Ellwood Eats

Hopefully this blog encourages each and every one of you to overcome your fears of the kitchen and to just dive into ingredients as an artist does with paint or the carpenter does with wood and the IT guru does with technology. There is no right or wrong – it’s the experiment and fun of playing in the sandbox!

Our recipes are super easy, typically using 8 ingredients or less, allowing you you to put your own twist on it. If rosemary is less than favorable, try basil or a seasoning you do like! Cook in the moment and use what’s seasonally available. It’s more fun that way! Use spices and herbs freely, use your imagination by combining ingredients and decide if the outcome deserves a space in your home recipe book.

Thank you for being a fan of ELLWOOD EATS at Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market. We love to serve and are honored you are part of our loving community.

Root vegetables are a combination of carbohydrates and fiber, making you feel full quickly, assist with regulating blood sugar and aiding in digestion. (more…)
