As some of you may know, my dad is continually bringing me fresh produce from his garden (as I mentioned in this post). I'm constantly trying to be creative with my use of these ingredients because my dad delivers them by the ton! A few days ago I was at his house to photograph some of the gorgeous fruits, veggies, and grains and to start thinking of new recipes!
Wouldn't the seeds from the sunflowers be scrumptious on these Tejas?
This speckled hound pumpkin seems
kind of shy hiding behind a vine:
I'd love to try my hand at creating
this earthy harvest pumpkin soup:
I use fresh lemons constantly while cooking, and it is nice to have a steady supply from my father's tree. I use the juice as a flavoring agent and I have been known to use the zest for baking cookies:
A flawless lemonade recipe is
something everyone should know:
Vine ripened figs:
A simple yet nourishing breakfast of
yogurt, honey, fresh figs, and granola.
Served with a moscato cocktail:
Fuyu persimmons that will be ripe by my
birthday at the beginning of November:
Should I make these persimmon
cupcakes for my birthday?
Anyone have any idea what I should do with these Turks Turbans? Yeah, that is what they are actually called. I have a metric ton of them (I swear!) and I have no idea what to do with them all!
P.S. I'm in Napa today, I'll try and take some great photos to share!
