Asparagus and White Bean Salad with Feta and Lemon Dressing

Served with crusty bread, this salad makes a terrific meal. White beans provide a delectable hearty tenderness, without overwhelming the delicate asparagus. Tangy feta, zesty lemon, and a touch of mint give this salad a bright and refreshing flavor.

Assertive Greens with Honey Mustard Sauce

America’s Test Kitchen cleaned, stemmed, and cooked over 100 pounds of leafy greens to come up with the best ways to cook both the tender, mild varieties of greens and the more “assertive” ones. They found that the amount of water used to blanch the greens really does matter, so take the time to measure it! Cooking time also matters — these greens do not need to be boiled for hours, the way old-timey cooks did it!

This newer method sounds much more time-consuming and involved than it really is in practice. The basic blanching method described here results in tender greens with good color and full flavor without bitterness. After draining them, they can be quickly cooked with whatever seasonings you desire. We’re particularly partial to this honey mustard version.

Assertive Greens with Onions or Shallots and Cream

A bit of background — all leafy greens are not interchangeable. Some are delicate enough for salads; others can be tough as shoe leather. In general, though, they fall into two categories, each of which is handled differently. Within each category, though, the type of green used is pretty much interchangeable. The “tender greens” (beet greens, Swiss chard, spinach) are delicate and moisture-rich. The “assertive greens” (kale, mustard, turnips, collards) are stronger in flavor, and require added liquid as they cook.
This is a great recipe for those more assertive greens. Technique is the key. The initial shallow blanching erases some of their bitterness without robbing them of their character. It preserves their color and flavor, saves time, and allows them to be cooked more quickly.Once the greens have been blanched and drained, they can be used in any number of tasty recipes. In this one, the sweetness of the onions and the richness of the cream mellow the bitterness of the greens.

Baby's Berry-Citrus Compote with Champagne Vinaigrette *NON-ALCOHOLIC!!!*

This is something I tossed together one morning whilst grazing through my fridge in search of … whatever, LOL!

Proper food precautions with honey and all that, don’t let your tiny toddlers steal this, just in case, or leave the honey out, and wash all fruits well, no matter the origin. Safety first!

Feel free to substitute seasonal berries! ;oD

Baked Rabbit

I have many memories of being served a variety of small, wild game at my grandparents’ house in Tennesse as a child. Yes, they were hillbillies! They grew, fished, and hunted most everything they ate. Rabbit was commonly served, usually fried or stewed. This was my first try at cooking it myself (thirty something years later) and was happily surprised at how well it turned out. I read several recipes online and came up with my own version of a baked recipe. Knowing how much love and care they put into their farm, I purchased this delicate and tasty rabbit from Broad River Pastures.

Baked Zucchini

A yummy way of fixing zucchini (or other summer squash) that concentrates the flavor and keeps the squash from being watery. It works with an oven meal, or on the grill or campfire. Bonus: No pan to wash!

Beef 'n' Brew Crockpot Vegetable Soup

This is a great soup to make when you’re expecting visitors. It can be assembled and started in the crockpot many hours before the party, leaving you free to do other things. Beer is a prominent ingredient in this hearty soup. If you want a lighter beer flavor, use a pale beer. Use a darker beer for a more pronounced beer taste. (Use home brew for real bragging rights!)
