Eat the Seasons // March 2017

The weather here in Minnesota is giving me some serious emotional whiplash, friends! Going on about two months strong and I’m pretty sure some deep intense therapy will be needed after our first winter back in the Midwest. I thought I suffered from being bipolar, but this weather is clearly proving me wrong, haha! Whew, sorry! Had to get that off my shoulders a bit! But I’ve been assured that

Eat the Seasons | January

It’s a sparkly and hopefully exciting new year! I’m looking forward to what it has to offer! It’s also the dead of winter, here in Minnesota, which doesn’t provide much get-your-butt-in-gear motivation when the sun rarely comes out from behind those thick wintry clouds. Can you tell I’m in need of some serious vitamin D? My ability to see things in a positive light is being affected in a major way!

Eat the Seasons | August

We are closing in on the tail end of summer now that August is in full affect. Crazy to imagine, right? A lot of your kids will be going back to school soon. If you didn’t get that great summer vacation in, while the kids were on break, you’re thinking of ways to make it even more epic next year. Though we don’t have kids, I owe Adam and our dogs

Eat the Seasons | July

We’ve had some warm weather out there lately, but luckily this summer heat has brought us an eruption of fresh fruits and vegetables flowing out from every garden and farm across this beautiful planet. I dread summer’s approach every year, because I cannot stand to be hot and dare I say drenched in sweat. However, my love of a great summer harvest forces me to embrace this heat, head out to the sun-drenched farmers’ markets

Eat the Seasons | April

Wow, can you believe it’s already April? The months are racing by and we are headed straight into a potentially hot summer. The weather has already hit 90 degrees this week, here in the South Bay. I know some of you out there love the heat, my husband included, but I’m not really one of them. I need that perfect 75 degrees to maintain a happy composure. I guess I will need

Eat the Seasons | March

March is sort of our entry into spring, here in California, and the weather has been AMAZING! Well, apart from these last few days of heavy rain and a mild chill to the air. Other than that the trees are in bloom, the air smells more fresh, and the sun is a bit warmer. It makes my heart happy! I’m also excited to see all of the fresh new produce trickling into

Eat the Seasons | November

I have a huge love affair with November and the fall weather! I look forward to soft, cozy sweaters, the leaves turning a deep amber, relaxing with a glass of wine by the fire, Thanksgiving with my family, and comfort foods full of warm spices, hearty flavors and delicious winter vegetables. This time of the year is perfect and magical! As the days become increasingly colder and surprisingly wet here

Eat The Seasons // July

I love July! The weather is perfect, it’s great beach weather, and you are guaranteed to find the “motherload” of fresh fruits and veggies in the stores and farmer’s markets. Over the years my family and I have a tradition of going to the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market on the weekends to check out what’s new and fresh, then complete the morning with a “fully-loaded” brat at one of the stands. Yes, it’s not

Eat The Seasons // June

June is one of my favorite months for fresh produce. It’s the time of the years when farmer’s markets are in full swing and the hot sun has perfectly ripen every fruit and vegetable you can think of. If you are lucky enough to have your own garden, you are probably starting to reap the benefits from the love and care you bestowed on your little plants.  June is pretty much the
