Coonamessett Farm: Choosing the Right CSA

Joining a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an easy way to get the freshest local food around while also supporting local farmers. These CSA’s usually involve payment upfront for an allotted amount of time where you will receive weekly farm “shares”. Farm shares are crates of fabulously fresh produce either delivered to your door or offered at pick-up locations. There are options for meat, cheese, egg, or fish too; it all depends on what farm you choose and what you sign up for.

Fish Baked with Dijon Dill Pretzel Crust

A simple Scandinavian dish with mild flavors. This pairs nicely with some roasted turnips and radishes. The roasting process will tame those bitter tones of these roots and leave you with a juicy, peppery side dish. The fish works great as a left over for breakfast too; just add a poached egg on top!

Easy kabobs marinated in a peppery, sweet marinade with fresh Italian herbs.

Chicken and Summer Squash Skewers

When the summer season comes along, the last thing I want to do is come home from work and spend the extra daylight indoors, over a stove in my hot kitchen. It pleases me greatly to have something already prepared that can I just throw on the grill.

These handfuls of buttery, baked clam stuffing are a regular menu item in Cape Cod, everyone’s recipe varying in sweetness and spice.

Stuffed Quahogs

This recipe has competed in a local Cape Cod contest at the Quahog Republic in Falmouth twice, and reigned champion both times! I keep my recipe spicy with two kinds of Portuguese sausage, sweet with ritz crackers instead of bread, and tangy with dijon mustard.

Caesar Salad with Seared Scallops

How to perfect the ordinary.

Caesar Salad with Seared Scallops

I love a caesar salad. But if I’m going to make one, I’m going to savor all of the simplicities of it. Call it casual decadence, but I’d rather take the extra 20 minutes to make homemade dressing, to crisp up some fresh croutons, to trim the lettuce just right, and to grate cheese three ways. Yes, I will grate parmesan three ways for the perfect caesar. One, I’m going to put freshly ground cheese into the fresh dressing. Two, I want the salty crunch of those oven-baked cheese crisps. And three, those crisps are never enough, because I just eat those straight away, so I also shave some cheese for the actual salad.

Lobster Tacos with Avocado Baja Sauce

It’s devilishly pleasing to use something as fancy as lobster meat in a common comfort food, but the real pleasure in this dish is the baja sauce. The mild spice and tang is the perfect sidekick to a delicately tasting food you’re trying to highlight.

Crystal Brook Farm & Goat Cheese

If you want to see baby goats frolic through a field and learn how goat cheese is made, this is the place. The owner, Ann Starband, is a truly knowledgeable guide and can explain in detail each part of the process. Looking back at the visit a few friends and I made recently, I wish I had listened more; we spent most of the time enamored with all the goats!
