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.
Inspired by all the tasty goodies from our Red Fire Farm winter CSA share, especially the plump and juicy blueberries.
The ideal, hearty recipe for the lamb chops we got in our meat CSA share this month. Served over mashed potatoes, these chops were savory, full of flavor, and satisfying.
Succulent braised and shredded beef perfect for tacos, enchiladas, salads, or even just to dig into with a fork. Very similar to my favorite carnitas recipe, but with beef instead of pork and some slightly different seasoning.
I served these braised beauties on top of pureed cauliflower and collard greens sauteed with shallots.
My favorite way to roast a fresh ham from the Hettie Belle meat CSA.
Spicy. Tangy. Cheesy. A must try if you love buffalo chicken!
Served with Napa cabbage sauteed with garlic and chili pepper flakes.
Such a vibrant salad, both in flavor and color.
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.
Hearty hors d’oeuvre. Sweet, savory, and tangy. Goes over well with all carnivores (and anyone else who just loves bacon).
I prefer to add a small amount of beans and tomatoes, even though that’s not really what Texas Red Chili is. This is not an authentic Texas Red Chili, but more of an inspired-by recipe.
Thanks to Crust Bakeshop for inspiring a rosemary apple tart out of my kitchen this holiday season. The bacon and caramelized onions are a delicious savory addition.
These Asian style lettuce wraps are great for dinner or an app. They made for a tasty, tortilla-less alternative at a taco themed potluck.
So many great flavors come together in this spicy, hearty soup. The yogurt crema tops it off perfectly.
Thanks to Hettie Belle Farm for the recipe and the beautiful piece of meat. I love their meat CSA!
One of the many gratifying outcomes from allowing a pork shoulder to smoke for hours and then simmering its bone for hours into delectable, smoky stock.
Another idea that stemmed from making so much smoked pork stock and carnitas. And as pictured, it’s a tasty breakfast or brunch option with an egg on top.
A classic choice for when we get a whole duck in our meat CSA from Hettie Belle Farm.
Last night as side dishes with dinner we had tatsoi sauteed with garlic and onions and roasted root veggies. So this morning when we wanted breakfast, I just grabbed some sausage and eggs and turned leftovers into a rich, hearty breakfast that kept us going all day.
One of my all time favorite comfort food recipes.
My go-to choice when I’m in the mood for “butternut” bisque. The melded flavors of sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash are balanced out by the salty bacon and leeks.
A rich, autumn dish that goes over well with any crowd.
Pork loin stuffed with a blend of goat cheese, shallot, garlic, lemon zest, thyme, sage, fennel, and apple.
Inspired by a recipe on Epicurious for pork meatball banh mi, which is fantastic, but these meatballs also stand alone as a great appetizer.
Hearty side dish or hors d’oeuvre with pork belly and cooked in pork fat to add the perfect flavor.
This is pretty much my favorite salad; it has so many of my favorite food items… arugula, grapefruit, avocado, bacon, shallots, pecans, gorgonzola cheese, etc.
