Domestifluff - Food.Craft.Etc


  • I'm Kristen, a clumsy but determined home cook and crafter living in the Boston area with my husband, B, and I have an interest in all things food and craft.

    This blog was created to keep track of my various projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity.

CSA Peaches Blueberries Raspberries

Fruit time, that is. In addition to offering summer produce shares, our CSA also offers fruit shares, and B and I are all about the fruit. Thanks to favorable weather conditions (I knew that the ridiculously hot weather had to be good for something), our fruit share started a week early. Yay!

This past week, we received peaches, blueberries, and raspberries, in addition to our produce share, which contained chard, zucchini, plenty of cucumbers, scallions that had the longest green parts (that’s the technical term, right?) I’ve ever seen, wax beans, carrots, jalapeno peppers (!), and a couple of things that I know I’m forgetting right now. See, this is why I need to get right on these posts after I pick up the box on Friday. Otherwise, there’s too much good stuff for me to remember!

Farmer Dave CSA Week 6

This past week’s CSA box held some sweet surprises, including three ears of sweet corn (a real treat since I don’t usually get corn this fresh unless I visit my family in Pennsylvania during the summer), a bunch of carrots, and a big bag of wax beans, one of my favorite childhood veggies. We also received another kohlrabi bulb, a beautiful head of lettuce (romaine, I think), basil, and a pair of cipollini onions. Oh, and more zucchini and summer, squash, of course!

Farmer Dave's CSA Week 5

There were some fun food surprises in this past week’s CSA box, including green beans (the freshest I’ve seen in a long, long time), a huge bunch of rainbow chard (I’m becoming addicted to chard sauteed with a little olive oil, garlic, and onions), lots of basil, zucchini and summer squash (again, addiction-forming when sauteed with a little olive oil and garlic), and kohlrabi (the alien-looking purple bulb above). It’s been a yummy week (lots of sauteeing with olive oil, garlic/onions going on around here), and I think that this may be the first week that we’ve finished everything that we got in our box before the next pickup!

Farmer Dave's CSA Week Four

My CSA box this past week was the heaviest yet, and it was filled with chard, lettuce, a big bag of peas, the most adorable baby cucumbers that I think I’ve ever seen (it was really hard to cut them up because they were just so darn chubby and cute!), a few types of summer squash / zucchini, a small bulb of fennel, lovely scallions, and a little bunch of garlic scapes. I love this farm share thing! It’s like a surprise food adventure every week. What will the next week bring, I wonder?

Gluten and Sugar Free Chocolate Beet Cake

It was the night before my first ever CSA pickup, and it felt like Christmas Eve. What great produce was I going to find in my share? What was I going to make with it? Ooh, the sheer excitement of it all!

Farmer Dave's CSA, Week 3

The holiday week threw me off a little, but I wanted to post about last week’s CSA before I pick up my new share tomorrow. As the season progresses, more color is popping up in my CSA box, and last week’s was great! Beautiful rainbow chard made an appearance, as did a big bunch of radishes and chives, the latter of which I used in my July 4th potato salad. Mmm…good. A second bunch of garlic scapes (I’m a lucky girl!), a big head of bok choy, two kousa squash, and some cippollini onions, which I caramelized as a topping for burgers, were also packed into the color-filled box. Can’t wait to see what I get tomorrow!
