Cilantro Salmon with Barley Salad_LYK3

It’s raining! It’s pouring (well, not so much pouring…but for pete’s sake the sky is doing something other than emitting sunshine)! Now our farmers and pocketbooks can be a little more relieved that the price and quality of produce can be a little less inhibited by So Cal’s droughty weather.

If you didn’t know this already, I have a peach addiction, and these muffins help curb the withdrawals. In the summer, if I don’t have my daily peach/nectarine, I might go into beast mode.
