Zucchini Recipes: Round 1

Zucchini Recipes: Round 1

There once was a barren land with nothing growing but grass and wild thyme around our house. Soon, we started mapping out a plan to put in a vegetable garden. Great idea! I thought we would have a quaint little garden. We have been caring for this (not-so-quaint) garden all summer and things are flourishing. Especially zucchini and cucumbers. Whoa. Next year, we are planting far less of these abundant crops! So, what can you do with all that zucchini?

Raised Donuts

Raised Donuts

The great fried donut project. I have been wanting to do this for years. Sometime over the weekend while searching for a(other) zucchini recipe, I came across a zucchini cake donut. I was ready to tackle frying at home. I was going to be brave. So I read and researched a bit more on the great subject of donuts. Cake, raised, fried, baked, filled, glazed, sugared, or plain? I knew the answer to which one I would make. Spoiler alert: not the zucchini cake donut (yet, anyhow).  I have been on the quest to find a good honey dipped (or honey glazed) donut for years. The answer was tucked away on page 97 of my grandmother (and her two sisters’) cookbook. I tied my red striped apron on and got to work.

Here & There: One Rotation

Here & There: One Rotation

Many months have passed since my last Here & There post. So much has changed around here! To try and convey all of the many steps that we have been attempting to uncover, learn and discover over the past year would be silly. I am not a great dancer. I gave up on my ballerina dreams early on in life. Instead of leading you down the complicated path…I might just show you a few pictures. Are you ready?

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Why, hello! Sorry for the long pause in between blog posts. Life, it seems, has gotten the best of me and I have found myself in new spaces, connecting with old faces, and chasing around NQGBebe!
I made these little bites of chocolatey goodness awhile back and wanted to share them with you. Read on…

Spring Harvest: Ramp Pesto!

Spring Harvest: Ramp Pesto!

Spring Ramps

We were hiking through some beautiful, soaked fields (as is typical of New England springs) on a gorgeous warm and sunny evening. The sun was setting as our sextet, comprised of mothers and babies in carriers, trekked onward over small streams and through the dappled sunlight of the forest we came upon the beds of beautiful, vividly green ramps.

Simple Snack: Kale Chips

Simple Snack: Kale Chips

IMG_2585
Kale chips. Did you know just how easy they can be? I have always used the oven to bake them and the results were consistent and always delicious. Recently, I was crunching on some kale chips that my mother-in-law made. We were talking about how easy they were. I asked if she baked them in the oven? No, she said. What was her secret? I had to find out!
