I don’t know about yours, but my Dad is a great cook! I have fond memories of him making us buckwheat pancakes growing up, and he still is a grilling machine. If you have a foodie father, here are some gift ideas! Don’t forget, Father’s Day is June 20!
Spring has sprung! It seems like overnight the farmer’s market is suddenly bursting with lettuce, spinach, and strawberries. I can finally get started on the spring recipes from Simply in Season like this one.

You might have noticed I’ve been a bit lax in the recipe department this week. I’m just waiting for my CSA to start this coming week (woo hoo!) so I can dig into the spring recipes. I do have a few recipes from the “winter” and “anytime” sections of Simply in Season, but seriously, who wants to make Vegetarian Chili…
