Blueberry Lime Crumble Bars

Blueberry season is upon us, my friends!  The husband and I have made an annual tradition of heading to a nearby berry farm and picking tons of a large, tart variety.  After thoroughly gorging ourselves, we freeze several quart bags of them to keep on hand for the rest of the year.  I made these bars a few weeks back with the last lingering frozen berries on hand, hoping that the berry farm would open soon.

Bacon & Leek Quiche

I LOVE quiche.  Out of any brunch dish, savory or sweet, if there's a quiche around that's what you'll find on my plate.  And so when my spring CSA delivered me a bounty of leeks, I knew it was time to make the most perfect of all quiches, chock-full of leeks, bacon, and cheese in a light eggy custard.  Oh yes, I'm so there.

Spring Vegetable Soup

It's Saturday, it's sunny, and the snow has melted away.  Dare I say it, I think winter has finally - FINALLY - released us from her cruel, icy grip.  While the majority of items in my weekly CSA share are still root vegetables, I thought I'd be slightly less locavore and spring (hah! a seasonal pun!) for some lovely thin asparagus spears at the market.

Make- Ahead Freezer Breakfast Burritos


I have a serious love of breakfast burritos.  No matter the ingredients, if there's a breakfast burrito on the menu there's a serious chance that will be what I order.  But they're also super easy to make at home, and this version is freezer-friendly to boot.  On a weekend, I'll make up a dozen so that we have them on hand at a moment's notice.  This basic version, I will admit, is my take on (gasp!) McDonald's breakfast burritos.  (It's one of the only things you'll ever see me eat from McD's.)

Mushroom-Barley Soup

Guys, sometimes I get cravings.  (And I don't understand why the word "craving" for women in my age bracket automatically implies pregnancy.  I'm pretty sure non-pregnant women - and men! - also have intense desires for certain foods.  But "craving" is so much easier to say, so lets drop it for now.)  The other day I decided I wanted, nay craved, beef and barley soup.

Crispy Butternut Squash Chips, Two Ways

Over the past few weeks, my CSA share has left me with an abundance of various winter squashes.  And by abundance, I mean they've been occupying half of our kitchen table.  I didn't grow up eating winter squash, so I'll admit it's a bit of a culinary blind spot.  Plus, it seems like no matter how it's prepared it has a vaguely baby-food-like consistency.

Cauliflower-Cheddar Soup

Guys, I can't believe it's already December!  My full-time job has seemed to overflow these past few months with project after project... after project... after freakin' project.  It's been insane, but I love my job and I'd much rather be crazy busy than crazy bored.  But the blog's been backlogging, so I wanted to share this delicious soup.
