Lemon Curd Grilled Chicken Skewers

Is it strange that when I saw the jar of The English Provender Co. Lemon Curd in my Degustabox this month, I immediately wanted to use it in a savory recipe rather than in something sweet? Dessert would be too easy.  Maybe I was unconsciously looking for a creative challenge. Whatever the reason, it gave delicious life to "boring old chicken."

Apple Cider Bourbon Spritzer

There is no denying it, our descent into Fall is slowly happening. It's so hard to let go of summer, but I do find myself looking forward to the sights, smells, and tastes of Fall. Not just on my plate, but even in my cocktail glass, I'm now seeking those classic New England flavors like cinnamon and apple. This Apple Cider Bourbon Spritzer is the perfect drink bridging the lighter cocktails of summer with the warming flavors of Fall.

TerraSole Is An Italian Trattoria In The Heart of Ridgefield

TerraSole on Big Shop Lane in Ridgefield isn't new. In fact, it's been there for quite a while. For no particular reason, we just kept overlooking it. Until now. And I am so glad we finally sat down to a meal here.

As Seen On WTNH: Breakfast Ideas For Busy Mornings

This morning I was up and out early! By 6:45am I was in the studio at WTNH setting up for a segment on Good Morning CT Weekend. At that early hour, it was appropriate that host Stephanie Simoni and I were scheduled to chat about breakfast ideas for busy mornings.
