Lacto-Fermented Green Beans

Lacto-Fermented Green Beans

'Tis the season for pickling!  It is the perfect way to preserve all that beautiful late-summer produce so it can be enjoyed all year long.  Plus, if you're making lacto-fermented pickles you're cultivating beneficial bacteria (probiotics) to give your body a boost in immunity, gut-health, and mood. I'm into pickled vegetables for many reasons. … [Read more...]

Spicy Garlic Kale

Spicy Garlic Kale

'Tis the season of kale!  It is starting to flood the farmers markets, pop-up in weekly CSA farm shares, and be ready for harvesting in the garden.  For me, kale is a year-round vegetable, but there is nothing like getting it fresh at the beginning of the season.  Scoop some up and give this dish a try.  Or keep this in your back pocket for that … [Read more...]

Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler

As you may recall, I'm not much of a baker.  There is way too much measuring and precision, plus most baked goods are filled with not-so-nourishing ingredients.  But this cobbler is my ideal baked dessert - it couldn't be easier, doesn't require any detailed measuring, is filled with healthy whole foods ingredients, and tastes … [Read more...]

Thyme Scented Pattypan Squash Ingredients … [Read more...]

Red Clover Tincture

Red Clover Tincture

One of my favorite summer activities is harvesting!  I have a natural instinct to always look around me and gather things.  I've always been this way - tucking herbs in my pockets, picking flowers, or finding wild berries to snack on.  And let's not forget gathering fresh vegetables and fruit from the garden - that's the absolute best! Since I … [Read more...]

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 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...]
