Oyster Mushroom Recipe – With Sage and Garlic

Oyster Mushroom Recipe – With Sage and Garlic

Oyster Mushroom Recipe Oyster mushrooms are one of the first mushrooms we pick. Steve can spot them 15 feet up a birch tree when he’s driving 50 mph down Route 6. I’m not that good. I’m usually too busy bobble-heading for wildlife and anything else I can find. I forget about the mushrooms. Such is life. I’m better at finding them when I’m on foot, and then I bring home enough to make this oyster mushroom recipe. Fresh mushrooms, butter,…

Coleslaw Recipe – How to Change Up the Basic Recipe

Coleslaw Recipe – How to Change Up the Basic Recipe

Coleslaw Recipe What’s a picnic without coleslaw! I think of this coleslaw recipe in the spring and summer, and then again in the fall and winter. This really is an all-season side dish that suits a lot of meals. This spring we’re packing this in the cooler to take with us when we’re picnicking on the bank of a stream we’ve been fly fishing, and while we’re scouting for turkeys as the season is about to open. It’s always a…

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing My all-time favorite dressing is Bacon & Blue Cheese. We use it as a salad dressing, with wings, and even on burgers and steak. This is another recipe that’s easy to adjust to your tastes. One cup each of blue cheese and bacon crumbles makes a chunky, thick dressing. Blue cheese can be quite tangy, especially if it’s aged so adjust the strength of the blue cheese flavor by adding a smaller amount. Add more…

Mac n Cheddar Cheese

Mac n Cheddar Cheese

Mac n Cheddar Cheese Baked Mac n Cheddar Cheese is a favorite for lots of us. I never tire of it. This is nothing like the bright orange powdered cheese mac that comes in a box. I used Clothbound Chedder from Grace Hill Farm in Cummington, MA. I found the cheese at Boston Public Market on a weekend trip with Taylor to visit Kristin. You should use your favorite cheddar. Or, use Gouda. If a cheese melts well and you…

Potato Pancakes Recipe – Thanksgiving Leftovers

Potato Pancakes Recipe – Thanksgiving Leftovers

Potato Pancakes I’ve adjusted the ingredient measurements for these Thanksgiving leftovers recipes. They’re a little more solid than the recipes I gave in this week’s On The Fire on air – but there’s still a lot of wiggle room. The moisture content in your mashed potatoes will determine whether or not you need to use an extra egg or add all-purpose flour in your potato pancakes mix. You’ll find another Thanksgiving leftovers recipe in Squash Soup. Thanksgiving leftovers are one…

Garden Fresh Salsa – Garden to Plate in an Hour

Garden Fresh Salsa – Garden to Plate in an Hour

Garden Fresh Salsa I’m in the kitchen with Taylor this week while we use the seemingly endless supply of tomatoes and hot peppers. We’re using a variety of tomatoes – a plum-shaped volunteer, Luci (round, 6 oz), Juliet, Cherokee Purple and Bobcat, to make garden fresh salsa. The Bell peppers are a big, thick-walled variety called King of the North from Fedco. German Extra Hardy garlic did very well this year but I had to water it often to keep…
