Asparagus, one of my favorite vegetables ever, has come into season again. Along with lovely things like daffodils. spring rains, and blustery days. I like transition, even when it can make you uncomfortable for a bit, whether it be a new baby, a cold and unexpected rain shower, a change in jobs, fresh veggies [...]

You’ve maybe noticed that there’s been a decided lack of posts for the last while. Things really trickled over the last few months and then more recently went from a trickle to completely absent. That would be because about three weeks ago, we had the joy, the pleasure, and the privilege to welcome a new [...]
Our family loves lasagna. Is that a no brainer? When one of us (usually Granola or I) say, “I really want some lasagna, it’s been awhile,” it isn’t typically too long until we’ve obtained the ingredients and are ready to dine on a generous helping of tasty lasagna.

We’ve been really busy around here; I’ve been working a lot, Granola also works about 50 hours weekly, there’s school and toddlers throwing tantrums…a lot.

We’ve been anticipating and excited for months about getting our weekly installments of fresh, locally grown vegetables to play around with in the kitchen. We decided to split the box with Granola’s mom, and with the amount of veggies we all consume, we’re now [...]
You’ve now heard my rant about breakfast, and seen the posts on bagels, biscuits, and other breakfasty deliciousness. Tofu scramble, a discovery during the vegan days, (tip cap to Isa) saved me from pining away for eggs and their various breakfast incarnations.
We first discovered this tofu ‘eggless’ salad back in our vegan days, and were amazed & delighted at the absolutely spot-on flavor of a ‘real’ egg salad.
A while back our co-op had a delicious salad featuring French lentils, and I’ve been toying with different versions of lentil salads since then. This is the latest, and a definite winner. The dressing was very light, so feel free to play around with it, add more, less, or skip doing your own dressing and [...]
