This recipe was chosen by Amy, the other half of our marketing specialist team. Wild salmon is an anti-inflammatory food, making it perfect for a meal if you're feeling stressed out or unwell. Plus, who doesn't love the taste of freshly fried greens!

Pure decadence is one way to describe this dish selected by Darby, our administrative assistant. Pears are ready for the market in Texas starting in August, so save this fantastic recipe for a couple months in order to create the best, locally-sourced galette possible.

Making beans at home can be a daunting task for some, but not for our advertising director, Dawn! She loves this recipe from local chef Iliana de la Vega, as it yields rich results. The recipe calls for soaking the beans overnight, so be sure to plan ahead with this one!

This second unforgettable gnocchi recipe was chosen by Jenna, the other half of our awesome pair of publishers. Chef Will Packwood, who specializes in Italian cuisine, provided this recipe so you know it tastes oh-so good. Here's a tip from the chef himself on what to remember as you make the dish: "Cooking is fun and the reason you are making gnocchi is because you love gnocchi and love cooking even more."
