Avocado Salsa Verde

If I could, I would do all my shopping solely at farmers markets. I love getting my goods from the farmers themselves, or a local craftsman who specializes in something unique. I frequent both our local markets, and Sloan Bergien’s stand south of town for the best produce selection. But I also seek out farmers […]

Bring Back the Bistro Turkey Burger, and Other Great Dishes

I’m not exactly sure just how many turkey burgers I ate at Rendezvous Bistro before they pulled it off the menu. When I first moved here 11 years ago, it was about the only thing I could afford when, as a poorly paid reporter for a local publication, I went out to eat. So if […]

Asian Cucumber Salad

  People who say there is no difference in taste between organic and non-organic food clearly have never tasted an organic cucumber. My favorite summer vegetable is peaking currently, and I have made this dish just about every other day. Cucumber is packed with water content, thus helping you hit your daily hydration goals. This […]

The Best Spots For Charcuterie and Cheese

Sometimes, I just can’t decide what I want to eat, especially at a restaurant. I’m kind of hungry, but don’t want a huge entree that will make me regret it halfway through (I can’t leave food on my plate, so then I’m just left beyond full). And I am all about the appetizers; I’d rather order […]

Lessons from Cooking

Writing about food is on par with trying to describe a dream you had last night. There is no way that you can properly convey what that experience means to you. You can only come up with a laundry list of adjectives and hope that you communicate a portion of that experience to the reader. It […]

What’s For Dinner?

Our hands are our best tools in the kitchen, and let’s be honest, it’s just more fun getting our hands dirty (as long as you have a sturdy napkin). This recipe is easy to make and fun to eat. It’s a good candidate for lunch and dinner, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s healthy, either. […]

With the recent cool breeze in the air, and the changing of leaves, I guess fall is really here. But we’re not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet, because saying goodbye to summer means no more heirloom tomatoes, no more peaches, and no more summer drinks on porches. Acknowledging the fact that we […]
