Our sweet pea seed store has been updated with ten new varieties! We finally had an opportunity to finish cataloguing the rest of our 2020 harvest and were delighted to discover a decent supply of ‘Castlewellan' (pictured), 'Clementine Kiss', 'Candyfloss', and a few other hard to find favorites. More than seventy varieties are now available for shipping next week!

If you're like me, you might be preparing for a special New Year's Eve dinner. Though we'll be celebrating small this year, I still plan to dust off some of the good china and open a special bottle of bubbles.

Is there anything more comforting than an extra cheesy lasagna? I still have daydreams about our butternut lasagna, made with butternut squash, apple, ricotta, and parmesan.

Merry Christmas from us at Ardelia Farm & Co. and Kingdom Direct!

Today, we'll be cooking and cocktailing just the two of us, fondly recalling this chocolate peppermint baked Alaska that I made for last year's Christmas party. There will be no such showstoppers this year, but we're ok with that.

The world just feels more sparkly this time of year. Probably thanks to this guy and all of our friends and family close to Ardelia Farm & Co.

Although we might be celebrating at a distance this year, we still recognize how fortunate we are to have our health and our home. Here's to making the season bright.

Liz Tossing Wheat Berry Salad

Just a little reminder from Chef Liz to eat some greens this holiday season. Our wheat berry salad was a success with Vermonters, packed with nutritious wheat berries from Nitty Gritty Grains, butternut squash, dried cherries, kale, and toasted walnut. Like Christmas in a bowl.

Come back in 2021 to see what we have in store for our Kingdom Direct customers. https://bit.ly/3mFUIb6

Coconut Curry Pie

More behind-the-scenes magic in from the Kingdom Direct kitchen.

We're doing a little thowback on a Saturday (breaking the rules, we know), and we have our coconut curry pie on display, a popular menu item that makes a delectable ready-to-reheat-and-eat item. We give them a swirl on top, and send them off to hungry Vermonters!

Pot-de-creme Dusting

Perfection is our Pot-de-creme! This luxurious French dessert is made with organic dark chocolate, Sweet Rowen Farmstead milk, cream, egg yolk, and organic sugar, topped with soft peaks of very lightly sweetened cream. Ally pipes these beautiful swirly-whirls, and dusts them with cocoa. We can't wait to bring them back to you in 2021!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake Icing

We don't bake just cookies here at Kingdom Direct. As a pastry chef backed by a talented team, I love creating cakes, puddings, pies, and all sorts of sweets for Vermonters.

Our pumpkin spice latte cake was a hit, with its light and frothy frosting and not-too-sweet spice making it an ideal dessert paired with coffee in the mornings. I encourage you to watch this over and over again.

I'm currently daydreaming of brunch frittatas and crispy waffles, shared by friends and family and served on these lovely blue and white dishes.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I threw 52 dinner parties in a single year, with the goal of chronicling each moment spent cooking, baking, and hosting my loved ones.

Until we can gather again, you can now relive the magic on our blog, with each meal its own story on the Ardelia Farm & Co. website: https://bit.ly/3aaVDOn

Chicken wild rice soup was a common fixture in our house when I was growing up.

So when I decided to add it to the Kingdom Direct menu, naturally I asked my mother for her recipe.

Wild rice, vegetables, toasted almonds, and Hillside Farm / Pearce's Pastured Poultry chicken combine with garlic and white wine in a rich, creamy, flavorful chicken broth.

It’s hearty and comforting while still being quite light. Thanks mom!

Roasted sweet potato, housemade focaccia, Ardelia Farm smoked ham, garlicky sauteed spinach, onions, peppers, and cheddar cheese all lined up and ready to make their way into a breakfast strata.

I even made an extra one for myself to bring home and stick in the freezer for Christmas morning!

Short ribs have an incredible depth of flavor, and rich marbling.

Braising (searing, then cooking in liquid) is the ideal cooking method as it allows that toughness to break down and reveal the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness that lies within.

I’ve learned that I’m incapable of posting about anything French without saying “Ooh-la-la!”.

This sensational soup features a rich, robust beef broth made with our own grass-fed beef bones combined with butter, red wine, lots of garlic, and deeply caramelized onions. Each quart comes with two pieces of housemade focaccia and a little baggie of shredded cheese for topping and bubbling.

Here's your Saturday Steak-A-Day! The top round steak comes from the cow's upper back legs, aka the butt. This is the cut that gets pounded into cube steak because it's quite lean and a bit tough, and it's best with some tenderization or a marinade. By seasoning this steak and letting it rest overnight, we end up with a tender and flavorful cut of beef that only requires a good sear, and is just perfect for steak fajitas.

Get the recipe from our link, and get your top round steak from our online beef store today before our store closes this Sunday evening! https://bit.ly/2HYDE21

Flank steak is incredibly versatile, and it takes flavor well. It is often compared to skirt steak, but it's leaner and a bit more tender than the skirt. Here, I've given it a quick and easy marinade, then grilled over high heat on our gas grill for just a few minutes.

ProTip: It's quite a thin cut, so it cooks up very quickly! Serve it up with spicy chimichurri: https://bit.ly/3ltbycS

New from Kingdom Direct! Last week I put “Create A Sexy New Lasagna” on Chef’s Liz’s production sheet, but that was the only direction given. What she cooked up is quite sexy indeed.

Layers of roasted onion and squash, sauteed broccoli and apple, toasted walnut, and garlic with cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, and Jasper Hill Farm blue cheese. It’s warm, comforting, and a lot of fun, like a hug from Santa. And it doesn’t get any sexier than that.

This will be the last Kingdom Direct dinner party until 2021, so I wanted to go out with a bang!

Since we started this year with a very special vegetarian Indian dinner party, it seemed fitting to end with one as well.

This menu includes haak ka saag, vegetable #korma, and dal makhani served with rice and cilantro.

For dessert: gajar ka halwa, warm carrot pudding made with ghee and cardamom, topped with cashews and golden raisins.

We’ll also be whipping up some maple chai to accompany this menu, with a special blend of spices and fresh ginger, Sweet Rowen Farmstead milk, and black tea.

Sizzle sizzle, baby. This sirloin steak is absolute perfection. Tender, juicy, and so delicious.

The cow's sirloin is in the sub primal posterior, behind the short loin, from which the porterhouse and T-bone are cut. It has incredible flavor, is easy to cook, and quite versatile. It is pretty lean, so it's best served medium rare.

The secret to this Steak-A-Day recipe: I make my own herb butter with minced garlic and farm fresh herbs, with no specific instructions. Just follow your heart! Get the recipe from Kingdom Direct, and pick up a sirloin from our beef store tomorrow at 12pm! https://bit.ly/2I1fcwY

Rib steak is a great choice when you're craving a good old-fashioned steak, tender, juicy, and succulent with excellent marbling that's full of flavor. It can be cooked quickly on the grill or on the stove.

My rib steak got a little closer to medium in the process of photographing, but it was still incredible. What's your go-to cut of beef?

As you already know, beef tenderloin (aka filet mignon) is exquisite. Lean and tender, Ardelia Farm's beef tenderloin steak will truly melt-in-your mouth. It will make any meal into a very special occasion.

Because it is so lean, tenderloin is best served medium rare. To make this gorgeous steak, all you need is a cast iron pan, salt and pepper, and some butter. Oh, and this recipe: https://bit.ly/2Jz3vy0

Farm fresh eggnog from Kingdom Direct

I put eggnog in the same category as English muffins and marshmallows: Once you’ve tasted a homemade version, it’s difficult to ever go back to store-bought. There’s just no comparison. Ours is made with Butterworks Farm organic cream and Sweet Rowen Farmstead grass-fed milk, with a whisper of vanilla and a dusting of freshly grated nutmeg. Thick, rich, creamy, delicious, and not too sweet. https://bit.ly/2Vg0SUm

Looking to the work week ahead: Ham steaks are underappreciated, and the perfect easy weeknight dinner because all you have to do is heat it up! I melt some butter in a cast iron over high heat, toss in the ham steak, let it sizzle for a few minutes on each side, and it’s done.

Just had your sweet potato curried pork shepherd's pie. It was AMAZING. TY! The curry was subtle but layered. Really good stuff!
I have a complaint. You say that the Flourless Chocolate Cake will last for a week but I can't get it to last for more than a couple of days. And that's with A LOT of self-control. 😉
