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‚Äôs not that the other vendors¬†aren‚Äôt wonderful, they really¬†are, and I buy¬† from them often as well, it‚Äôs 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

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

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
