Maybe it was the sun during my run or maybe it was the 8 mile bike ride with Granola Baby in the trailer--but when I came home famished 10 minutes before the big kids' bus came along, we ended up with the most random dinner. Homemade waffles, black bean soup and cheesy steak fries. Told … Continue reading Cheesy steak fries
We start out Pesach with grand plans. We're feeling like royalty--dressed in our finest clothes, the table is set for a king and we even lean to drink our wine. And then, only a few hours into the holiday, the matzah, matzah balls, brisket, potatoes and chocolate-eggy-sugary-potato-starch concoction settles in, and we feel like beached … Continue reading Pesach, Granoladox style
It's early December, and I harvested most of our dinner from the backyard farm garden. Sure, it's been a warm winter so far, but there definitely has been frost on the ground some nights, and both our kale and our sunchokes made it into December. Now, if that sounds like serious gardening skills, it's not, … Continue reading Garden winners–in December!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. We haven't had winter squash around here since...well, last winter. Now we can't stop eating it. Lucky for us, there are … Continue reading Fall for squash

SOUPS Squash soup Cauliflower soup Pumpkin soup Strawberry rhubarb soup Gazpacho SIDES Cauliflower popcorn Farro Salad … Continue reading Pesach, Granoladox style
As if there aren't enough rules on Passover, I've added one more. This one, though, makes the holiday a lot more pleasurable (and digestible!): I won't make or eat anything on Pesach that I wouldn't enjoy eating during the rest of the year. That said, my plan for the next few weeks is to include … Continue reading ‘Greated’ root vegetables
