Springtime is officially here and I am living for it. This is my most favorite time of year, food-wise. There's all of these fresh herbs and veggies popping up right now, and the farmer's market is at its peak. Spring veggies, since they're now in season, are also drastically reduced price-wise. I've been buying up… Continue reading Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms
It's been a while. Well, less than a week, but still. I spent the majority of last week laid up on a couch. I had some kind of respiratory infection and it knocked me out for a while.

Summer will be out… Continue reading Roasted Broccoli Salad
I love that my local grocery store has a little fresh olive bar in the produce section. I bought a handful of super green olives yesterday, and they may be the best I've ever had. They've also got roasted garlic cloves, marinated mushrooms (personal fave), and sometimes dolmas. I'm now slightly obsessed with that olive… Continue reading Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm
