Welcome to Savory Highlights, a post where I feature things that I found interesting throughout the past month. May seems to have blown by quickly. Our garden has been planted, school is almost out for the summer, and I’ve been busy in the kitchen as usual. As always, I am grateful for all the people who share and create such amazing things for us to see and learn from.
