Tomato-Scape Pasta

It’s finally scape season…and I’ve been waiting for week.  I mean literally…WEEKS.  It may not sound long, but to me it feels like forever, and when I got to the farmer’s market this week and was literally surrounded by the scapes, I was in HEAVEN.  When I picked up 12 for a dollar, I was [...]

Carrot-Onion Au Gratin

Ingredients 1 bunch asparagus, bottoms removed and cut into thirds Approx [...]

To assemble my little piece de resistance [...]

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice
