Spring Living

The weather is warm, the flowers are in bloom and the farmers markets are brimming with fresh fruits and vegetables. It is officially spring and we're making the most of it.

There's something to be said for cooking with fresh foods. This past week Todd and I set out to eat fresh veggies with all of our meals and to experiment with new, spring recipes.




I recently started subscribing to Martha Stewart's food magazine Everyday Food. One of my favorite things to do is try new recipes. I tried out two from the April issue.

We kicked off the week with Tilapia & Quinoa with Cucumbers and Feta



A couple nights later we made a Chopped Greek Salad




Throw in a picnic dinner in Centennial Park and a BBQ with friends tonight, this has been an amazing week filled with fresh foods and fun spring activities.

I love summer too, but I'm really hoping this mild weather stays around for awhile.

Happy Weekend!

  2. There is drool on my keyboard. I'm not proud of that.

    I agree with Christine - BEAUTIFUL pictures! Of scrumptious-looking food!

    [Will you please cook for me sometime soon? I'm willing to pay.]
