Gilfeather Turnip Casserole

Here’s one more root vegetable recipe before we switch over to asparagus and salad greens. I clipped this out of a New York Magazine while we still lived in NYC, because we occasionally shopped at Windfall Farms. I also don’t really have any good rutabaga recipes, other than our standard roast-everything-in-a-pan method. “Hold on there, Lindsay”, you might say, “The title of this post says ‘turnip’ not ‘rutabaga’.” Yes, observant reader, it is actually . . . → Read More: Gilfeather Turnip Casserole

Dark Days Challenge Week 6: Embracing Curly Kale

In our sixth week of the Dark Days Challenge, we learned to appreciate curly kale. We love love love lacinato/Tuscan/dinosaur/black and Red Russian varieties, but for some reason we (*cough* Erik *cough*) discriminate against the standard curly variety.

Feasting at Flying Pigs Farm

How to Make Ale-braised Red Cabbage with Kielbasa

We used the Kielbasa that we had in the freezer left over from making Casoulet. I’d say it was probably a little over one foot long. In the end it yielded about three half-inch pieces of Kielbasa per serving of cabbage, which was . . . → Read More: How to Make Ale-braised Red Cabbage with Kielbasa

How to Make Pizza

Pizza is a definite DIY situation. It’s cheaper, less likely to be delivered cold, and only covered in surplus commodity cheese if you like that kind of thing. The most time-consuming part is making the dough, which has to rise for an hour or so (although you could cut this to 30 minutes if you were in a big hurry). Because of this, we usually save pizza for weekends and plan to work out, . . . → Read More: How to Make Pizza
