Cooking inspiration runs a little slim this time of year when I see the garden begin to grow, but there's nothing to pick save for kale, chives and tulips. But being forced to dig a little deeper isn't a terrible thing. This week, inspiration came . . .
. . . from a a conversation with my mother. She served fish cakes this week and that sounded good. These are salmon and potato cakes, waiting to be dredged in flour and pan fried.
. . . from a library cook book. This kale panini with feta cheese and zippy banana peppers is sure to appear on our table again.
. . . from the pantry. There's nothing like cracking open a jar of last summer's tomato-y goodness to enjoy over pasta.
And finally, inspiration came from a string of sunny days and a few spring showers -- reminders that the abundance of summer will come soon enough.
