Happy Friday Friends! I hope everyone had a great week.  Instead of doing a weekly recipe I thought I would post some foodie links that are inspiring me to get in the kitchen and cook.  Last week’s cooler weather reminded me that fall is just around the corner so I feel a particular urgency to cook seasonally.  The Farmer’s Market is simply bursting at the seams with its bounty and  I want to eat it all.  Corn? Tomatoes? Peaches? Chard? Beets? Raspberries? Plums?  Yes please! I invite you to do the same.
