Knaughty Farms® Lemon Squares

I really love to bake!  I try to be the person who bakes things and delivers them to friends and family, which I do here and there.  It is my way of telling them "Thanks for putting up with us!" (Insert laughing face, but seriously though)  Now with the being said, there is only so much baking that I can accomplish having 3 small kids. Sometimes the girls will bake with me, my oldest is really good at dumping everything in the mixing bowl and then helping me set it out on trays, my middle is still getting the hang of getting it to the tray and not eating it but its a battle.  I don't really blame her, she definitely has a...

Knaughty Farms Fresh Pesto

Well we did it, Adam and I planted a garden and guess what I haven’t killed anything yet!! Let’s be honest, no green thumb here, wouldn’t keep anything alive if not for my husband and thank goodness for him. I asked him if he would help me plant a garden and he, of course, agreed very reluctantly! I went to the store bought the plants and some pots to put them in since our yard is pretty selective on what gets good afternoon sun. We got those bad boys planted and on a drip system with a timer so when, not if, I forget to water them they still get water! Then off they went, and man did all our...

Fried Zucchini Bits

Summer is in full blast here at Knaughty Farms, which means lots of yummy foods. As many of my friends and family know, I do not have a green thumb what-so-ever, if I keep a plant alive it is something close to a miracle. My husband is a farmer and is a darn good one (thank goodness), he keeps all my plants alive and thriving. He comes by it naturally, between him and my father-in-law, they are hard workers and supply me and my girls as well as my sister and mother in-law with a healthy amount of home grown foods! The things they don’t grow, because we do have a farm and are very diversified which means they are...

Salad Made for a King & Queen

This time of year is great for BBQ and in this house we BBQ at least 5 times a week.  My Dad has taught me many things throughout the years and cooking is one that he is very passionate about and loves sharing with everyone around him.  He is always into trying new things and one of many things that he got me hooked on is Grilled Lettuce.  I know, I know this sounds interesting but it's one of those things I say don't knock it till you try it.  The first time I made it for my husband he said, "Your making what?" I told him just to try it and ever since he has been hooked and wants it even...

Knaughty Farms Lemon Rosemary Olive Oil Cake

For people that like baking as much as I do that means you usually like to try new recipes and new ways of making the same recipe.  I come from a family of bakers with recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation with stories and fun times behind every baked good.  I can still remember baking on the counter with my Grandma and Mom as they made me Angel Food Cake with strawberries in the middle of course (I am a sucker for strawberries) and the fun times we had in the kitchen.   Bringing you to the present I am still surrounded by people who know how to bake and bake well may I add.  An amazing...
