CSA Week Three and Four

July 25, 2013


Last week I went out of town. Luckily one of my wonderful neighbors was able to make the weekly pick-up, so I arrived home to find a fridge full of delicious veggies waiting for me. Week Three was slightly less abundant than usual, due to stretch of 90+ degree days, which tend to be hard […]

Sometimes There Is No Recipe

September 10, 2012


When my fridge is full of vegetables and my stomach is grumbling I haven’t got time to follow a recipe.  I haven’t even got time to write it down as I make it up.  This was one of those times.  I had broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh basil in the fridge.  Hmm, I said to […]

Dinner at Pacific Rim

June 28, 2012


When we go on vacation we always go out for one really special dinner.  This year we decided to go to Pacific Rim in downtown Ann Arbor, MI.  We’d never been there before, and weren’t sure exactly what to expect, but the menu looked good so we decided to give a shot. The food was […]

Amaranth Salad

July 19, 2011


Amaranth is another grain I’ve been meaning to experiment with for a while.  It’s tiny compared to most of the grains I use, and it comes from really fabulous flowers.  (They look like giant magenta hands making rude gestures…)  One thing that really did catch me off guard was the smell while it cooked- it […]

Strawberry Mint Salad with Chocolate Balsamic Dressing

June 28, 2011


This week I found myself in a kitchen full of delicious fresh ingredients.  When presented with an opportunity like this I just have to try something new.  Several of the combinations I tried were really tasty, but this salad was the clear winner in every category.  It’s light, unusual, beautiful, easy to make, and almost […]
