    Do you love rich, creamy pasta alfredo like us, but don't want the extra calories from the fat? Then give this a try! Unlike other recipes that utilize cottage cheese, this sauce will not break and it tastes wonderful!

    Recipe #318517

    Cyndy, the wife of our consumer supported agriculture (CSA) farmer Bob, inspired this innovative use of the abundance of summer squash. Easy to prepare, doesn't heat the kitchen up, and it's delicious. Use a sharp vegetable peeler to make thin squash ribbons, about a half-inch wide. Peel, then rotate the squash so strips are about the same width. Stop when you hit the rough seeds. The hot fettuccine and sauteed grape tomatoes will heat and slightly soften the squash.

    Recipe #318395

    Here's a tasty main course soup that will use that abundance of zucchini, bell and banana peppers from your garden. Serve with some crusty bread and a nice Riesling for a perfect, light Summer dinner!

    Recipe #318044

    A college friend of mine was from the Schwabisch area of what was formerly West Germany. He made a German potato salad that was unlike the type we usually think of, which has a hot vinaigrette made from bacon grease, vinegar and sugar. I absolutely loved his potato salad and want to share it with you. It's served at room temperature, and is best if it has a chance to sit and marinade for 30 minutes or so. The warm potatoes then have a chance to soak up the vinaigrette. Try this in place of your usual mayonnaise-based American potato salad with your next grilled burger!

    Recipe #316990

    I love beets, whether harvard, pickled, or straight up; however, my partner thinks they taste like dirt ;-) We got some beets with our weekly farm shipment and I decided to show him he could like beets with a very simple preparation method my Grandma used. If you like gentle earthiness of beets, then you'll like this recipe. It allows the beets themselves to shine through.

    Recipe #316686

    I love broccoli, but it's sometimes difficult to find methods of preparing it that are both flavorful and healthy. It's tempting to cover it with a cheesy sauce, but there goes healthy! So, last night after microwaving my Birdseye broccoli-cauliflower, I added it to a skillet of warm olive oil in which the juice of one lemon along with anchovy and garlic paste had been added. The result was delicious! If you've ever had bagna cauda, this is quite similar.

    Recipe #315137

    My grandma always had these on hand when we were kids growing up. I just loved the cool, crisp and tangy treat in the Summer and hope you will too. I just made a batch last night and thought I'd share the recipe with you. This simple, raw side dish is unlike other cucumber salad recipes that use sour cream. Note that although this take only 5 minutes to prepare and there is no cooking, it needs to sit for an hour in the fridge for the flavors to blend and mellow.

    Recipe #314939

    So quick and so easy, yet so full of flavor. Better than any stuff you'll get out of a jar and without all those preservatives. Pasta sauce does not have to cook for hours to be delicious. This one is done in as little as 30 minutes! I tweak my spices from time-to-time, and you should too. This is the only sauce we use in our household and it's a good all purpose sauce for many uses.

    Recipe #314490

    The resulting marsala wine reduction that gets poured over the chicken breasts is simply mouthwatering! Very few ingredients and so simple to make, you won't believe how delicious this is. Give it a try. My partner and I enjoyed this with a side of Recipe #292081 and brown rice.

    Recipe #314295

    This week we received some tart gooseberries and sour pie cherries with our weekly CSA allotment. There weren't enough of either to do much with so I decided to combine them and make them into a nice crisp. This crisp has both a bottom and top crisp, which helps with the tartness of these berries. You'll need 4 cups of fruit, so feel free to combine whatever you happen to have on hand.

    Recipe #312235

    A healthier take on that down home comfort food staple, Salisbury steak, these burgers have lots of taste. The accompanying gravy is wonderful served over mashed potatoes or rice as well as the burgers themselves. This is a favorite of ours.

    Recipe #312220

    We received a pound of sweet Walla Walla onions with this week's shipment of farm produce from our CSA and I wanted a quick and easy way to use them. I had zwiebelkuchen (German onion pie) in mind, and while the recipes on 'Zaar looked delicious, they also looked time consuming. So I took what I thought were the best ideas and used a pre-made crust. My partner and I thought the result was delicious and hope you do too!

    Recipe #312078

    I set out last night to make this marvelous sounding Recipe #224192, but added so many different things that I didn't feel it would be fair to rate it. I wanted more of a hearty stew, but the inspiration was definitely found in that recipe. This is a hale and hearty main dish soup that contains a healthy dose of Omega-3 oils.

    Recipe #310208

    A delicious and easy way to preserve all that rhubarb. With this method, you don't have worry about what type of pectin to purchase, will it set up, did you use enough sugar. In fact, I like this fine with only 3 cups of sugar rather than the four.

    Recipe #308504

    Calling all rhubarb lovers and those with an overabundance of this tart gem. This is a new twist on using rhubarb in that it isn't a dessert or a salad, but part of a main course. This recipe hails from the Jewish community of Rhodes and appears on the Seder table in both Greece and Turkey (in Greece, one part rhubarb to two parts tomato; in Turkey, the proportions are reversed). If you don't care for the tartness of rhubarb, this recipe isn't for you. I'd also recommend trying this sauce on chicken and pork as well as fish. Enjoy!

    Recipe #307614

    Another use for that abundance of strawberries. Balsamic vinegar, strawberries and black pepper are a classic Italian trio: spicy and sweet, refined and earthy. Together - and bound with aromatic almond oil - they make a terrific dressing for this salad of chicken and vegetables.

    Recipe #307612

    Calling all you Springtime asparagus and spinach lovers, this one's for you! Not much more to say!

    Recipe #303779

    Like tuna? Like Italian style food? Like healthy Omega-3 oil? Like easy-to-make, quick recipes? Hmmm, then this might just be the dish for you!

    Recipe #303417

    This mushroom sandwich comes topped with a luscious Greek-style salad. Make it a meal: Serve with cucumber spears and a glass of Firestone Gewürztraminer.

    Recipe #301602

    Salmon is one of the healthy fish that contain high amounts of Omega-3 fatty acid and partner and I try to eat it once a week, so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. Fish tacos are very popular in Southern California and the Baja of Mexico; and, who doesn't like Mexican cuisine. All of the recipes I've seen use various white fish, call for battering and frying the fish, and contain numerous steps. I played around last night and came up with a combination that my dear partner and I loved. I hope you will too! This is fast and easy to prepare, and won't heat your kitchen up during the Spring and Summer months.
