Local makes a difference..

Hello Readers and Happy Monday!

As you may know already, especially if you read my blog often I am super passionate about utilizing local ingredients and supporting out local farms. This year I discovered Nourse Farm and since then all of the produce I use for my services is sourced from here. The photos above are russet potato used for the garlic chive mash, and butternut squash used for our vegans butternut squash soup for his years Thanksgiving side dish sale.

The flavor of their products was so naturally rich I was able to use less salt than usual! My advice is to utilize your local farms with whatever ingredients you can until they shut down for the winter. It will make a difference in your cooking, and provide your body with a more nutrient dense fuel!

Thanks for reading, until next time, Cheers!


Client testimonial

October is the season of giving thanks for everything from the moment we open our eyes we are thankful to God for letting us see the sunlight and the fall foliage displaying its colors: dark maroon, mustard yellow, bright orange, brown green, ever green and soft almond color on the edges of a big maple leaf.

The scent of cinnamon, cloves, star anise, nutmeg and all spice welcome the season of giving thanks. Our palate is reminded once again that the great Thanksgiving dinner is near. Pumpkin, squashes of all kinds, broccoli and apples become our staple. As our laborious mothers hand’s become busy and arduous they transform into chemist tasting, testing and modifying recipes we begin to think is there another way to cook this turkey? 

 I recently tasted a home made apple cake that Mayari baked from left over apples from apple picking. My, my, I was happy! Every bite was soft moist and fragrant. Small pieces of juicy and crispy Macintosh apples delighted my olfactory sent. Honestly I thought: “This is going to taste like a fruit cake,” but it didn’t.  In fact I will add this recipe to my family’s thanksgiving dinner.

Sugar Cookies

Hello Readers and Happy Tuesday!

Tis the season of sweets, left over candies, and cookies!

Some of my favorite cookies to make are sugar cookies. They are versatile, easy to gift to others and the dough can be refrigerated for up to a week; making sugar cookies a great cookie to have on hand.

Sugar cookies can easily be infused with more flavor by adding spices, and citrus zests. The cookies below were rolled in cinnamon sugar adding warmth to these buttery favorites.
