Beet Gnocchi

If you think you can sell beet pasta to your three year-old on the basis that it’s pink, you will probably be wrong.  But if you want to use your CSA beets in a new and interesting way, this is for you.  When I set out to make the gnocchi, I was put off by … Continue reading

What’s for dinner: Whenever

I’ve lost track of the days. Last weekend was my daughter’s 3rd birthday party and this week has just kind of disappeared. I keep taking pictures of stuff and then forgetting to write about it. So here’s a few that were worth noting. Above, my not as lovely version of Framed Cooks’ Fettuccine with Leeks … Continue reading

What’s for dinner: Saturday

Dinner tonight was slightly experimental. The pasta is just capellini with olive oil, red pepper flakes, sliced garlic, Pecorino Romano, and chopped parsley. The parsley came from today’s CSA box, which is super green heavy. It’s called Pasta Mezzanotte and it takes about ten minutes to make. Super easy. It was fine, but not exciting. … Continue reading

What’s for Dinner: Wednesday

Today is the husband’s birthday, and he requested his favorite dish, Tagine of Lamb and Apricots in Honey Sauce.It’s seriously delicious. I’ve never blogged it because it doesn’t feature CSA fare, and is totally unchanged from the original recipe. I’m sure I could throw in some sweet potatoes, or leeks, or something from our CSA … Continue reading

Fish Tacos with Avocado and Grapefruit Salsa

It’s citrus season around these parts.  That means that the only fruit we receive – oranges and grapefruits – is making its annual appearance in the box.  Normally I just slice the grapefruit and eat it for breakfast.  It’s the one time each year that the grapefruit spoons get to shine.  But as I was … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Risotto

This recipe is purely the result of trying to use up some items in the kitchen cabinet.  I had a bag of Arborio rice that I had long ago intended to turn into Greek rice pudding, but that never happened.  And the sweet potatoes from the CSA are piling up in a bowl on the … Continue reading

Curried Coconut Lentils

Hooray for Pinterest! I have found some fantastic food blogs via other pinners. This one comes from Pinch of Yum and includes a few changes based on what I had in the fridge that week from the CSA – but it is mostly intact. This is a delicious dish – use the full amount of Tom … Continue reading
