One-Skillet Dinner with White Cod and Fresh Vegetables

White cod and yellow potatoes are a classic Mediterranean pairing. While a meal centered on this mild, flakey fish can seem gourmet, urban farmers with a busy schedules don’t need to spend a lot of time on it. I cooked up this delicious skillet dish, boasting a kaleidoscope of colors, all in one pan, and […]

apple swirls

Apple-Cinnamon Swirls

  One of my favorite fall flavors is apples, and these apple-packed pinwheels showcase the best of what the season has to offer in an easy yet impressive breakfast treat. The recipe is easily adaptable given the ingredients you have on hand: You can replace the chopped apples with one cup of applesauce or pumpkin […]

There are cream biscuits made with butter and savory scones made with […]

Shakshuka: Eggs Poached in Tomato Sauce

When I first starting cooking for myself, I turned to eggs cooked in tomato sauce for a warming, nourishing last-minute dinner. With a little sautéed garlic and a chopped onion (if I had one) in the pan, the gooey eggs broken into the sauce satisfied my hunger, and I’d wipe every last traces with a […]

Mixed Berry Custard

Mmmmm … berries. I love to pick them myself, which I often can at my CSA farm. My mind buzz turns off, replaced by bee buzz; the bees are way too busy to bother me. In the quiet berry patch, the focused search and careful reach for ripe berries is contemplative and soothing. Eat one […]
