Braised Radishes


This is our second week of receiving radishes in our CSA box. The first time we received them, I roasted them. Josh liked them, I… tolerated them. The taste of radishes is tough for me, so I knew I needed to find a recipe that better disguised them.

I stumbled upon a recipe on the amazing Pinterest, for “Braised Radishes” and figured I’d give it a shot.

Oh my goodness, yum! This is definitely my favorite way to enjoy radishes now. The sauce was so good, that I put the leftovers on my pork tenderloin. I never would have thought that I’d ever enjoy radishes that much!


1 C Radishes, trimmed and halved
1 C stock (I used vegetable)
2 t white wine or champagne vinegar
1 t olive oil
1/2 t salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Trim the radishes and cut in half.
Put all of the ingredients in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes or until fork-tender.


Baked Kale Chips


I have a love hate relationship with Kale. It is a superfood, so good for you!
But really, it is kind of disgusting tasting! I have tried countless recipes trying to make it taste good and have failed each time. The best way I have found kale to be used is to hide it in smoothies.

I’ve tried numerous kale chip recipes and there were okay, but never great. But this weekend, I finally hit the jackpot! We ate all of the kale chips and were left wanting more.


1 bunch of kale
3 T grapeseed oil
1 t seasoning salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brush a cookie sheet with grapeseed oil. Cut up kale into chip sized pieces and place on the cookie sheet. Using a basting brush, brush grapeseed oil over each “chip.” Shake salt over the chips.

Bake 12-15 minutes.
