Sweet Sunshine Recipes
Sunny days have returned! Fittingly, this week’s box pays homage to the best spring ingredients—sugar snap peas, pea vines and Tokyo Market turnips—while looking forward to summer with the first of the local strawberries and mixed heirloom tomatoes. Also included: Fresh rye bread, a beautiful French Chenin Blanc and all the ingredients for a gorgeous shortcake dessert with our lemon olive oil cake mix and housemade crème fraîche.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
