Dark Days Challenge: Breakfast

The final week of the Dark Days Challenge is focused on breakfast. We’ve done a bunch of breakfast posts, so we were a bit stumped. I wanted to do another baked good, but didn’t want to split two dozen muffins or a whole coffee cake with Erik over the next two days. Yogurt and granola parfait with strawberries? I just couldn’t decide. So then I forgot all about it… ….until this morning. I was . . . → Read More: Dark Days Challenge: Breakfast

How to Make Dark Days Cabbage and Potato “Lasagna”

We will admit, this recipe is a bit of a chore (even for us, and we’re usually the “no, it’s easy!” people). However, it is a great way to use up all the random cabbage and potatoes that you may have gotten as part of a winter CSA. ¬†At the very least it is filling, reheats well, and makes a lot (leftovers!).

Although it is vegetarian, it is very rich, since it consists largely . . . → Read More: How to Make Dark Days Cabbage and Potato “Lasagna”
