BBQ Time @Refinery29: Apple BBQ Sauce

Northern Indiana just had the coldest July on record. Seriously. When I woke up yesterday, it was 50 degrees. Right now? 54…AT THE END OF JULY. Within the next ten days, we “might” reach 82. What happened to the hot Midwestern summers that I lovingly remember? July and August used to be the hottest months…

Tired of Pickling? Try Candied Jalapenos!

Preserve The Herb: Basil Garlic Scape Pesto

The Fun of Pesto I love growing herbs. When planting season comes around, I can’t wait to pull out my terra cotta pots and fill them with contrasting green plants. Even more exciting is knowing our food will be full of fresh flavor without having to purchase expensive, sad looking herbs at the grocery store….

Winning Recipe: Springtime Asparagus Mac & Cheese

Asparagus Season Back in March, I attended the Chicago Good Food Fest where I met some representatives from the Midwest-local Ludwig Farmstead Creamery out of Illinois. After chatting for a bit and tasting their products, I noticed they were offering a cooking contest that had to include one of their cheeses. So…yeah… I pretty much…
