it may very well become a party in your mouth. (I think it’s that good.) I have to tell you that some chocolate recipes leave me too jumpy […]
