Caprese Chicken with Fresh Mozzarella

A Tomato Twist!

 

Donna Hay 1

When summer starts to feel like it’s around the corner, my mind always goes to Spring and Summer produce… especially tomatoes!! Come on people….is there really anything better than the taste of a locally farmed summer tomato?? The other thing that motivated this dish was a new book I’ve been reading… this Donna Hay cookbook. Her books always look so vibrant and healthy! This in fact isn’t in her book but I feel it could be! 🙂

One of our first bounties in the Spring are Sweet Peas! I love the bright green colour of them and the giant pods full of beautiful round goodness. I know they say the little ones are the sweetest but I always get a thrill when these giant big fat peas reveal themselves. To me the texture and flavour of these are the best!!

Pea Sup Eggs Canada 1

It’s March break here in Ontario and being a big ski family, for us that usually means a week at the cottage skiing! There really isn’t anything better than those Spring ski days. We wait all year for them. Warm, sunny days that make us feel closer to nature and happy to the core. We call them Blue Bird Days! Well, this year it’s warm alright, so warm that it’s raining and the snow has pretty well vanished. Which leaves us more excited for Easter! It’s early this year which could have meant a very wintery looking Spring holiday but luckily it looks like my favorite holiday will be as I imagined, full of colour and the hopeful anticipation of summer to come!
