When I was growing up, my mom served meat and potatoes nearly every night. Our vegetable was peas or cooked carrots, and once a week or so we had an iceberg lettuce salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and carrots with dressing from a bottle. So I don’t really know how I developed a taste for complex flavors. But I grow — and cook with — a lot of garlic, and find it adds depth and intensity to soups and stews. Now is the time to plant some for next year.

We accept many different kinds of announcements. Just click on the button below and submit a form.
