Kale, Barley & Chickpea Soup

It's that time of year: kale season. If you're a CSA member, that's all that you've been getting in your share. It's all over the stores, the farmers markets, and now, in your slow cooker. This recipe is easy and makes about four servings. Enjoy!

Cucumber Sandwiches

I recently made these cucumber finger sandwiches for a friend's baby shower (hence the duck-shaped bread). This recipe is so simple that I'm not sure I even need to write it out, but they were such a hit that I wanted to share the love. These sandwiches are a great meatless addition to a party spread or even as an everyday lunch. This recipe makes about 12-20 sandwiches, depending on how you slice them.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Break out your slow cooker for this one. Low & slow is how I chose to make this black bean soup, for a few reasons, but the biggest being that I didn't want to have to watch the soup while I was watching Battlestar Galactica. I know, I know. This recipe makes about four servings & is perfect for the cooler temps that we've been experiencing lately. Enjoy!

Baked Brown Sugar Peaches

What a dessert this is! It's so sweet and delicious that you probably won't realize that it's only about 100 calories per peach. That means you can eat like, a million of them. This is the perfect end-of-summer dessert and I highly suggest you go pick up the last of the fresh peaches at your farmers market immediately to make this! This recipe serves one (adjust equally to serve more) and was originally found at The Kitchen is My Playground.
