Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

Fresh Picks From The Farmer's Market

There is nothing quite like seasonal fruits and vegetables and I make a point to buy as local and seasonal as possible. Curious about what is fresh at this moment? Fear not, help is on the way!  A few of my very favorite include...

Apples (Honeycrisp-please!)- have you been lucky enough to taste an apple fresh off the tree? Bite after bite of juicy goodness!

Brussels Sprouts- perfectly delectable when roasted with kosher salt and olive oil.

Chard- such a pretty way to eat your greens!

Celery Root- seriously ugly vegetable with seriously great taste!

Fig- luscious and lovely this fruit makes a fabulous dessert when drizzled with honey and paired with goat cheese.

We have an apple/pear orchard at my farm, so we get to enjoy that simple pleasure whenever we like! It's great (apples are done for the year, still have zillions of pears!).
