‘Tis the Season for No-Cook Pumpkin Pudding Pumpkin Yogurt Pudding Now that Halloween has passed, it’s time to eat those pumpkins!

Warm Up: Great Fall Recipes

Minestrone

Harvest Minestrone With Quinoa & Kale Minestrone is a thick vegetable/bean soup, usually with the addition of pasta.

Fall is firmly in the air; gardens are winding down. Time to make the most out of every plant! In my case, I have a lot more broccoli leaves than broccoli flowers. Luckily, the leaves are edible, too — just treat them as you would any other dark leafy green. By that, I mean briefly […]

Mexican-salad-with-shrimp

Summertime Shrimp Summertime just calls out for shrimp. And corn. And you can cook them both in the same pot! Fresh ears of corn only need three minutes of cooking time — any more than that, and they’ll be mushy instead of appealingly crisp.

The Strawberries of Summer

strawberries-with-almond-dust

‘Tis the season for strawberries! Juicy, sweet, lush organic strawberries. (I’m stipulating organic when it comes to strawberries because they are one of the top-sprayed fruits, and seeing as you’re eating the outside of the berry, it makes sense to opt for organic strawberries.) Most of the time, I like to have a variety of […]

DIY-ranch
