Welcome to Week 54 of the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up!
large_post button
Next week I’m jet setting, like the suave son-of-a-B that I am, to England. John and I are going to visit his fandamly in Devon and let me tell you – I’m looking forward to it! His parents are right adorable and I need a vacay. Desperately. All I’m going to do is lay around, drink wine, read books on my oh-so-savvy e-reader (which by the way, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about) and relax-max! It’s going to be shepherd’s pie and warm beer city, population: ME!
….What is up with all the random word making up going on there? Who do I think I am anyway? Onto the link up!
This link up is to encourage fresh food production, consumption, activism, and awareness. Please feel free to link up posts containing:
  • CSA collections;
  • Farmer’s market treasures;
  • Home grown/raised hauls;
  • Recipes that feature fresh fruits and veggies that are seasonal to your area or feature local, sustainably farmed meats, eggs, and dairy;
  • DIY projects and tutorials for: gardening, storing and/or preserving fresh, real foods, composting market scraps, raising chickens in your back yard, small living, etc…
You may link up as many posts in a given week that you haven’t shared here before by using the linky tool at the bottom of this post. Please make an effort to click on any of the linked up posts and say hello by leaving a comment for your fellow fresh food communitarians and/or leave one here to tell us what you’ve shared – because it’s always nice to know someone thinks we’re doing a good job! And lastly, please include the button below or a simple text link back to this link up in the post(s) you share:



I want this blog hop to feature you as well as help each other come together to form a resource of good food ways for one another. The Fresh Foods Pinterest Board is now open to ALL of you! If you’d like to pin your posts to the communal board, just chuck me an email and I’ll add you to it! That way, more exposure for you and less administrative work for me! Horray!

As I’ve mentioned before, this link-up is to encourage fresh food production, consumption, activism, and awareness. We can do this together!

If you’re into really good food cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients, drinks with a little somethin’ somethin’ and enjoying what you put in your mouth, this book is for you.


Julia Child famously commented, "I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food . . . ” Kristy Gardner has taken this idea to the next level in Cooking with Cocktails. Every recipe is touched with alcohol; the result is a punchy visual adventure with roots in Italian and French cuisine that demands enjoying meals with passion, with friends, and with alcohol.


Join the celebration of the very best that life has to offer—good friends, good food, good drink and great stories —with humor, delicious and inventive recipes, and mouth-watering photographs for each and every dish!


Cook. Eat. Imbibe. Live. And repeat.

    Really, Devon in the fall sounds pretty good to me. I spent a week in England one fall doing some antiquing (we borrowed a giant-for-Germany truck and took the chunnel over) and if you’ve ever seen photos of my trug, it was purchased clear up in Nottingham. No photos of the sideboard and other pieces of furniture I’ve lugged all over the world. Eventually I’ll settle down.
    Today I’m linking up 3 recipes using local foods from my garden and CSA farm share. I’ve got a Shaved Kohlrabi pizza (plus other kohlrabi ideas), a Roasted Acorn and Butternut Squash with Corn dish, and a Massaged Kale Fried Rice.
    Eat some scones and clotted cream and jam for me. Like, lots of them. Please.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Have a great time. Hope you share pictures.

    I am so excited to link up today. I started a new series on my blog called Real Food ABCs. Starting with “A” I decided to highlight apple cider vinegar.

    Thanks for hosting!
