Breakfast isn’t usually my thing, but this morning, poach eggs with a drizzle of garlic EVOO and balsamic reduction over a handful of fresh arugula, a medley of cherry tomatoes, and red onions slices alongside simply toasted crostini’s came to mind…
Humbly grateful with our gardener for the bounty of his homegrown zucchini and squash that he shares with us from time to time. One particular favorite is the pattypan squash.
We are fortunate enough to receive some organic vegetables from our friend. From fava beans, to various types of squash, to cucumbers, to zucchini. Today I’m excited to share with you a lasagna recipe I’ve never done before using zucchini.
I have to admit that this is probably one of the best salads I’ve made thus far. If you’re a fan of both tomatoes and anchovies you’ll have to give this one a try!
It’s been a couple of days since our Farm Fresh To You delivery of fresh produce came in. My son’s school and Farm Fresh To You established a fundraising partnership that enables the school to earn 10% back for each home delivery they get.
For lunch today I made two simple dishes…nachos for hubby, our little guy, and myself, as well as, a baked farm-raised trout for my mom. I made both in less than an hour. They are light to the tummy and easy on the budget with usage of items you probably already have in your fridge and/or pantry.
I’ve been given an opportunity to test run a recipe that will be included in an app for iPad–they may even include my pictures (if selected) to be featured along with the recipe. Meanwhile, when I read the recipe in its entirety, I was excited to see that part of the recipe called for spatchcock chicken. The recipe stated that spatchcock chicken is a process that you can ask a butcher to do, but, I thought, what an opportunity to challenge myself, not only in test running the recipe, but achieving one of many techniques I have been wanting to try for quite some time now.
Friendship is based on so many aspects in life. We meet friends through school, through work, through other friends, and naturally through family. But what about through social networking? I discoveredfrom a childhood friend. She takes great scenic pictures and post her pictorial journal on Instagram. Not long after visiting her page daily, I became quite enthralled with this social ‘photo sharing’ phenomena. Sharing ‘photos’ and making friends with complete strangers! I thought to myself…hmm. This could work for me.
