For some of you, it might be that time in the summer when you are wondering, what to do with all that Kale?  Kale is delicious, but it can sometimes be overwhelming to keep consuming all those leafy greens.  While I love making The Breakfast of Champions, it is nice to get some variety out of a vegetable so I decided to try something new.

For years my husband has told me about the sausage and kale soup his old roommate use to make.  When I tried to get more information from hubby to get an idea of the recipe, he told me it was cooked in a crock pot, had sausage, kale, and potatoes, and was amazing.  Since that was not enough to go on, I turned to the web and found this recipe for portuguese kale soup which I figured would do the trick.

This was definitely a nice change of pace for kale.  Cooking it in the form of soup changed the texture and flavor because it soaked up all the tasty broth.  Plus, it is always fun to have a veggie in a new recipe.

Do you ever open your fridge and say what should I do with all of these veggies?

Well a good fried rice is almost always the correct answer.  You can hide almost any vegetable in there and it is a great way to clear out anything extra you have lying around.

This is actually a dish my mother taught me to make as a child.  Back then the main ingredients consisted of frozen “stir fry vegetables” with some canned water chestnuts and dried crunchy lo mien noodles sprinkled on top.  It was delicious then and even better now with fresh ingredients.  There are many ways to whip up this dish but I try to make mine low on greasiness and high on flavor.

I loves me some pizza.  I started making homemade pizza as a kid on camping trips.  It was so fun warming it up over the camp fire and even the times I ate it when we did not have a fire to warm it on.  When I got a bit older, I brought the homemade pizza into the kitchen and my mom made me make it every time I came home from college.  Some times we get very fancy with homemade crust.  But I think I like it more when I eat it on pitas as if I was a kid again camping in the Northwoods.

Balsamic Blast

This salad is awesome, mostly because of the balsamic onions you see above.  The salad is very simple because it just involves sauteing onions in balsamic vinegar until the vinegar reduces.  Then toss in some chopped peppers just so they get a little heat.  Add this to lettuce and tomato and sprinkle with some mozzarella cheese.  Then enjoy this warm salad for dinner with some red wine.

Totally Tuna

I recently learned that you could add crasins to tuna.  This should not have been that shocking since I have been adding grapes to tuna for years, but it did shock me.  So I had to make it, which was perfect since we also had carrots, celery, green pepper, and onions from the CSA.  This tuna salad was awesome.  (more…)

Okay this salad is not that fat but it is tasty.  We have tons of lettuce from the CSA this time of year so we have to keep chowing down on salads.  This post is really for the dressing I made for the salad because how can you go wrong with ingredients for a greek salad.

We got lots of tomatoes from our CSA and the Italian herbs in our window garden were calling my name.  So I decided to make some awesome sauce with a little help from our delicious CSA beef.  The result was a hearty and filling dish. (more…)
