Citrus Chicken Soup

Posted by Wine & Spice on 11/30/2015 to Soup

A wonderful soup tastes great any time of the year.  I love this chicken soup because I know everything that is in it!  So healthy and fabulous.  


Today I used Citrus Sea Salt which is such an amazingly versatile seasoning.  It is hand blended from sea salt, orange zest, lemon zest, coarse black pepper, lime zest, smoked Pacific sea salt and ginger root.  It adds citrus kick to anything you make.  Mmmmmm!


I served this soup with a simple grilled cheese sandwich.  Simple, healthy and delicious.


We enjoyed a glass of Merlot with this soup…

Zahtar Middle Eastern Taco's

Posted by Wine & Spice on 11/30/2015 to Quick & Easy

I adore playing with new spices!  Zahtar is a Middle Eastern spice blend that has become a new favorite.  It is hand blended from sesame seeds, coriander, sumac, thyme, cumin and black pepper.  It has a distinctive lemony flavor that is derived from the berries of the Sumac bush that grows in the Middle East and in Italy.  This is great on veggies, fish and chicken.


Today I made a fun taco that is so delicious with a new flavor profile.  So fun to experiment!


We sipped an ice cold beer with this meal.

Brined Turkey

Posted by Wine & Spice on 11/19/2015 to Holiday Ideas

I love Thanksgiving!  I did not grow up in the USA but in Sweden and was not introduced to this fabulous meal until my late teens!  It is my absolute favorite meal of the year to prepare….


As most you know, this fantastic bird is easily dried out for various reasons.  I have learned that brining your turkey (whole or breast only) creates a spectacularly moist and delicious bird!


I used the MSC Turkey brine.  It is full of flavor…  Hand blended with sea salt, brown sugar, white peppercorns, orange peel, garlic flakes, black peppercorns, toasted minced onion, rosemary, pink peppercorns, thyme, basil, oregano, sage and bay leaves.


It is really simple to do and truly does make a huge difference!

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Posted by Wine & Spice on 11/3/2015 to Quick & Easy

Chicken Pot Pie is almost a soup!  As Rachel Ray would say, it is a Stoup (soup+stew).  It feels so good to feed your family something that you have made from scratch.  It is truly so easy to make, and super delicious.


Milford’s Perfect Poultry Seasoning  added so much flavor to this dish.  This is a great seasoning to use all year long.  It is a salt free blend of marjoram, thyme, oregano, sage and rosemary.  Great on grilled chicken or pork!


I chose to use Puff Pastry as a topper for my pot pie.  I really enjoy the flakiness that it creates.  You can also use pie dough.  Cook it the same way.


A glass of Chardonnay pairs well with this meal.
