Orzo Salad with Watermelon & Feta

Natasha here! If you follow my blog at all, you know that I love eating seasonally. It’s something I have been growing in the more I learn about food.

Early Spring Veggie Egg Bake


Spring is here and all the signs of its splendor are welcomed with open arms. The bulbs are pushing up through cold, dark earth. The trees are pink with their cotton-candy blooms and the rains come and go, quenching the land and making us feel as if the best place on earth is by the window wrapped in a well-loved quilt, hot cup of tea in hand.

It is easy this time a year to get a little too excited about all the spring bounty to then come crashing down when you pop over to your farmers market. Spring is here, but only barely and though we have some new baby greens peeking out, spring onions and green garlic of course is here, mostly it’s our winter veggies that are still at the harvest; after all things need a chance to grow!
