The Wednesday Fresh Foods May Round Up

Good morning my friends! And welcome to the (albeit late) Wednesday Fresh Foods May Round Up!
As I mentioned a few days ago, I’ve been a busy little beaver getting my business off the ground so while I do make an effort to swing by to look at everyone’s posts each week, I don’t always get the chance to comment. However, I absolutely value all of your contributions to our weekly link up and that’s what this post is all about – YOU! All our fantastic and gloriously talented good food linker uppers!
The month of May brought us some pretty fabulous posts. From organic veggie hauls, to seasonal harvests, to tasty recipes to fantastic real food exposés – I never get tired of hearing what you’re all up to. And hopefully you never get tired of telling us!
As always, I hope you each take a bit of time when you can to click through to the other linker-uppers contributions and comment on their posts. The entire point of this link up is to make space for real food lovers to connect. I understand we’re all busy and our time is precious – let’s spend a little bit of it making sure everyone knows just how appreciative & appreciated we all are.Now, in no particular order, here are your features for the month of May! Don’t forget – all features get pinned to the Fresh Foods Pinterest Feature Board and I make a strong effort to make sure to Tweet about the features and Facebook update and “like” your pages as well. Here we go!

Join the Community!


If you’re into really good food cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients, drinks with a little somethin’ somethin’ and enjoying what you put in your mouth, this book is for you.


Julia Child famously commented, "I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food . . . ” Kristy Gardner has taken this idea to the next level in Cooking with Cocktails. Every recipe is touched with alcohol; the result is a punchy visual adventure with roots in Italian and French cuisine that demands enjoying meals with passion, with friends, and with alcohol.


Join the celebration of the very best that life has to offer—good friends, good food, good drink and great stories —with humor, delicious and inventive recipes, and mouth-watering photographs for each and every dish!


Cook. Eat. Imbibe. Live. And repeat.
