Winter Farmer’s Market Salad

I tried my hand again at farming. This time purely by default. When my farmers left the garden they left it chock full of goodies. Beautiful winter veggies that were going to go to seed if I didn’t do something quickly. So one afternoon I trekked out back with a Lululemon bag in hand and a … Continue reading

Butternut Squash and Leek Soup with Cornbread Croutons

This recipe is a prime example of how hectic things have been in the Foodie kitchen. I started this post back in early November of 2012. That’s right, 2012.  Since then, I’ve made it a handful of times including this Thanksgiving to rave family reviews, and many a request for the recipe. “Don’t worry, I’ll blog about … Continue reading

Vacation Villa Fried Okra

On our recent trip to the Bahamas, I was taken aback at the cost of food. Milk was nearly $8 a gallon, a dozen eggs was $7 and as you can imagine the cost to eat out, even more. Since I am innately frugal and have two small somewhat picky eaters, I decided to schlep a large … Continue reading

It’s been quite the busy summer at the Foodie house.

Well, Boot camp is officially over and I didn’t come in first place. Sigh. For weeks now, I’ve been mad-dogging my competition “Robin” by keeping my weight loss totals hush-hush and slowly hacking 2 minutes off my incredibly slow mile. She knew I was after her and she really wanted first prize as well. There may or … Continue reading

Kumquat and Hoosier Momma BBQ Sauce

Kumquat season is back! This recipe was one I created last year but never had the chance to post. With my entire series on Kumquats (see- Kumquat Tea Cakes, Kumquat Chutney, Kumquat Curry Chicken, Deconstructed Kumquat Salad), I may have burned myself out on those tiny little citrus goodies. So here is my chance at filing this recipe out … Continue reading

Homemade Granola with Cashews, Pistachios, Cranberries and Flaxseed

You knew something healthy was coming after my last post. It turns out that four weeks into bootcamp- I’m not starving, I’m losing weight, and I’m still drinking (albeit a lot less) wine. Hubs has been my rock. He’s this uber-happy 5:30am alarm-setting, goal-maintaining, worker-outer. He sets my alarm, wakes me up with the happiest pep-talk, and before … Continue reading
