Ah, gravy. The rich brown sauce that honestly most people could just drink straight, but manners require us to serve it on top of comfort foods such as mashed potatoes, roast poultry, stuffing, etc. The tricky part is what texture you like – if you prefer yours thinner or thicker, you’ll have to play with how much juices/stock you use, and the cooking time. Don’t worry – there’s really no such thing as a bad gravy.
Classic Ethiopian stew combining aromatic, warm spices, chicken, and eggs – wonderfully satisfying to cook as it fills your home with exotic fragrances, and a fantastic filling meal. Good-looking too!
Sometimes the simplest dinner is best.
Once the definitive American dessert, and still a classic for the fresh flavorful apples of autumn, take your pie to the next level by using my Apple Pie Spice for rich warm flavor and aroma. A wonderful treat any time of year, and easy to make!
A staple of autumn, rich earthy and aromatic, and a treat before during or after the holidays… and it’s easy to make with fragrant and warm Pumpkin Pie Spice – hope you enjoy!
Ah, pickles… the quintessential sour-savory treat, a topping for burgers and sandwiches, a side, a snack… a way of life. And so easy to make!
Something a little lighter, with the distinctive herbaceous flavor of tarragon enriching a cream sauce – subtle and delicious, and pretty easy to make!
Bright, tangy, herbaceous flavor complements dark meats such as beef and lamb particularly well, especially in summertime dishes for quick easy grilling. This recipe is a simple marinade for awesome steaks or chops with a “green” healthy flavor and aroma.
I’m very proud of my Crab & Shrimp Boil – amazing how such a quick dish, nothing more than boiling some water, can result in such a full flavor, as if grilled. Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce (like sour cream and Herbes de Provence, or mayo with Cajun Seasoning).
