Still have a supply of tarragon in my herb collection.  I’ve been infusing this nutrient packed herb in my dishes for quite a few days. This slender and somewhat sweet herb  was excellent in my chicken dish and once again, it has performed a great job on my pork steak. With the aid of a few other ingredients like ginger, onions, salt, pepper,garlic, etc. I was able to pull off an amazing tarragon-spiced dish stove top.

In the culinary world, pork and apples are ideal partners. Thus, I decided to combine both by roasting a couple of red delicious apples cut in slices along with carrot wedges. With a drizzle of olive oil a sprinkle of cinnamon, pinch of salt and chopped tarragon, apples and carrots were roasted at 410 degrees for about 40 minutes. The result was a sweet and tart finish.


Tarragon-spiced pork, roasted apples,and carrots were served with a side of kale/parsley rice. The union was superb.

Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
