It’s spring, and that means flowers. I love love love eating them. We’re on a farm now! We’re surrounded by edible flowers, and gradually I’m learning their names and which ones we can eat.

Megan Breakfast, Hors d'oeuvres, Condiments & Sides, Whole Food Recipes 7 Comments

I first made parsnip hashbrowns by accident. I didn’t know that the starches in parsnips caramelize and brown better than potatoes. I left grated parsnips frying over low heat. When I came back and flipped them, my jaw dropped. Ha! I had struck gold without even looking for it. After that mesmerizing moment and the meal that followed I tried …

One of the greatest allures of the Instant Pot is not just the ease with which it produces soups and stews, but its ability to make puddings, breads and yogurts.
