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

Seven Citrus-licious Confections

I’m ready for winter to be over. After two polar vortexes and snowstorm after snowstorm after snowstorm, I can’t wait to retire my down coat and my snow boots for the year. I also have to confess that I’m a little tired of eating root vegetables. Much as I like eating seasonally and locally, I’m

What We’re Loving: Popcorn

What We’re Loving: Popcorn

When I was a kid, I used to love the nights when my dad would get out the popcorn maker. He would pop the kernels while my mom melted butter on the stove. The finished product went into a big green plastic bowl, which I kept next to me on the floor while we watched

Raspberry, blueberry, grape, and strawberry all make wonderful jams, but sometimes you’re in the mood for something unique; something a little savory yet somehow sweet; something that goes just a little bit off the normal jam script. Trust us, this something is Blue Chair Early Girl Tomato Jam. Brought to you by the preserving mastermind,

What We’re Loving: Holiday Cookies

Is there anything more memory invoking than the sweet, soothing smell of cookies baking during the holidays? The rich scent of molasses takes me back to snow days spent shoulder to shoulder in my family’s kitchen, pressing flour-dredged cookie cutters into freshly rolled dough. While the glisten of icing reminds me of finger tips made

Eat Boutique Fall Market – Meet the Makers

When did the summer just happen?! One moment it was spring and the next moment, I’m  baking stone fruit pies, preserving everything in sight,  and piling just-harvested veggies high into my cocktail glass. Cucumber Melon Mojito, anyone? Seriously, I’m ready for all the goodness of fall and I plan to celebrate the first official day

I’ve got to be honest, I’m not too sad about the summer coming to a close. I’m going to miss a few seasonal perks, like the warm shade of my billowy backyard umbrella, the relief brought on after a long sip of cold-brewed iced coffee, and the charred side of an ear of corn that

Blueberry and Nectarine Crisp

Shelby has an amazing talent for combining fruit, a bit of sugar, flour and spices into a dish I want to eat for breakfast, lunch or dessert. Remember this Blueberry Bread Pudding? This Crisp is no different and uses my favorite fruit – ripe nectarines. Blueberries aren’t bad either. And when you add oats, oh,

My dearest friend and contributing photographer to this site, Lise Pellegrin, is on a year-long work-play holiday traveling the world. She spent much of this year living and working across Australia, and has spent the last few months traveling around Asia. For the last few weeks, she’s been headquartered in Kathmandu, Nepal and just shared

After a little time away, I’m resurrecting FridgeFridays, but over on the actual FridgeFridays.com blog! Read more below or head on over there… I really think it’s critical (and enlightening) to examine the food we keep in our fridge. And, in a wonderful turn of events, you think so too! When I was taking photos

FridgeFridays: What Food Item Embarrasses You?

FridgeFridays started as a way to share what you eat, what you cook, what you love. And while we all typically pack our fridge with food we love or can afford, sometimes we buy (or keep) a few random things around to satiate a guilty pleasure (chocolate-yum!) or keep us strong and healthy (liquid vitamins-bleah!).

FridgeFridays: What’s in Your Fridge?

I am totally fascinated by what people have in their fridges. It’s like peeping into a secret world, drawing back the red curtain, looking under a bed or opening a bathroom medicine chest. When you peek inside a fridge, you can tell a lot about a person and their lifestyle in an instant. For example,
