What a surprise it was to taste tomatoes this sugary, a vivid reminder that they are in fact berries, not vegetables.
Raw Brussels sprouts and kale leaves may sound like an odd combination for a salad, but these two cabbage-like vegetables are perfect together; since the uncooked leaves hold up well for hours, they're ideal for picnics and making ahead
The salad really does become more flavorful over time, so I like to make it a few hours in advance before serving -- this makes it perfect for a summer picnic or barbecue.
Lighter than yams, easily done ahead and good hot or tepid, roasted sweet squash turns almost candy-like in the oven.
If tomorrow was my last day on earth, I’d request a fresh piece of focaccia dunked in a vat of Scoty’s marinara for my last meal.
