Fish & Farro on a cold winter day

As I sit today and stare out the window across my snow and ice covered yard, my body emits a little shiver and I’m gently reminded of how grateful I am to be inside. I hold my cup of tea closer, wrapping my chilly fingertips around its heat and take a deep, slow breath of Earl Grey…

Green Soup #1 for the Genuine Green Girl

How many times can one use G in a title?  If you’re me, never enough.  During the cold New England winter months, it’s easy for one’s body to get overwhelmed.  Lump the cold on top of a busy work and personal life schedule and you have a perfect (not so perfect) recipe for disaster. When…

Said one fish to another

While every fish may have had big dreams, I’m sure none of them involved turning into a fish cake. (Let’s face it that would be pretty self sacrificing, and bizarre.) But what does one do when haddock is on sale and you have plenty of leftovers from fish taco night? Make delightful fish cakes of…

Green and Red-Back on Track?

As you know I’ve been feeling very under the weather for the past week or so.  My body decided that it didn’t care what I wanted, it wanted what it desired.  By this week’s aches and pains I’m still not entirely sure what that was, but I’ve decided to give it some peace and not…

Tuesday Treats-and a comforting soup

So after reading this lady’s AMAZING blog most of Tuesday I decided that I HAD (yes HAD) to go to the grocery store to grab some dark chocolate.  Interesting how viewing post after post of dark  chocolate will do that to you. While our grocery store may not be the “best” place to find organic…

My Squashy Obession

When the first leaves of fall begin their slow decent you can find me at a farm stand or local grocery store wistfully eyeing my favorite produce of the autumn season, squash.   Truth be told, I have an obsession; I become that crazed mad scientist when I get my hands on one, or two or…

My BFF Juicer Met Beecartox-Love at first speed

Juice, juice oh how I love to juice. And I mean REAL juice, not that concentrated syrupy mess they disguise as juice in the grocery store. Dismiss its brightly colored cheerful cardboard box, and turn that bad boy over. Just on a rough scan of the ingredients most items will say, made from concentrate and…

Noteworthy, recipe saving chicken stew…chickens beware

Let the praises begin and the congratulations come forth. I did it. I managed to create the most delicious, savory, heartwarming chicken stew. My eyes closed and my body sighed in satisfaction upon the first spoonful. How could something so easy become so wonderfully divine? Cal stated in satisfaction as he finished his bowl that…

Winner winner chicken stew dinner?

Now, who doesn’t like chicken out there….(vegetarians don’t answer that question, I will have plenty of veggie only dishes up at some point). There are a lot of people out there walking around with a huge misconception that chicken is boring. (Cue TV commercial: “Aww man, chicken….again?”)  What they don’t realize is chicken is a very versatile…
