Chicken Stifado and YaYa's Potatoes

This is a great little stewed chicken recipe that is chock full of Mediterranean flavors – while great on its own, it’s absolutely fabulous paired with some lemon roasted potatoes. It’s a good choice any time of the year, but really hits a spot on a cold winter night. Greek Chicken Stifado recipe courtesy CDKitchen […]

What a Week!

Crazy, crazy week that has kept me from posting because I’ve been up to my eyeballs in the crisis-of-the-day. From my netbook revolting on me (and subsequent transfer, as we speak, of irreplacable files to a new computer) to my stove almost killing someone (and the subsequent replacement, delivery and installation of all new appliances), […]

Not too many pictures from this farmers market Saturday, I’m afraid to say. I believe it was because it was my first full day at home after Dodd, and I was still trying to get used to taking pictures from a wheelchair, thus many less good ones came out. Definitely a milestone day, nonetheless. OPEN […]

Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy

This dish is one of my all time comfort food favorites, great for any part of the day. I like to make this dish in winter, when I’m looking for more stick-to-your-bones types of fare rather than something light. The drippings are what makes the gravy, so don’t skimp.

Rabbit and Horticultural Bean Stew

Barb is an Athens, OH blogger, and as a lover of all things local, and many things Athens, was immediately drawn to her writing, her recipes, and the simple recipes that result in spectacular dishes. This recipe, in particular, I made after a trip to the huge farmers market in Athens on one fine Saturday. […]

Quark Spatzle

I came across this recipe while searching for a way to use quark from Blue Jacket Dairy. Even though I love spatzle as a base for a delicious stew (sauerbraten, I’m looking at you!), this preparation is a vegetarian meal unto itself. I love what the browning process does to them. I could eat this […]

It’s finally starting to feel like winter around here – we finally got a little snow. No more than just a dusting, but just enough to remind us winter hasn’t finished rearing its ugly head just yet. What better time to look at pictures from last summer’s farmers markets, and to start counting down the […]
