Some of the happenings this week…

 

Forgotten Fruits

  As I started planning my garden this year, it occurred to me just how few varieties are available in this city anymore.I thought about some of the fruits that I grew up eating as a child, fruits that flavored my youth but don’t seem to be around much these days for...

Augusta Eats Local at Seeds Cafe

  SEEDS CAFE NURTURES FOOD SUSTAINABILITY “Grits Pie?” You may ask. “Sounds kind of gritty.” Not so! At least not Seeds Café’s Sweet Grits Pie, which is smooth as silk. Owner LaRahna Hughes sources the grits locally and works her magic like she does with every recipe...

Shredded Collard Green Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

So sorry to have been MIA the past couple of weeks, but sometimes life gets in the way…I am happy to report that my back is on the mend and while not completely normal, I am once again mobile.  With our weather in transition, I thought this was the perfect time to introduce a transitional recipe.  We are still seeing plenty of collard greens and sweet potatoes at the market, but who says we cannot make a lighter feeling dish with them while we wait for the spring veggies to come in.  This salad uses some tried and true southern ingredients with some West African flavors.  That feels new to me!  It also uses the massaging technique (you might have seen or used this with kale) to tenderize the winter greens without cooking.  Make sure that you do not skip this step or your mouth might get quite the workout. 😉  If lime and cashew are not your thing, this is an easily modified recipe so choose the flavors that you like best.  Happy almost spring!

Slow-Roasted Beef

Well, as you can probably tell by the tardiness of my post, my back is not back to normal.  It is better, but standing at the stove and cooking for a long time is just not happening.  I made this recipe last week, using a roast that I had in the freezer from a few months ago.  I was really pleased with how it turned out.  Even though it was an inexpensive cut, the meat was tender and juicy.  The first night we just had it sliced with a side of roasted vegetables, but since then, I have been using it to make sandwiches and boy are they yummy.  So, if you are like me and mobil-y challenged at the moment or would just like an easy recipe that produces a good meal and leftovers, this is definitely for you.

My mom is my inspiration. She taught us girls to feed the soil with every natural resource that came her way. It would be decades before I appreciated her genius. It applies to everything, from food to kids to community. Love you Mama!
