I miss going to open air farmer's markets and listening to vendors share fascinating stories of their produce. I love creating a mental catalog of these intersecting histories when food reaches my table - almost like my own little archaeological study!

The Mexican milpa is an incredible agricultural feat invented by Native communities ... It is a plot that grows mixed crops which combined together both nourish the soil and our bodies. The plants complement each other nutritionally and are more environmentally friendly than industrial agriculture. Although in decline, the milpa is still used throughout Mexico.
The name 3 sisters refers to the 3 main sister crops: maize, beans & squash. Everything about this meal makes me happy ... Mexican traditions, Native knowledge, ecology, sustainable agriculture I could go on forever about the milpa ... I hope y’all enjoy!
Hola a los Mexas que andan por acá ... Aquí hice una receta con las tres hermanas de la milpa. Es un taquito de calabacitas pero tambien le agrego frijoles para darle un reconocimiento a la increíble milpa. Espero que disfruten!
My Happy meal illustration is the place I love to be and the meal I love to eat. A traditional British Ploughman's lunch which consists of fresh crusty bread, local cheeses, homemade chutney, pickled onions, salad and crunchy apple all washed down with a lovely local real ale whilst sat in a the garden of a country pub.
These beans are revolutionary. A crunchy, verdant, salty triad of singing sensory cues. Essentially, the pistachios, lemon, parm get chopped up and mixed together to make a nice pistachio pesto. To that, add a healthy glurg of olive oil and some blanched green beans. Serve with a baguette to sop up the heaven puddle at the bottom of the bowl. And voila!
What I love about oatmeal is that it’s really quick and easy to make, you can customize it with any toppings, and it keeps you full with lots of energy to last your morning! And I love that routine in my morning to have something consistent that I know will make my body feel good.
While I'm not a big sweet tooth, this recipe is definitely my happy meal because this cake always reminds me of my favourite season - summer. It's especially nice if you get the pick the strawberries straight from the garden.
