It’s spring! Well actually, this week it feels more like SUMMER!
And that means lots of fun culinary delights coming out of the urban homestead’s kitchen.
Combining edible flower, herbs and butter for a delightful treat to slather on biscuits or smother veggies.

Growing Closer to Home
Oh, and here’s what one of the chefs had to say about the upcoming Food Network episode:
“On this week’s episode Chef Brian & I got a much needed lesson in how to make good with what we got. We were invited to prepare a meal using ONLY ingredients found on the Dervaes family’s Urban Homestead for potential buyers of their products from Whole Foods & Bristol Farms.
I can’t use any of my cooking tools (ie NO L…e Creuset even… yikes) & we’re “off the grid” tune in this Friday 5/7/10 at 10 pm EST to see how we did.
It was seriously one of the hardest yet most rewarding experience of my life! can’t WAIT to share this episode with you all & I hope the message resonates with the rest of America & we can take off from this INCREDIBLE family’s lead.”
