Wow! This recipe tastes as enchanting as it sounds. The French have a way with food and sauces that can’t be beat. Combine the Chateaubriand with the potato soufflé and top both with this rich yet elegant Bordelaise sauce and you’ll think you are in the south of France. Choose your wine to match. You won’t even need dessert because you’ll be delightfully satisfied.
I had a luncheon today for a girl who just graduated from high school. I served this delicious lavender lemonade and lavender, lemon, blueberry and pecan muffins. Everything looked so pretty and of course we burned a lavender candle to set the mood.
I never knew until I went there that there are several kinds of lavender. The kind that smells so good is not the kind you cook with. The owner of The Lookout Lavender Farm tells us all about it in this video. And she’s given us several recipes to try.
Since I like lemon so well I’m going to try these Lemon-Lavender Muffins first.
The setting is perfect for these restaurants and shops. They were built right beside the Little Pigeon River and we can hear the water running over the tops of big rocks there. There are trees and birds all over the property. The big country store has anything you can imagine with apples on it or in it and even apples themselves to buy. A new fun store has hard cider with many different flavors to try. After eating your meal you can find the candy and ice cream stores very satisfying too. Have fun and make it an evening not just a meal.
When we bought the cabin the counters had been painted. Well, we all know I cook way too much for that to work.
Every city needs a 24 hour diner and this one offers breakfast to dinner all day and night. And the cakes are spectacular! Ever in this part of the country, you need to try it👍
Just don’t think about the alligators. The instructor told us that a kayaks with two seats doesn’t tip over and I guess he was right. We had a wonderful day on the water. You should all try it. We didn’t even see a sign of alligators anyway and the locals say they aren’t in that area👍
