Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

Hello Again!

Dear Fellow Eaters, Wow, It has been awhile. Life has been generally crazy for the past few months and has seemed, to me, like a whirlwind. From August until the beginning of November I was working non stop. In the midst of that I was presented with the opportunity to go to Zimbabwe and do … Continue reading

A gift to remind me

This mortar and pestle was sent to me by my dear friend, adopted sister, and fellow blogger CreativeCaterpillar. It was a surprise really. You see, I had wanted a mortar and pestle for so long but I couldn’t remember who knew. Only someone who knows me as well as and as long as CC has would have known! Thank you for this … Continue reading

Corn

I love Corn. Ever since I was a kid, it has been a favorite. Good corn is not incredibly hard to find, but I have found great corn. Fresh, locally grown sweet corn. Feast your eyes on what I feasted on the other day. Believe me, it was great! There has been a lot of … Continue reading

Favoritism, More Tomatoes, and a Sandwich

I try not to have favorites, I really do, but sometimes I fail. In failing, I have decided that I have a favorite farm stand at my Farmers Market. It’s not that the other vendors aren’t wonderful, they really are, and I buy  from them often as well, it’s just that, I love Three Springs Farm. They … Continue reading

Readers Voice- Grilled Cheese vs. Panini

Okay, so I love a good grilled cheese. Grilled cheese and I go way back, I remember learning how to make them on the stove and then in a grilled cheese maker. Personally, I prefer the stove preparation method because I think the bread toasts up nicely that way. On a rainy day, or on a day … Continue reading

See, I told you they were huge!

What happened to the Blackberries?

Remember the gigantic luscious blackberries I posted a picture of in yesterday’s post? Well.. Ever since I read “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter, as a child, I was intrigued by berries and milk (or cream). For some reason I never tried it. Until now… ….and that’s what happened to the blackberries. Thank … Continue reading

You always remember your first...heirloom tomato

My First Heirloom Tomato

Incase you haven’t noticed yet, I really appreciate my Farmer’s Market. I mention it often because every time I go, I get something that is exceptional. This past Wednesday at the green market, as I was shopping for our weekly veggies, I noticed that one of the vendors was selling organic heirloom tomatoes. I went over to look, and I realized that in … Continue reading

I Love the Simple Things

Bread, cheese, and fruit. Each of these are simple and can be hunger pang inducing in and of themselves. Put them together and they become a dangerously delicious addiction. I like to remember a few summers ago when I was at a friend’s house. It was a beautiful, sunny day. The skies were sapphire blue, the … Continue reading

Lavender Eggplants

Hello Fellow Eaters! I found these beauties a few weeks ago at my local Farmer’s Market. The color on them is amazing. They are smaller, more delicate and more sweet to the taste than your regular eggplant. I cut them into wedges and roasted them with a little bit of olive oil (and some summer squash … Continue reading

Mushroom Rice

When I first made this dish for my roomies, they were positive that I had put butter in it. They were also certain that I had put a can of Cream of Mushroom Soup in it. I assured them that I had done neither of those things, instead, I sweated the mushrooms, and roasted a head of … Continue reading
