Sweet Potato Bisque with Bleu Cheese Croutons

Hi. Make this. That's right guys, I'm back with another recipe, sorry. I know, I know, there have been a lot of food posts lately, but give me a break.

Considering I have about a bizzillion jillion sweet potatoes, I was really happy to find this delicious recipe. There is a thin line between READ MORE

Last winter our good buddy Matt, gifted us the best homemade cheese accouterment READ MORE

CSA Recipe : Watermelon & Cucumber Salad

Hello budz! I know I keep saying I am 'so busy' all the time, but I promise I will shut up about it soon. Life will be more relaxed after this week is over, and then I promise that I will begin to chat about new Ikea catalogs, my bedroom tanker project and other crap like that. I hope you don't hate me for dumping a bunch of non-housy posts on you and being very slow to respond to your great comments (I will I swear it) but this last month has just been nuts! July has been full of birthdays, READ MORE
