It’s that time of year folks! Cookie exchanges are in full swing and I know all of you are gearing up for your holiday baking.  If there is one dessert that I cannot resist, it is a cookie.  I don’t know what it is about cookies, but I love them, any type,...
Squash Biscuits

Squash Biscuits

Squash Biscuits are a great way to add some color to your table and get an extra serving of vegetables in your meal. What does one do with leftover squash puree?  Two weekends ago, I had a friend over to cook from my CSA and enjoy my tasty farm fresh eggs, since her...
Squash Carrot Bread with Cream Cheese Glaze

Squash Carrot Bread with Cream Cheese Glaze

I have a confession to make – I actually made this recipe 3 weeks ago and I’m just getting to share it with you now.  I am so ashamed of myself, I am so behind on posting right now, I have two other recipes that I also cooked up a few weeks ago that still...

Short and sweet tonight.  Nothing extremely special tonight, although I’m still trying to figure out what type of squash we got this week.  They said it’s pumpkin and I realize that it is but I would like to know what kind.  I think it might be jarrahdale but I’m not...
The Second Annual Bacon Takedown

The Second Annual Bacon Takedown

When you walk into an event and the first thing they do is hand you a bag of bacon swag and a strip of bacon you know it is going to be a good event.  About a week and a half ago, I opened up my inbox to see an invite to attend The Bacon Takedown at The Bell House in...

Bubby’s Peanut Butter-Chocolate Pie

Just a warning – this post is going to be a little bit sappy.  Sweetie, this one is for you.  Happy Anniversary. Three years ago I got to marry my best friend and it was the best day ever (every bride says that right?) However, I mean it, seriously.  I mean, do...
CSA Week 18

CSA Week 18

One of the things I really appreciated last year with our CSA was the end of season survey they sent us.  We were able to let our farmer and core group members know what we liked and dis-liked about the CSA and they were then able to make changes to better operate the...
