Spring in My Tart - Salmon & Asparagus Vol au Vent + Lemon Mustard Glaze

Spring in My Tart - Salmon & Asparagus Vol au Vent + Lemon Mustard Glaze

Spring has arrived! Today I spotted a blue jay, which, has always been the true marker of Spring. The Cardinals brighten a winter landscape and the blue dashes with Spring’s riot of green! And with that, it is almost binary switch in my kitchen. I want more green on my plate, more vegetables and more fresh looking and tasting stuff. I am not sure how much I can garden this year, as last year’s patch has been completely razed and no longer viable. So, I am definitely focusing on being more mindful of getting produce that is in-season in the local environs (North East for me and ignoring California!).

Vegetable Cutlets In Dijon Mushroom Sauce + A Giveaway

Vegetable Cutlets In Dijon Mushroom Sauce + A Giveaway

Chocolate Paired For Everyday

Chocolate Paired For Everyday

Often, when the day has been a tad stressful or just full (of cries, of surprise laughs), I steal a moment of peace and self love with a square of chocolate.

Have you noticed, it is really really hard to be annoyed or sad or frustrated when you stare at a cheerily lit Christmas Tree??!

Here I was tasting chocolates and dreaming of how I would spend my day eating them. So, this is my vision of how I could so easily have chocolate from breakfast through goodnight kiss. Fortunately, I still get to do this atleast once a day and I highly recommend that practice, if you are at all, looking to find a way to steal a moment for yourself :)

Festive Beginnings - Pairing Notes Sonoma-Cutrer Wines

Festive Beginnings - Pairing Notes Sonoma-Cutrer Wines

The Holiday season is here! And, it is my favorite part of the year! This year in particular I have much to celebrate and be thankful for - life, friends and family. I have been blessed, I have been tested and I have triumphed. And, oh! There have been so many new beginnings to toast and raise a glass. The wines and whiskeys have been flowing free and unchecked and I cannot be more thrilled. It is of course not to say that there haven't been trials but hey, a good glass of wine is well and nice for when its a good day and even better when it ain't so nice! :D

Read on for tasting and food pairing notes on a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards.
