Up here in Northern New Hampshire, we're headed into prime blueberry season! Both highbush and wild blueberries are excellent choices. Highbush berries are larger (typically marble-size or even bigger!) and grow on taller bushes that can be harvested while standing. Wild blueberries are smaller, sometimes sweeter and grow low to the ground. These are often harvested using a blueberry rake. If you have a pick-your-own area nea...

Whether you're headed to a BBQ, a potluck supper, a picnic or any summer gathering, you can count on potato salad among the offerings. There are as many variations as there are people who make it.

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!
