The Vegetable Garden, my POTAGER…is a dream come true. I wanted to go into the garden and bring in fresh organic vegetables, the best varieties of course, and turn them into delightful & healthy meals.
Although I am a fairly accomplished cook, I get overwhelmed when the harvest starts coming in. Time and again I turn to Julieta Cadenas’ blog LINDARAXA to find recipes to inspire me.
I am excited and honored to be teaming up with her. As the harvest comes in we will link to each others blog and, she will create recipes for all of us to enjoy.
Julieta is one knowledgeable lady, a former investment banker, lifelong food aficionado, great cook and a delightful & generous friend. Check out her blog, she writes about more than cooking.
So, as soon as I saw these in the garden…
I immediately went to LINDARAXA for inspiration. Soon my kitchen will be overrun with squash. and I want to be prepared.
Last year, for winter use, I roasted and froze some squash. This year I’ll do the same. They were wonderful ! I used them with scrambled eggs, I added them to a saute of onion garlic, red pepper, and some artichokes & served with pasta. But I need to ‘do’ something NEW, and as usual Julieta has some inspiring dishes. Here is Julieta’s Squash casserole .
Enjoy, my husband can’t wait for the squash to come in! Once again Julieta, thank you. You STAR in my kitchen!
When my daughter sees these photos she’s going to die! Last year we grew tomatoes and zucchini and were so overwhelmed she decided enough was enough. No potager this year. I, on the other hand can’t do without my herbs and they are growing happpily in pots on my deck. Just last night I had to cut back the basil and cilantro and start freezing some in ice trays.
I am really excited about this and can’t wait for the tomatoes to come in. Do I have tomato recipes!
Thanks for highlighting my blog and for all the nice comments.
Priceless. I know what a cook you are. Will follow any cooking link you give. Landscape design too.
Awesome! I love recipe blogs. Looking forward to the squash recipes!!
