Respect where our food comes from.

Mad respect goes to organic farmers. It’s a lot of work. Think about it! They don’t use pesticides or chemicals to make it easier and help thing grow faster. It is so important to feed people for our own health, for the earth for the planet. Cheers to farmers!

Find those modern conveniences.

For busy parents running a business you need to find shortcuts. Today it’s possible to have quality and convenience. Take frozen foods for example. Pre-cut frozen vegetables are super easy time savers! Today they taste better than ever, even the texture. They are also flash frozen at their peak freshness so you don’t have to worry about losing quality or those great vitamins and minerals.

Eat simply.

Serafina’s wife and business partner Jen is a professional chef. Jen makes up recipes all of the time, but they have two things in common: ingredients are local and seasonal. Household favorites are spaghetti squash, grapes, hamburgers and salads. Invite us over, please!

What is Serafina’s go-to family meal?

Spaghetti squash, cooked whole.

Note: If you have never tried this type of squash before you are missing out. This recipe is so easy you’ve gotta give it a shot!

  • Set oven to 350
  • Take the whole squash and poke holes it all the way around with a knife and put it on a sheet pan in the oven.
  • Bake for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile: In a pan melt butter and mix with some parmesan, basil and chopped garlic.
  • When you take the squash out of the oven it is easy to cut in half. Watch out for the steam. Scrape out the seeds. Then take a fork and rake out the squash flesh. It will look like spaghetti!
  • Toss with your favorite sauce and enjoy!
