Thai-style iced tea. Vanilla bean and star anise simple sugar, black tea, heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk make a super refreshing summer treat. Recipe compliments of Bon Appetit magazine.

Have excess arugula? Don’t fear. Try out SilverPen’s quinoa and arugula recipe (image included in this post).

In my variation I used: arugula, tri-color quinoa, yellow onion, cherry tomatoes, French feta cheese, lemon juice, toasted almonds, capers, fresh parsley, and olive oil, salt and pepper (no artichokes in mine). 

The absolute BEST part of this concoction is the sweet onion oil infusion which is then mixed into the quinoa. Read again…the absolute best part is the onion olive oil infusion. It gives the quinoa such an amazing sweet taste which I never thought to try. I had to be careful not to overpower it with the lemon juice. Next time I am going heavier on the onions! Yum.

Irish Soda Bread

Celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by baking 3 loaves of Irish soda bread using Barefoot Contessa’s recipe. By the way, the trick to kneading without a mess or skewing the flour to liquid ratio is to rub olive oil on your hands and the kneading surface!
