Refrigerator Pickles take the unknown out of making pickles. I know nothing about canning and preserving, although both are on my culinary bucket list. I have however successfully made a couple variations of pickles. These Refrigerator Pickled Green Beans are ready in two days. They are crisp with a slightly spicy zing. Delicious.
I’ve mentioned before how much I adore my hair stylist. And I think you also know by now that I LOVE to talk about food. So when I have my time in the salon chair with a captive audience…we talk about food. I’m so happy that she has become a Lemony Thymefollower. Through conversation, I’ve always known she was a ‘good eater’ (something my mom labeled you as, IF you were willing to try different cuisines, and of course clean your plate).
Having said that, she’s young and still honing her own cooking skills. She shared that she loved the egg recipes I had been posting, but no matter how hard she tried she could not poach an egg. To quote her, “they always end up like egg drop soup.” And that was the recipe inspiration for this Egg Drop Soup post.
I discovered a lovely new shop for premium olive oils & balsamic vinegars. I came home with Blackberry Ginger Balsamic, among others. The flavor is so wonderful. Sweet, yet balanced by vinegar tart with a smooth finish. I’m now on a mission to come up with as many ways to incorporate it into my meals as possible.
