Spring is hands down my favorite time of the year. The most amazing things come from spring. If given my choice we would all pick up and move to Marin/Bodega where it feels like it is perpetually spring. In fact I believe (right or wrong, I care not) that all good things come from spring. Right now the good things that are coming from our home are flowers, lots and lots of flowers, all things strawberry and every kind of salad imaginable (one of the best parts of spring is that I get to force all kinds of vegetables on my family, they love it, I swear). Here a few of my favorite uses for strawberries: jam (I always add vanilla bean or champagne to my strawberry jam and I use a low sugar recipe so that flavor of the fruit shines), scones, muffins and one of my all time favorite salads.
Hopefully you can find something to revel in this spring. And if you are lucky it just might be strawberries!
Filter Free Zone
Everything is put through a filter before it gets to us these days. This will be a space where photos will be unfiltered, simple projects will be showcased and more difficult ones will not be portrayed as things that only took a few minutes. This will be a place where I show in photos and short posts some of the things that inspire my family and business. I hope that you will be inspired to try something different!
