Happy New Year, Folks! Ok...I know it's already February, but as this is the January highlights posting, I thought the greeting was still applicable.
The first month of the year saw a range of culinary fun for me - making some hearty-weather favorites, celebrating several food holidays and testing out one or two potential DVanB Foods recipes.
Celebrating National Spaghetti Day with capellini simply-dressed in olive oil, lemon juice and salt & pepper.
A heaping bowl of my homemade chili. I came up with this recipe almost 15 years ago and it's always a hit!
Some foodies friends and I checked out a new concept restaurant in the area.
Cod and a bit of beer batter...now that's a tasty combination.
Spicing up some popcorn with a few of the seasoning blends.
Rounding out things by toasting National Cheese Lover's Day with a selection of delicious dairy products.
