Searching for Seasonal

One of the great advantages of living in a place so full of great produce is that you can get some amazing fruits and vegetables. The problem is that you need to be able to pick what will be best.

Now, figuring that out has never been one of my strengths. I mostly had to make that decision based on price and quality. Now, thanks to Stauffers, I found this amazing little chart. SeasonalMany of the grocery stores have been pushing hard to let everyone know that their providers are all local. In this case, they built a page http://www.skh.com/supermarketdepartmentsgrown-local describing what grows where and when things are best.

Enjoy the chart!

*Guest Post* Roasting a Turkey 101

This year, we are pleased to share this post with all the Nutty Food Lover readers our Go-To post for Roasting a Turkey. Over the course of years, both Seth and us (Helga and Kitty) started our own food blogs – based in Guatemala, and often shared tips and recipes on our Twitter accounts or Facebook pages.

The Foodies’ Kitchen is a blog that not only helps us to broaden our recipe book but also share all the recipes (along with some of our own!) with all the foodies from around the world. We believe that you do not need expensive or sophisticated ingredients to create a great dish, so what you will find in our blog are recipes that we have tested in our kitchens which we have collected from food magazines, TV shows, food websites, cookbooks, and even our own original concoctions.

We have recipes that range from quick and easy for when you have 30 minutes (and sometimes less) to get food on the table, to fantastic meals for that special dinner, healthy and not so healthy… but delicious recipes.

We hope that you enjoy this post which includes general guidelines for roasting a turkey which we got from Williams-Sonoma and Epicurious’ websites. We’ve added some of our own comments as well.
Happy Thanksgiving!
