Fish en Papillote on the BBQ Gluten Free Paleo Friendly

I can’t help but admire the gutsiness that is spring. Spring, with its buds pushing through branches and its bright green optimism, signals that it’s time to wake up.

Maggy and I are both getting a little sweaty in the heat of Becky’s Salt Lake City Kitchen.  The tomatoes are roasting, the olives have been pulsed into garlicky, briny, tapenades, and Becky is snapping away as Maggy and I work the dough for our two tomato tarts.

It started as an idea to highlight summer’s best seasonal ingredient (the tomato, duh!), a way for a few food-blogging girl friends to make lunch together, and then Becky (of The Vintage Mixer fame) had to go suggesting we turn this thing into a competition.…

Dear California A Love Letter

Dear California,
