I have a secret weapon. Yes, I do. And since I am feeling very generous – probably because my tummy is full and my tongue is happy – I will share that secret with you.
What do you get with the heat of ginger, the cool of lime, the sweetness of strawberries, the earthiness of spinach, and the crunch of sugar&spice almonds? This salad! A perennial favourite with our family,
One of the trips we took as kids encompassed several of the New England states. Two places made an impact on me: Maine with the fresh lobster and steamed clams, and Vermont with all that maple syrup.
This is a dangerously delicious salad. One of those salads that will tempt you to eat nothing else for dinner. Or at least nibble the ingredients while preparing it, leaving you with no appetite for other food. But the risk is worth taking!
Very few things in this country can claim a 200+ year history, especially one riddled with drama, scandal, and fame. But even though the Old Fashioned has a lengthy and colourful history, it is very new to me.
Springtime. New life. Light evenings. Fresh breezes. Pussy willows. Daffodils. Campfires. And frost boil-jumping. What? Yes, that is one of my favourite activities in the spring.
First of all, I need to say that this dish doesn’t photograph well, but it tastes great. 🙂
I am one of those people who tends to be overly-prepared. There has to be a huge stash of tissues and toilet paper, the pantry should always be overflowing, and there may be more socks in my dresser drawer than at the store.
One of the coolest things is reaching that stage in life when your children become your friends. Parents no longer need to constantly be teaching their kids, but can instead learn a few things from them.
It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and people around the world claim Irish heritage. I love Irish food, but it’s even better when combined with Swedish food. What would that be called? “SwIrish”?
Our family has combined Irish “bangers” with Swedish “rotmos” for many years now.
