Every week I bring you seasonal recipes – dishes I’ve made using what’s in season. Since I’m on the East coast, what’s in season for me isn’t necessarily what’s in season for all of my readers.

A couple of weeks ago I told you that Kitchen Gardeners International was asking you to Declare your Food Independence by eating by example – eating locally this July 4th. They are also on a mission to get each of America's governors and their families to do the same.

Here at MNN this idea has gone over so well that we’ve got local recipes for all 50 states for you. We’ve also got the menus for many of the governors' families 4th of July feasts. Click here, find your state and discover a recipe that you can make with what’s in season, right now.
