Chopped Salad w/Blue Cheese Dressing – My Nepenthe

Chopped Salad w/Blue Cheese Dressing – My Nepenthe

We’re half way through April 2011. How did that happen? Are we the only ones feeling like we should still be in February? From the sound of all the snow falling throughout the cold regions of the country, we certainly should be in February! Obviously we’ve been hammered with work and we’re definitely not complaining.

Fried Minted Artichokes – A new addition to the Spring garden

Fried Minted Artichokes – A new addition to the Spring garden

Every spring, Diane and I go through the annual “What veggies are we going to plant?” ritual. First the weather starts to warm and we begin to crave more than leafy greens, sugar snap peas, radishes, and carrots.  We’ll hit Home Depot and nearly buy a bunch of boring varieties which we don’t really want […]

Spring Sweet Pea/Asparagus Pickles from “Sara Foster’s Southern Kitchen”

Spring Sweet Pea/Asparagus Pickles from “Sara Foster’s Southern Kitchen”

Mark my words, I am a pickle addict.  But my love of pickles wasn’t a loving  culinary journey in the beginning. Vietnamese cuisine is a collage of  fresh vegetables, layered flavors and diversity of textures. So pickles in all forms were always a key staple at our meals. As long as I could remember Mom […]

Red Rice Salad w/ Mint and Shallot Vinaigrette – A favorite whole grain

Red Rice Salad w/ Mint and Shallot Vinaigrette – A favorite whole grain

We’ve been up to our elbows lately with some new projects and late at the end of the day, nothing makes us happier than a big bowl of comfort food and a cocktail. Or two. Comfort food, regardless of how many devilish calories lurk in all the starch, always manages to calm our nerves and […]

Spicy Smoky Kale Chips

Spicy Smoky Kale Chips

Baked Kale Chips are always one of our forgotten favorites. When we plow through a big bowl of kale chips, we’re always reminding ourselves to make them again soon. But for some reason, this recipe gets buried under our pile of “must make again” list and regrettably, forgotten. That is, until someone makes them for […]

Orange & Fennel Salad with Toasted Fennel Vinaigrette – Welcoming Citrus Season

Citrus season has finally arrived in our garden and hopefully in about 4 more weeks, we’ll be able to share a few rounds with friends. Last year we doubled up on an extra blood orange tree (for Katie!) and an extra Eureka lemon tree. Plans for this year are to add 3 more citrus trees […]

Roasted Acorn Squash w/ Sage, Pine Nuts & of course, Butter

Baked acorn squash was never a dish that I obsessed over. Because of my love of butternut squash, acorn squash always seemed to hide in in the shadows of my other squash love affairs. It wasn’t until I started food blogging that I really understood the appeal of these cute acorn shaped globes.

Pickled Green Tomatoes & The Butcher and the Vegetarian

This year’s tomato track record isn’t all that bad yet and we’re immediately jumping on the pickling band-wagon. The current tomato plant count is 4 out of 20 died due to disease, which is much less than what we suffered last year.  In 2009, the whole nation suffered a tomato crisis where a late blight […]

Vietnamese Style Pickled Carrots from Eating Local Cookbook

I’ve fully embraced the fact that I’m addicted to salt and crunchies. To preen me away from a jar of anything picked is like separating a mother bear from her cub. Please don’t get between me and my precious jar of pickled vegetables. Just don’t even think of going there. OK? With that submission to salt made […]

Fresh Peas & Mint- Signs of Spring & Garden changes

What were once green, sprawling serpents have now reached  the peak of their pod-producing craze. The sugar-snap and snow peas have slowed down considerably and finally, we were able to keep up with them.

Shrimp Stir Fry with Sugar Snap Peas – Snow & Sugar Pea Garden Monster – Jamie Oliver cookbook

There’s an uncontrollable beast on the North end of the garden and it actually comes in two forms: sugar snap peas and snow peas. Our spring peas are like serpants, clinging to everything they can get their tendrils on. Once they latch on, pea flowers shoot out and within 3-4 days, we have fresh peas […]
