It is officially spring. But official spring never feels like the spring that exists in my imagination.
January has been a month of getting back into the ordinary and the routine.
For much of my life, I was largely indifferent to cauliflower. It was something I might pick from a veggie tray if the carrots and cucumbers were gone.
Now that it’s fall, can we talk about butternut squash for a minute? I love its flavor, but I have to confess that I find it to be kind of a pain to break down.
Eggplant is a fickle fruit.
It is technically a fruit and not a vegetable, despite its savory leanings.
Its flavor can be unpleasantly bitter.
When I see baskets of squash blossoms at the farmers market I am instantly entranced. They are so lovely and delicate.
