I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Dragging out Summer’s Bounty

Summer is quickly ending…Sadness. In an effort to drag it out as long as possible I decided to harvest carrots from my garden. Turns out they are a heirloom variety and a gorgeous mixture of colors.

Some were monsters not suitable for eating. Even Aeisha was interested.

I whipped up this very tasty farmhouse carrot dish courtesy of Sprouted Kitchen.

Delicious. Turkey, cranberry, and brie burgers also via a recipe from the Sprouted Kitchen blog.

Also quite tasty.

The meal was a complete success (as was the wine). It was fun to have my family over and experiment with new recipes to step outside my cooking comfort level (baby steps right?).
