September is a great time of year for fresh green beans here in Sacramento. I was too busy to plant them this year, but have been finding beauties at our local market. Usually we just boil them until tender, place a dab of butter on them, sprinkle with salt and pepper and call it a day.
Here’s a quick and easy way to take them up a notch,
One of my favorite recipes from childhood is one for stuffed bell peppers. (We love them so much both my mom and dad have their own versions!) I’ve been experimenting with a quinoa stuffed version and have settled on this one as a great meatless approach to stuffed peppers.
When the nights start getting cooler after a long hot summer, and the leaves show glimpses of turning color, that’s when apple season starts around here. We grow Granny Smith, Gravenstein, Pink Lady, and Fuji apples, all great for making apple pie!
