Local Ingredients for the Week

farmersmarketbounty.jpgOne of my favorite things to do on the weekend is stroll over to my local Farmer’s Market and buy produce for the week. What were the stars of the show last weekend? Probably the most tender baby chard I’ve ever seen. I never knew it even CAME in a baby size- aren’t I a silly city girl. I immediately brought it home and sauteed it up in some sesame oil, garlic, and minced onions. I also found some beautiful cranberry beans, zucchini (yes those ever so mundane veggies have FINALLY won me over this summer) and of course, petit pan squash because they are just so darned cute. Figs and other assorted round fruit, summer squash, broccoli and Kale made their way home with me as well. So far I’ve used the broccoli in a vegan “cheddah” soup and part of the red pepper in the promised white bean knishes. Don’t worry- I will blog the worthy recipes and let the rest sink into the oblivion of time. bebekale.jpg

Coming attractions: The July installment of the Gluten Free Recipe Box, a recipe for Gluten Free lasagna with homemade ricotta and a recipe for homemade ice cream. And a teaser- the Gluten Free Beer is still bubbling its way into fermented drinkability!

News: As you may have noticed, the Book of Yum is getting renovated. Quite simply, we’ve accumulated so much content since we began in January that we need better structure and organization. I’m really excited about these changes and think that you will notice a definite improvement in the usability of the site. Feel free to post any suggestions for improvements in the comments, and we will do our best to implement your suggestions into our remodel. In the meantime, see if you can spot all the changes! (Kinda like Where’s Waldo, but less exciting.) There are more changes to come, so stay tuned! And don’t worry, barring any terrible accidents, we plan on staying online and will continue to post at our normal rate during our renovations.
