The funny thing is that I had never thought of roasting my own until my friend at The Chocolate Lotus asked me how. Now I […]

I was wandering the produce section of a local supermarket . . . I do that a lot . . . and came across these interesting greens right next to the sugar snap peas. “Fiddlehead greens,” the package proclaimed. They weren’t too expensive ($2.50 or so, for the package) so I decided to pick them […]

Well, I’ve gone and done it. After all the talk I’ve heard through the food blogging universe about broccolini, I had to try it myself. And as it turns out I love it, and my husband – the self proclaimed vegetable hater – doesn’t mind it, which is high praise for him. It was sweeter […]
