I’ve mentioned before that I volunteer to pick fruit for the wonderful organization “Not Far From The Tree”. Now that so many people know about it, it’s increasingly difficult to get in on a pick. So I was thrilled to be one of the chosen the other day for sweet cherries.
This year’s cherry trees are absolutely laden, so I knew that I’d come home with more than 12 cherries like that fateful time in 2011….

There are as many recipes for chilaquiles as there are cooks who make them. – SAVEUR Magazine No. 78 (October 2004), 10th Anniversary Issue: “The Joy of Real Food”, Chilaquiles recipe
Over the past few months, we have been re-reading articles from past issues of SAVEUR. And even in the earlier SAVEUR-100s (the issues that I used to find a little dull and empty), the writing and photography are superior to SAVEUR’s recent offerings.

Last week at the Farmers’ Market, we got a nice bunch of nettles and had the most brilliant nettle stuffed tortellini. The tortellini tasted fabulous AND they were beautiful! You’ll have to take my word for it because there is no photographic evidence.
Then a few days later, we were rifling through the freezer and came across some butternut squash from last fall (thank you again, Josephine!)
We could make tortellini again!
The garden sage is doing brilliantly now that spring has finally sprung so we decided we neeeeeeeeded to have homemade squash tortellini in cream sauce, garnished with fried ham and fresh sage.
Look!! They’re Singing!! (continue reading )
