I have a big confession to make: I’ve been eating daikon radishes for more than 10 years but only recently learned what this delicious, crunchy veggie was called. In fact, I only learned daikon’s name by process of elimination, followed by research, after a friend asked me what it was at a restaurant … In […]

It’s really hard to believe that I went for so many years without ever tasting a single sweet potato. My mother didn’t like them, and by extension neither did I. As far as I can remember, I think I had my first one at about age 19 in the fry form (cause seriously, anything in […]

This acorn squash is sweet and rich. Best of all, it’s super easy. My son eats as much as he can get out of the shell — so that’s a testament to how kid-friendly this is. Serve it in the squash shell, and it looks pretty impressive too. Today is a special day. It’s Sarah’s […]

Remember recently when I told you about the fabulous Eggplant Parmesan that I made using Maris’ awesome (and healthier!) recipe. It was so good that I bought more eggplant at the farmers market.

Oh, dear roasted tomatoes, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways … I could wax poetic about these slow roasted plum tomatoes for hours on end. They are sweet and tender, soft and perfect. And, yes, I ate the whole batch myself. In a day. They were just that good. Tomatoes are […]

It’s hard to believe that summer vacation is past tense and summer, the season, is soon coming to a close. I had really high hopes for this summer.

It was a rare occasion the other day: I headed off to the local organic farmers market without any children in tow. That meant I could meander around and take things slow while I shopped for vegetables for dinner, something for lunch and a few things to add to an extra special gift basket I […]

If you fall into the latter category, my condolences and I urge you to give fresh, wonderful beets a try. Seriously. Now for those […]
