Use up those tomatoes and broccoli from this week’s share!

CSA, Food

Broccoli and tomatoes go together like cherries and pie, yes? If you agree, then you might like this broccoli quinoa salad with lots of herbs and a tangy vinaigrette. And with just a little bit of prep work, it comes together really quickly! Enjoy!

CSA, Food, Recipes

Parsnips. In a muffin? Seriously. If you are one of those people who cringe when you see parsnips in your CSA share…well, listen up because I’ve got a sweet deal for you. These muffins totally rock. They are moist. They are just sweet enough. They have a hint of lemon. And if you don’t really […]

CSA, Food, Recipes

Oh my goodness, I’m feeling like a roasted chili these days. It is hot in Montana this summer! It’s hot outside, it’s hot inside my house, this chili is hot…not spicy hot (unless you want it that way–the go for it!), just hot off the stove hot. I probably should have made a salad for […]

Week 12: eggplant curry will cure these hazy summer day blues

CSA, Food, Recipes

It should come as no surprise that I love food of all kinds, but I particularly love curries. I love the way the simple act of combining 7 or 8 spices into an exotic mixture carries the aroma of far away places to my kitchen. Since I can’t travel to India right now, I’ll settle […]

Best of all, they […]

Week 10 — some ideas on how to use the fennel and patty pan squash

CSA, Recipes

This week’s share gave us patty pan squash (y’know, those little squashes that look like flying saucers?), fennel, and Roma tomatoes. Oh! And BASIL. So I decided to grill for dinner last night, and I added a sweet onion, a few mushrooms, and some Brie cheese to the mix. Then I topped everything with a […]

Week 9 recipe will make good use of those green beans

CSA, Food, Recipes

Dang it’s been hot lately! I think July is going to set some records here in Helena and elsewhere around Montana. When it gets really hot sometimes my appetite goes the way of the dodo and nothing sounds good to eat. I tend to focus on juicy fruits and vegetables–apples, nectarines, tomatoes, cucumbers, sugar snap […]
