Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

Recipe from Tart and Sweet: 101 Canning and Pickling Recipes for the Modern Kitchen by "Kelly Geary, Jessie Knadler" (Rodale Books, 2011)

ImageFill a salad bowl with young dandelion greens (or another bitter green). Add a minced shallot, the zest of 1/2 lemon, and the juice of the whole lemon. Add a handful of strained pickled fiddleheads (see recipe here). Drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper. Toss and top with a poached egg and a sprinkle of Pecorino cheese. For a more decadent version, add bacon lardons.

NOTE: Fiddleheads can taste bitter if not cleaned properly. To prepare, trim the "tail" of the shoot just to where it starts to coil. Soak the heads in cold water and swirl them around, picking and rubbing away any brown flaky bits. Repeat as necessary until all the brown bits have been removed.
