Shishito & Potato Breakfast Bake

Life on the farm has slowed way, way down. Typically we meet some sort of gradual slow down in September, but this year feels more like a very sudden stop. The late summer/early fall crops met a very abrupt end and the peak fall greens, roots and brassicas are arriving a bit later with such…

Roasted Potato & Kale Salad

Wowee! It is cold outside. Here in the Midwest, we went from high summer (temps in the high 80s and overwhelming tomato abundance) to deep fall (like the “should we turn the heat on” kind of fall day) in the blink of an eye. And honestly, all of Wisconsin is not really sure how to…

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…
