Fresh Produce Tuesday- Corn Recipes

One of my favorite summer memories from growing up is sitting on our back deck shucking bags of corn.  We have finally started to get corn in our CSA and I have been looking for different ways to serve it up.  The standard in our house is of course good old corn on the cob, but there are many other types of corn recipes out there.

Fresh Produce Tuesday: Beet Recipes

I can’t really say that I love beets, but we get them in our CSA about every other week so I am learning to embrace them.  I was able to find lots of beet recipes this week that I would like to try with our next batch of beets.  One recipe I did make a few weeks ago that I loved was beet chips (recipe below.)  I received a food processor as a wedding gift and never took out all the attachments to see what they did.  Turns out, it has an awesome mandoline attachment that thinly slices things up in less than a second.  Did I mention it is our five year wedding anniversary this week?  I could have used this so many times over the last five years!  Lesson learned- always read your small appliance manuals so you learn about all the extra functionality they might have.

Fresh Produce Tuesday- Heirloom Tomato Recipes

 

It’s finally time for my favorite type of summer produce: heirloom tomatoes!  There are so many heirloom tomato recipes, but sometimes I just love to eat them plain with a little dash of kosher salt.  These heirloom tomatoes in the above picture were from our last CSA box.  Since I was out of town for BlogHer ’12, we had our CSA delivered a few days early.  Here’s my weekly instagram of the CSA crops:

And because I love to show my photo bloopers, here are some of Baby T assisting with the shoot:

Fresh Produce Tuesday: Zucchini Recipes

Zucchini is one summer vegetable that I love in the beginning of the season and start to dread by the end.  I usually end up brushing the zucchini with a little olive oil, sprinkling it with a little S&P, and throwing it on the side of the grill to enjoy with whatever else we’re having.  However, after pulling together this zucchini recipe compilation, I’m definitely looking forward to trying a few new ways of cooking up zucchini. So whether you are trying to use up a bumper crop of zucchini from your own garden or some you picked up at an urban farmers market, here are some new zucchini recipes to try.

Fresh Produce Tuesday: Raspberry Recipes

10+ Raspberry Recipe Ideas

With all of the fresh raspberries available at local farmers markets, I wanted to feature a number of raspberry recipes this week.  Raspberries are one of baby T’s favorite foods as evidenced in this photo below.  I can’t believe how quickly they disappear from his high chair tray sometimes!  Our new house has some wild raspberry bushes around the perimeter, but I have only been able to pick a few at a time…our critter friends get the rest.

No raspberries in our CSA this weekend, but lot’s of other goodies!  Here’s my weekly Instagram photo of our pick-up:

One of my favorite desserts to make is this Chocolate-Rasberry Tart from Martha Stewart Everyday Food, May 2010.  It’s really easy to pull together and the raspberry chocolate combination is perfect!

Fresh Produce Tuesday – Swiss Chard Recipes

Swiss Chard Recipes

Fresh Produce Tuesday is finally back this week with some great swiss chard recipes!  I apologize for the 2 week hiatus, but I needed a little blogging break and am now feeling quite reinvigorated.  My local CSA had it’s first pick-up last Saturday…I was so excited to pick it up.  Here’s an instagram I took of my first bounty (on a side note, you can follow us on Instagram under the username 2sisters2cities!)

There was no swiss chard in this week’s pick-up, but there was some Red Russian kale, a variety that I had never tried before.  I actually took the above photo of the swiss chard a few weeks ago.  I used it to make a simple recipe of penne pasta, italian sausage, swiss chard, and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.  Here are 10 more swiss chard recipes I have found that look really good:

Fresh Produce Tuesday- Week #13: Carrot Recipes


I thought this week might be challenging to find a lot of different carrot recipes, but I definitely underestimated how many ways one can eat carrots.  Although carrots can be found year-round in supermarkets, it’s always interesting to try out the various varieties and colors of carrots available from local farms.  If you open yet another CSA box full of carrots and think “les carottes sont cuites” (translation: the carrots are cooked, meaning: you’re done for), here are 10 carrot recipes to get culinary inspiration.

Kale is a vegetable that I have come to embrace in the summer over the past few years.  It’s extremely nutritious and a great addition to so many recipes.  I love to steam or sauté some up and add it to pasta dishes, but I’m really looking forward to making kale chips later this week!  Here are 10 kale recipes that sound amazing:

Fresh Produce Tuesday- Week #11: Strawberry Recipes

For this week’s Fresh Produce Tuesday series, we are featuring  many amazing strawberry recipes.  Strawberries are my all-time favorite fruit.  I enjoy them almost year-round, but the most delicious ones are the fresh, local strawberries found every June from local farms.  I love that strawberries are so versatile- I enjoy them in a smoothie or with Greek yogurt in the morning, with a spinach salad for dinner,  in a sweet dessert, or I just pop them in my mouth just as they are.

I’ve been noticing fresh spring produce is abundant lately at the farmer’s markets.  Here are  recipe ideas for AsparagusArtichokesSpring OnionsPeasGarlic Scapes & Spring GarlicRhubarbFava BeansRadishesLettuce, and Morels in case you missed any of the previous weeks of our series.

I made this strawberry shortcake recipe a few weeks ago and loved how it turned out.  I was a little shocked how much heavy cream was used in the shortcake base alone, but it created a perfectly tasting cake to douse with strawberries and whipped cream.

Here are 9 additional strawberry recipes that I love:

Here’s your chance to link up you favorite strawberry recipe.   It would be great if you could link back to 2 Sisters 2 Cities or add our button to your strawberry  post (our button can be found on the top of the right-hand column), but it is not required.  Readers, please “like” the recipes below that you like the best!
