Overnight Dill Pickles

July 20, 2013


We are in the midst of one hell of a heatwave in New England, and cooking- read: turning on any heating appliance- is so far off of my radar that I’ve been surviving on peanuts, dried tart cherries, cereal and delicious raw milk (from one of my camp instructors whose family owns a dairy farm), […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

June 21, 2013


I wanted to get this recipe up as I know it’s a big strawberry picking weekend in New England. I went picking last weekend at Tougas Farm in Northboro, MA and was blown away by the quality of the berries. Of 26 total pounds I picked, about 4 lbs went straight to this recipe for […]

Curried Cauliflower and Parsnip Soup

March 4, 2013


I’m terrible at following recipes. Or rather, I’m seemingly incapable of taking the time to seek out recipes and then prepare dishes accordingly. I don’t know what it is- my oft-hectic, job-to-job schedule, the fact that I’ve been working at a restaurant for over a half-decade, my taste for improv (thank you, Maura Morrison; EVERYONE […]

Black Radish and Potato Pancakes

March 2, 2013


Oh my, where oh WHERE to begin. What a month it is has been, and now, all of a sudden, it’s March. The days are longer, warmer and louder with the hum of neighborhood birds. And I have a LOT of projects- here, there, and everywhere (literally)- to work on. Finally, I am where I […]

Fermented Apple Peel Vinegar (+ Switchel)

October 9, 2012


Apples, in their many possible forms, are one of my *favorite* foods. I’m extremely appreciative to live in an area of the country that, despite its own share of drought and freezes, has seemed to fare better than other, harder-hit agricultural communities throughout the US. I’ve been drying a lot of apples this fall, and […]

Roasted Corn Salsa

October 5, 2012


I’ve got loads to do today so I’ll get right to the point! I’m a big fan of Local Kitchen, another locavore-focused blog of the Northeast. I’ve tried out a handful of Kaela’s recipes this season, and a couple were standouts (you should totally try her marinated dried eggplant, as it could quite possibly change […]

Basic Tomato Sauce

September 13, 2012


My Internet is back, finally (damn you, Comcast). But the canning crunch is really on now. It’s amazing how quickly it seems we went from long, hot, sticky days to comfortably-warm afternoons and evenings to down-right chilly mornings and nights. Heck, my porch has become a temporary veggie “crisper” at night since I currently have […]
