FARMER’S MARKET: MY LAST HAUL OF THE SEASON + TIPS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR TRIP

Today I went to the last farmer’s market of the season. It’s getting too hot, so it’ll be on hiatus until October, when the weather cools down. I was sad to say goodbye to what’s become my Friday morning ritual, but for one last time this Spring, I bought some stunning produce which I’m excited to be cooking with this week. I didn’t take my camera with me today because I really wanted to enjoy shopping and talking to the farmers and not worry about getting shots, but I’ve put together a little collage of ph ...

THYME & CITRUS-SCENTED SWEET POTATO MASH

Ok, so that title’s kind of a mouthful. But this mash is actually really simple, and you’ll want to eat mouthful after mouthful. We eat sweet potatoes a lot; mostly because I don’t think I’ve ever met a potato I didn’t like (seriously!) and also because they’re supposed to be healthier than regular old potatoes –which might be true if they weren’t eaten in the quantities I eat them. This bright orange mash is citrus-kissed and thyme-flecked, and it’s incredibly fluffy without even a hint of oil or butter ... Read More

MISO-GINGER OVEN BAKED SALMON

I hope you don’t feel like I’ve neglected you this past week. My computer sort of broke down –it started to run really slooooooooowwwwwwwlllllyyyyyy — and I had to take it in to have it looked at. It’s better now, and hopefully it’ll stay that way—fingers crossed! Now, I don’t know about you but I ate way (and I mean WAY) too many little gold bunnies in the lead-up to Easter. I just couldn’t resist—every time I walked into the grocery store I put a little gold bunny (or two…or three) in my shopping ba ... Read More

HOMEMADE FRESH CHILI PASTE

Did you guys have a good Easter? What did you get up to? I: ate too much chocolate, had a relaxed brunch with a friend, and then a nice little dinner at home with the husband. I’m excited about this week because Rols and I have plans to see old friends of ours from out of town, and I have a girls’ night in planned which should be a lot of fun. I spent today clearing out my fridge and getting organized for the week, and I found I had a ton of chili peppers! I bought a bunch this week after forgetting that I already had ... Read More
