Sufferin’ Succotash !

If I were any more of a geek, that – in fact, would be my preferred cursing exclamation. It expels the appropriate amount of exasperation… it’s food related… and when you say Sufferin’ Succotash… people know you mean business… Over the years sitting on my grandmother’s porch, I became a pro at shelling limas, or […]

The Picnic

Even in the mountains, there’s no escaping the heat. Nights have barely broken 78 degrees and the daytime temps here at Turtle Creek are a consistent, sweltering, egg frying on the pavement – 98 degrees. It’s almost enough to make a person lose their religion. But this morning, we woke to an amazing thing, 68 […]

Hay Bale Gardening Lactose Free Vegetables

The Intruder in the Sprouts

I’s been inhumanly hot in the garden, the white flies are devastating everything with a leaf, and I scream like a little girl every time a Japanese Colossal Hornet gets within twenty feet of me (believe me, I have every right). So, needless to say, the garden is suffering. My tidy produce spot has become […]

Curb Market Crawl – Cornfield Beans

When we were kids, my brothers and I would trade off spending the weekends at my grandparent’s house. We would wake up early on Saturdays to fresh baked biscuits, fried ham, coffee and whiffs of my granddad’s pipe tobacco permeating through the house. Once they got us rousted out of bed, breakfast would be those […]

Curb Market Crawl – White Cucumbers

White, Jack Frost or Armenian all refer to the same thing, White Cucumbers. Though not truly white, for a garden vegetable, it’s probably as white as you’ll see. They are a small-ish, fine seeded fruit with a milder, almost lemony flavor and none of the bitterness you tend to find in most of the heirloom […]

Curb Market Crawl – Big Honkin’ Carrots

I’d love to say I found these at some out of the way produce stand – tucked into the hills like some bountiful Garden of Eden. I didn’t. I don’t think any grower in their right mind would intentionally grow horse-leg carrots. I got these at that meglo-maniacal warehouse food store we all love to […]

Man On Fire

Since it’s grilling time… let’s get at it. I’ve contemplated doing a whole “big meat on the grill” thing, but when you get right down to it… it’s meat on fire – nothing terribly complicated or glamorous… and I’m OK with that. I love me some charcoal cooked meat. The thing that makes grilling special, […]

Simple Dinner Sunday – Chard Salad With Hot Bacon Dressing

It’s funny how trends change, and something that was a fixture on every restaurant menu just vanishes from sight. In the wink of an eye… it’s just gone. I used to love spinach salads with hot bacon dressing. Crisp, dense, tightly curled spinach leaves, chopped boiled eggs, and that sweet / tart vinegary dressing laced […]
