Karela (Bitter melon)

I’m all for trying new things. My philosophy is that I will try (eating) anything once, and I have discovered some delicious food over the years that I might have missed if I were less adventurous: raw quail eggs, goat curry, fried pickles, and kombucha,

Tomatofest

When we bought our house and had the backyard landscaped, we included a raised vegetable bed so that we could grow some veggies and also have some outdoor seating. The first thing we grew was tomatoes. When H was two, she refused to eat tomatoes;

Sweet Potatoes: Not Just a Super Food

My kids love sweet potatoes. I mean, they really, really love them. They would eat them multiple times a day, every day (but as a fan of variety, I limit their intake to about one a day).  I always have several varieties of this terrific

Asparagus Bacon Frittata

I really like eggs. And I really like bacon. And I really like asparagus. Presto! A breakfast that combines them all! This morning I was making bacon for the kiddos, and I had some asparagus in the fridge that needed eating, plus some sliced onions and

Wax Beans

I never met a wax bean I didn’t like. What’s not to like? They are similar in taste and texture to green beans, but have a lovely yellow color and are slightly sweeter. Whenever I see these at the farmer’s market, I have to buy some,
