The Non Cooking Bride

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is to go to the Alemany Farmer's Market. This is the best place in San Francisco to purchase organic and locally grown produce for a fraction of what you would pay at Wholefoods (aka whole pay check). I stopped by here last Saturday to pick up some groceries for Easter dinner.  As I mentioned and demonstrated in a previous blog post I do not really cook. What I do instead is prep, cut and assemble. If I lived in a smaller apartment and if I were single I think I would store shoes in my stove instead of using it to "cook" food. I must admit I occasionally like to use my oven to roast veggies -but I could probably accomplish this on a toaster oven.  Luckily for me my friends and husband understand my cooking deficits so when we have dinner parties they bring the main course and I happily create the sides. Below are some of the dishes I made (aka cut and assembled) for our Easter potluck dinner.

Alemany Farmer's Market Produce
Blood Orange & Blood Lime Salad. Brush some extra virgin olive oil on the oranges, add pepper, sliced red onions, capers, and feta cheese.

Heirloom tomato salad with sliced smoked mozzarella and basil. Add some pepper and a sprinkle of kosher salt.

Strawberries are in season right now so instead of tomatoes add strawberries to your salad.

Baked fingerling potatoes with saffron and lemon rind. 

White Covered Chocolate Strawberries. I heated the chocolate in the microwave. Find the simple recipe here
