New Menu! To deliver Tuesday, October 16

Happy fall!

There's a chill in the air, and the leaves have suddenly started to turn colors and fall off the trees. It seems like just last week it was summer!

Here's a great new menu to welcome the chilly weather. Warm up some stuffed acorn squash and some local-veggie chili, snuggle up with a good book, and enjoy!

This menu will be ready to deliver on Tuesday, October 16. Yup, I think we'll be moving back to Tuesdays for a bit and see how it works out for everyone.

Thank you all so much, and I look forward to cooking for you soon!

Much love,
Chef Mary



Chunky White Bean and Local Veggie Stew $9


Acorn Squash stuffed with dried fruit, herbs, and quinoa! Is there anything better in the fall than a lovely warm squash, infused with fragrant sage, studded with chewy apples and crunchy pecans? With local greens du jour. Yum! $12

Muhammara! This middle-eastern style walnut dip is traditionally made with roasted red peppers, but I am offering an even-healthier, just as scrumptious, raw version! Kissed by fragrant cumin and a splash of lemon juice. Served with crunchy veggies to dip. $12

Chili! Hearty beans, lots of local veggies, and rich spices. Delicious, filling, and so good for you! With a nice mound of brown rice to round it all out. $11


Chocolate Zucchini Muffins! With chocolate chips AND chopped walnuts! (Add-ins may be omitted.) Remember when we thought the local zucchini was done for the season? Well thank goodness we were wrong! Back for one last great hurrah! $10 half dozen, $18 dozen

Maple Walnut Granola Balls! Yum! Another popular favorite for all ages, from 2 to 102! $9


Please inform me before ordering if you have any allergies or sensitivities. At Rather Crafty, we do not use any meat, dairy, or egg ingredients. We do not use peanut, soy, wheat, or other gluten-containing ingredients.

We do use a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, local and/or organic when possible. We also use tree nuts, seeds, beans, and non-gluten-containing grains; also organic when possible. We occasionally use real honey, but because some people choose not to use honey I let you know when I use it (like in the dried apples.) The following is not a comprehensive list of ingredients, so please do remind me if I have forgotten to include your dietary sensitivity or path.

Soup contains some cooked onion and garlic.
Squash contains pecans, which may be omitted on request. When I dry the fruit, I dip it in a little honey diluted with water to prevent oxidation, so there's a tiny bit of honey present.
Muhammara contains lots of walnuts, and a small amount of raw garlic.
Chili contains some cooked onions and garlic, and may be medium-spicy for some.
Muffins contain cocoa. Chocolate chips and/or walnuts may be omitted to make them less chocolatey and free of nuts (but I recommend them with both!)
Granola Balls contain nuts. They also contain certified gluten free oats.

NUTS: I use nuts in the kitchen, so even though I am very careful, the possibility of cross-contact exists. Actual pieces of nuts may be omitted everywhere except muhammara and granola balls, which both rely on nuts to work.
RAW: choose muhammara
ACD/low sugar: Definitely choose soup and chili. Choose squash if you tolerate dried fruit. Muhammara contains nutritional yeast, which is not related to candida. Granola balls are sweetened exclusively with maple syrup. Muffins contain organic brown sugar, so if you are sensitive to cane sugar even in reasonable amounts, then you might choose differently.
GRAIN FREE: Definitely choose muhammara. Choose soup and chili (omitting the rice with the chili) if you tolerate beans. If you tolerate quinoa (a pseudograin, not a true grain) then you might also choose the squash.


Much love,
Chef Mary
