There are some things that should always be eaten as a pair–summer’s peaches and fresh whipped cream, salty fried chicken and syrupy waffles, rich Irish butter and warm, hearty bread. And of course bacon and mushrooms. They are often a match in a number of recipes. Broil bacon-wrapped mushrooms for an appetizer, or saute up a batch as a topping for your burger. You can toss them over a cheesy pizza, or fold them into a creamy pasta dish. The combination is usually decadent, so if you’re going to do it, go all the way! If you are looking for another way to serve up bacon and mushrooms, here is a fried rice dish that is worth a try.  Continue Reading »

Following the March Dole Blogger Summit sponsored by Dole Packaged Foods, there were a lot of ideas floating around about ways to highlight Dole products. This one was easy, and maybe because it includes the item most associated with the company–pineapple.

This past weekend, the folks at The Art of Tea invited a few bloggers to their headquarters and warehouse for an informational tour and tasting. It’s amazing how much you don’t know about something, right? Tea is enjoyable, but there is so much more about it beyond a cup of warmth and relaxation.

Floured Blueberries - The Duo Dishes

Fresh out of the clamshell package, there is a disconnect between what I know they taste like and what my buds perceive. Does anyone else have this issue with a certain fruit, vegetable or even condiment? How do you work around that? One of my answers is baked goods. A bunch of blueberries found their way into this cake because it is what I deemed to be best for them. And me.
