Frittata Margherita

I love summer vegetables.  I love basil and tomatoes and dinners that take only 15 minutes from walking in the door to sitting at the table.  The frittata is the perfect vehicle for a fast dinner.  It’s easy, flexible, and you usually have all you need in the larder to complete the meal. Frittata Margherita … Continue reading

Caprese Salad

Sometimes you just don’t need to mess with the classics.  Basil season, tomato season, Caprese.  Fresh mozzarella layered with fresh tomatoes that have never seen the inside of a refrigerator*, sprinkle on basil leaves and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Pile on some proscuitto if you’ve got it, and you have the recipe … 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

Pickled Beets and Radishes

I’ll be the first to admit that pickled beets are pretty much day 1, item 1 in the beet agenda.  But good gracious, they are good.  And easy!  And they just get tastier and tastier by the day.  I’ve got round 2 of these baking in the oven as I type.  This time it’s going … Continue reading

Grilled Cabbage

Some friends of ours make grilled cabbage at a bbq we hosted last year and I was amazed at how delicious it was. I have a confession to make. My CSA cabbage often goes unused. I only have a couple recipes up my sleeve that use it. I used to put it in stir-fries, but … Continue reading
