Learn what's in season this month at cookieandkate.com!

February is here! If you bookmarked any hearty soups and stews that you haven’t gotten to try yet, this is the month to make them. In just four weeks, March and glimmers of spring will greet us. This butternut squash mac and cheese has been our go-to dinner lately, and I’m so delighted by your feedback on it!

It’s been terribly cold here in Kansas City. We’re planning a trip to Maui to warm up—any suggestions on where to eat or what to do with a toddler?

Here are more seasonal recipes to enjoy this month with winter produce. I have more recipes photographed and almost ready to share with you, so stay tuned.

This amazing Mexican green salad recipe is the perfect healthy side for your favorite Mexican dishes! Get the recipe at cookieandkate.com

Mexican Green Salad with Jalapeño-Cilantro Dressing

Gluten free and easily vegan

“This Mexican salad is absolutely delicious! The dressing is to die for. Even my 26 year old son who is not a big salad eater really enjoyed it and even took some home with him. He especially liked the dressing. I added two cups of cooked quinoa to make it a little more filling as well as some fresh corn I needed to use up. I have been eating it all week for lunch and it is just perfect. I used a rather large jalapeno but removed the seeds etc and the dressing is not too spicy but has a little kick to it.” – Annika

Blood Orange, Fennel and Avocado Salad with Lemon Citronette

“I take back all the nasty things I’ve ever said about fennel! I braised a bulb with some carrots the other day, and had one bulb left sitting sadly in my crisper drawer. A stray blood orange was living in the drawer below, and I needed to use up some salad greens. This was wonderful, and hubby especially loved it. We served it with some wonderful grilled chicken. I’m thrilled to now welcome fennel to my repertoire. Looking forward to your cookbook!” – Debra

healthy potato wedges recipe

Ultra Crispy Baked Potato Wedges

Gluten free and vegan

“Kate! These crispy baked potato wedges are the new food love of my life! Seriously! They are better than any deep fried french fries or oven baked fries I’ve ever had. Soaking the potatoes in hot water is the secret of all secrets in achieving the perfect crispiness on the outside while keeping the insides soft…exactly what everyone wants in a french fry. I used avocado oil, which has a high smoking point and they were to die for! Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes. Love your blog :)” – Suzette

Based on our taste preferences, I eliminated the hummus and planned on using smashed avocado instead but forgot and just went with the lettuce, soba, and pickled veggies and it turned out fantastic!” – Erin
