Seared Bok Choy with Bacon Vinaigrette – Bittman

From Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Mark says, “You can grill the bok choy instead of searing it if you like.” 1 1/2 to 2 pounds bok choy, parboiled and shocked 6 ounces bacon, finely chopped 3 tablespoons sherry or white wine vinegar, Artesano’s Honey Wine vinegar is also really nice here. Salt and […]


Flaky Beet Biscuits

We had plenty of questions and requests for the recipe at last weekend’s holiday market, so by popular demand here is the farm’s (ok really Donna’s) Flaky Farm Biscuit recipe, with a beet twist.  These are delightful to eat and with the beet addition are a treat for the eyes as well!  You can make […]

Delicious Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Another reason to love extended family…they roast veggies to perfection!  My brother-in-law and sister-in-law were linchpins in showing me how delicious two of my least favorite veggies growing up could be  — roasted beets and roasted Brussels Sprouts. Simple and perfection.  Only way I have had them better was Lee Duberman’s (chef at Ariel’s Restaurant) […]

Brining & Roasting a Turkey

We generally brine our turkeys, out of habit now almost. And because the Cooks Illustrated timing seems to work well for us, and if we are using a frozen turkey, brining is a GREAT way to finish defrosting the bird.  We often use a cooler for the brining process and put in cold water and […]

Asado Potatoes (or Beets)

Adapted from Anya Fernald’s Home Cooked – Essential Recipes for a New Way to Cook, which is fabulous!  Let’s just say the first section is on building blocks and it includes lard and 3 bone broths, including Trotter Broth – she hooked me there.  She got her start with the Slow Food movement in Italy and […]


Green Tomato Cake

This recipe came from the Farley’s and it is not only a great use of lots of green tomatoes, but a delicious spice cake.  So delicious that another member, Becca, of Two Potters made at least 5 one year for the Studio Tour open house.  And I believe they got gobbled up.  You can also chop […]

Simple Roast Chicken—from Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything

We tried several different recipes, but ALWAYS come back to this one because it is easy and reliably great. And our chickens are reliable done in about an hour (in our convection oven). Just make sure your chicken is fully defrosted and best if it comes to room temperature before cooking. In his updated cookbook […]
