Zucchini & Summer Squash Galette

Galette, a free-form French pastry, includes some of my favorite elements: Handmade, rustic, plenty of butter, and filled with cheese and vegetables, this pastry makes a great addition to – or centerpiece of – any breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Flaky, warm and savory, this dish is sure to satisfy. Here’s how: INGREDIENTS: 2 or […]

Summer Tacos

I prefer my food in the summer to be fresh and cooling, like salads, tomato sandwiches, and TACOS! Tacos in my house include lots of garden-fresh veggies like cabbage, corn, carrots, scallions, cilantro, tomatoes… Mmmm. I like to combine my veggies into one big salad or ‘slaw, and then keep it in the fridge for […]

Garlic Scape Pesto

The first time I saw garlic scapes was at a farm stand down the road from my house. I had never cooked with them before, but thankfully the grower had put a pile of printed out recipes next to the scapes for sale. That’s where I picked up this recipe for garlic scape pesto. It’s […]

Noodle Soup (Pho) in a Jar

I recently saw one of those recipe videos on Facebook for pho in a jar and thought it would be the perfect take-along for lunch. The options for this recipe are nearly limitless, but they all carry along a similar theme: fresh vegetables, noodles, and broth (meat and tofu are optional but lovely additions, too). […]

Fiddleheads

Vermonters come out in droves for the first green things to sprout after a long winter. The tender new foliage of dandelions, ramps, and fiddleheads are delicious and filled with nutrients. One of my favorites has become fiddleheads. Now, before you go picking the uncoiled heads of any old fern, know that there is a […]

Vegetable Broth

Vegetable broth is easy to make, and so good for you. It’s also part of many delicious recipes, like risotto, stews, and soups, including squash soup. Vegetable broth can also make use of the leftovers from vegetables you have used for other dishes, so it’s a great way to get the most out of your […]

We’ve got salad greens in the CSA shares this week, and Farmer Kyle shared with us his own personal recipe for salad dressing. I also have a go-to recipe that is quick and easy to make. Check them both out below, and give one or both a try on your next salad. And if you […]

Roasted Bok Choy

Bok choy can be used just as any other winter green – in stir fry (like this stir fried bok choy with ginger and garlic), soups (like this buckwheat noodle soup with bok choy), or sauteed with garlic and lemon (isn’t everything good prepared this way?). All are yummy! But my favorite is roasted bok […]
