Baked Apples Stuffed with Quinoa, Mushrooms, and Dried Cranberries

A couple of weeks ago I visited Fungi Ally, a local mushroom grower in Western Massachusetts, and I picked up about 3 lbs of assorted mushrooms. That probably sounds excessive, but let me explain. Over the last couple of years that I have been sourcing almost exclusively from farmers markets, I’ve noticed the lack of…

Parsnip Potato Scallion Pancakes

Scallions, sometimes called green onions or spring onions, are little onions that haven’t finished growing into large, mature onion bulbs. Scallions are milder in taste than fully grown onions, and they’re just now being harvested. Parsnips, however, are at their end for the year. They grow in late summer/early fall, and many farms overwinter them. While…

Fish Tacos with Cabbage Kohlrabi Slaw and Avocado Crema

Last year started my love affair with kohlrabi, an underutilized winter vegetable, and this winter I am excited to cook with it again. Kolhrabi overwinters well, but it’s getting to the end of the it’s time. Pretty soon we’ll have spring onions and asparagus, but for the next couple of weeks, kohlrabi will still be…

Sweet Potato and Beet Chips with Honey Garlic Goat Cheese Dip

These chips are fun to make, fun to eat, and fun to serve for a spring break treat or at a party. Because they’re bright orange and red, they’ll stand out on your table and look way more impressive then a bag of potato chips from the store. Impress your guests or let your kids…

Inside the Discovery Portal

Squash, Sprouts and Spinach Buddha Bowl

Basically, a buddha bowl can be anything you want it to be (and basically, it’s just a salad). Use whatever you’ve got in the fridge, and it’s a great end-of-the-week…

National New England Clam Chowder Day

It’s National New England Clam Chowder Day, and I could think of no way better to celebrate than to buy a cup of my favorite soup from one of Boston’s finest seafood vendors: Red’s Best. My husband and I swung by the Red’s booth at the Boston Public Market and bought one tuna poke bowl…

Kabocha (Sunshine) Squash Risotto

At the last CSA pickup for Stearns Farm, we received a kabocha squash. It’s orange just like a sugar pumpkin, but it’s much smaller. The sign said to roast with butter and sugar, but weeks went by and it just sat on my counter. One day my brother told me that he had made a…
