Apple Quick Bread with Soberdough

April 17, 2016

In January, while at the Dallas Wholesale Gift Market, Dave and I walked the Gourmet Food section. We are always looking for new food products that taste good, work well in our custom gift baskets, and are convenient for entertaining. We were so pleased to discover a family owned business called Soberdough. We tasted six of their beer breads, and they were all delicious. As soon as we tasted them we knew our customers would love the flavors, and were already pairing them in our minds with soups, chilies and salads. They even had a breakfast/dessert beer bread that we loved: Apple Fritter! Of course, that was the one I chose to make first.   These are called beer breads,... Read more

Living Through a Remodel

March 17, 2016

Well, I've got good news and I've got bad news. The good news is, we are FINALLY remodeling our kitchen and upstairs living area!! The bad news is, we are currently living in our basement. The good news is that I have a hair dressing studio in my basement, so I have room for a makeshift kitchen space. The bad news is my husband did not like the idea of using my shampoo bowl for a sink, so I place a dish pan inside the sink for cleaning. We really enjoy entertaining, and we also love to watch American Idol each week. Our good friends love to watch as well, and since good friends don't mind cramped quarters, we invited... Read more

Apple Kale Salad Recipe

August 06, 2015

Dave and I live in East Wenatchee, which is 45 miles from our store in Chelan. We commute on the Link Transit Bus about three times per week, and drive the other days. We don't usually get home until about 7:00 pm. We both enjoy cooking and eating healthy, which means we usually eat a late dinner. The following Apple Kale Salad is a recipe I came up with, and has become one of our favorites. The secret ingredient is using an aged White Balsamic Vinegar. The one we use is aged 18 years, and has a sweet, mellow flavor that adds brightness to the salad. Toss together: 1 Fuji apple - chopped2 cups packed baby kale2 cups angel hair... Read more
