Garlic Scapes : what should I make with them?

I was excited to be invited to The Wolfville Farmer's Market last Wednesday night to speak about food blogging, photography and styling. I had the good fortune to finally meet Wendy McCallum from Simple Balance, and Mitzi from Box of Delights Bookstore (who was selling copies of Maritime Fresh!). They are lovely people working on completely different yet totally inspiring projects. I highly suggest checking out their websites.

During a break, I wandered around the market looking for inspiration and as soon as I saw these gorgeous garlic scapes there was no question they were coming home with me. I bought them from Sarah Pittoello of www.rerooted.ca, who had printed copies of her recipe for Garlic Scape and Cauliflower Soup next to the curly swirly bunches. I grabbed a copy of the recipe but I don't know - I think it's too hot for soup right now. I'm thinking of making a salad dressing instead. I think I (gasp!) need more salad in my life.

Have you ever cooked with garlic scapes? What do you suggest I do with them?

Pin It!

new beginnings

Sean and I got married in September 2009. Combined with a full-time job and a full-slate of photo projects (oh, and we also managed to paint our house and build three new decks) led me to a summer of limited bookings in 2010. By choice, I decided to 'take a break' from the hustle and bustle - I spent my time laying low, soaking up the amazing weather we experienced here in Nova Scotia this summer.

Now it is November. As I look outside, it is clear that summer has most definitely passed for another year. Although sadly missing the sun, I can feel my heart starting to race as I think about what the next year will have in store for me.

New moments, new faces, new images - THAT is what makes my heart truly race.

Kwasi and CJ

Kwasi - the groom - re-located from Ghana to Halifax of all places. Fun loving with a HUGE personality!!

CJ - the bride - Nova Scotia girl born and bred. Gorgeous, quiet, sweet.

What are the chances that these two people from completely different backgrounds would meet, fall in love, get married and live happily ever after?

I'd say about 100%.

I had an EXTREMELY hard time narrowing down my selection of photos to display. Here are some of my favourites:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the speeches, three of Kwasi's friends from Ghana pulled drums out from beneath the tablecloths and walked through the ballroom, in a line, drumming and singing. Every guest from Ghana rose to join them for a magical dance and singalong. Drums, rich deep voices, handclaps, amazing authentic African clothing - it was a truly unique experience I will not soon forget!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Kelly,

Sorry this has taken this long in coming. CJ and myself have been meaning to do this for a while now. We will like to say a big thank you for all your work and dedication in making our wedding day a great one. You did a wonderful job and it shows in the pictures. They are all very lovely. You sure captured everything and so looking at the pictures it is so easy to re-live the moment over and over again.

Don’t be surprised if you start getting a lot of calls for more work. Just call us and give us 10% (just kidding).

Thanks a lot and take care,

Kwasi and CJ
