One of the many challenges with our new schedule is trying to not make the same things over and over. There are several nights a week where I need to make a crock-pot meal OR prepare something in advance that can be reheated when we walk in late. This week we added Fridays to [...]
Cross another one off the bucket list! The kids and I took the plunge today and went to a blueberry farm to pick blueberries. Every year we order blueberries at a local farm, who in turn gets them from a farm in Michigan. We’ve never had better berries, and this year I ordered 50 [...]
I think we’re finally arriving. As the summer days have suddenly cooled off, the produce is suddenly rolling in. This past Friday, I actually was able to make our first batch of salsa for the year. The most incredible part of that? I needed to buy onions and cilantro. Every other ingredient came from [...]
The single easiest act of food preservation you could ever do is freeze your own blueberries. You know how you go to a farmstand or a Farmer’s Market and you see those big 10 pound boxes of blueberries, and you wonder how you’d ever manage to use them all?
Buy them. You’ll use them [...]
So for the next little while, I’ll probably be going through old photos I have taken over the last several months and sharing different recipes and such. Hopefully I’ll have some new stuff to share as well. After all, it’s summer and the growing season, and there’s always something new to discover. Why, just [...]
Well hello there my Internets! I’ve missed you. I’ve missed you terribly. I feel like a bad relative who ran away for a while and is tentatively trying to return things to normal. I’ve missed blogging a lot. I’m hoping that in the next weeks and months I can figure a good way out [...]
Here I was, all excited and proud of myself because I kicked off the month of February with a bang as far as posting frequency goes. And then the Super Bowl was over, and team Green Bay won Tomato Bowl 2011 by a landslide. Then, I had a week of eating up all those [...]
Happy 2011 to my friends and blog-readers! After rolling thoughts around in my head for a few days, I thought it was time to hop on, give a shout and say hey there. So here I am. Hey there.
As I look through the past year here on Tummy Treasure, I’m sorely disappointed with [...]
Have you ever bought, grown or eaten a patty-pan squash? We discovered them a few years ago, and enjoy them on and off. What I’ve always particularly liked about them is their size. They are small, so one small squash is the perfect amount to add to something when you want just a touch [...]
Every Saturday morning through mid-October, we have a super fabulous local farmer’s market in downtown Appleton. The whole market is local vendors- local producers and farmers and artisans, and I just love it. There are no wholesalers, no out-of-area produce, and every single vendor is so friendly and excited to talk about what they [...]
Every year, when the blueberries arrive, we end up with more and more berries. We’ve discovered we love having blueberries on hand. They store in the freezer with very little trouble- seriously. Have some blueberries? Put them in a freezer bag, zip it shut and label the bag. No washing, no prepping, no freezing [...]
With the recent boom of strawberries in our home, one thing that I decided I had to make this year with the bounty was Strawberry Shortcake. I know that Andy has always been a fan, and while my interest comes and goes, this year I was going to make them, because it just sounded [...]
