Buttered Radish Toast

Since we last talked I have learned that sharing a salad and having a difficult conversation is indeed a beautiful start to upending the injustices that surround us, but that it is also no where near enough at a time like this. Like many around me, I have spent much of the last seven days…

Perfect Roasted Potatoes

Our farming season begins next week! Our CSA is 55% full! We’re hiring! It’s one week until March, four weeks until spring. We have a bazillion pieces of infrastructure to research, buy and build. I just got home from nearly three weeks in Europe. Lordy lordy do we ever have a lot to catch up…

Jalapeno Chive Biscuits

I discovered the simple wonder of a flaky, homemade buttermilk biscuit a few years ago thanks to Smitten Kitchen. Back then we were making biscuits to slather with butter, jam, honey and/or gravy nearly every weekend. It felt like biscuits had taken over my Instagram and I was sharing a biscuit recipe every couple months,…

RECIPE: Savory Porridge Breakfast Bowl

Now after all that talk about batch cooking and non-fussy recipes (which I genuinely meant and is absolutely my philosophy 95% of the time), here I am coming at you with a totally fussy recipe. Apologies for the lack of consistency. I just like this meal way too much not to share it. I blame…

Batch Cooking + RECIPE: Apple & Pear Baked Maple Oatmeal

I am all about the batch cooking and simple eating these days. I feel like I’ve done a total 180 from the start of my cooking career when I considered a great night one where I spent three hours in my kitchen making pretzels from scratch or some other all-consuming process. It’s not that I…

Mother’s Day Brunch + RECIPE: Rhubarb Crisp Pancakes

Mother’s Day is really just a very poorly timed holiday. While the rest of the world is picnic-ing and brunching and planting flowers and sipping wine from their back patios drenched in sunshine with their mothers, I’m shouting at mine because can’t she just stop talking and understand her home is my place of employment?! …

Normal Life + RECIPE: Mashed Potato Fritter Benedict

Hi. Hello. How are you? It’s been so long since we’ve talked. You know talked about regular life things and not just my greenhouse, my travels, or my insanely loving endorsement of local products. Lately my life has been pretty normal. I’ve been reading a really good book and raving about it non-stop on social media. I…

Where I’m At + RECIPE: Bacon & Pecan Belgian Waffle

It’s been one hell of a week my friends. One hell of an emotional, exhausting kind of a week. Arriving home in Wisconsin after a picture perfect vacation (much more on this later!) to forty-degree weather and what can only appear to be a spring thaw in mid-January, diving 100 miles per hour into work with a board…
