Spring always inspires me to get cooking. I love making light, fresh foods that we don't get to enjoy during the winter months, and if they are pretty then it's a bonus.
In the last decade, beer has received a face lift and is more popular than ever. Craft breweries have completely revitalized the industry and beer snobs are eagerly waiting the next limited release. American beer has come much further than Coors and Bud Light.
A beautiful springtime meal, there is something just perfect about the combination of spring asparagus spears that are wrapped in ham and topped with a silky Hollandaise. It's a killer meal that can be a main dish or hearty breakfast. We like this when doing spring cleanup on the farm.
A creamy home cooked dish in less than 15 minutes, Spaghetti Carbanara is one of the most delightful meals you can whip up in the kitchen. It's so simple that you can make it after a long day.
Do you often find yourself scrambling to get dinner on the table?
Ramp season is in full bloom which means that this allium is making its way onto restaurant menus. If you are reading this article and don't know what the heck I am even writing about, then consider this a quick and dirty lesson in ramps.
Crustless asparagus and ramp quiche is an elegant spring dish that can be served at almost any event. Ramps are one of spring's delicacies because they have such a short season. These wild leeks have a mild onion flavor with a hint of garlic.
Ph? or simply pho (pronounced fuh) is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of rice noodles, meat or sometimes just vegetables, fresh herbs, and broth. The cornerstone of a good pho lies in the quality of the broth, so take your time and let the flavors simmer and meld.
Spring meals take on a lightness that we haven't seen in months. Everything just tastes better with a breathe of warm, fresh air. We love to change up our cooking the moment that the warmer day arrive.
Whole roasted pesto salmon is hands down my favorite spring recipe. This easy meal requires very little preparation and can be on the table in just 30 minutes. This salmon recipe is as delicious as it is beautiful.
Today's blog is all about fun for the big kids. While looking for something interesting to write about, I came across a list of incredibly tasty drinks-all with a boozy kick that makes them just for the grownups, but also have a decadent flavor.
A true sign of spring in the garden is the peeking of little green tips as the asparagus bed starts to come to life. It's earlier than the weed crop we fight throughout the season, so even the youngest chefs in the family can harvest the pencil thin spears as they come up.
This easy Korean-seasoned stir-fry recipe features tender flank steak marinated in a sesame ginger lemongrass sauce then cooked with a colorful melange of sweet mini peppers, fresh avocado and parsley. This one-pan dish takes just minutes to make and is so delicious!
Ah, nostalgia. It means that one bite of a childhood favorite can bring you right back to a simple time when all you wanted was a spoonful of peanut butter when mom wasn't looking. Or is that just me?
It’s avocado season! From now through September we’ll be gobbling up our favorite rich and creamy fruit (yup, it’s actually a fruit)! Here’s an idea for tonight’s dinner from one of our favorite Seattle chefs, Erik Tanaka.
We love this good-for-you breakfast served hot as a porridge or as a tasty chilled pudding.
As I was perusing the Easter candy sale aisle today, the rows of peeps without a home compelled me to buy a few extra boxes. This year, I bought sour peeps for all my little chefs, and they ate them up first!
