Recipe: Fall Harvest Chili
Yesterday’s CSA was a crazy pile-up of tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, onions, squash, and other bountiful fall veggies. Keeping with my rule of not throwing anything away, I made chili and roasted squash last night. Here’s my recipe for chili – I use organic whenever possible, and chicken instead of beef.

Creamy Cucumber-Avocado Soup
So being a member of a CSA is fun. But there’s a lot of pressure to use veggies that I don’t usually buy – in fact, there have been veggies in the pickup that I’ve never even heard of! I’m not complaining, though: so far so good.
Both last week AND this week, we got cucumbers. We eat salads nearly every day, but…let’s be…
Smooth Smoothie Recipe
Smoothies are a staple in my everyday summer diet. Whether for breakfast or a post-workout meal, I love how easy and brainless it is to put together a balanced meal: no muss, no fuss.
