Well, as you might expect, there is not much in season during the cold month of Janurary in Utah. Technically it is a dormant month but there is a variety of produce that is available from resources near to Utah. What we do have in Utah right now is a season of enjoying good movies… Sundance is almost here and I’ll be posting soon about how to best enjoy the film festival as a local! But while you’re not watching movies this month here are a few ingredients that are in season as well as some recipes to make with them. Enjoy!

Love this idea of incorporating the local food bloggers! You're super smart, so nice and so cute *wink But seriously, love this wallpaper. I'm downloading it now, for the first time!
Beautiful wallpaper! I love grapefruit season:)
Yes, we are dependent on our neighboring states this time of year for sure! Thanks for including me!
I'm going to make a big effort this year to eat more fruits and veggies, so I'll definitely keep your seasonal produce list in mind. Thanks!
I love these recipe links. I am checking out the black bean and sweet 'tater taco now! I anxiously await your Sundance posts!
I always love these – and thanks for including my recipe! 🙂
Grapefruit is so beautiful. Great round-up of recipes and thanks for including my chestnut cake. It was a beast, but oh-so delicious.
We've got some good ingredients to work with this month, don't we.
I just made a grapefruit poppy seed loaf last night. Can't wait to share it on my blog next week!
