Envy-able Sangria #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway


Who doesn't love a good sangria? Typically it's a summer libation...well, at least for me. I don't think I've ever made sangria after Labor Day. But I was inspired to create a wintery version when I received some crisp apples from one of the sponsors for my multi-day, multi-blogger event - Fresh Tasty Valentines.


So, with apples from Envy Apples and wine from another event sponsor - Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi - I bring you my Envy-able Sangria. I even headed out, during a break in the rain, with new clippers from Casabella to get some rosemary from the garden.


And, on this final day of our event, I figured a nice libation to pour into glass and retreat to the couch was a must. Salud!



Ingredients 
  • 1 apple (I used Envy Apples)
  • 1/2 C fresh organic cranberries, sliced in half or pierced with a skewer
  • 1 sprig fresh organic rosemary
  • 1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc (I used Woodbridge)
  • 4 T organic granulated sugar
  • 1 C sparkling water
  • fresh organic rosemary sprigs, for garnish
  • organic granulated sugar, for garnish
  • Also need: 1 L jar with a lid


Procedure
Core and dice the apples. Place them at the bottom of the jar. Put the cranberries and rosemary into the jar and sprinkle with sugar. Pour in the wine and the sparkling water. Place the lid on the jar and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.


To make your garnish, lay rosemary sprigs on a plate and spray with water. Dip the rosemary into granulated sugar. Let dry. To serve, pour into glasses and garnish with sugared rosemary.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
