The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters is one of my favorite cookbooks. Flipping through the pages for inspiration, her creations are not overly complicated and give you dishes where the simple flavors shine through. Using local and seasonal ingredients is the core of this book, and you can’t get more local then pulling basil leaves off the plants sitting on your deck or in your backyard.

Morgan and I visited the Farmers Market in Daley Plaza last week for one of the final times this year. We both work downtown and you can often find us at this farmers market on Thursday during our lunch break, if my crazy schedule permits. I love this farmers market because it allows me to stock up at the end of the week for the weekend of cooking ahead. This farmers market sadly ends on October 18th, however that means it’s almost time to switch to the Indoor Market in Logan Square.
