A delicious salsa is possible only during tomato season. My Blueberry Salsa recipe is an easy, healthy excuse to eat the rainbow and adding seasonal fruit makes it even better!

raspberry citrus wild rice salad

Aside from flip flops, watermelon, mojitos and straw hats nothing makes me happier than baskets full of locally grown berries. Living in a farm rich community makes savoring berry gems all too easy.

vegan baked oatmeal

The first time I had baked oatmeal was in a Lancaster County diner. I love a good bowl of oatmeal for breakfast but this took it to a whole new level! We grew up on honey drizzled oatmeal and grits not boxed sugary faux food. The baked oatmeal was more like an oatmeal cake but […]

restorative detox smoothies

Resorting to detox is often a post-holiday ritual. We indulge … then cleanse … then repeat. Buying into a cleanse-in-a-box, or deferring to a cabbage soup or cayenne honey tea diet is how some rebound from holiday indulgences. But the tastiest way to start a healthy eating plan is to resolve to eat the rainbow. […]

fruit juice recipe

One of my favorite ways to preserve the flavors of summer is infusing fruits into something or other, to be used later for a sweet or savory recipe. I’m not gonna lie… I infuse gin and vodka.  And rum. I infuse rum too. Don’t judge. I have an amazing strawberry gin that screams summer come […]

Do not make this recipe if you plan to be alone with the freshly baked tarts. They are irresistible. I don’t joke about sweets. I originally shared this recipe about 4 years ago-ish.

sweet and savory hand pies

Pies in each hand…isn’t that quintessentially summer? I was at Weaver’s Orchard today talking all about hand pies, the versatility of crusts, getting creative with seasonal sweet and savory filling and making ahead of time to freeze for later. Let’s talk dough. I like to play it easy so here are 3 go-to’s for hand-pie making, […]

favorite strawberry recipes

all in one post.  Let’s be honest.  Nothing is better than local, freshly picked strawberries.  Not the organic strawberries from California or the first strawberries that start to appear in the grocery stores in April.  Nothing is sweeter or more flavorful than sun warmed, freshly picked strawberries…. I’m only saying this because it’s not peach […]

frozen strawberry cobbler

It’s a total cheat but it must be done.  Your favorite ice cream flavor?  _______ (insert here)   Mine has to be vanilla bean…the milk, cream and sugar kind of vanilla bean (no weird fillers or eggs).  We grilled a tasty dinner and it’s still rather toasty going on 8p.   Cold dessert it is […]

Blueberry peach salsa, sounds like a super food to me. It’s not blueberry season but when Berks County Living asked me for a favorite superfood and recipe it had to be blueberries. Blueberries have been in my logo from the get go. I love this North American treat. Blueberries are not just for smoothies, think vinaigrettes to […]

Every year we get far away friends together for Christmas, after the holidays. We usually do this in January but schedules are challenging to coordinate…so it is Christmas in February.
