Ginger Carrots and Turnips

It's hard to believe that I went from never having a turnip before to having them three weeks in a row in our CSA share!  After trying creamed greens and then simply grilling the turnips last week, I thought it would be good to do something different this time.  So I combined them with some … Continue reading Ginger Carrots and Turnips

Lime Curry Sirloin Steaks

St. Helens.  That has absolutely nothing to do with this recipe whatsoever, but just thought I would share 🙂 Here in the Pacific NW it is a big deal to ask, "where were you when the mountain blew?"  Well, according to my mom, I was in … Continue reading Brazilian Chicken Curry
