Brown Butter Spice Cake

Super way to use leftover roasted winter squash! Blogger Heidi Swanson of award winning 101 Cookbooks says this is more of a cake-like bread than an actual cake, and “it might be the most wonderfully fragrant cake” she has ever baked. She allows latitude if you don’t have garam masala, suggesting pumpkin pie spices or another Indian curry or spice blend.

What’s Fresh, November 1

Farmers’ booths have as much green in them as they have orange. Who would have thought? This cooler weather is perfect for fall greens like collards, bok choy, kale, Swiss chard, mustard greens, mizuna, water cress, sorrel, arugula, and spinach. Lush lettuces, mostly hydroponically grown, are plentiful. Starter plants of many greens and herbs will feed you and decorate your yard during the cooler months. Zucchini and cucumbers are still producing, as well as acorn squash, herbs, sprouts...   | Read More

Fall Proteins & Kids Day Wrap Up

What’s Fresh, October 25

The market is a great place to find seasonal color for yard or table with pumpkins, winter squashes, and colorful seasonal plants like pansies, violas, and edible Swiss chard and kales. Apples probably won’t be found anymore. However, persimmons are in their prime right now. This far south, persimmons benefit from a time in the freezer to develop their sweetness.
