Of course, there are other major motives: to strengthen and grow our local food system, strengthen our local economy, and to advocate for good, mindful agriculture practices and products.

Quick Roasted Broccoli

With the holidays upon us, it helps to have a fridge full of Good Food and a few quick recipes handy. Broccoli is one of my favorite staple vegetables because it truly is versatile– you can saute it in a curry or stir fry, add it to pasta water at the end of cooking, grill […]

Apple Pancakes

Friends, does it seem like the apples multiply in your refrigerator when you’re not looking? Even though I eat an apple a day this time of year, it always seems like I can never make a dent in the apple bin. So I was excited to find this old recipe for apple pancakes, which have […]

Mexican Corn Salad

Hello friends, how has your summer of good food been? I have been enjoying the abundance of beautiful stone fruits and working on far too many canning projects. I’ve also been doing quite a lot of summer entertaining for friends and family. Here is a delicious way to use corn on the cob in a […]

In Greece, flavors and techniques for making melitzanasalata vary tremendously, depending […]

Eggplant Parmesean

by Ward Hartenstein I was always a bit scared to attempt Eggplant Parmesan. “Too much prep.” or ” It smells up the house to saute the eggplant.” But I found a baked eggplant recipe that (while still involving a lot of prep) seems much easier and healthier. Here it is (cut recipe in half for […]

Good Food Chicken Dinner

I am a big fan of the delicious, “finger lakin’ good” farm-raised chickens (Autumns’ Harvest Farms) we get in the GFC chicken share.* If this is your first experience with whole chickens, you might be wondering how to roast it. (It took me quite a few years of living on my own before I decided […]

Comforting Cabbage Soup

Friends in Good Food, This week got off to a raucous start for us Kelloggs: early Monday morning we were awoken by a police chase which culminated in the suspect emerging from our bushes.

German Plum Cake

With cooler weather this week, I decided it was a good time to do a little baking. I try to squirrel away summer’s bounty into my freezer and canning jars as much as possible, but over the years I’ve found that, when it comes to freezing, I like prepared foods rather than randomly frozen bags […]

Kohlrabi Slaw

My friends, Summer is in full swing, the fruit is ripe and juicy, and our shares are full of wonderful vegetables. Some of those vegetables, however, are not ones we’re used to, like kohlrabi. What is a kohlrabi, you ask? Kohlrabi is a German turnip and a member of the Brassica family, like cabbage, broccoli, […]

Golden-Crusted Brussel Sprouts

This is the only way to eat brussels sprouts: cut in half and cooked until deliciously tender inside and perfectly brown and crusted on the outside. Use brussels sprouts that are on the small size and tightly closed. You can finish these with many different types of cheese but I tend to go for Parmesan […]

Butternut Squash, Rosemary and Garlic Lasagna

Butternut squash is a staple for many of us during the winter.  Those of you who are members of our Winter CSA received some pureed, which makes it even simpler to cook.    So, I thought I’d share the Roasted Butternut Squash, Rosemary and Garlic Lasagna recipe we made last night.  The last time I made […]

Butternut Squash Bisque

Perfect for the cooler weather. Something I tried that is not listed in the recipe was to add 1 tsp. of finely chopped Seranno Pepper. Talk about kicking it up a notch! Recipe inspired from
