April's National Food Holidays 2012

photo from
Our Featured Tablescape for April
It is April already and we are still in the works of getting a regular schedule going again. In the mean time, we hope that you are enjoying the lovely spring season and your Easter holiday. Here at Saltbox House, we are especially excited to be able to get outdoors and work on the well rested garden! We also look forward to the outdoor dining and pinic season as well.  
It's time to get out and get cooking!
