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

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

Until now… ….and that’s what happened to the blackberries. Thank … Continue reading

My First Heirloom Tomato

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

Hello World

>I’m new to food blogging and I’m so excited to share and to learn. I love to cook, but I hate doing dishes. I am not a professional chef, I have so much more to learn and experience in cooking and I’m looking forward to it! I draw my inspiration from the flavors of different … Continue reading
