When I started this blog in 2008, I had no idea that I would still be writing it seven years later. Thanks to followers like you, I have been on and amazing food adventure and have learned more than I could have imagined about farms, food artisans and chefs.
I’ve also had the incredible opportunity to write for others, which has, at times, distracted me from the blog (paychecks will do that). I realized last year that I really missed cooking for the blog, which is how I got started in the first place.
In the spirit of the seven year itch and mixing things up, we are starting two monthly features for the blog. The first, Our Favorite Things, is a monthly profile of our new finds. We kicked off that series in February.
The second is a little game I like to call the Make It Seasonal Recipe Mashup, or Stump the Chump farmers market style. I led a version of this exercise at a UT Nutrition Club meeting last year to help the students understand how you can adapt a recipe for each season. It was a blast and I thought it would be fun to bring it to you.
Each month, I’m going to become your guinea pig. Readers will vote for three seasonal ingredients and I will create a dish that incorporates all three, sharing the finished recipe to the blog.
So, here we go! Pick 3 seasonal ingredients for March on this survey by Tuesday, March 17th. I’ll create a dish and share the recipe by the end of the month.
Thanks for seven amazing years and cheers to many more!
