Mmmmmm Hummus

Mmmmmm Hummus

I love hummus. It's easy to eat, simple to make, and extremely nutritious atop its tasty and flexible qualities. Since we are a part of the CSA we get ours once a month from Wheat State Foods where the label can attest to its cleanliness and quality—two more reasons to love what Paula puts together for everyone! Maybe you are curious though: What is it?

Steak Basics

Steak Basics

I don't talk much about the meat from the box, but the time has come. I. Am. In. Love. Addicted. Hopeless. The quality of this meat is so good I had forgotten the taste of ordinary store-bought ground beef and especially steak. My husband prepares a mean steak, but steaks are all about the quality of the beef and it is hard to fake.

What to do when you have vegetables you don't know what to do with.

We don't buy eggplant in our home. With the CSA, though, we often end up with items that we would not have bought otherwise.

I don't care for the texture and eggplant's flavor is a negative as well, so over the years I have found a few tricks for making it more palatable. This is one of my favorites.

Summer Snacks

Summer Snacks

From watermelon to tomatoes and cucumbers, the box has been chock full of easy snacks to slice and serve over this Summer. They clean and pop onto plate, table, or ready hands so fast it's easy to go through the season having to plan meals more deliberately since so much of the produce is so quick to disappear.
