I’m a writer, yoga teacher, tutor, mom of two, wife to a grown-up (sort of), and best friend to a dog.  I love markets at home and abroad, but half the time I don’t know what to do with what I’ve purchased.

One part encyclopedia, one part cookbook, hopefully what you’ll find here are new foods to try, new ways to try them, or at least a way to figure out what you brought home last Sunday!  And if I don’t know, maybe you can help me…

Keep in mind that I do live in Los Angeles, so my growing season is longer and my access to cold weather fruits and veggies is more limited, but I’d love to investigate any finds you may have!  I’m not a photographer and not a professional cook by any stretch of the imagination; I just like my fruits and veggies.
