Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Posted by Wine & Spice on 9/15/2016 to Sweets


What is there not to love about Peach season!  Juicy, sweet and luscious, this fruit is by far one of my favorites…


Saigon Cinnamon has the highest natural oil content of any cinnamon (nearly 5%) giving this a magnificent flavor and aroma.  You can use this fantastic cinnamon in savory as well as sweet dishes, it adds a wonderful warm and spicy note to long-cooked dishes like soups and stews.  Sprinkle over finished desserts, ice cream and whipped cream!


I have never had a true Peach Cobbler so I asked my Southern friend how best to make one.  Super simple and fabulous!  Not exactly a light and healthy dish, but an indulgence to be savored!


I love how you add the ingredients and how they shift during baking!  


A cold glass of iced tea was fantastic with this dessert.

Chicken Shawarma

Posted by Wine & Spice on 9/4/2016 to Chicken & Poultry


Another new exotic spice blend to try! Shawarma, a Middle Eastern, Mediterranean spice mixture that is hand blended with cumin, coriander, garlic, paprika, tumeric, black pepper, cloves, cayenne and cinnamon.  This truly captures the fabulous flavors of authentic Shawarma.


I chose to make a salad with the marinated and roasted chicken with hummus, cucumber and tomatoes, cabbage and a cilantro dressing. Sooo delicious, healthy and amazingly fresh tasting.  Perfect salad for dinner on a warm night or hot in pita bread for a cold night.  My kids love this!


We enjoyed an ice-cold glass of Pinot Grigio with this meal.
