This mild Spring in the Pacific Northwest has us already enjoying all the foods we love from the garden and the sea. Salmon is a staple here because we have easy access to fresh, wild-caught varietals for many months of the year. Although there are endless ways to prepare this fish, we like a simple recipe so it enhances rather than masks the delicious fresh flavors. This salmon recipe is just 3 ingredients (and salt & pepper).

Serving Your Delicious Salmon
We love to choose other things that are fresh and simple—especially in this optimal harvest season, let the the natural flavors of good food shine through! We made a simple wild greens salad with heirloom tomatoes and good olive oil. Local crusty bread with butter. Our sweet potatoes fries recipe is below = bonus*.
Remember to treat any meal as special and use your beautiful dishes - our glass serverware and dinnerware are all hand-washable and meant to be enjoyed!

Sweet Potato Fries
Savory, Easy Tomato & Mushroom Soup
If you grew tomatoes this year, you know it's that time when it takes more than some salads and sandwiches to use the massive harvest that's happening within the last few weeks (up here in the Pacific Northwest anyway!). Fresh tomatoes in a bowl on the counter is a favorite sight, and it gets our cook's creativity flowing.
Tomato Soup is always on our list because it's so simple and only takes a few ingredients to make it delicious. We decided to also add mushrooms this time because it feels like Fall this week and it makes the soup slightly heartier.
Our simple recipe follows and please leave comments on how yours turns out, or if you want to add your own variations on Tomato Soup or any other tomato recipes!
Serve with some crumbled feta or goat cheese on top and some side crackers. Enjoy!
