We are striving to increase our fish intake, cuz that is what they tell us to do. With the recent addition of a new fish vendor in the market house, it's become even easier with more varities to choose from.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Salmon / Frank's Fish & Seafood
Wheat Bread / Krause's
Lettuce, Tomatos / Madison's
Mayonaise, Avocados / Madison's

Modified tuna salad recipe, substituting salmon for the tuna.

A simple way to cook fish and make a spread that can last throughout the week, even making a great impromtu snack on saltines. Fresh makes it best.

There are a few things that you cant lose after leaving your hometown of Cleveland. One, that you'll always love the Browns despite their record, two you love snow and laugh when Cincinnatians call a dusting of snow "the white death", and three, that you get a hankering for perogis (specifically homemade ones from Parma) at least once a month. We're still waiting for homemade ones to be available at the Market house, but we were able to find frozen ones that beat out the frozen box of Mrs. T's Pierogi's you find at the Supermarkets. Spice them up with a few extras, and this dish is a quick treat.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Pierogis / Mikes Meats
Mexican Chorizo / Kroeger & Sons
Tomatoes / Madison's
Jalapenos, onions / Madison's
Shaved Parmesan / Madison's

Match these pierogis with any extras.

Fresh makes it best.

On the day before Thanksgiving, you can't show up the banquet, so we went with a simple meal of meatloaf. We had some peppers pre-cut and frozen from our garden and picked up the ground sirloin, which happen to be in abundance as everyone was buying bird and pork. The market was all a buzz, and we look forward to showing you our mashed potato contribution to tomorrow's meal.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Ground Sirloin / Eckerlein Meats
Honey / Bee Haven Honey
Spices / Herbs & Spice & Everything Nice
Tomato Paste / Madison's
Brown Sugar / Madison's
Onions / Madison's
Potatoes / Simpson's Produce

Recipe from old standby "Betty Crocker".

With the days getting colder, we have definitely been enjoying the comfort foods. And with the holidays upon us, leftovers are key to getting it all done. Fresh makes it best.

Eggplant Sticks with Babaganoush and Mixed Green Salad

We typically follow the rule that if it's breaded, it's automatically going to be delicious, and also tandemly bad for our health. Well the script was flipped on this one and we broke all the rules making a fried and breaded vegetable that turned out to be both delicious and somehow good for us...yeah I know what you're thinking...the twilight zone right...too good to be true. Well our taste buds will contest that it wasn't too good to be true, and we honestly just couldn't stop ourselves from eating healthy.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Eggplant / Madison's
Mixed Greens / Madison's
Panko / Saigon Market
Eggs / Heist Seafood & Poultry
Tahini / Dean's Mediterranean
Olive Oil / Dean's
Pita / Madison's

Recipe from Grandma's kitchen.

Double eggplant (eggplant strips and baba) means double happiness. Round it out with a simple salad, game over. Fresh makes it best.

We've decided that almost all meats can taste amazing with the right salts and peppers. We thank Herbs & Spice and Everything Nice for this lesson. Their Washington Sea Salt is unbelievable. It's sweet. Have you ever tasted a sweet salt?

Ingredients / Vendor:

Chicken Breast / Heist
Prosciutto / Gibb's
Washington Sea Salt / Herbs & Spice and Everything Nice
Black Pepper / Herbs & Spice and Everything Nice
Scallions / Madison's
Basmati Rice / Dean's

Although the prosciutto has it's natural salty taste, a well seasoned chicken locks in a delicious juice, and the meat combo is delicious.

One of my favorite dishes is Lasagna, and this dish is basically the same just without the flat noodles.  Made to satisfy the italian spice demon in our bellies that was becoming angry from lack of attention, this number quickly rose to the top of the charts muscling it's way past so many of our "lite" summer fare offerings.

Ingredients / Vendor:

Tomatoes / Our Garden
Sausage / Kroeger & Sons
Onion, Garlic, Basil / Madison's
Shaved Parmesan / Madison's
De Cecco Penne / Silverglade's
Ricotta Cheese, Mozzarella / Gibbs Cheese
Olive Oil / Dean's Mediterranean
Crushed Red Pepper, S&P / Herbs & Spice
Egg / Heist Fish & Poultry

Modified recipe from "Food & Wine" magazine.

We actually decided to bake this glorious casserole in our toaster oven to cut back on the heat in the kitchen.  We made the red sauce a day ahead and let it sit overnight for the flavors to fully develop.  We knew that this was more of a winter dish but sometimes you cant deny classic home made stick to your ribs casseroles, especially lasagna and any of its close relatives.  What really stood out in this concoction was the ricotta.  It was the sweetest ricotta we've ever tasted with the perfect amount of sourness to it, that worked splendidly to balance out the spicy zing we added to the recipe.  It's so delicious you could eat it by the spoonful straight out of the container, oops did I do that.  Maybe when it gets closer to holiday time, the Feed Me Findlay Dynamic Duo will venture out into dessert world and put our beloved ricotta to the test in a new arena.  Yup-yup, as always fresh makes it best!
