Kohlrabi, Carrot, and Jalapeno Fritters

Kohlrabi, Carrot, and Jalapeño Fritters

Ever heard of kohlrabi?

It’s an annual vegetable that you may see at your local farmer’s market or receive in your CSA.

It looks weird. Really weird. Which is why I’d never tried it until I involuntarily received it in my weekly CSA share.

Kohlrabi is weird. But also awesome.

*Sigh* I knew this day was coming. Actually, that’s one of the reasons I signed up for a CSA – to try new things. And I have a food blog, so I must like experimenting in the kitchen to some extent. Prepared with a recipe idea and positive thinking, I ended up with these tasty Kohlrabi, Carrot, & Jalapeño Fritters. Success!

Honey-Sweetened Basil Lemonade

Summer is the season of lemonade. And basil. And basil lemonade!

I have to admit, I didn’t really get why people love lemonade in the summer until this year. It’s just never been my thing. But last year, my mom gave me a huge stack of old cooking magazines, and when leafing through them for recipe inspiration I saw a recipe for basil lemonade. How amazing does that sound? Basically, you take two amazing components of a foodie’s summer and smash them together into a refreshing and delicious beverage. And who doesn’t like smashing things?

I made this recipe for my (somewhat) recent cooking demo at Natural Grocers in Fargo, and I’ve finally honed the recipe and photographed it. Hooray!

Dry-Rubbed Crockpot Pulled Pork

I’ve been meaning to post a crockpot pulled pork recipe for a long time. I probably could have posted one waaaaaay back when I first started this blog…but the problem is, I tend to make up my dry-rub mix on the fly and never write it down.

Even when I did write it down, I didn’t know how to take a pretty picture of pulled pork. Not with my phone camera, anyway.

Well, things change. Now, I have a DSLR. And even though pulled pork wasn’t on my “recipe ideas” list…

I made pulled pork for a big housewarming taco party (along with 2 other kinds of meat), I wrote down the recipe as I made it, and I got rave reviews and compliments on the pork. My partner’s dad has asked me to make it again every time I’ve seen him since.

Crazy Easy Pan-Fried Plantain Patties

Confession: I’ve been a little plantain-crazy lately.

I eat them all the time. And it’s no wonder – they taste amazing and they’re easy to prepare…particularly when you have a crazy easy recipe like these plantain patties.

It takes mere minutes to prep and fry up some plantain patties, and I guarantee you they make an excellent addition to almost any meal. Except – maybe – pizza.
