Farm Fresh and Local Produce 6/26/2010

I still wasn’t feeling 100% this past weekend, but I couldn’t resist the ritual of my Saturday morning farmers market trips, especially now since so many things are available. We started, as usual, bright and early at the North Market – Mrs. Rhoads had the first peaches of the year, and was also kind enough […]

Behold the Fish Boat

Oddly enough, even though I’ve lived in Columbus for the better part of 15 years now, I had never been to Comfest. I don’t know what exactly kept me away – the traffic nightmares, the horror stories, maybe knowing that it wasn’t Paul’s thing and that he would “harsh my mellow”,  so to speak – […]

Beet and Goat Cheese Crostini

It’s hard to believe that just a couple years ago I absolutely hated beets. Couldn’t even stand the smell of them, as a matter of fact. These days? I can’t get enough. My favorite way to eat them lately? Crostini spread with a bit of Lucky Penny goat cheese, with sliced roasted baby red beets, […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 6/5/2010

I’m a little bit late getting last weekend’s market report up – this week was finals week for me, with the first part of the week being consumed by finishing up my anatomy class, and the latter part with addressing issues that happened during my practical that really bothered me – I’m finally able to […]
