Wee Gazpacho Video

As summer comes to a close this is the time of year when I find myself buying every single tomato I see at the farmers’ market so that I can make gazpacho. In fact I bought so many tomatoes last weekend that we ended up making three batches over the course of two days. We ate the first batch for lunch that day and then hubby and I had the rest for lunch all week long. If you’ve never made gazpacho before because you think it’s too complicated, watch this Wee Gazpacho video to see just how incredibly easy it is.

Wee Gazpacho is a delicious big bowl of health. Tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, cucumbers, celery, onions and more pureed with a drop of tart lemon juice and a touch of sweetness from balsamic vinegar (a good reduced balsamic can totally enhance the flavor of this cool soup) provides all you need to get tons of nutrients in one mealtime sitting. It’s also a really economical way to feed the whole family. Since it’s better to make this soup with...

Planet Box Giveaway from Weelicious - FIVE Winners!

Both of my kids have been using PlanetBox lunch boxes for years, but it wasn’t until this summer that I realized just how important Kenya’s bento box-style lunch box is to him. It’s been non-stop busy for me for the past few years to say the very least, so this summer I made an effort to set aside big chunks of time to just be with the kids. We traveled on planes several times, and whenever we fly I like to make sure I have their favorite “plane food” on hand. Before our first summer trip Kenya helped...

Earlier this month Kenya spent a week at the Stone Barns Center Farm Camp, where he really got in touch with food and nature learned what it means to be a good junior farmer. At the beginning of the week he learned how to feed baby chicks their first drops of water, which he said was an unbelievably cute experience. On the last day of camp Kenya got to gather eggs from the free range chickens — and I got to go with him!

As usually tends to be the case with my garden every summer, there are more cherry tomatoes growing on my vines than I know what to do with. I’m talking hundreds of little bright orange and red orbs multiplying by the minute. As a result, I’ve been frantically picking and tossing them into as many dishes as possible. That makes my brood happy as everyone in our family adores cherry tomatoes. Then as I was cleaning out my fridge before heading out on vacation, I also realized that I had a bunch of half-used bags of frozen vegetables like corn and peas sitting neglected in the freezer. This quick recipe was my solution to having to get rid of a bunch of food before we headed out of town for a couple of weeks.

Balsamic Roasted Onions from Weelicious

The genesis for this recipe was years ago, when I witnessed Kenya voraciously eating raw onions off a smoked salmon platter at a birthday party when he was just a wee one. Being that he was essentially still a baby I was totally shocked, but also elated as I myself am an onion lover. I was motivated by this occurrence, and started making him cooked onion recipes like healthy baked Crispy Onion Rings and later graduated to big bowls of Ooey Gooey French Onion Soup (one of my own beloved childhood dishes).
