Edit: Just have to add that the Bourbon Thyme cocktail is amazing, and has become the preferred cocktail of the summer at my house!
I was raised by a single mom, and we didn’t have much money, so most of the vegetables I had growing up either came from a can or were baby carrots. To say there is a kale and radish sized gap in my culinary education is not an understatement; I had no idea how to prepare vegetables to be palate-pleasing.
In early 2017, I joined a CSA to try and broaden my food options. Our CSA sends out an email every week with details about the haul for the week, as well as recipe suggestions. The farmers kept linking to Andrea’s blog, and I absolutely fell in love with her food. It is accessible (no weird ingredients that you can’t find at Safeway), well-written, and super tasty. When I found out she had a book, I ordered it immediately.
At this point, almost a year later, I’ve made almost every recipe in the Dishing Up the Dirt cookbook. I’ve never been disappointed in a recipe, and it is one of two books (the other is Jenn Louis’ Book of Greens) I regularly recommended to friends and family looking to eat better (but not boring).
On another note, the photos are gorgeous, and the food is styled well. I love reading the stories that accompany the recipes, and learning more about Andrea and Taylor’s life on the farm. I suggest you also check out her Instagram (@andreabemis) as well for a regular dose of all the farm pretty she is dishing up (ha!).
I appreciate hearing her perspective of farm life, which is something real and poignant and backbreaking work not to be forgotten for the people growing food to sustain us all. I feel so thankful to stumbled upon the blog several years ago and to have this trusty cookbook by my side in the kitchen. Make the beet butter!! You won't be disappointed.
