It’s hot over here. I’m guessing the temps are high in your neck of the woods as well. Summer has arrived in all her glory and no one in America wants to fire up their stove for fear of adding even a single degree farenheit to their kitchen. That’s where this salad comes in…just slice cucumbers, add dressing, and keep chilled until you’re ready to serve. It’s great with steamed rice, pot stickers or grilled barbecue chicken. You could also add it to a Bahn Mi type sandwich with rotisserie chicken and shredded carrots on a baguette. It keeps well and transports easily for picnics and impromptu beach trips. Stay cool my friends! Hope you give this one a try!
Who wants to talk about the holidays in January? Yeah…me neither.
But one of the most popular gifts I give is my homemade Organic Madagascar Vanilla Extract and it takes a very long time to cure. In fact, I think it should cure a year or more so the depth of flavor borders on decadence. So here I’ve included everything I use to make mine in hopes that you’ll feel Girl Scout prepared for next season!
First off, let me say these recipes could not be easier. Really. Even if your cooking skills are next to nil, you will have success with these simple and fast syrups. And there’s something so fun about making your own, people think you know fancy tricks in the kitchen.
Which obviously will be our little secret.
