Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette

Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette

January kind of gets me down. All the celebrations (and food) from Thanksgiving through Christmas and even New Year’s, then that “What have I done feeling” when it’s all over. Then there are the New Year’s Resolutions. And the cold. And even though every day brings another minute or so of light, the dark, dreary winter. But sometimes, there’s an opportunity to inject a little sunshine into your life, and this Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette is just that.

Arugula & Peach Salad with Feta & Bacon

Arugula & Peach Salad with Feta & Bacon

Arugula & Peach Salad - the peaches are sweet but the bacon & feta just contrast so nicely! You'll want to drink that dressing!

Here it is, September already, and I’m in full on denial. Maybe that should be “fall” on denial! I keep seeing little signs, although you wouldn’t know it by the weather. Or the glut of fruits & veggies at the store. When I saw the Colorado peaches (imho) some of the best peaches in the world, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.

Classic Vinaigrette for Savory or Fruit Salads

Thanksgiving week is upon us, and I have yet to post a Thanksgiving recipe. I wanted to, but the universe must be conspiring against me! An apple strudel turned out to be a little lackluster (although we ate it all!) and needs to tweaked and remade. A coffee cake turned bizarre when all the Struesel topping sunk to the bottom. (We are working on finishing that one right now!)

Sweet Sorghum Vinaigrette

Sweet Sorghum Vinaigrette

There’s nothing like the feeling of falling in love and fallen I have. Wait – no news on the “guy” front – I’ve fallen for this Sweet Sorghum Vinaigrette. I think you’ll feel the same way once you taste it! A touch of sweet with just a hint of smoky warmth, this is unlike any dressing I’ve ever tasted (or made) before.

Melissa d’Arabian’s Mustard Vinaigrette

Melissa d’Arabian’s Mustard Vinaigrette

When I first posted this recipe for Melissa d’Arabian’s Mustard Vinaigrette back in 2012, the world of food was quite a bit different than it is now, in 2019. Back then there were bloggers (including me), there was the internet and of course, there were food shows, like $10 Dinners, which I watched with interest. There was nothing like the explosion of knowledge we have at our fingertips, today.
