How is it that summer is almost over?! I feel like summer always flies by, but this year has taken the cake for me – between lots of friend visits, quick jaunts north to wine country and south to LA, and an extra-hectic work schedule, I feel like I’ve barely blinked and September is almost upon us.
“Summer” in the Bay Area pretty much means nothing in terms of weather, but I absolutely still use the season to take advantage of the extra-special produce: corn, tomatoes, basil, peaches, berries, oh my! When I was thinking about just the right recipe to celebrate the quickly fading summer months, this elote farro salad struck me as just the thing.
Early spring is such a fun time to cook for me. It’s not hot yet, so we still crave hearty, homey food, but the produce section at the grocery store is starting to look a hell of a lot brighter, fuller, and more colorful. It’s the best of both worlds!
Another rainy, dreary January Sunday, another bowl o’ winter love food. I just can’t get enough.
I have been having so much fun in the kitchen the past few weeks, guys. January has no holidays, no expectations, no food blogger deadlines to meet. As much as I love this blog and how it forces to me to cook seasonally and food-celebrate every holiday (albeit one week early, always), sometimes it’s nice to just cook whatever the hell I want, without foresight or planning or thinking about it altogether too much at all.
It’s officially November, and you know what that means….
I can barely contain my Thanksgiving excitement until the calendar flips over to November. It’s just the best, smushiest holiday ever and I love all Thanksgiving food so much. (Besides cranberry sauce. Cranberry sauce can go.) I look forward to our family’s Thanksgiving literally all year, so by the time November comes around, I already have visions of stuffing and sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie dancing in my head. It’s a tad embarrassing, but I don’t care – I know I have some Thanksgiving-dork soulmates out there, right?
