Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

Cupcakes, take 2. These were the unfortunate cupcakes that failed so miserably last weekend. Luckily, the flavor itself was not at fault; but rather the recipe I chose for the frosting. Cooked buttercream and...

Chicken, Grated Beets, and Beet Greens with Orange Butter

Chicken, Grated Beets, and Beet Greens with Orange Butter

I didn’t like tomatoes until I had really good, fresh, ripe heirloom tomatoes. I didn’t like salami until I tried the good stuff. And you know what, I didn’t like beets, either. But this...

Garlic Scape Beef Satay

Garlic Scape Beef Satay

For the past few weeks we’ve almost had more garlic scapes than we can use. Almost. With each weekly handful, we’ve continued to find new and unusual ways to make the most of them...

Beet Green and Goat Cheese Crostini

Beet Green and Goat Cheese Crostini

More greens. More goat cheese. Another bruschetta. There are obviously some common themes in our posts recently, mostly due to our csa. I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of...

Pizza Bianca

Pizza Bianca with Goat Cheese and Greens

There were some truly delicious goodies at the Sweet Relief bake sale a few weeks back (which, by the way, ended up raising $1000 for flood relief! Go us!) Taylor and I, as much...

Spanakopita with Swiss Chard and Homemade Ricotta

Spanakopita with Swiss Chard and Homemade Ricotta

I love Swiss chard. The bunches of “bright lights” we’ve got growing in a pot outside aren’t doing so hot (not sure what would cause chard to stop growing but it’s been “not quite...

Brie and Garlic Scape Pizza

Brie and Garlic Scape Pizza

I’m always on a quest for the best pizza crust recipe. Both Taylor and I love the thin and crispy kind, so at least we are in agreement of what the “best” will be....

Weekend Update

Thought you would all want a little garden update, considering the last time I posted these pots were still empty and the itty bitty seedlings were still in the shower. My how they grow...
