Simple Kitchen Seasons


Recommended Posts

A little history for folks:

My blog began life as a personal journal back in 2006. I talked about LGBT rights, U.S. Supreme Court cases and occasionally, the adventures of the second Bush administration. There were, unfortunately, not very many posts about food. In 2008, I decided to transform my corner of the Internet into a foodblog and the result is what you see today.






Seasonality is important to me. It frames the rhythms of our lives. We are in a more perfect harmony with nature when we are attuned to the beauty of the world around us, as reflected by the passage of time and in the food we eat.







This is the story of Simple Kitchen Seasons, a food blog devoted to the beauty of food, cooking seasonally and eating well. Most of the recipes are fairly simple, uncomplicated dishes that anyone can make. Many are vegetarian or vegan. Some are gluten-free. All feature produce sourced directly from farmers markets in New York City.
