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…

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…

Imperfect Action + RECIPE: Roasted Beet Salad

Last Saturday there was a snowstorm in Wisconsin– a short-lived but altogether unexpected spring “blizzard” where temperatures dropped as low as 26 degrees and four inches of very heavy snow fell on our farm.
