This is definitely one of those dishes that might as well be a painting.  (Well, at least an edible one.)  It’s one of my recipes that came together as much by color as it did by flavor.

Spicy Quick Pickled Broccoli | cookingontheweekends

I loved family dinner parties at my grandparents’ house. My perception as a little girl, was that my grandparents were fancy. No matter what the occasion, Christmas Eve or a typical weekend evening, the table was set much like that in the upstairs dining room in Downton Abbey. Okay, so my grandparents didn’t use a […]
