Memorial Day is here, which means that summer is coming, and I am a happy camper. Sunshine, summertime, huge changes coming our way, and a WHOLE new crop of amazing fruit at farmers market.

It's winter in California, which means that delicious apples are everywhere. For that reason, it's also the only time of year that I crave them. It's pretty impressive how the body can be so in tune with the seasons, even so much so that cravings follow suit. That crisp bite, the sweet aroma and flavor. Apples [...]

MY husband and I have gotten really good at a once a week shopping trip to farmers market that lasts us the whole week. Usually, Friday and Saturday turn out some pretty awesome, creative meals as we work to use up whatever is left  before our Sunday trip. Soups turn to sauces, meals might look [...]
