Recent Recipes and more to try

Zucchini exploding season. We have our own coming from the garden, and last night I picked up a CSA share from Jericho Settler’s Farm because a friend was out of town and was nice enough to give it to us! So, herein I am drowning in the zukes. I secretly desired this overload after reading Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. šŸ™‚

I finally got to make the recipe I was tortured with during my fast. šŸ™‚

Zucchini Ricotta Cheesecake

I made it alongside a local chicken (left from our Applecheek farm meat share) flavored with sage and oregano from the garden. The meal was 95% local, and 50% from my own garden. Lovin’ this kind of pride šŸ™‚

The cheesecake (savory) recipe calls or just the right amount of lemon zest and dill – you can taste each element on it’s own.

I get so many recipe ideas from 101cookbooks.com – her photos are what do it. The recipes are usually simple, or at least she makes them seem so, and her photography just places me in a quiet kitchen, surrounded by wood and ceramics…lovely.

Recipes I will be trying soon…

Spiced tomato gratin
Cianfotta

Garden update – tomatoes have also begun to turn red, baby delicata squash on the vine, carrots ready any time we are! Ah, let’s throw more parties/potlucks, i want to cook for you all!
