Adventures in Cooking from the Garden is 6 Months Old – Top 6 Recipes of the First 6 Months


Thank you all for a great first 6 months of my blog!  I have really enjoyed sharing my garden and its bounties with you.  I am looking forward to sharing ways to use the items I froze or canned over the next few months (and the winter veggies) and to start all over again with planting this spring…3 months til we start prepping the soil!

It was neat to look back at what posts were viewed most, they were a real mix.  Here are the top recipes you all viewed this year…

#6 – Watermelon Gazpacho

This was one of my favorite new dishes I made.  It was a refreshing treat on hot summer days. I love the “yellowness” from using the yellow watermelon!

#5 – Khoresh Bademjun – Persian Eggplant Stew

Our family favorite!  I am so happy so many of you found this one.

This reminded me, I still have more in the freezer…need to make some good bread to go with it!

#3 – ‘Sun-Dried’Tomatoes in the Oven

I can’t live without this!  Our New Year’s Eve dinner was linguine with a sun-dried tomato, artichoke and feta sauce.

#2 – Freezing Corn

Probably the most basically useful post.  Look for recipes with corn over the next couple of months.
