Ian and I just spent a beautiful long weekend in California, and I must admit, we ate until we couldn't move. Yesterday I started craving vegetables. Weird, I know. However, this is not completely random (as many things I do are). My family decided to get a farm share from Angelic Organics and the first drop off was last Wednesday, the day before we left! I had two delicious salads with some of the produce before I left and was eager to get home and use the rest of it. So I did!

When my sister came home, she brought this recipe from Pioneer Woman with her (Pioneer Woman: you make me laugh... there are no words.) She insisted that we make these and who am I to say no to chocolate truffles. They are surprisingly easy too. The result was pure chocolatey genius that made everyone happy. Make these as a gift or for no reason. They will all be eaten, I promise.

I'm not sure what my mind block is on making pie. But right now I have one, and I had more rhubarb so I decided to try another recipe for a crisp. I must admit that this one was much better. This recipe is from Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. If you haven't read it, I really suggest checking it out! She and her family eat locally for a year and grow their own food. She makes taking on such a task actually feel normal. They have recipes and neat anecdotes throughout the chapters. She's also hilarious. I have been trying to get most of my food from farmers markets and eating that way instead of grocery shopping. While I definitely couldn't say my diet is based on only local foods, I think that I have made significant progress and I really enjoy trying to eat around my weekly catch.

In the past couple of weeks it has turned warm, my sister visited, and we have started a vegetable garden. It actually feels like summer! I have been cooking a lot, just not blogging... whoops. BUT, I have a couple of awesome recipes that are perfect for days like today. This guacamole recipe was the first recipe I came up with on my own. In college it was a hit and now I love to make it for a warm summer day like today.
