Pork Chili & Cornbread - october 10, 2013

More tomatillos in the CSA box this week, so more pork chili. This time, a double batch. Here is a recipe from Simply Recipes that is basically the same as the one I use. It ran years ago in the SF Chronicle. Pork, tomatillos and beans are the main ingredients. We like to eat it with Deborah Madison's Buttermilk Skillet Cornbread, from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, p. 647.

Dan Dan Noodles - september 19, 2013

This is the second recipe I'm using from the SF Chronicle's spread on Asian noodles from a month or so back. Cold ramen noodles, sauce and a few sliced vegetables (carrots, cucumber, cilantro) should be just the thing for an easy weeknight dinner on a hot evening.

Cold Soba Noodles - september 10, 2013

I've been wanting to make some Asian soups for a while now, so how lucky am I that this recipe ran in last week's paper? Plus, it's a nice hot day outside. These noodles have an accompanying dipping sauce and I'll cut up some cucumbers, scallions and carrots to serve along side. Should be easy, right?

Soup, Bread and Cheese - august 28, 2013

I've been making this zucchini soup since June. My kids and my husband love it and I think it's pretty tasty, too. So we're sticking with a good thing. I make this with at least part of every bag of summer squash we get.

Soup and Grilled Steak - june 9, 2013

Unfortunately the basil I just planted in my garden last week isn't ready for harvest, so I'll have to pick that up at the store, along with some steak, since I don't have a cow of my own.

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup - april 27, 2013

The recipe is from the San Francisco Chronicle. I like to serve it with a good loaf of Arizmendi's sour dough bread and Cowgirl Creamery's Mt. Tam cheese. It makes a really good dinner!

San Francisco ChroniclePork Loin and Snap Peas - april 14, 2013

There are snap peas in the produce box again! This was such a success with the kids last time and so easy that I'll just make it again. Oh, and I liked it too, that always helps. The recipe is from the SF Chronicle, though I can't find it on their website so I offer you this link to the same recipe on bigoven.com.
