Parsnip Pudding Pie

Parsnip Pudding Pie

This pie is a twist on traditional pumpkin pie, utilizing the naturally sweet parsnip in place of pumpkin. Using a nut based crust, which I learned back in my raw food days, the flour is eliminated and adds a nice nutty flavor to the sweet and spice filled pumpkin pie. 

Fermented Cranberry Chutney

Fermented Cranberry Chutney

With a large prep list for Thanksgiving Day, I do my best to get a few things done earlier in the week so that the holiday can be a little less "busy". Make this fermented chutney a few days ahead of time and allow it to get nice and bubbly. 

Farmhouse Pot Roast

Farmhouse Pot Roast

Yesterday I woke with the first light and cool breeze sneaking it's way through the barely opened window. As per usual, I made my way downstairs, got a fire going, spun a Jackson Browne record, and started a pot of coffee. I knew it would be a busy day ahead so I went right into prep for lunch. 

Coconut Steamed Mussels

Coconut Steamed Mussels

I really can't get enough shellfish. Growing up, I would spend my summers devouring buckets of steamers and clams on half shell. Any preparation, I am pretty much a fan! Now older and living in Maine, I am still fascinated with the briny, soft textured offerings of the northern coastline.

Brussels Sprouts with Almonds, Apples & Bacon

Brussels Sprouts with Almonds, Apples & Bacon

One of my favorite vegetables to consume in the fall are brussels sprouts. Although they're seemingly just a tiny cabbage, they are a fun and versatile brassica to consume in large quantities while they last. I've been trying to grow them for years, but can't seem to get it down, so thankfully there are plenty of local farms around who get it right. 

Apple Molasses

Apple Molasses

Sugar is literally dropping off of dozens of trees here at Three Lily Farm. Well, maybe not really but this recipe has quickly led me to want to harvest, press, and reduce just about every apple I can pick or scrap off the earth. 

Delicata Rings

Throughout the years, the Butternut has stood the test of time, becoming one of my go-to winter squashes for various preparations. From simple roasted chunks, to silky purees paired with everything from lamb to wild mushrooms.

Berry~Nasturtium Kraut

Berry~Nasturtium Kraut

Today I prepare to teach a blueberry cooking class in Camden at Boynton-McKay. This class is a sort of celebration of one of my most favorite fruits, the wild blueberry. This evening I will share my favorite techniques for incorporating this antioxidant rich fruit into ones diet besides the obvious sweet preparations. 

Egg Week ~ Sunken Eggs

Egg Week ~ Sunken Eggs

Inspired by a friends version of "Pissed off Eggs", I whipped up this dish for Sunday brunch recently. Once your tomato sauce is prepared, you can have a meal on the table within 10-15 minutes. Play around with the added vegetables and use what's in season and in abundance around you. I look forward to making this dish in the summer when summer squash, eggplant, and fresh basil are in abundance.

Nettle Chimichurri

Nettle Chimichurri

This past weekend I had the opportunity to cook in a wood fired oven. The high temps inside the earthen oven cranked around 800°F and cooked flatbreads in a matter of minutes.
