Spring is here and summer is coming ... and I'm the first one runn'n.
Ok... old country song lyrics! Regarless, Pesto season is here! Be it kale, dandelion or basil pesto there is likely to be some green in your garden to make this tasty treat with!
There will be no need for that Starbucks Pesto Panini once you make this fresh at home. The flavor will be so much better along with the healthy ingredients. Not to mention it makes the perfect tea time treat.
So let's get to the grub!
Happy Fall Ya'll!
Did you just discover the largest zucchini you have ever seen hiding in your garden?
You thought that you were done with that never ending summer squash. You were ready for the first frost and the leaves to change color. Bring on the winter rest!
OR MAYBE you love zucchini like I do and you just wish there was more fabulous ways to cook it up.
This recipe is for you... who found the prize winning squash and for you who love all things zucchini.
OH AND ALSO FOR YOU... who are gluten and dairy free like us!
It's near the end of summer, which means that the days are getting shorter and fall is coming quicker than quick. It also means that there are piles and piles of zucchini, or what I've decided to refer to as courgettes. (Their fancy French name)
Don't you think it sounds better?
"Hey neighbor! Would you like some of my fancy home grown French courgettes?"
They will at least stop and pause instead of shouting no and throwing them back at you, don't you think?
Many a zucchini grower knows what I'm talking about. That zucchini abundance, and what to do with it all? No worries, from one courgette grower to another, some help is on the way.
'Tis the season for all things basil, no?
Nothing quite says summer to me as pesto sauce! Well... ok maybe except for iced tea, but what kind of a tea sommelier would I be, if I didn't included tea on the list?
While pesto is basically great smeared on anything, aside from maybe chocolate... hmm. I'm always looking for great ways to use it. Today I'm sharing two yummy recipes that we love. Roasted Garlic Basil Crustini and Turkey Pesto Tea Sandwiches.
"The best of times are always found,
When family & friends are gathered around."
This is truly my favorite time of year because the heat of the summer is tamed, the farm work outside is mostly done and it's now time to spend hours inside with friends and family. By enjoying the harvest from the summer's hard work and keeping warm by the fireside. Be it a fall family gathering and Christmas meals or anything in-between, this is a time for family, food and giving thanks to our Creator for the seasons abundance!
Sometimes though it's easy to get stumped on what to make with that abundance. That is why we gathered 14 recipes from farm/homestead blogs to liven up your holiday meals. It's time to gather, celebrate and enjoy food that is as good as the company we are with! Farmhouse style.
Did you know that you can cook with tea and not just drink it? One of our Super Fan's and V.I.P. Members, Kris Miller, sent us this lovely recipe using Golden Turmeric Spice Tea in a curry dish. What makes it super fantastic is that not only is it yummy, not only does it have anti-oxidant packed turmeric in it BUT Kris is also a culinary student at a local college! Training as a professional chef she used her culinary skills to cook up something fantastic! It even made it on the college menu :)
