Summer Recipes by Love and Lemons

A Plant-Based Diet We agree with food writer Michael Pollan when he said, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” While most folks think of summer as the time for grilling meat, we’re pretty jazzed on the abundance of warm-weather veggies currently coming out of our farmers’ fields. To highlight these seasonal offerings, we’ve compiled a […]

Featured Recipe :: Apple, Carrot, Sweet Potato and Ginger Soup

We’re advocates of eating seasonally, but when this warm weather lingers as it has recently, it’s easy to forget just what season we’re in!   Despite Mother Nature’s recent mixed signals, the veggies and fruits available to us right now are still in the ‘cold weather’ category.  These include stored “seasonal” crops – grown within the […]

Featured Recipe :: Curried Pumpkin & Butternut Squash Soup

Soup weather has arrived! True, the forecast has it back to 81 by the end of the week, but right now we are enjoying (well, some of us) this cold, crisp winter-like day.

How To Roast Pie Pumpkins

Pumpkin is a quintessential fall ingredient. And, if you’re like a lot of people, when a recipe calls for pumpkin you go straight to the canned stuff. And while there are a lot of good brands of canned pumpkin out there, we are fans of roasting our own.  Home roasted pumpkins are fresher and have […]

Daily Recipe :: Apple and Cheddar Scones

Fellow Texans, remember how this past weekend a cold front moved in and for a few days it actually felt like fall? We got to pull out our light sweaters and open up the windows to let in the cool breeze. True, it’s back up into the mid-90s, but that weather was so inspiring, we […]

more

Daily Recipe :: Curried Butternut Squash, Carrot & Coconut Soup

Today feels like fall. True, it’s still in the 90s in Austin, but if you’re inside with the air conditioning on, you can look out your window and pretend the air is cold. It’s a blessing and a curse to live in a warm and sunny climate. We get to brag about our 70 degree […]

Daily Recipe:: Roasted Peach and Coconut Popsicles

Daily Recipe :: Homemade Sea Salt & Vinegar Chips

Summer is for backyard BBQs, living in your swimsuit and using every available opportunity to get yourself into a body of water (at least in Texas, where we go months on end in stifling heat.) We love spending love evenings with friends over good food, especially when you can take an unhealthy classic and turn […]

Daily Recipe :: Eggplant & Basil Pizza with Cornmeal Crust

Eggplant is a vegetable that gets skipped over in the grocery store. It’s not a veggie you can pluck off the shelf and eat raw (well, you can… but it’s not that tasty), and if you don’t have a dish in mind, it’s hard to know what to do with it. We think it deserves […]

more

Daily Recipe :: Quick Basil Pickles

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a pickle on a hot summer day. While it’s always nice to have a good jar of pickles in the fridge (did someone say Pogue Mahone??), it’s also nice to have some homemade pickles to munch on. Although the entire process of canning can be daunting, it’s worth it. […]

Daily Recipe :: Summer Tomato Lentils

We have an abundance of cherry tomatoes in the store. Not only do we have a lot, we have them on sale this week. What we’re trying to say is, there isn’t any reason you shouldn’t drop everything and come buy a few handfuls (or a few pounds) of them. If you have them by […]

more

Daily Recipe :: Gazpacho

The idea of cold soup can seem somewhat bizarre, then you try it and you know what the hype is all about. Summer has hit Texas, and the thought of cooking warm soup when the weather is in the upper 90s makes us feel a little bit queasy, so gazpacho is the perfect solution. Gazpacho […]

Daily Recipe :: Strawberries & Cream

Happy National Strawberries and Cream Day! Yep, that’s a thing. Turns out almost everyday is some sort of national food holiday, which is delightful.

Daily Recipe :: Peach & Strawberry Popsicles

We just got in some local peaches, the first of the season.  The joy of eating your first local peach is some sort of magic.
