I've created *forgiving martha* as an outlet through which I can gush uninhibitedly about my serious love of cooking & baking and other life happenings.
A native Texan, I spent my childhood riding in beds of pick-up trucks and watching re-runs of I Love Lucy. Here I am now conquering adulthood in Austin. I am particularly smitten with creating things in the kitchen and hope you can enjoy this adventure as I practice my domesticality.
This is a quick and easy dish that looks pretty and tastes fresh. A perfect addition to your blanket for an afternoon picnic. I'm praying this spring weather hangs around for a while on the East Coast. Warm weather food like this make it even more enjoyable.
