British Scones Recipe: #Recipe

Aw, there’s nothing quite as special as a good British Scones recipe. It’s a love affair that came from my very first time visiting my brother in England. We had gone to Wisley Gardens for high tea. There we were served a traditional “cream tea” which consisted of scones, clotted cream, jam and, of...

These Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs are the simplest thing ever. It is such a beautiful hors d’oeuvre, and it tastes as good as it looks. I love it; figs are in season and boy are they ever good. When they’re in season, I buy a bunch to make my fig jam. Aside from that, there are so many things that...

Pie Crust Recipe By Susan: #Recipe

Many years ago, I was told that the test of a good cook was their ability to make a good pie crust. It had to be flaky, tender and complement the filling inside. To say I was intimidated was an understatement. The key was cold lard, cold water and cold hands. My first attempt was anything but...

Wine Glasses – How to Choose: #Wine

Aug 11, 2016

How to choose wine glasses depends a lot on personal needs and preferences. Even though a wide selection of shapes suits the particular merits of many varietals, the average wine drinker isn’t interested in or prepared to stock up on countless forms of stemware. At a bare minimum invest in glasses appropriate for red...

Peach Preserves: #Recipe

Peaches are in season, inexpensive and easily available at the local farmers market. I bought a bunch to make Peach Preserves and Make-Ahead Peach Crisp.

No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies: #Recipe
