Pairing carrots with my favorite flavors of ginger and cumin – I made a hearty soup with the addition of lentils. This is dairy free, gluten free, nutritious, and suitable for both vegans and vegetarians. Pair this with a healthy salad for a fine plant based lunch. Try it!
Short Ribs are one of my favorite meals. I usually make them on a special occasions. And with two snow storms behind us and one looming in our future I think three snow storms in April constitutes something special.
It is a long standing tradition in Europe to give a gift of preserves – especially marmalade during the holiday season. We have had a number of customers from the British isles tell us that they are sure to buy a “special pot” every year and some insist on saving it for breakfast on Christmas, Boxing Day or New Years day to welcome in the New Year.
I have made this food processor pie crust since I was in college – tweaking it thru the years. It’s just as easy to make two crusts as one, so my general recommendation is to make two as the dough freezes well. Having the dough on hand for a impromptu fruit tart or quiche is always nice.
We purchased a house off Shinnecock Bay on Long Island half a lifetime ago. The house was recommended to us by a friend in the dead of winter. You could barely see the formal flower beds but the fruit trees and the Long Island cedars soared over the cover of burlap and snow. The house itself was not even open for us to see. It was small and clearly an accessory to the garden. We were told it was “quite the find”….and yes, I have to say it was.
