A hearty salad with a perfect blend of autumn flavors. Spicy arugula, earthy lentils and beans, sweet apples, salty feta, nutty pecans, and a red onion bite, highlighted by a tangy apple cider vinaigrette. This is an absolute favorite.
Fresh berries picked from Red Fire Farm were the star of this beautiful and divine dessert. Whipped cream with vanilla, cardamom, and lemon zest to top it off.
Butternut, kale, shallots, and herbs from Red Fire Farm. Sweet Italian sausage from Hettie Belle Farm. Mozzarella from Maplebrook Farm (via Red Fire CSA). A super easy, delicious, savory dish straight from our local farms. <3
Creamy, rich, colorful comfort food without making you feel bogged down after eating it.
A spicy side dish that goes with just about anything. If there’s any left over have it for breakfast topped with a poached egg!
The sweetness of the mango coconut rice tames the strong flavor and spice from the chili garlic sauce.
A stuffed, roasted, fresh poblano pepper with a flavorful mixture of beef, beans and cheese. We made extras and they were great left over.
A black bean base, zingy pickled jalapeños, roasted tomatoes, what’s not to love about this?!?
Creamy, cheesy, flavorful & satisfying. This is my new go-to recipe for chicken casserole. No stuffing mixes or condensed cream soups here, no wanna-be cheese either.
Creamy spinach with chunks of Indian cheese and spices.
Just a little dab of bacon fat and a parmesan rind really round out this dish. It has a bright finish.
This flavorful stew was a great way to finish off the cold and snowy day. Rich, warm, Indian flavors come together with lots of nutrient-packed veggies for a dish that’s both tasty and healthy.
I know it sounds like blasphemy, but we actually had beef short ribs left over. I decided to add them to this lovely Turkish-inspired soup and it was a home run!
This dish is a lovely combination of sweet & salty, with a tiny bit of heat (which can easily be omitted or kicked up). Plus it has the luxury of being mostly ready when you walk in the door from a long day at work.
This is a really lovely meal to make on a cold and snowy day. We had it over rice for dinner, then when we reheated it for lunch the next day we had it without and it was equally as good. Even though it starts with a couple of pieces of bacon, it’s a fairly lean recipe. The Cotija cheese is a bright pop of flavor on top and the cilantro really finishes it.
I’ve actually been making this for years, but haven’t posted it here until now. This recipe doesn’t have potatoes or corn, but the creamy cauliflower atop the other veggies mixed in with the meat make for pure comfort food.
So many great flavors all together in one bite! I used chorizo from my Hettie Belle Farm meat CSA and it instantly became a favorite. This makes a hearty appetizer or even main dish.
Just roasted a duck? Make some duck stock and get this refreshing soup into your mouth. You won’t be sorry.
So simple. So easy. So delicious.
Fishcakes are always tasty, but the smoky poblanos add a new flavor dimension to these.
The dough isn’t quite as easy to work with as scones with regular flour, but this gluten free brunch treat is tasty.
One of my all time favorite, rich, chocolaty desserts. Serving with salted caramel sauce is just a no brainer in my book.
So many great flavors come together in this spicy, hearty soup. The yogurt crema tops it off perfectly.
This just gets better with time – it’s the kind of dish that soaks up dressings and ages with grace.
Next time I may try adding a tablespoon of goat cheese to the mascarpone mixture to give it a tangy hint.
Rich. Thick. Creamy. Sweet. Savory. Hearty. Delicious.
Slightly crunchy, a little salty, it has the chew factor, it has texture, a little bit of sweet offered up by the dried fruits, and a teeny bit of heat.
Love whipped cream but don’t do dairy or just want a different option?
Some recipes call for honey, agave, or coconut nectar, but I think these cakes are perfectly sweet enough without it.
Because vegetables smooshed into fried cakes are always tasty…
A sweet, cold treat for those hot summer days. Inspired by Mark’s Daily Apple.
