In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a fun, no-frills way to do something different with potatoes and cabbage to serve with (or without) your corned beef.  And it won’t even stink up your house!  This Lucky Hash utilizes fresh, local kohlrabi and rutabaga from Le Tre Lune.  Farmers Lauren and Luca can always […]

The smells of pot roast are taunting me.  And they will continue to do so for the next four hours!!!!!  Upon request, I wanted to share the straight-up recipe for said pot roast.  There are tons of variations that could be made- coating the meat in flour before searing, fancying-up the seasoning, adding bay leaves, […]

I don’t know the origin of the expression, “Mind your own beeswax,” but that’s exactly what I’ve been doing lately.  Minding my beeswax, er business.  The Universe has sort of forced me to.  It’s easy for me to pour myself fully into the operational side of Plan to Plate, searching for creative ways to utilize […]

Yesterday, my tiny town of Decatur, Georgia was flooded with love and admiration.  Yes, it was Valentine’s Day, and plenty of people donned red outfits and bought balloons, flowers, and chocolates for their sweethearts.  But there was a lit-tle something else brewing in our progressive community that caused many folks to wear blue. President Barack […]

Well, helllloooo, February!  So far, you are just as confusing weather-wise as January was.  Some days are sunny and 70 degrees, and then I find myself wrapped up in blankets, wearing my snuggly winter hat.  It’s no wonder that the flu and various strains of colds have been going round and round.  What this translates […]

Hot Damn!  I’ve got a surprise day off, and my body is thankful!  You know, I’m not as young as I used to be, and cooking multiple meals for several families on the same day is a pretty intense workout.  Sometimes, I create three soups in one cooking spree, and I’m at a point where […]

That’s right, people.  Bouncing back is just what I am doing today.  From what, you ask?  From several punches in the gut, courtesy of January 2013. 1.  I’ve been sick this week.  My nose was stuffed and running at the same time.  My ears, clogged.  And my brain, foggy.  I self-medicated with loads of soup, […]

Happy 2013, Y’all!  This millennium is no longer a tween, it has officially entered its teenage years.  And, since I last wrote, I have entered my late thirties.  Aaaahhhhh!  So bizarre!  But true.  I hope that your holiday season was full of joy and love.  Ours sure was.  December was packed with celebrations.  Hanukkah came […]

Any dish that involves vegetables floating in a pool of cheese makes me excited.  And I’ve been trying to find time to share this Cauliflower and Kale Au Gratin with you for weeks now. In years past, the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas have been slow for me and Plan to Plate.  Since I typically […]

It’s Thanksgiving week!!!!!!!!!!  As you can probably guess, this is my very favorite holiday of the year.  It’s all about family, friends, food, and expressing gratitude.  My cup of tea.  Traditionally, we feast on turkey and a multitude of seasonal veggies.  And starch, starch, and more starch.  Of course, there must be rolls, stuffing, mashed […]
