Celebrate Summer with Kale and Chard Salad with Toasted Pepitas–and Hanging Out with Allyson Kramer

It’s almost Canada Day! For those of you in the land of Mounties, the maple leaf and May Wests, I hope you’re enjoying a fantastic long weekend. Weather here has been ideal, and the HH, the Girls and I have been wandering around local parks:

Green and Yellow Split Pea Salad

When you think of summer, what comes to mind?
