Picking fruit in the desert in the dead of summer? Crazy, right? That’s what I thought, too. Prickly pear fruit are abundant in the Phoenix desert and ready for the picking. The reward of a prickly pear margarita at the end of a harvest was a great summertime surprise!
Lentil soup with veggies and pasta is so easy to make and this version takes kindly to substitutions. Now that I have a recipe in hand I’m hooked!
I love to bake. It’s creative and process-oriented, and you have to be precise with your ingredients otherwise there’s no telling what you’ll end up with. Fortunately, the day I made these, I was level-handed and the result was this batch of amazing blueberry mint hand pies.
I love pesto, my husband doesn’t. Our taste in most foods is pretty similar, but for some reason, dinnertime is when we come up with our disagreements. When we discovered pesto could be made with arugula, our pesto posturing ended.
