Pickled Radishes

Pickled Radishes

Pickles are the universal food gift, seriously. The homemade kind take only minutes to make and add such punch to every sort of meal, from breakfast to break-time snacks. Angela shows us the easiest sort: pickled radishes with whole black peppercorns. In ten minutes or less, you’ll have the kind of #foodgiftlove that makes dinner shine

Spring Pickled Ramps

Spring Pickled Ramps

Everyone is talking about ramps and, gosh, we love them too. If you don’t know what they are, why people love them or what anyone would ever do with them, Matthew has you covered. Just pickle them, but not before you read his words of wisdom, okay? Spring is here and you need to know

What We’re Loving: Spring Peas

by Amy Feiereisel
Fresh Green Peas

As the world unfurls from a harsh winter, as shoots force themselves out into the Spring sun, there is nothing harder than waiting for the markets to reflect the new life all around us. We are so close. So close to full markets and gardens, to leafy, colorful produce spilling out of grocery bags. Often I find myself

Meyer Lemon Mini Cannoli Cups

We may be a Boston-based operation, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate (read: adore) the West Coast. Mary just gave us yet another reason to dream of a warmer, more citrus-y state (of mind)… -Amy I’m a New England girl. Born and raised, and committed to living here in sort of a heels-dug-in way

The New Jersey Escape

New Jersey isn’t quite up there with Rome, Tokyo, or Paris when it comes to hot travel destinations, and many initial reactions to the state include mutterings about a certain television show and a generous dose of skepticism. Before I was enlightened, I’m sorry to say, I wrinkled my nose with the rest of them.

What We’re Loving: Fresh Herbs

Herbs are a truly transformative ingredient, especially in abundance. Bought from the grocery store, however, they come in small packages at high prices, and I never use them as freely as I’d like. One must be judicious with fish sauce, cinnamon, and hot peppers; never herbs. Luckily, herbs are easy to grow yourself and there

Fluffy White Cake

I’m used to unusual and beautiful eats, but Denise’s almost otherworldly confection, inspired by Miche Bacher’s new cookbook Cooking with Flowers, swept even me away. I can imagine bringing this out at the tail end of a cozy dinner party in the garden…that’s not me tearing up from the beauty of it all, I promise.

Cocktail Herb Tub

Three weeks into summer and three trips have come and gone. New York, Berlin and Amsterdam were warm and dense and laden with tourists. I kind of loved it. Everyone seemed so happy to be on holiday and while I was working, I couldn’t help but become totally infected by the happy-go-lucky perfume in the

What We’re Loving: Summer Salads

It’s here! They’re here! Though we love the market year round, the winter and spring can be…sparse. Parsnips and potatoes rule, even as the world wakes up and a misty green creeps over winter-browned edges. July, on the other hand, screams abundance and freshness. Mountains of cucumbers and zucchini protect bursting bundles of leafy greens.

Veggie Tacos

My garden is now a distant memory; we picked the last of the green tomatoes a week back. If you happen to live in luckier weather, then hurry up and make these Veggie Tacos immediately. The base ingredient is… wait for it… fried green tomatoes. Sign us up, and welcome new contributor Matthew in the

Preserved Eggplant

Amy and I both prioritize our gardens and use those gardens to feed our families, though her garden is far more diverse and tidy than mine. (For example, my tomatillo plants are on the ground, flat and smashed.) Still, we have both grown and preserved eggplant, and her recipe is perfect. It takes a little

Blackberry Peach Pie

I promised fruity crisp-like concoctions and Jill does not disappoint. Before the chills begins to stick and sweaters feel far more familiar than flip flops, gather up some peaches and blackberries and make this beautiful Blackberry Peach pastry – it’s not quite a pie, not quite a galette – but original and quite special for

Shrimp Toast

We’re quickly approaching a favorite time of year:   farmers market season.  But more and more, eating local means grabbing vegetables and herbs sprouting just outside our own kitchen windows.   Jill shares with us her adventure raising prawns, which makes me wonder, what are other people growing in their backyards and is it enough

Growing Garlic and a Baba Ghanoush Recipe

Just when the rest of my garden is looking fallen and dilapidated, it’s time to plant garlic for next year. Jill and I chatted about her garden last week and she offered to share an easy appetizer recipe that uses the garlic harvest and her garden eggplant. I’ve been roasting these two vegetables together constantly,

Goodbye Summer: An Open Letter to the Season

Dear Summer: Hello, my darling! I suppose we’re parting ways in just a week or so, and I feel I owe you a thank you. You were so easy on me this year and despite some of my regrets, you truly made life a breeze. Gardening I spent several weekends out of town soaking up
