This wasn’t supposed to be today. No – today was supposed to be a two-part dessert to use up our fruiting meyer lemon tree. Then sometimes things just happen. Things like your fall wardrobe barely fitting coupled with the realization that the last three recipes you’ve shared were desserts. And as you photograph ice cream sandwiches and cupcakes, you start to believe it’s possible you’ve only eaten sweets for a month straight.
While it may seem I survive on sugar and fruit – and that was probably true for most of high school – I promise that’s not what’s going on here. We eat cheese too. Buttery melt-in-your mouth burrata cheese dotted over caprese fettuccine with roasted heirloom tomatoes, spiced Italian chicken sausage, and a bundle of wilted spinach tossed in.
