Spring Carrot Salad

April 6, 2018

Carrot salad has always been a weeknight standard in the Hubele salad rotation. It’s a quick prep when time is limited and because it only improves with an overnight in the fridge, it makes for a welcome lunch the following day. This Heidi Swanson version however takes carrot salad to the next level and is well…

Broccoli Soup

Jan 2, 2018 | 0 Comments

Sometimes we are blessed by what little we have, as was recently my experience. It was the end of the week, and I needed to put together one more meal with the remnants of all of the produce left in the fridge. Sometimes this leads to dinner fails and other times it’s a win. I declare this Better Broccoli Soup a win and so did my family. Ingredients 2 Large heads of organic broccoli, the longer and thinner the stems,…
