Herb Oils

Herb Oils

One of the best ways to preserve the abundance of fresh herbs from your garden is by making flavored oils. Herb oils can be enjoyed so many ways – drizzled over salads, vegetables, pastas, sandwiches, or grilled items, hot or cold or at room temperature. Not only are they flavorful, but they also add dramatic […]

Cookies

Cookies

When making cookies make sure not to overcream the butter and sugar. Unlike cake batter baked in a pan, cookie dough is baked free-form. When the dough is heated and the chemical leaveners expand the air bubbles, the bubbles burst without a pan to force the dough upward, producing flat cookies. For cookies, cream the […]

Melting Cheeses

Melting Cheeses

I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love the taste of melted cheese. Not every cheese oozes the same way. Some just melt better than others. When it comes to classic cheesy dishes, you want a cheese that’s going to melt into something creamy and smooth with a strong flavor. Basically, the more moisture […]

Bread And Cherries

Bread And Cherries

Bread And Cherries “Cherries, ripe cherries!” The old woman cried, In her snowy white apron And basket beside; And the little boys came, Eyes shining, cheeks red, To buy bags of cherries To eat with their bread.

Dressing & Stuffing

Dressing & Stuffing

Dressing & Stuffing I get asked this question every year about this time, “what’s the difference between dressing and stuffing?” The answer is that if you live north of the Mason-Dixon line, you probably call this side dish, baked inside a turkey, stuffing. If you’re a Southerner, you probably call it dressing. In classic cooking, […]
