Thought I would post this early as beautiful fresh tomatoes in our neck of the woods are not too far away. With an abundance of heirloom tomatoes making stewed tomatoes is a great way to use them up. Although for weeks on end we just eat them fresh off the vine.
We do not do much [...]
We are huge lovers of pesto in this household. Each year I make Organic Garlic Scape Pesto which we freeze to have throughout the year. This is the first time I have made Tomato Pesto and Oh My Goodness, do we ever love it.
As mentioned in previous posts, every year, we buy our local organic [...]
This is a recipe where you could certainly use cream cheese, however, in this household I always make Yogurt Cheese – or dripped Yogurt. Recently, I discovered there is a company in California called Green Valley Organics that makes lactose free dairy products including sour cream and cream cheese. Oh heaven! It is very difficult [...]
This easy pan fried fresh gray cod was a lovely dinner enhanced by a tasty Tarragon Parsley White Wine Sauce. When using a white fish such as cod, halibut, or snapper just about any herb sauce will enhance the delicate flavors of the fish. (make the Tarragon Parsley White Wine Sauce first, and keep on [...]

Our neighbor gifted us with freshly caught shrimp – so delicious! [...]
Mercy…this was heaven on a plate. Seriously, seriously supreme deliciousness happening here.
Recently, I met a lovely woman who mentioned she was getting ready to harvest her garlic, and would I like to buy some? Oh yes indeed! Just check this out:
In my world this is a thing of true beauty. Then this kind lady also [...]
Oh how I live for summer! This is such a simple, beautiful, and tasty salad to have during the summer. Using yellow and red tomatoes gives this salad such vibrant color. The key to this salad is to marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator, then remove from the fridge to come to [...]
This is the second cauliflower from our garden! Who knew we could grow cauliflower in our ever challenging garden? Now I wish I had planted more – next year. As it turns out, DH is not all that crazy about cauliflower, but he did say it is much more sweeter and tastier than store bought. [...]
We have fresh Garlic Scapes at our local farmers market – time to make Garlic Scape Pesto – yum! I have used Garlic Scapes fresh in a salad and stir fries, so I thought it would make a fabulous Pesto – and yes it does!
This is a picture that makes me a very happy girl:
