Why You Should Start Shuckin!

Why You Should Start Shuckin!

This past weekend Camille and I took Wilder with a few guests on a little Maine adventure. Before arriving at our destination, the Damariscotta river, we weaved our Subaru down windy roads, stopping at country markets, springs, and antique barns along the way. 

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters

Summer brings zucchini and sometimes those zucchini get huge! Forget to harvest them and a 6-7 inch squash somehow turns into a large club. Because of this massive growth, zucchini get woody and rather unappetizing so grating is one of the best techniques to save this seasonal ingredients from ending up in the compost.

Chilled Pea and Caramelized Onion Soup

Chilled Pea and Caramelized Onion Soup

Here's a simple summer soup I whipped up for the Clean Blog featuring sweet peas and caramelized onions. I love recipes like this on hot summer days when eating warm food just does't feel so appealing. Play around with the herbs and use what's fresh in the garden. Chives, mint, or oregano will work great alongside the sweet peas and onions.
