Soft, pillowy whole wheat crumpets slathered with strawberry balsamic jam… an absolutely perfect way to start your day!   Have you ever had a crumpet? If not, you’re really missing out!

Pork Chops with Cider Pan Sauce

After talking about it for years, Shawn and I finally signed up for a farmshare/CSA type thing-y. Yup – in November. Not exactly prime harvest time here in upstate New York, but I’m determined to make it work. I figure as packed as my cabinets are, as long as I have a steady stream of […]
