Potato Fajitas

This is one of those 'I have too many CSA items and don't know what to do with it all' posts. Not to mention, my sister, who lives in Kansas, just told me that she is hosting a Mexican food party this weekend & I am super-jealous so, that is how this dinner was born. Luckily, fajitas are one of the easiest - and most delicious - ways to use up a ton of produce (if you have zucchini, squash, or any other hearty produce, toss those in too!). The recipe below was used to feed two hungry folks. Enjoy!

Roasted Garlic Deviled Eggs

It's that time of year again: Deviled Egg Pageant! I know you've all been on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what I'd make for this year's competition. If you remember, last year I totally won for my dill & stone ground mustard deviled eggs. This year, I decided to move toward something a little different: roasted garlic deviled eggs.

I didn't win my entered category, but I did get an honorable mention for eggs "Just Like Grandma Used to Make." Now that's a compliment. This recipe uses a dozen eggs (so the yield is 24 deviled eggs), so be sure to adjust for the amount that you want to make.

Homemade Trade: Vegan Kimchi

Kimchi is a staple in Korean food, and is totally worth making yourself because you can control the flavor. Essentially, you just need cabbage and patience. I made this kimchi for the homemade trade club (last time I made coconut almond granola, remember?). This version is completely vegan, meaning, unlike a lot of Korean-imported kimchi, it doesn't use fish sauce. My recipe is based on this helpful recipe from Greatist, and makes 24 ounces of kimchi (I split it up into six 4-ounce containers). I look forward to eating this as a side dish or snack, as they do in Korea, or even in a grilled cheese, or a quesadilla, which sounds crazy/delicious. Enjoy!

Cinnamon French Toast

Reasons that I'm writing this post: (1) French toast is delicious. (2) I made some beautiful-looking French toast this weekend and took photos of it. (3) I wanted to post something this week and it looks like French toast is it.

So, you may not need a French toast recipe, but if you ever find yourself with amnesia, or teaching a toddler to cook (Is that the age that people let kids around a skillet? Just kidding -- kind of), then I got you covered. This recipe feeds two.

Leftovers Club: Overnight Oats

Overnight oats have become increasingly interesting to me. I decided to throw some together and send them off for my Leftovers Club post this month. You can essentially add anything to your overnight oats, but because I was sending it out, I couldn't put in any fruit (or anything that couldn't ship, for that matter). Not to fear: I made chocolate, coconut & almond overnight oats! This recipe makes one serving (and was inspired by this post).
