Back In The Blogging Groove

July 10, 2012

Hi and happy summertime! I am back…back in the bloggin groove. These days little Ruthie has replaced my camera in the kitchen. I haven’t quite figured out how to keep my eye on a baby and stovetop while snapping photos!

Summer has always been my favorite season to cook, but this summer is special. We are part of a CSA (community supported agriculture) program from Rise and Shine Farms in Calhoun, Georgia. Every other week, Ruthie and I pick up a box of fresh local veggies and two dozen eggs. It has been fun to cook based on veggies from the CSA instead of scouring cookbooks and then grocery shopping. So, here are some highlights from the past few months. I hope they will inspire you to eat your veggies this summer. Recipes to follow!

Asian Noodle Salad- I’ve made two versions and can’t decide which is best.

Open-Faced Sandwiches- So many options, but special bread is key.

Tabouli- Healthy and satisfying on a hot summer day.

Toasted Pasta with Shrimp- A welcomed change from most pasta recipes. This dish has such interesting flavors.

Fig Bruschetta and Cutting Board Project- Excited to share both the recipe and wood-working project.

Squash, Leek and Goat Cheese Frittata- Inspired from my CSA basket.

Marinated Mediterranean Salad- Also inspired by CSA veggies. Crisp, clean and cool.

Flag Cake- I don’t just make vegetable dishes! This cake is to die for.

Oh and look at these veggies from my CSA. You can still sign up for a vegetable share here!

I want to thank everyone who has inquired about my absence and encouraged me to keep sharing on this blog. Please keep coming back!
