This recipe jumped out at me from one of my favorite cookbooks- Dishing Up the Dirt by Andrea Bemis, a CSA farmer in Oregon. I love her book with it’s many seasonal recipes, and this one is top of the list! Peaches are just finishing up here, and whether you get them from a local farmer, or a Costco- it’s important to get them organic!!
With the zucchini from our garden beginning to EXPLODE, we are always looking for new and delicious recipes to incorporate one of our favorite vegetables.

These are one of Ryan’s favorite backcountry snacks, and if they are in the house we all love to eat them! We also love hemp seeds and have replace shredded coconut with hemp seeds to increase our plant proteins. These are rich cookies, and you really can’t eat too many at once, but they are soooo yummy you might try!
Dips are great ways to use vegetables for tasty treats. This beet butter is adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks, Dishing Up The Dirt with Andrea Bemis. Many times we find that we don't have all the ingredients so we improvise and substitute. We think our spin on it turned out great!
It's true, it can be hard to cook a good peice of wild game if you don't know how. I've eaten many a tough deer roast or steak after cooking for too long without adequate marinating or liquid. This spring however, Ryan began doing all our steaks, roasts, and thicker cuts of meat with a super tasty technique that keeps the juices in the meat and with a watchful eye- and doesn't over do it!
Our daughter Pailey loves making "fancy" drinks, and so we do lots of experiments. This last week it was pretty warm for the PNW, so it was perfect for making a spritzer. These drinks are wonderful with a sparkling water and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family! We also love adding herbs we grow, and even plants like Aloe that we have growing in our kitchen. Aloe is an amazing healing food, so make sure to learn more about it here!
