Happy Birthday Blog

Happy belated birthday to our blog, one year old in July! In celebration, here's a collection of some of the recipes from the last year that have become our favorites.

Quick and easy:
Simple chickpea spread (or this one, which is even easier)

Perfect for a two-course dinner party (elegant but not overwhelming, and most of the prep can be done ahead of time):
Grilled peach salad (recipe coming soon to a blog near you)

Most addictive:

Favorite side veggies:
Roasted Red Russian kale, with or without balsamic reduction
Roasted delicata squash with leeks and sage (good for a potluck, too, since it's easy to make in a big batch and slice into halves or thirds)

How about you -- any favorites so far? Or nominations for ingredients we should try to tackle next?

Here's to Year #2!


  1. My favorite was the salmon with garlic blossoms. We tried using a little pressed garlic (about 1/2 a clove) instead of the garlic blossoms and it was still excellent.

  2. Happy birthday blogita! Thank you for helping us out on those difficult evenings when, staring at our most recent CSA acquisitions, we were totally stumped. And congratulations, Alison, on the wonderful photos to whet our appetites. Here's wishing you both a successful new year, with many more tips, photos, and recipes. Here's a challenge: cauliflower.
