Juniper Spiced Leg of Lamb with Blackberry-Corn Relish

Hokay so… wedding cake is finished (yay!) and on its way to Florida now! Which means two things: 1) it’s almost vacation time!!; and 2) my family gets to eat fresh, homemade food again. Not that we didn’t enjoy all that pizza. But considering how much I love to cook needless to say I’m happy

Halibut with Beets, Radish, and Salsa Verde

Well, it seems as though Summer has officially arrived in New England!! And other than vacations, beach days, and lots of ice cream, what that also means is that I find myself wanting to spend fewer hours in the kitchen. Which is kind of a bummer because I love cooking! But its very challenging to

Sake Washed Tuna Tartare with Grapefruit Slaw

I used to hate raw fish. I was a I’ll-eat-fried-shrimp-and-nothing-else kinda girl. Now I love it! So it’s funny to now look back and wonder when that switch to raw fish lover happened. My first raw fish memory is slightly blurry. My dad was most definitely there, so it must have happened early in my

Ras al Hanout Chicken with Brown Butter Roasted Vegetables

Ok so right off the bat, I know this recipe doesn’t scream “Summer”. The inspiration for this dish came mostly because I was wanting a dish that would leave me with delicious leftovers. The downside to all of the fresh and crisp Summer recipes I’ve shared lately is they dont have a long shelf life.

Welp, I hate to break it to you but we thought it was time to take a little break from Fish Week. The heat in the kitchen (and outside) was starting to clash with the constant aroma of fish. So we decided to head to France… by way of this Warm French Chicken Salad.

Fish Week at the Farmstead house continues! And I’m probs going to confuse a few people with this dish. If you remember yesterday’s post I mentioned that fruits and vegetables that grow together, go together (despite the bizarre-ness of combining sweet fruit with savory dishes). What that means is that all fruits grown within the

Slow Roasted Salmon with Spicy Fennel-Asparagus Salad

Slow Roasted Salmon with Spicy Fennel-Asparagus Salad

You know I love a good salmon dish, but this Slow Roasted Salmon with Spicy Fennel-Asparagus Salad is a doozy. Not in the overly complicated, spend all day in the kitchen, with a bazillion techniques and steps kinda way. No, its a doozy in the I-got-dinner-prepped-so-fast-I-was-able-to-take-a-nap kinda way. I even mentioned to my wife during

Green Tea Poached Fish with Carrot-Ginger Sauce

I remember first discovering how versatile, complex, and exciting food could truly be. I was amazed when I first tried a dish similar to this Green Tea Poached Fish with Carrot-Ginger Sauce. Poaching a protein in anything other than stock was so foreign to me at the time and yet, when I learned about this
