Summer Salmon Cobb Salad

A couple weeks ago we gave the most beautiful heads of summer romaine to our CSA members and I was just giddy about it. The addition of romaine into our August CSA boxes made me feel like a whole new world of recipes had opened up– BLTs, lettuce cups, wedge salads, cobb salads, all the…

Nacho Bowls with Easy Hot Pepper Queso

Lord, save us all. I learned how easy it is to make queso. And I’m about to teach you. And now we’re all going to have to try to resist eating nachos for dinner every single night of pepper season. Seriously, I apologize in advance. I just couldn’t keep the secret to myself. And in…

Kale with Mustard Roasted Carrots & Shittakes

For the past three weeks I feel like my diet has essentially consisted of five ingredients– tomatoes, cheese, sweet corn, melons and simple carbohydrates. Occasionally I throw in some butter, an egg, a cucumber, an apple, some hummus, but generally I just repeat the same five or six delicious flavors in slightly different ways. Tomato…

Tomato Pie with Brown Buttered Garlic & Shallots

Sweet sweet tomato pie. The most decadent summer treat. I can hardly believe I’ve made it through three weeks of tomato season without making this yet, but it felt right to devour cherry tomatoes raw by the handful and get my fill of tomato toast (for every meal of the day) first. But now, we’ve…

Sweet Corn Pizza Two Ways

Every year we make a few adjustments to our CSA plan to try and align it more and more with what we think the best mix of produce is for our CSA members. This year we decided that meant way more sweet corn than in years past. We planted two massive plantings (of 11 beds…

Greens Beans with Butter & Almonds

We’ve made it to August in Wisconsin: the simplest, most glorious, most delicious time to be a lover of local food. The bounty is apparent everywhere– in gardens, in CSA boxes, and at farmers’ markets. Friends share their tomato bounty and try to push their CSA zucchinis on each other. Incredible flavors abound without much…

Butter Balsamic Roast Carrots with Carrot Top Chimichurri

The best part of vegetable farming for me (outside of the abundant sunshine, happy customers, and super rewarding work) is definitely having unlimited access to all the vegetables I want, whenever I want, and not having to visit the grocery store for several weeks (or sometimes even a couple months) in the summer. I particularly…

Zucchini Breakfast Tacos with Sweet Corn Salsa

The first of our tomatoes are popping, we just harvested sweet corn for our CSA members, and the melons are ripening so fast we need to test them biweekly. Peak summer produce is on the horizon and we’re beginning to eat vegetables (or at the very least tomatoes!!) every meal of the day. It seems…

First Tomato Panzanella with Burrata

This funny thing is happening with my blog. I keep finding myself overloaded with recipes and underloaded (?) with words. By that I mean, ingredients are pouring out of my fields, inspiration is free flowing, and I have so many tasty things I’m cooking up that I want to share. I want to get them…

Creamy Cucumbers

What a difference a week, a little rain, a ten-degree cool down, and some intentional changes can make. My Carrot and I are no longer so grumpy, and boy am I ever grateful for that. We’ve been cooking most nights, trying to work shorter days, watching The Floor is Lava and Holey Moley to unwind…
