It’s the middle of summer and the farmers’ market is bursting with, well, everything. Every week there is another treat that wasn’t there the last. At my market right now those treats are the fattest, juiciest blackberries ever and the start of the sweet corn. For me one of the best parts of going to […]Read More Blackberry Sweetcorn Muffins
So as I walked into class the other day, Anna and Sarah excitedly presented me with a very special bouquet for my birthday. It was lush and full and contained only two things… fennel and bok choy. Of course I would make this soup!Read More Bok Choy Chicken Soup!
So I was listening to the radio the other day and something caught my attention. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since. The man (whose name I honestly didn’t catch as I wish I could give him credit!) was commenting on the health and obesity crisis in our communities today […]Read More Who controls the health in your home?
So there I was at our local chain restaurant… and I saw they had broth bowls. With noodles and chicken. Of course I had to order one. It was delicious, I have to say. But as I enjoyed it I thought to myself, “Beth, you can totally make this yourself!” And so I did. The […]Read More Broth Bowl

My treats this week are a combo of markets… My local farmers’ market is sadly over for the season, so my produce, and thus my weekly food prep, must come from different places. Luckily, a neighboring community offers a monthly market indoors and I visited it last weekend. It’s always nice to visit new markets; […]Read More Sunday Funday = Food Prep!
My favorite local market runs May-October, so during the winter I get other opportunities to find my fit…Read More My Winter Farmers’ Market!
On the last day of this season’s farmers’ market my favorite farmer brought an extra special treat that he hadn’t delivered the entire year – POTATOES! There were bags full of big, beautiful, lumpy, red and white tubers. I was enticed immediately. I love potatoes; they are the ultimate comfort food. My family feels the […]Read More Chicken Potato Soup!
