As a non-baker, you know I love that.  Read the rest of this entry »

Get Ready for the Elite 8!

As expected, the delicious, citrus-y clementine proved victorious over brussels sprouts – 59% to 41%

Take a small breather! We’re taking a tiny break from March Madness right before the Elite 8 begins! The match-up between spring will take place on Monday, March 28, and the other seasonal match-ups will take place every day after that. Then spring will go up against fall, and summer will face off against winter on April 1. You’ll have the whole weekend to vote on the produce item you want to be in the championship. The two final items will battle on April 4, and a winner will be chosen on April 7!

Are you ready for the craziness of March Produce Madness?
