Hello, Friends!

This is such a fun month, don’t you think?  It’s the breaking of a new calendar season when much of New York seems to be rejuvenated from a long winter’s sleep.  Whether you choose to homeschool through the summer months or take a break, the opportunities of togetherness with friends and family are more prevalent.  In fact, I personally enjoy it so much that I tend to lose track of time, and I am grateful for my outdoor grill, crock-pot, and pressure cooker for always getting me through the daily task of dinner!

As I said, I am hoping Tis the Season gets an invite to your home this summer, and as your guest, I will share some of my tried-and-true meals and desserts with easy and affordable options. I have over fifteen different spice blends, each of them offering unique, easy, and flavorful options.  However, one of my favorite summertime meals is fish on the grill….if you cut lemon slices and place them on your grill, then place your fish on top of the lemon slices, you’ll not only get a lemon flavor added to your fish, but also the fish won’t stick to the grill, making cleanup quick and easy.  If you’re not a grill cooker, simply use our Roasted Herb Rub for a rich flavor of paprika, garlic, and a small pinch of cayenne pepper on any prime cut of beef or pork, and stick it in your crock-pot or pressure cooker so you do not have to endure any extra heat in your home.

What is summer without the indulgence of desserts?  My sweet tooth of a husband loves to substitute his traditional strawberry shortcake treat with Chocolate Strawberry Jam in the dessert cups after he has run out of actual strawberries.  The minions in my home like to indulge in Brownies, straight up or added to their ice cream, and this treat has a gluten-free option available.  Last, but certainly not least, is our newest addition, Gluten-Free Brownie Cookies!  These are so full of flavor and ooey gooey good that you will be shocked that they are gluten-free, making them a win for everyone.
