Sounds good enough to eat!

I am working on constructing my cookbook and I am challenged by writing with more colorful descriptions. It is one thing to say "It was a delicious or beautiful tomato" and it is another to say "It was a plump, juicy tomato, not bright red but a blush color that is reminiscent of that perfect moment in a sunset. You know right where the sun hits the horizon and you get that quick moment of blush before the sun sinks into the darkness." This may be overplaying this a bit, but you get the picture. My next entry will be one of my recipes that I am going to be used in my cookbook along with the description. I am hoping to get comments, grading my descriptors. Have a great day!

Simple Works!

This summer has been a great time to practice simple, fresh and healthy dishes. We had a beautiful tomato crop this year-heirlooms that were fabulous! My simple delicious and oh so popular dish was a simple vingrette with a touch of honey, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzerella, zuchinni, fresh basil, salt and pepper, totally delicious!
