Multigrain Cereal Sandwich Buns

I started baking with sourdough after reading Cooked during the Homegrown summer reading group, and I've resolved to expand my baking repertoire.  This is a chewy, nutty-tasting bun that’s sturdy enough for sandwiches.

Prosciutto, Goat Cheese and Fig Jam on an Eggnog/Butternut Pizza Crust

Using food I can find marked down is kind of a thing of mine.  I can Seconds tomatoes when my garden doesn't produce enough, I buy day old naan whenever I see it, and marked down dairy products make my heart happy.  

But sometimes I get stumped with how to use them up before they go bad. 

Pizza crust made with eggnog and butternut squash?  Why not?…

Cranberry Apple Pecan Tangerine Mini Muffins

Just because it's after Christmas does not mean that you have to stop eating cranberries, right?  I mean, I eat pumpkin from September through until I use the last one from the Strategic Winter Squash Reserve around March.  Combining cranberries with tangerines from the fruit fundraiser makes for a tart and tangy and sweet, one could even say perky muffin (hey, it's an apt term).…

Eggnog Finnish Oven Pancake

I first had a Finnish oven pancake while working on a dairy farm in southeastern Finland.  I make it for my kids when they have leisurely winter mornings at home due to snow days--but it's also a yummy holiday breakfast.

A stand mixer makes easy work of this breakfast, as it requires 10 minutes of beating.

Cranberry Honey Butter

I'll be the first to admit that I'm no Martha Stewart--I can't roll this compound butter into anything that looks pretty.  But it's quick and easy to make, adds color to your holiday table, and uses cranberries while they are abundant in stores.

We like it on waffles/pancakes/Pumpkin Cranberry Maple Kugel as well as tossed with green beans, Brussels sprouts, and corn.…

Black Eyed Pea and Kale Salad in Salumi Cups

I don't know where the black eyed peas = good luck in the new year tradition started, but I do know that I get a hankering for black eyed peas around this time of year.

I created this appetizer to be a fun way to get my New Year good luck while using goodies from our farm share.

Poutine, An After Thanksgiving App

It's crazy for me, a US American ;) to be sharing a recipe for Poutine.  But I'm doing it anyway, because it's a fun use of one of our Thanksgiving leftover orphans--gravy.  

Always seem to have a bit of gravy leftover, and this is a wonderful way to enjoy it.  Especially good if you get to visit the cows providing your squeaky cheese curds!

You…
