Spring Garden 2018


When we pick the first green onion and first green tomato from the spring garden, then all that planting we did on a cold day in January pays off!  There is nothing like taking a walk out to the garden and coming back to the kitchen with a basket full of fresh vegetables for the evening meal. We have had a great spring garden this year with just the right amount of rain to have wonderful green vegetables and weeds of course. We are trying a little different garden space approach this year in a smaller area with maybe not so much to maintain, but with great production.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Potatoes and Sausage


When we have fresh green beans and potatoes in the garden I can't resist making this flavorful Slow Cooker meal for my family. If my vegetables are not ready to hit the Slow Cooker, then I can always pick up the ingredients at my local farmers market. When you walk in the front door in the evening the aroma of this dish announces a great dinner ahead. This is a full meal and all you will have to add is a nice salad and dessert for a delicious meal.

Asparagus and Berries Flatbread Salad


This Flatbread Salad is one of my favorite salad's to have for lunch. I love the combination of vegetables, salad greens and fruit, then topped with a little cheese. All of this goodness is heaped on a cheese covered flatbread, then drizzled with a wonderful vinaigrette. Relax at your favorite table and enjoy!

Fried Green Tomatoes with Buttermilk Dressing


I get so excited when the green tomatoes start showing up on the vines. Most of our very first green tomatoes every year will be turned into Fried Green Tomatoes, it is a treat that we look forward to and just love. My recipe is a family recipe that was handed to me by my Grandmother and it has been changed very little since that time.  Lets get these green tomatoes in the frying pan.
