One of the best things about living in Southern California is the diversity of foods and restaurants. Growing up in PA, my diet was pretty American standard.

Until now, that is. After getting some beautiful fresh turnips in my Farm Fresh to You box recently, I was eager to give the turnip a try.
Inspired by one of my favorite French recipes, I created this incredibly delicious Lavender Chicken Recipe with Asparagus. It’s so fresh and light, and makes the perfect summer or spring dinner idea.

I also love the idea of using this as an Easter brunch or dinner recipe since the beautiful lavender flowers make it as aesthetically pleasing as it does tasty.
