Lettuce has been in our CSA share every week. And it’s not a little bit – it’s always a big ‘ole head. We’ve also got some in our own garden. As such, salads are a staple. We have side salads nearly every night with dinner – and big, bountiful salads for lunch.
This salad was one I whipped up for dinner one night. Full of produce from our farm share and topped with a homemade dressing, it’s summer in a bowl.
We are knee-deep in strawberry season here and, honestly, it’s one of my favorite food seasons! We’ve already been picking twice, and I’ve put up a batch of jam and a batch of pie filling. We’ve been eating strawberries every day – and I’ve been trying some new strawberry goodies.
These strawberry scones are an adaption of my favorite savory scone recipe. They’re not too sweet, and absolutely perfect with a cup of tea. And, they’re my kick off recipe for this year’s #BrunchWeek!

One of my favorite spring activities is strawberry picking! Ever year, we visit an awesome local farm, load ourselves up on gorgeous betters, and then spend the next week putting them up and making a ton of treats.
These strawberry rhubarb sweet rolls are a favorite – and I always put up extra filling so we can have them in the doldrums of winter, too!
I love pancakes. And my toddler has inherited that love. They used to be something I only made occasionally – on a lazy weekend morning or special occasion – but with Jake requesting them they’ve been in the rotation much more frequently. And, of course, my favorite recipe includes a heavy dose of sugar – and then I slather them in syrup.
Perfect candidate for a recipe makeover!
Instead of sugar, this version is packed with protein – eggs and Greek yogurt make these a great, filling option for the morning. Instead of being slathered with syrup, they’re topped with a compote of fresh strawberries and basil – and just a little honey.
The result is a fresh, filling breakfast that satisfies the pancake cravings in a much healthier fashion.
