A couple of days ago, I went out to a berry farm on Long Island and picked about a pound of peak-season raspberries right off the bushes! It was a fun and rewarding experience, as was making a fresh raspberry vinaigrette, tossed over a bed of beets and beet greens I bought from the union square farmers market yesterday…

I was strolling around the Union Square Farmers Market the other day, and came across some freshly picked zucchini and fresh garlic and knew I had to make something special – to celebrate their supreme freshness and all it’s glory!!

So apparently my drivers license has been suspended, and after being pulled over for speeding on the back roads of Arkansas, I was cuffed and escorted to the local jail, cooped up in a cold cell with another inmate, Joe. Nice guy… Anyway, at the end of the day yesterday, I was craving some comfort food.

We made a stop in St. Louis to hang with our good friend Lara, who shared her beautiful vegetables from her organic farm with us.  I climbed her Elderberry tree, and picked some beautifully plump, ripe berries and feasted on them. She offered us some oregano from her garden, and we gladly accepted! Thank you for being so awesome, Lara!
