What to Cook in April: A Produce Guide

Here’s your April┬áproduce guide! I have rounded up several recipes to give you inspiration on what to cook with that produce.

April Produce Guide - what's in season + recipe ideas

Happy spring, everyone! The weather sure is warming up here in Sacramento, and I’m seeing some beautiful wildflowers in bloom here in Sacramento.

This weekend has been about recuperating and giving my body a bit of TLC. I threw out my back exercising (AGAIN!), and standing or sitting for long periods of time has been a bit of a struggle. Things are slowly on the mend, but the moral of the story is that I need to be a lot more careful when I exercise. I’m not in my 20s anymore and my body just doesn’t heal the same way that it used to!

Anyway, I have rounded up some of my great┬árecipes for this month’s produce guide. Hope you enjoy!
