It should come as no surprise that I love food of all kinds, but I particularly love curries. I love the way the simple act of combining 7 or 8 spices into an exotic mixture carries the aroma of far away places to my kitchen. Since I can’t travel to India right now, I’ll settle for a little taste of India at my dining room table right here in Montana. Plus, it’s a great way to use the CSA share this week! Want the recipe?

Dang it’s been hot lately! I think July is going to set some records here in Helena and elsewhere around Montana. When it gets really hot sometimes my appetite goes the way of the dodo and nothing sounds good to eat. I tend to focus on juicy fruits and vegetables–apples, nectarines, tomatoes, cucumbers, sugar snap peas (my favorite!)–that way I am eating, but I’m also getting lots of water, too. It seems like a win-win situation. That was the inspiration for this week’s CSA recipe. This salad combines a ton of veggies with a tangy balsamic vinaigrette and plenty of herbs. I hope you’ll try it! Looking for the recipe? It’s here.
MaeBelle is turning 12 this week! To celebrate, today we made a birthday cake using sweet potatoes, applesauce, carrots, and peanut butter. It was a hit! If you want a printable version of the recipe, it’s here. And of course, my goofy video showing how we made it today–it was an experiment in-the-making!
