Flatbread Pizza With Asparagus and Goat Cheese

This simple grilled flatbread is a summer staple. In spring, top it with asparagus and goat cheese, but, as the seasons change, try mixing it up with local topping combinations like Strawberries, Basil & Leelanau Raclette or Summer Squash, Zucchini & Boss Mouse Montasio! This simple five-minute naan is even tasty enough to eat by […]

Simple Vegetable Soup

I first encountered this soup in Ireland, where the recipe varies from home to home based upon their likes and what they may have on hand.   Though wonderful as written, don’t be afraid to substitute or add.  Roasted root vegetables, squash, sweet potatoes, broccoli, even leftover green bean casserole.  I wouldn’t hesitate to include any of them because […]

As the holidays approach, here is an ace for your sleeve: a wonderfully unfussy and extremely versatile tart that comes together quickly, thanks to the help of the food processor.

Brown Butter Zucchini Cornbread

A recipe really is only as good as its ingredients and the care you put into it. Take this version of cornbread for example.  Source the best ingredients, local when possible, like eggs from Morganic Farm or buttermilk from Shetler Family Dairy.

Grilled Peach & Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Ripe peaches on the grill simply scream summer. The natural sugars in a peach are taken to an entirely new level when placed over the flame. Homemade salsas are a quick and easy way to bring together the best local produce the season has to offer. With gorgeous heirloom tomatoes, flavorful cucumbers and sweet juicy […]

Grandpa’s Easy Fridge Pickles

The only exact things about this recipe are the measurements for the brine.  Everything else is up for grabs – the amount of garlic or dill, the amount of heat you want, the vegetable or vegetables you use in your pickle, and even the amount of pickle you want to make. Unused brine can be poured into […]

Strawberry Season

It’s strawberry season in northern Michigan and we love this bright red beauty. You can snack on them by the quart, top them with whip cream or use them to color up a salad! Strawberries are packed with vitamins, fiber and high-levels of antioxidants and make a great addition to any meal, snack or dessert… even a cocktail!
