Enjoy the Flavor and Ease of Eating Fresh, Local Foods

First tomato of the season from my tomato plant. Delicious!

One of the fastest ways to “cook it quick” is to eat fresh, local foods in season. Flavor is at its peak and little or no additional “cooking” is needed. Often, all you need to do is: Slice! Eat! Enjoy!

Whether it comes from your garden, grocery store, or farmers market, it will be “simple”- ly good!
