While I’ve been subsisting off brothy, meaty soups (obviously comforting in freezing temps), I’m searching for something a little brighter. This soup is just hearty enough for a cold night, but has the freshness of Springtime – or more specifically, Spring weather – is hopefully just around the corner.
Lemons are my all-time favorite staple. There’s not a moment I don’t have a large supply of lemons on hand, for dressings to lemon water and every meal in between. Meyer lemons are more sweet & aromatic than the average lemon, making this tart dessert even more charming.
I don’t have a lot of “food memories” from my childhood. I didn’t have a grandmother who taught me her famous pie crust, or a mother who made fresh pasta every week. There wasn’t that kind of connection to food, or as far as I can remember. We were average, like most – just trying to feed ourselves well enough.
For so long there was not much to cook with & now I’m almost overwhelmed by the amazing selection. Between my farmer’s market box, & leftovers from shoots, I somehow have gone through about 5lbs of ramps. I still have two bunches in my fridge, casually haunting me.
They feel like the perfect everyday treat & something you could throw together on a slow afternoon with almost no planning. That’s my favorite way to bake – on a whim when I miraculously have all the ingredients I need.
