Brussels Sprouts & Bread Cheese with Date Dressing

I’ve got a little last minute Thanksgiving recipe treat for you all!! It’s a super lovely, super simple salad to adorn your holiday (or regular) table this fall. I can’t believe I don’t have a true holiday Brussels sprouts recipe on my blog yet. I have a couple great shredded Brussels sprout salads that totally…

Fall Grain Bowl with Millet & Mushrooms

Yesterday we officially said goodbye to the 2020 season by sending off 2500 pounds of produce off to our storage share members. There is pretty much nothing left in the fields to harvest or sell, and the majority of our fall clean up has been completed. Life has officially slowed enough that I can come…

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…

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…

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…

Spring Salad with Lemon Cream & Chives

277 CSA boxes. Last week, my husband and I (and our dyno farm team) packed 277 CSA boxes. Last week, five vans from an amazing local courier service pulled up to our pack shed to load their vehicles to the brim with goods from our farm and local area partners. They delivered 277 CSA shares…

Simple Spring Salad

Friday was my last official day employed by Midwest Environmental Advocates: a day I have already thoroughly shared all my emotions about and that I had seen coming for quite some time. And yet, the whole week was greeted with much more intense emotions than I ever expected. What no one can see coming when…

Collard Butternut Panzanella with Lentils & Seeds

Each year of farming, our recovery period seems to take a little bit longer than the last, and by that I mean that after each growing season it seems to be taking longer and longer to put ourselves back together again.  It’s not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing. Each year we…

Kale Salad with Shredded Turnip, Radish & Mustard Dressing

Hello and happy 2020 everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday and most festive start to the new year. We had a perfect blend of social chaos (for some reason we decided to host our first ever holiday party a day before our first of four Christmas-es began), obsessive reflection (I spent at least…

The Blur of October + RECIPE: Beet & Carrot Slaw with Currants

In the last 31 days, I have traveled to Door County, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and a little cabin off Lake Arbutus outside Black River Falls. My Carrot and I have celebrated our five year wedding anniversary, celebrated Halloween with friends and trimmed so much hemp. At the farm, we packed the last CSA…
