Fresh summer tomatoes are one of my favorite ingredients to cook with.  When we have visited Europe you see most menus cater to what is in season.  You don’t see artichokes in October or root vegetables in the spring.  In the US we definitely are […]

Baby it’s cold outside!  And I mean really freaking cold!  I think we went from an Indian Summer to straight up sub Arctic temperatures.  When I woke up the other morning the temperature was four.  FOUR degrees.  Not only was it four degrees it then said […]
