  • Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

    The tulips were breathtaking; vibrant stretching rows of red, purple, yellow and white flowers as far as the eyes can see, sweep into the fields.

  • Almond, Raisin and Basil Soda Bread

    There are a great many variations of soda bread, but this almond, raisin and basil soda bread is the kind I make often, it’s nutty, fruity and herby.

  • ABC Kitchen, New York

    ABC Kitchen espouses the farm-to-table ethos and it shows; the food is excellent, and expertly prepared using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.

  • Lemon and Raisin Oat Scones

    It’s my go-to recipe for homemade scones. I love them for their texture and heartiness; the main ingredients are whole-wheat flour and oats, and a little bit of lemon to brighten them up.
