Recipes inspired by my West Coast kitchen garden's fruits and vegetables, mushrooms foraged from nearby forests, seafood from our ocean and food from local farms. I make fast and easy recipes for busy lives while keeping the ingredients wholesome and fresh.
It's not quite spring but along with the soups and stews, I am starting to crave some lighter food. Here are some of my favorite ideas.
So much seafood is in season during the cold months. Crisp, cold waters are best for shellfish and spot prawn season is just around the corner.
Fresh Salads - A Side Or Meal
Fresh veggies are the best way to round out a meal. Pair up a soup, stew or other main course with a fresh salad, or make the salad the main course.
Muffins For Everyday
Baking is comforting on cold winter days and is a great way to fill lunch boxes or have a sweet bite after dinner. Apples from cold storage, frozen rhubarb, bananas, and chocolate make tasty (and nutritious) muffins. These recipes are fast and easy, I promise.
