Blue Cheese Salad Dressing

I have experimented with different bases for this dressing: Mayonnaise, whole milk, heavy cream, sour cream, buttermilk, and varying combinations of these, and have decided I prefer a combination of sour cream and olive oil.

Gin Fizz

This is a refreshing cocktail for a summertime party and is festive enough for a holiday gathering. I tend to make this most often in January and February during the peak of our lemon season. If you find yourself with an extra egg white, a Gin Fizz is a fine use for it!

Spaetzle

When we have Spaetzle for dinner, I am asked every time why I don’t make this more often, and given how easy it is, I’m really not sure! Describing Spaetzle as a homemade noodle suggests it’s difficult and time consuming to prepare, but with a spaetzle maker, it becomes a quickly prepared side dish. I […]

Creamy Tomato Soup

This is my idea of the quintessential creamy tomato soup. If you use sweet, fresh, dry-farmed early girls, you’ll find the resulting soup to be balanced and delicious before you even add the cream. If your tomatoes are more acidic, the cream will help balance the acidity as will a little extra salt.

Spiced Molasses Cookies

These are an old fashioned cookie with no fancy mix-ins. You can use your choice of regular or black strap molasses. The latter will result in a stronger molasses flavor.

Creamy Lemon Salad Dressing

If you’re trying to expand your kids’ food repertoire to include salad, this slightly sweet, well-balance and non-acidic dressing might be the key.
