#Puremade Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette #Sponsored

I received a bottle of a brand-new product from Torani* - one of their puremade syrups. I've long been a fan of Torani and used their syrups in my Hot Caramel Apple CiderLavender Panna CottaGuava Gin Fizz, and more. So, drinks and desserts were my go-to. But I rarely used those syrups in any kind of savories.

Then I noticed that a friend had used a syrup in a vinaigrette and I thought to myself: Why not? Sometimes you put honey or maple syrup in a vinaigrette. Done!

As I mentioned, this Puremade Syrup from Torani is a brand-new product; it will be available to customers shortly. But I love that Torani Puremade Syrups contain: no artificial preservatives; no artificial colors; no artificial flavors; and no GMOs!


I whipped up this batch of Puremade Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette and drizzled it on an entree salad with poached salmon. It was a perfect blend of sweet, tart, and tangy. I will definitely be making it again soon.

 Ingredients makes just under 3/4 C vinaigrette

  • 3 T organic mayonnaise
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 2 T vinegar (I used organic white vinegar)
  • 1 T vanilla syrup (prefer Torani Puremade)
  • 1 t dried thyme
  • 1 t pure vanilla bean extract (or you can scrape the caviar from a vanilla bean)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t vanilla salt
  • Also needed: mason jar with a lid

Procedure

Place all of the ingredients in a mason jar. Place the lid on top. Shake to combine. Refrigerate until needed. Then shake before using.

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!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
