Currently Loving // Falling for Fall

The wonderful and magically season we call Fall is here and I’m over the moon! With it brings a soft crispness in the air, leaves that turn brilliant shades of copper and golden sunshine, a wardrobe full of thick sweaters to snuggle up in and juicy apples ripe for the picking. Gone are lazy days soaking up the sun at the beach and weekend barbecues with friends and family. However,

Blood Orange, Thyme, and Fennel Grilled Trout

I think it’s safe to say that spring has officially arrived in all of its glory! I can see the buds starting to come out on the trees and the daffodils springing up from the now-thawed ground. All of that unused energy I stored away, during those winter months stuck inside, has me running around outdoors cleaning up the yard and garden beds.  Mortifyingly it also led me to tear

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!

Honey Nut Squash and Pear Bisque

Wow, guys! It’s been awhile, huh? I swear I have a good excuse for my absence lately. It just happens that Adam and I have been moving. Ugh, I feel like my life has been endless moments of moving from one place to the next, but in all honesty, I love it! I find that staying in one place for too long makes me feel stagnant. It’s refreshing to change

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 | 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 // 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
