Days Gone By

Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin soup is velvety in texture and contains diced pieces of ham for added flavor. The muffin is an all time favorite around here. Please let me know if you enjoyed the recipe or if you added an ingredient to the recipe. Thanks for stopping by. Margaret The Outdoor Epicurean   Photo Courtesy of King […]

Lunch Box Blues

The Outdoor Epicurean knows it is difficult to remain enthusiastic when it comes to take from home lunches or an office lunch.  As a former teacher, I would bring the leftover dinner from the night before and heat it in the teacher’s lounge.  Most students do not have this option. While we make our children’s […]

Green Beans 101

I awoke with Captain Rick for his fishing charter. He leaves before the sun rises so I took the opportunity to pick our two rows of green beans in the coolness of the morning. I had some interesting company while I was out in the field. A young doe was not the least bit flustered […]

Baked Zucchini

We continue with our series from garden to table.  Zucchini is delicious when baked with tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.  Since the tomatoes are not ready in the garden, I am using canned tomatoes.  Please substitute fresh if you have them.  You will need 3 cups of chopped tomatoes for this dish. If you have any […]

Zucchini

The Outdoor Epicurean will be starting a series on canning in the Preservation Kitchen folder. Our gardens generally produce a bumper crop of produce. One idea that I would like to share if you are in the same position as we are is to donate your excess produce to the food banks in your area […]

Maryland Crab Cakes

In the spirit of Independence Day, I am sharing with you my Maryland Crab Cake recipe. It is beyond delicious. I am a transplant to the South where we did not eat crab cakes. My southern husband says they are spot on! The Best, Always, Margaret

This could become your go-to salad because of its ease of preparation. It makes a great lunch of leftovers and is delicious.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. The Best, Always, Margaret      

Grilled Vegetable Pizza

  If I could bottle a fragrance, it would be of a grilled vegetable pizza. Seriously, this is delicious. I would probably eat it everyday. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! The best, always, Margaret

For the Love of Blackberries

I absolutely love this time of year. The gardens are beginning to supply us with delicious foods. I wanted to give you a recipe for blackberry pie but the they were all eaten before I had a chance. All the best, always, Margaret

Boat Food

Boat Food is making its way ever so slowly to the printing stage. It has been 15 months since i first endeavored on this project. I need to tell, i am hooked on writing. Boat Food has been a lot of fun. My kitchen was kept up as I learned early on to clean up […]

Socks and Bulbs

I am finally getting around to preparing my Amaryllis from the winter holidays. While I was sorting the laundry,  The Outdoor Epicurean finds herself with a lot of mismatched socks.   An idea hit me.  Why not use the mismatched sock s to store my bulbs.  The fabric will let the bulbs get air and the […]

Can Do Spirit

I love this time of year when the strawberries are in full bloom. I remember as a child attending a strawberry festival every year with my family. We would get a string on our wrist and this would entitle us to eat as many strawberry shortcakes as we could. I thought it would be fitting […]

Stuffed Mushroom Caps

The Outdoor Epicurean has a delicious mushroom recipe that could become your go-to appetizer. You can substitute shrimp or a mild fish in place of the crab meat. Enjoy!

Oriental Style Pasta Salad

      The Outdoor Epicurean thinks this could easily become one of your go to recipes.  The pasta salad is pretty as a picture and just as delicious.  It is vegetarian and is a  great picnic food or contribution to a potluck and church supper. I have taken it to work as a quick […]

The Outdoor Epicurean is beginning a series of pasta salad recipes that will make you life a lot easier. The beautiful of pasta salad is that it can be made and advance. If the recipe calls for fresh ingredients, they can be added at the last minute. Pasta salad can be beautiful as well as […]

What do you think we eat?

We have all heard the expression “You are what you eat.” For a person who painstakingly packs the lunchbox of their child, we know that we will never find out if your healthy lunch was traded for a bag of chips and a candy bar. That is unless you volunteer for lunch duty every day. […]

Getting a Signal from The Outdoor Epicurean

Margaret The Outdoor Epicurean has taken a retreat to finish the editing of Boat Food, The Cookbook for Boaters. I left the everyday scene of family, pets and routines. Captain Rick and I ventured to an island off the coast of Maryland where wild houses run and the ocean waves are hypnotic. The abode is […]
