Fava beans made easy peasy.

I’ve been eyeing fava beans at the farmer’s market since they first came around but always refrain from buying them due to the laborious effort involved; blanched and skinned twice. Here’s a great tutorial on how to get to the heart of fava beans. They are worth the work if you have time for it. I was even more excited to find a recipe for grilled fava beans and you can eat the entire bean. Be sure to get the smallest fava beans available so the skin break down while cooking. The spice combo along with anchovies make a mean bean.

I love anchovies more and more.

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
