|Cabbages are Still in Season|
Like last year I’m making some New Veggie/Fruit Year’s goals (otherwise known as resolutions), and invite you to do the same to make your time in the kitchen more fun. Any kinds of foods you’ve been drawn to, wondered about, or wanted to explore lately? New and intriguing cookbooks? Ideas for getting out of the rut of making the same things week after week? Inspirations for conserving more energy around foods and cooking? Family recipes you’d like to make more healthfully? Veggies or fruits you’d like to grow or pick-your-own at a local farm? New sources that that you’d like to post a comment about? Let’s share some resources!

Last year I’d wanted to explore Scandinavian cooking and experiment with the fish and veggie recipes as well as the treats. Since I didn’t do it last year, I’m recommitting to check it out this year. Does anyone have a Scandinavian cookbook that they like to use?

Last year I explored my Polish cooking roots, using an eastern European cookbook and some “cooking from the garden” cookbooks. I’m still looking for a good borscht recipe, and have no idea what my Bopcha (grandmother) used besides beets, perhaps the ubiquitous cabbage? And still have not recreated my other grandmother’s (also Polish) apple cake. The search for Polish culinary wisdom continues!

My last goal for seasonal eating exploration this year is the same as last year: to connect with other locavores and seasonal cooks who strive to use environmentally friendly and sustainable ingredients. Let’s share recipes, gardening tips, and ecologically sound resources!
