What is not to love about shallots? They are in my humble opinion much more flavorful than any onion – hands down. They are also more of a “killer” on the eyes in terms of their sting!

It has been freezing in our neck of the woods. When it gets to 4 degrees below zero, that is cold! And unreasonably so for our area. All I can think about is a lovely hot bowl of soup with warm Gluten Free French Bread. Mind you, I [...]

LEMON DILL SAUCE:

You can see a copy of the magazine here. While the magazine’s focus is on wine and spirit pairings with food, it also showcases the new releases of wines and spirits. It is a [...]

(in the picture above, we love to serve salmon with organic garlic scape pesto which I make every [...]
We have diligently been trying to eat a Vegetarian dinner in this household at least twice a week. For me personally, I would never give up meat. However, it does feel good to cut back a few times a week. When it comes to eating Vegetarian – it needs to be hearty! Plus, I am [...]
