Rhubarb adds a distinct sweet, tart and tannic tone to pies and tarts, especially when combined with other fruits.

Grill time!

Warmer weather means it’s time for backyard burgers, tender kebabs, sizzling steaks, BBQ ribs, cold refreshing drinks and gatherings of family and friends.

What’s in season

Asparagus- grilled, roasted, or steamed, this springtime vegetable is always a treat!

What’s in season

A delicate member of the onion family, with a hint of garlic. Chopped chives can go with nearly any dish whenever you want the flavor of onion without the bite. Great ingredient for fish and meat, rice, soups and salads, chicken or egg dishes, especially on baked potatoes.

Kartofdzhyn

Kartofdzhyn- the pie stuffed with potato and cheese. These popular Ossetian pies are baked with different fillings and often prepared on holidays. In Ossetia they traditionally serve three pies on a plate and only on days of mourning – an even number. These pies are a cult food in Ossetia and have ritual significance.

Spring is in the air! Celebrate warm weather with a casual-yet lovely- spring dinner!

Love my garden

I love gardening so much, it makes my world beautiful. I have a vegetable/herb garden, flower gardens, fruit trees and berries. When I am outside I feel happy, too bad we don’t have nice weather all year but when we do, we are gardening! 😉
