Beet Balls

A few years ago, I bought the Deceptively Delicious cook book by Jessica Seinfeld.  The book is filled with recipes that contain hidden vegetables, and is marketed towards moms who have kiddos who panic at the site of green on their plate. I've gotten quite a few excellent recipes in there including some great mac and cheese.

Preserving Tomatoes

I love tomatoes.  And tomato sauce.  And tomato based salsa.  And... well anything and everything pertaining to tomatoes. We do have quite a haul at this point though, and so I'm starting to consider how I am going to preserve them for winter. I found this excellent resource that discusses canning and pickling.  (Click here)

Healthier Convenience Foods

So school has started, and for many of us that means busy, harried evenings.  We definitely fit into that camp. Yesterday, I had to pick up my eldest from school, pick up our CSA share, drop my daughter off at softball, pick up my husband from the train, and pick up my daughter from softball

Quick Morning Breakfasts

To be honest, I haven't been trying too many new recipes lately.  My kids have been loving eating the cucumbers and tomatoes raw, and my potatoes have tasted lovely baked. One thing I have been trying to negotiate, however, is morning meals.  With school starting, we need something that is quick and filling and won't

Spaghetti Sauce Success

After my gazpacho disaster, I was a bit hesitant to head out on my own with a recipe.  Luckily lazy me didn't make it to the store yesterday, so I was forced to work with what I had on hand. I decided upon pasta because our pantry was filled with noodles.  My kids get a

Gazpacho or Salsa?

So I was all excited to make gazpacho yesterday.  I had everything -- all I needed to buy from the store was some veggie juice, and we were set. I set up my space in the kitchen; I shooed all the kids into the other room, and I got my food chopper up and running.

Easy Veggies

So we haven't been trying too many new recipes lately.  We've been a bit boring with our food. I found that with some veggies my kids definitely prefer raw, and even with that, there is a much greater chance that they will eat it if they remember picking it up at the farm. Obviously we

Chicken Tomatillo Soup

So I've been wanting to figure out a way to introduce my girls to tomatillos, but they aren't fans of salsa.  Lucky for me, I found this recipe for chicken tomatillo soup.  (Click here) The recipe is a simple one not requiring much more than chicken, jalapeños, tomatillos, and onions.  The great thing about this
