A Few of my Favorite Things

by on August 11th, 2015

Let’s just start by saying that I love the Farmer’s Market–everything I need for a week of healthy and colorful eating I can find there and it’s a great way to support the community. Pairing this with the wonderful cooking resources at ICPL means that the ideas of new and fun things to try are endless.

My favorite thing that I can find at the market would have to be the myriad types of tomatoes.  These special little fruitables are by far one of the most versatile pieces of summer fare around. From little yellow cherries to not quite ripe greens and the large beefmasters, local farmers carry as many types of tomatoes as there are ways to use them.  From red and green salsas, to caprese salads and slow roasted cherries there are so many easy, healthy and delicious ways to use this summer bounty.  For more great ideas check out some of these books:
