Get Cookin’ Thursdays!


Spring is here and it’s time  for more interesting salads! Everything is so fresh and beautiful right now! This week we went for page 183 of La Tartine Gourmande: Arugula salad with beets, radishes, shaved fennel and feta cheese. So satisfying and nutritious! We weren’t able to find any fresh hazelnuts, but it didn’t hurt the final result one bit. And fennel is always great in a salad. Yum!

I am also very excited about a fruit I didn’t know existed (one of my favorite things) until a couple of days ago: Champagne Mangoes. We just ate our first one just now. I would have posted a pic but I just couldn’t wait. It was SO delicious!!! It had a much more delicate flavor than the common mangoes you always see around. Damen picked it up from the grocery store the other night on a whim. What a delightful discovery. Thanks babe!!!

I hope you’re cookin’ something delightful in your kitchen tonight. Happy Thursday to you and thanks for reading!
