Crustless Swiss Chard Quiche

A couple of weeks ago at the farmers market, I bought some Rainbow Chard from Elizabeth Telling Farms – as I’ve never made chard before, I was looking for a recipe that would introduce me to the ingredient. In this recipe, it kind of reminds me of spinach. Can’t wait to experiment with chard and […]

15 Bean Soup

It’s a race against time in my pantry – me vs. Mr. Mousey to see who can get to my legumes and grains first. I found out the hard way that big blue plastic containers are no match for a clever little rodent (who knew that they could get under closed lids? we didn’t, which […]

Event: SFC Locavore Dinner!

Mrouziya (Honey Spiced Lamb)

Abruzzese Lamb and Red Pepper Ragu with Penne

One of the things that I love about Cooking Light is that their pasta recipes are usually pretty awesome – you can’t really tell that they’re lower-fat. This is one that I like to use when I have leftover ground lamb laying around – most of the other ingredients are usually pantry items that I […]
