Snow in July sounds great, doesn't it?  Especially in the form of this updated vintage recipe for Lemony Snow Pudding with Rose Custard Sauce! Snow Pudding.  I would bet there is not a soul at this point of the summer that doesn't find that name enticing.  When rooting around in my Grandmother's recipe box recently I came upon this recipe on a handwritten, well-weathered recipe card.  It took a fair amount of scrutinizing to tease out the method from the shorthand every cook develops when … CONTINUE READING

Pork Tenderloin in Mustard Caper Cream Sauce

Pork Tenderloin in Mustard Caper Cream Sauce - BoulderLocavore.com

One of my very favorite cuts of meat is Pork Tenderloin.  It’s light in flavor and can be persuaded toward many different tastes with simple marinades or sauces.  It’s moist when cooked well and cooks quickly.  It is the best choice for those ‘need something on the table in less than an hour’ days. By this time in the summer I can’t bear the thought of preparing anything requiring the oven be turned on.  It’s so hot I barely have an appetite.  Despite living on popsicles for the last month I … CONTINUE READING

Rhubarb Crunch

Rhubarb Crunch- BoulderLocavore

I feel a bit sorry for rhubarb if I were being quite honest.  Spring rolls around and all eyes are on the berries.  Shiny, ruby-red strawberries, bursting blue blueberries and of course the tantalizingly sweet demure raspberries.  Few cast a glance at what appears to the uninformed as sunburned celery stalks, often forced to keep company with the greens and lettuces as though it is merely a fruit interloper.  In fact it is not a fruit however it is used in recipes as a fruit.  What a confused … CONTINUE READING
