9 Vegetables You Can Eat as Dessert

Submitted by admin on Tue, 08/14/2018 - 11:10

I'm not typically a sneaky chef. I'm lucky that, so far, my daughter eats the same food at dinner that my husband and I are eating. She loves "crazy" stuff like beets, parsnips and rutabaga. That being said, she'd choose a sweet treat over veggies any day, like most kids her age. So I'm not adverse to sneaking more veggies in where she least expects it—dessert. And, let's face it: a little extra veg couldn't hurt the grownups either.

Many store-bought tomato sauces have heaps of added sugar to tame the natural acidity of tomatoes. Plus, they're usually loaded with sodium. But if you can turn on an oven, you can make a healthy sauce from scratch. And it tastes really good, too.

Any type of tomatoes will work. Romas are our favorite. Their mild-sweet flavor is consistent from season to season. Beefsteak tomatoes have more water, so you'll have to cook the sauce longer. And, depending on the variety, heirloom tomatoes can affect a sauce's color.

How to Get the Most Out of Your CSA

Submitted by admin on Mon, 05/21/2018 - 16:03

I’m a bit of a CSA junkie.

I’ve been a CSA member for the better part of the last 12 years. I love supporting local farmers and being challenged to sometimes cook things I don’t typically buy or finding ways to make my family love certain veggies (or at least accept them for that meal).
