Roasted Tomato Sauce

This summer I developed a bit of a tomato problem.  The organic tomatoes at the farmer’s market were so irresistible, I was buying pounds each week and eating them every day.  Which would have been fine if I didn’t also buy a 25 pound box of tomatoes being sold for an amazing price…and then another…andRead More

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Last weekend we invited friends over for our first barbecue of the season.  Except I was really in the mood for pulled pork, and ended up planning a whole menu that did not involve turning on the grill – oops!  But we did still enjoy our meal outside, and the nice thing about this pulledRead More

Shhh…it’s a secret…

Shhh…it’s a secret…

Can you keep a secret?  I have a confession to make… I don’t like farmer’s markets. There, I said it.  Oh, you couldn’t hear me?  Ok, this is a little hard to admit, but I’ll try again… I don’t like farmer’s markets 🙁 Heresy, I know…I care a lot about real food and the environment,Read More
