Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond Milk

I'm all for making things yourself (especially real food!), but for some reason I resisted the homemade almond milk craze for a while.  I didn't resist it because I had anything against it, it just took me longer to get all the relevant equipment and get down to business.  But I finally got it together and was blown away by how simple and delicious … [Read more...]

Thyme Scented Pattypan Squash

Thyme Scented Pattypan Squash

In my opinion, pattypan squash is far superior to its cousin yellow summer squash.  It has firmer flesh, a lovely flavor, and the cutest shape around!  It seems to be one of those vegetables that many people are unfamiliar with, so hopefully this recipe will open your eyes to the wonder of the pattypan.

Grilled Peach and Arugula Salad

There is something magical about summer nights.  Seriously.  Everything tastes better, looks more beautiful, and seems more fun.  I'm lucky to live in a city apartment that has a wonderful deck overlooking the rooftops and trees below.  It's one of the best things about our apartment, and part of what makes city-living doable for me.  I spend hours … [Read more...]

Farmer’s Market Radishes with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Radishes with Cilantro Lime Sauce

It all started with these beauties calling my name at the farmer's market.  I mean how could I resist?  Radishes are one of the first early summer vegetables to hit the markets in Boston and they are haltingly beautiful in their deep jewel tones.  Of course I had to buy all three bunches and then get to work developing a delicious recipe that lets … [Read more...]

Spring Parsnip Soup with Crispy Leeks

Spring Parsnip Soup with Crispy Leeks

Spring-dug parsnips are one of my favorite treats.  You probably think of parsnips as a fall food - one of the root vegetables that appear at markets as the temperatures start to get colder.  And you're correct, but some brilliant small farms leave a portion of their parsnips in the ground over the winter and the results are truly … [Read more...]

Green Olive + Preserved Lemon Tapenade

Green Olive and Preserved Lemon Tapanade

You know how sometimes things are just so delicious you want to eat them straight from the bowl with a big spoon?  This is one of those things.  I made this as a topping for some freshly grilled fish, but we ended up eating about half of it scooped onto crackers while we were cooking.  It is so good that you’ll look for any excuse to eat this … [Read more...]

Spring Herb Potatoes

Spring Herb Potatoes

I really love simple food.  So often foodies get caught up in the latest exotic ingredient, or newest cooking technique, and forget about the old standbys.  These tried-and-true recipes have lasted generations for a reason - they always taste good.  Spring herb potatoes optimize this for me.  They are made from humble ingredients, are super easy to … [Read more...]
