Comfort for Colder Days [Farmers Market Bibimbap]

It’s almost that time, guys.  Our sweaters button a little tighter, zippers up a little higher as the once-lush, green landscape becomes caped in a dull shade of brown as we wait for the snow to fall. Winter is coming. But not without one last harvest.  We wanted the last summer Farmer’s Feast to be […]

Food Connections and Cake [Brown Butter Blue Plum Skillet Cake]

I tend to talk quite a bit about the connections we make through food. The people we meet while attending events, the conversations had over meals, the friends from around the world that feel like you’ve known forever when really, you’ve yet to meet.

Farmers Feast #2 [Cherry & Red Currant Curd Granola Parfaits]

 It’s that time again….  Farmers Feast #2 is here! And it comes bearing brilliant red berries and crispy smoked bacon. That sounds good, right? I thought so, too. When Tara dropped off the basket this week (I wasn’t able to make it to the market last Sunday because I was shoving my face full of […]
