Foods of the Moment: Spring Food Finds

[Thank you so much for all the well wishes on my announcement on Wednesday! You all are so kind.]

Spring brings lots of newness! Fresh buds on the trees, beautiful flowers from the garden, and my favorite…LOTS OF NEW FOODS!

Ever since I broke my ‘bean baking’ virginity with these Ginger Spiced Bean cookies, I have been scratching my head looking for an opportunity to do some more experimenting.
