For Labor Day Weekend this year, we returned to New Buffalo, MI for Lobster Mania Part 2. Returning home with our two beautiful lobsters my aunt suggested this twist on escargot. The result… a garlicky explosion of seafood & cheese with each and every bite.
We wanted to get some sushi rolling practice in before teaching a Sushi & Sake class at work. Here’s the plate we came up with: Spicy Salmon, Spicy Tuna and our very own Blowout Roll!
Napa is known around the world for its exquisite wine and food. While visiting my mom and sister this week, we dined at three recommended restaurants, enjoying the farm-to-table cuisine, and were inspired to create our own fine dining experience at home, Napa-style.
Making the stock for this dish was way more fun than I had expected (relaxing, too). I just tossed some of my favorite vegetables and herbs together in a pot and stepped away, letting the boiling water extract all the wonderful flavors as I prepared the other ingredients.
