My garden this year has a jalapeno plant that’s been an absolute champion when it comes to producing peppers. It’s provided for countless loaves of bread, bowls of guac, marinades, and omelettes. Despite having so many uses, I still found myself struggling to keep up with the output, so I decided it was time to

Last week, we learned how to make garlic dill pickles. This week, we’re trying something a little different. I love pickles, and I always have, but I’ve never liked sweet pickles. Unfortunately, I realized that I’d run out of dill while I was in the middle of mixing brine for the cucumbers I’d already sliced

The last time I made pickles was when I was a kid. I remember very little of it other than it being a fun experiment. Now that more of us have been spending more time at home (and AE has already covered sourdough territory), there’s no better time than the present to experiment with canning

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

If you want to try something interesting and new, you’re in the right place. Eggplant is a fruit that doesn’t have much of a place in American cuisine. Most of us have only ever experienced it in the form of eggplant parmesan or maybe on the grill. If you’re in the mood for a spicy,

The hubby and I have taken a liking to a local stir fry place over the course of the past year, but eating out a lot can get expensive pretty quickly. I got a stove-friendly wok from Nana, so I decided that now was as good a time as any to break it out and

Eggplant is kind of a strange fruit. It’s mostly water, and other than providing a reasonable amount of dietary fiber (about 5 grams per cup of eggplant), it really doesn’t have much else to offer on its own. However, its blandness and lack of… everything makes it a great vehicle for sauces, breadings, and other

Chili? In summer?? Oh yeah, I went there. Even if you live somewhere hot, in my opinion, there’s never a wrong time of year for chili. This one even features a fresh summer vegetable — zucchini! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s another slow cooker feature, so you can set it and

Artichokes are one of my favorite vegetables, and I wish I could eat them every day. They’re a fun finger food, less work than crab legs, and surprisingly filling. Another bit of good news is that, if you’ve never roasted artichokes at home, it’s not a terribly difficult recipe, though it does take a little
