Please be creative and don't hold back with great fresh food ideas!

I have no idea what seasonal foods are... it's an area where I'm completely ignorant...

Strawberries in the summer, peaches in the winter? Is that right?

But I do know that chili peppers are great in hot weather because of their cooling properties. In Texas I bet you can get some of the best, spiciest, home-cooked style mexican food.

Absolutely!

In the fall you see people eat stews, with potatoes, carrots beef. Heavy foods. Comfort foods etc. In the Spring however when the sun starts to shine and the april showers arrive people start to see all the colors of the rainbow as it pertains to fresh produce which is far less (root vegetable) centric as in the fall type harvests and foods.

Green Rice

This recipe is outstanding.

A few ingredients stand out: cilantro, lime, garlic, poblano and jalapenos. I would take her advice to heart though and test the hotness of the poblano before adding the jalapeno. You might not need it or need only half instead. Also, when roasting the peppers, make sure they're really charred, otherwise skinning them will be a pain.

Asparagus Risotto.



Mark Bittman recipe adapted from Mario Batali.

It's definitely a good one, although I used 3/4 cup of rice, 1 cup of pinot grigio, and 4 tbsp of butter. I'd also err on the side of more asparagus for the puree. Asparagus puree is surprisingly mild tasting, and if you add too little, the rice just sucks everything up. So, the soupier, the better! Also, timing is an issue for when you add the asparagus pieces: too late and it's raw; too early and it becomes textureless. Obviously, you want to avoid both since the texture of asparagus is half the reason people eat it in the first place.

4 tbsp of butter?

Fatty!
