These little tomato beauties are growing just outside our front door. Literally, we don’t even have to go off of our steps to pick them. They’re slow to ripen this year, but mighty sweet. We love a good Bruschetta, or our cold Tomato Mozzarella Salad, which is a must this time of year when the… Read More Tomato Black Pepper Mozzarella Appetizer
Few things are as soul satisfying to me as growing, picking, preserving, and cooking food for others. Actually, I’m not sure anything is as satisfying to me as those things. I love the entire process from start to finish. I even like grocery shopping and meal planning. Reading cookbooks in bed is not foreign to… Read More Today’s Harvest and Garden Update

The flavor is amazing too, just enough peach with a hint of apricot and cherry all combined with the chunky texture of a good jam and that sweet… Read More Peach Apricot Cherry Jam-Recipe

Our neighbor was incredibly generous in letting us pick however many cherries we wanted this summer. We picked and pitted and… Read More Cherry Habanero Jam-Recipe
