On the farm this week: We are so close to being able to plant in our new greenhouse for a steady supply of winter greens! I can't tell you how exciting it is for me to grow food in the winter, it is so rewarding and very tasty too. We are still harvesting out of the outdoor fields, much later than usual but we will take it.

Carrots: fall carrots are sweet and tender and get better as the cold sets in. Store in a bag in your fridge.

Spinach: tender, sweet and crisp. this spinach is perfect for a salad or sautéed as a side. Store in your fridge for up to a month.

Celery:time to make soup! great eaten raw or cooked but remember, its the real thing so it has A LOT of flavor. Store in a bag in your fridge.

Leek and Potato Galette With Pistachio Crust | Makes 4 Galettes | total time: 55 mins



1/2 cup raw pistachios

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Filling and assembly:

1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling

1 large leek, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced

4 ounces fresh goat cheese

5 tablespoons heavy cream

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

All-purpose flour (for surface)

4 tablespoons coarsely chopped dill, divided, plus sprigs for serving

2 large Yukon Gold potatoes, thinly sliced

1 large egg, beaten to blend

Crushed pink peppercorns (for serving; optional)


  • Dough: Pulse pistachios in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add flour, salt, and sugar and pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse just until a coarse meal forms.

  • With motor running, gradually stream in 1/2 cup ice water and process until dough comes together.

  • Transfer dough to a work surface; form into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic and chill at least 30 minutes.

  • Filling and assembly: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a small skillet over medium-low. Cook leek, stirring occasionally, until softened but without taking on any color, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Mix goat cheese, cream, and garlic in a medium bowl to combine; season with salt and black pepper.

  • Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll out 1 piece of dough on a lightly floured surface to an 8" round; transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using an offset spatula, spread one-quarter of goat cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1" border.

  • Scatter 1 Tbsp. dill evenly over, then top with a thin layer of potato slices. Drizzle with oil; season with salt.
