January 2017

This time of year is much about hibernation and reflection for me, when the day's are short, events are scarce and there's ice on the ground. I'm cooking dinner in homes, I am testing recipes, reading and planning out a few special events. I make a lot of spicy food, putting up big pots of broth a few times a week to keep my soup game strong, my frozen stash of summer fruit is looking bare by now. There is another good thing about January though, Dumplings! They never tasted so right as they do in the dead of winter and even here the possibilities are endless...
