When I served our salad last night, I was a little apprehensive. Shawn isn’t a big fan of lemon so I wasn’t sure he’d even try this dressing. But he tasted it on one piece of lettuce and then dressed his whole salad with it. “Rosemary is really the star,” he remarked … and it […]

A few weeks ago, I started thinking of fall flavors (seriously, when did seasons become flavors to me?). Apples, pumpkins, squash, Brussels sprouts … I started to scheme about how I could use them to create new dishes. The first thing that came to mind: Apple Cider Vinaigrette.

When I saw the drum, I thought that couldn’t possibly be where this delectable balsamic comes from, but it was. Just one of those funny things.
