Dried Rhubarb

May 29, 2012


Rhubarb is one of those heralds of the harvest season in the Northeast. Technically a vegetable but often featured in dessert preparations, it’s typically preserved via canning (stewed, jammed) or freezing. But I’ve been waiting long and hard to get some of these stems dried up. So when I brought home my second armload of […]

Arugula, orange, and fennel salad with citrus vinaigrette

May 7, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: Spicy arugula paired with thinly-sliced fennel and juicy orange segments makes for a light and delicately-flavored salad perfect for our transition into late spring. For a more robust dressing, I suggest replacing 1 tablespoon of citrus juice with equal parts apple cider vinegar. Arugula, Orange, and Fennel Salad  with […]

Cupboard Tart

May 7, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: As you may have noticed, I try to keep things pretty healthy on the farm blog. After all, Waltham Fields is primarily a vegetable farm, and just about everyone could use more of this food group in their lives. But many of those keen to consume a “locavore” or […]

Dressed Beets with Spring Onion

May 1, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: It’s hard to believe that we are now just weeks away from rhubarb, strawberries, and the start of CSA distributions at Waltham Fields. In preparation for this season, I’m exploring cookbooks, websites (the farm has already has some great ideas, too), and just generally keeping my eyes peeled for […]

No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

April 24, 2012


I know it’s been awhile since my last post. I apologize for my lacking blog presence lately. I’m just weeks away from graduating from my master’s program and in the midst of starting up the Learning Garden at Waltham Fields, so my focus has been elsewhere. However, expect to see a plethora of new entries […]

Brussels Sprouts, Two Ways

April 10, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: As I was walking over to my newly-assigned garden plot at Green Rows of Waltham, I took a moment to watch the birds combing what appeared to be a field of old Brussels sprout stalks at the farm. It was then that I remembered purchasing a big bag of […]

Foraging with Russ Cohen, Part I: Stinging Nettles

April 7, 2012


Shortly before receiving the delightful news of my garden plot assignment last Sunday, I was out scouring the forest floor of a nearby reservation site for stinging nettles. Let me backtrack. I met Russ about a year and a half ago at a Waltham Fields’ potluck. Without knowing who he was, we struck up a […]

French Lentil Salad

April 2, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog (the other blog I write for): I am a girl on the go. Between grad school, part-time jobs, and the return of gardening season, only so much of my day can be dedicated to the many, ever-changing culinary adventures I dream up. So when it comes to actually getting […]

Asian Stock & Simple Soup

March 27, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: So it was too good to be true (the incredibly warm weather we just experienced, that is). Like a touch of summer to be relished amidst the transition from winter to spring, the heat came and went, and we are now back to the reality of chilly springtime weather […]

Green Vegetable Green Curry

March 18, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: I feel like I’m a day late and a buck short on this post. The idea to cook up a green vegetable green curry dish coincidentally came to mind just prior to March 17. And though I did prepare the meal on Friday and have been enjoying it all […]
