Sue Z.’s Finds

As you’re gearing up for summertime celebrations, be sure to add Amy Peterson’s Lollicakes from The Dipp Shop to your list (thedippshop.com). There’s no brick-and-mortar store yet, but the delicious, adorable cake pops can be shipped anywhere.

For healthy eats, it doesn’t get much tastier than pea shoots, gourmet micro greens, kale, chard, and spinach from Karla Pankow and Elizabeth Millard’s Bossy Acres  farm (bossyacres.com). Stock up at Linden Hills Co-op (3815 Sunnyside Ave., Mpls., lindenhills.coop).

The Mill City Farmers Market opens May 12 with local cookbook authors Brenda Langton (Spoonriver Cookbook), Kim Ode (Rhubarb Renaissance), Tricia Cornell (Eat More Vegetables), and Brett Laidlaw (Trout Caviar) signing their books. You can also support local honey producers by adding St. Paul’s Bare Honey chile-infused hot honey to your recipes for a healthy smooth kick (barehoney.com).

Sue Zelickson is the founder and director of Women Who Really Cook and Perspectives Family Center’s Kids Cafe. She is the former host of WCCO Radio’s Food for Thought.
