Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus Tea reminds me of walks in the Caribbean, stopping to sample roadside BBQ and being handed a syrupy, vivid 'house tea'. Now, years later making it in Maine as the days get longer and the sun starts to have warmth again is the ultimate nostalgic treat.

This recipe is simple and the end result is versatile. On its own the tea is bold, it brightens up any cocktail (especially good with Gin and Tonics!) and mixed with seltzer and a splash of Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar, it's the perfect base for a shrub. Cheers!

Syrian Za'atar Roasted Cashews and Walnuts

Syrian Za'atar Roasted Cashews and Walnuts

Raw cashews and walnuts are two of my staple pantry ingredients and I recently found a new favorite use for them. Syrian Za'atar roasted nuts are a little but sweet, a little bit salty and pack just enough of a kick to keep you coming back for more. The roasted nuts keep for weeks and are quick to make - two of my favorite things when it comes to homemade snacks! 

These nuts are great added to a charcuterie board or sprinkled on ice cream as a simple dessert.

Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup with Turmeric and Sweet Smoked Paprika Rice Cakes

Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup with Turmeric and Sweet Smoked Paprika Rice Cakes

Chicken is a staple in our kitchen and a whole roasted chicken is a typical Sunday night meal. We’re in waste not – want not mode, so this week’s roasted chicken leftovers were repurposed into a Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup. We happened to have day old rice in the fridge and decided to make griddled rice cakes to go along with the soup, but you could always add noodles or a wild rice blend for added texture and flavor.
