Coconut Red Curry Summer Vegetables

August 11, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog, where I also publish: The summer crops just keep on rolling in with the waves of heat and moisture. Some of these items, such as the cucumbers patiently awaiting their transformation into canned bread and butter pickles, have been set aside for a specific cooking project. Others, however, are […]

Napa Cabbage Salad with Tuk Trey Dressing

July 16, 2012


Well, the moisture that hovered over 02451 on the radar last night never really turned into rain, just a few droplets here and there. Temperatures have been hanging in the upper 80’s and low 90’s the past several days and are expected to remain there until the end of the week. With little motivation to […]

Oat & Nut Butter Bars

July 10, 2012


I’ve always been a breakfast person. Whether it’s a bowl of oatmeal, eggs and bacon, or the occasional decadent French pastry, I’m usually down.

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 […]
