Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

Creamy Broccoli, Chicken and Pasta

Creamy Broccoli, Chicken and Pasta by Salad Foodie

Here’s a variation of an earlier recipe using zucchini and ham I posted (see Useful Links below the recipe), only this time I tried a different meat and veggie, and tweaked the flavors a bit. It’s still low calorie and low fat and a nice casual family dinner. As a saucy one dish meal it’s a comfort food unto its own yet one far less…

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tapioca Pudding by Salad Foodie

A delightful tapioca pudding for a special occasion. So ruby-red pretty, and with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, you'll think you died and went to heaven. If fresh rhubarb is not available substitute frozen, and mash or cut up after simmering if necessary.

Here is an easy-to-remember recipe for delicious, hearty Tuscan-style bread and vegetable soup. It calls for equal amounts of each vegetable, and then you build the soup starting with the firmest vegetables, finishing with the tenderest ones. You can certainly adjust, or estimate, the amounts of any or all ingredients, but if you’ve…
