It’s #nectarine season! Find them from now until the end of August at your local grocery store or farmer's market. They taste delicious AND provide important nutrients like vitamin C and potassium.

Celery is more than just a snack food! Turn it into a side dish by braising stalks on the stovetop. All you need is a pan with a lid! Which vegetable are you having with dinner tonight? #celery #staroftheweek ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for the great idea & recipe!

Wrap celery in aluminum foil, not a plastic bag, to keep fresh for 2-3 weeks! Keeping celery in a bag traps the gas that celery produces as it ripens and then causes it to overripen. Foil allows that gas to escape while keeping the celery crisp and fresh. ... See MoreSee Less

Roasted #garlic can elevate any dish and couldn't be more affordable. Add it to a piece of bread for a snack or mix it with a vinaigrette for a powerful salad dressing. Maybe eat them straight?! Pop the cloves out of the head and they will stay fresh in an airtight container for 3 months in the fridge. #NationalGarlicDay ... See MoreSee Less

Lettuce doesn’t always have to be the base of a salad. Add larger pieces of veggies like tomato and cucumbers to build a heartier salad. Fattoush Salad is a common dish in the Mediterranean and Middle East, try it one day before sunrise or after sundown to join the Ramadan celebration. #FattoushSalad​

Ooooh! That looks good!

You know how celery gets soft and delicious in soups? Well, you can make it just as delicious without cooking soup! Add it on top of marinated chicken and fish for extra flavor. It is also a great way to get your little ones used to the flavor of celery since this veggie has a milder taste when it's cooked. #celery #staroftheweek ... See MoreSee Less

This sounds so tasty! Ramps are just starting to come up in my area so I’m looking forward to having a new recipe to try with them.

Watching from VT, welcome chef! Excited for this!

Look at how nice and lean that bison fried up..almost no extra fat! Beautiful.

I really enjoyed watching Chef Francisco Alegria!Super job.I thought this would be just another cooking video. But, I was most impressed by the level of skills, knowledge, and talent that he brought.I was extremely amazed by the way he teaches how to use food from the land and where to find them.So, every one no matter where you live, you can harvest what may be local to your area. Or at the very least locate seasonal fresh foods at your store, instead of buying processed foods.I loved that the postal & mortar are made from white birch & mahogany.Thank you for this class.

Thank you Chef and USDA and Menominee Food Distribution! Well done.

Show a close up of how beautiful the local rice is!!

Today, our guest is Chef Francisco Alegria from the Menominee Indian Reservation

Everything from the 90s is making a comeback and so are the afterschool snacks!

This is how I do my carrots for salads so I'm not bighting down on hard carrots.

DYK a stick of celery can be great for teething toddlers? Introduce raw celery between ages 2-3 and use a long cold stick of celery to help reach where the back molars come in! #DYK #staroftheweek ... See MoreSee Less

Today is the first day of Ramadan - a 30-day Muslim holiday which involves fasting from sunrise to sunset. Hearty lentil soup is a classic dinner consumed during Ramadan, to help those who fast during the day get nourished at night. #Ramadan #RamadanKareem www.allrecipes.com/recipe/12960/moroccan-lentil-soup/ ...

Is arugula too bitter for you? Try cutting the bitterness with lemon juice and oil, or picking younger greens if you grow them at home (a great cost-saving activity for herbs and greens!). For a fun activitiy with kids, have them help you "massage" the greens before adding them to your salads, pasta, and more! Then give each other a back massage to reward each other for a kitchen job well done! ... See MoreSee Less

Make this classic restaurant dish at home! It’s super simple and you probably have 3 of the 4 ingredients in your pantry already! Chinese Five Spice is another ingredient you can add to kick up the flavor - check your local ethnic foods store or the ethnic foods aisle of your local grocery store. Make a homemade dipping sauce with it too if you like! www.chinasichuanfood.com/chinese-scallion-pancakes/ ... See MoreSee Less

sounds good but 577 calories for two seems like a lot

The way you cook #asparagus can change everything. Add a little char by roasting them. It adds a great crunch to the tops! ... See MoreSee Less

Roasted asparagus is the BEST!

No way. Doing this on a grill is much better.

My favorite way to cook asparagus (after removing the scales) steam them in the micro..add or splash a little soy sauce, butter & a little brown sugar! DIVINE.

Awesome!

Yummy
