Since we started contributing for baskets, I can count on 1 hand the number of times I have used frozen vegetables while cooking. There is no need anymore! I have this beautiful bounty on a weekly basis. I love the difference it is making for my family, I feel better about the food we are eating, it is better for our health and I feel like I am making a difference in my family’s future. (more…)

Hi, I’m Jessica H. This is my first blog post.
I had a baby two months ago, so when asked what I wanted bring to Thanksgiving dinner, feeling unable to tackle the rolls as I have for several years, I offered to do something a bit easier–Green Bean Casserole. But in true me fashion, I couldn’t take the easy way out. (more…)
I have been craving Three bean salad. Not the soggy, over-sauced, over-sugared stuff from the grocery store but the slightly crisp, perfectly balanced flavors of tangy and sweet that my Grandma-In-Law creates every year. In my mind there is nothing better than sliding up to a worn wooden picnic table lined with plates of freshly fried chicken, home-style potatoes, and fabulous Three Bean Salad (generally with Texas Sheet Cake for dessert). The smells, sites, and sounds of her fresh garden, apple and cherry trees, and chickens and cows, make these meals an experience for all the senses. One bite of a decent Three Bean Salad and I am transported back to the dairy farm where my family has spent every summer for 14 years.
I'm going basic with this because I know there are people who have never cooked green beans from scratch! If you are a little scared of the fresh green beans this is for you!
I am so in love with one pan meals!
