This is a great breakfast/brunch casserole that is lovely for a Mother's Day brunch, New Year's Day Brunch, or other gathering. Serve with fresh fruit and your favorite beverage. Easily made ahead--just assemble the night before and refrigerate overnight. In the morning just pop into the oven and bake for about 1 hour plus a few minutes more, until hot. From the local paper.

Recipe #112778

In wine growing regions, berries- particulary strawberries- are typically combined with the wine from that area, and sometimes a liqueur, and served as a dessert. Here, strawberries are mixed with a fruity red wine and black currant (creme de cassis) or blackberry liqueur (Chambord or creme de mures) and served in the classic way, spooned into wine goblets. If desired top the desserts with shredded peppermint leaves and a spoonful of sour cream or creme fraiche, and serve them with cookies. Delicious, light and refreshing!

This cold salad was a winner among over 600 entries in the local paper seeking Thanksgiving worthy side dishes. It is also perfect for spring and summer. From Rita E. Applegate. Note: Also good with a combination of chervil, chives and dill (with or w/o the curry) for a very classic peas dish. I hope you enjoy!

This is a great coleslaw to serve with BBQ, or on Pulled Pork Sandwiches--yum! To save time, buy the pre-shredded cabbage and carrots. Cook time is chill time. Makes 6 cups. Adapted from Best Foods.

Recipe #118159

Here's a wonderful light, quick and easy veggie dish that pairs beautifully with grilled chicken or fish, -or- you can make a meal of it just add some crusty bread, Parmesan cheese, and a nice bottle of wine -or- serve over penne pasta. May be served hot, warm or at room temperature. Use fresh or dried herbs, as you wish. Enjoy!

A simple yet glorious dish for those abundant summer squash! I really prefer parsley with the fresh lemon zest, rather than the cilantro-mint combo.. feel free to use your favorite herbs. This dish can be panfried -or- cooked on the grill. Enjoy! Adapted from "Simple Pleasures" by Alfred Portale and Andrew Friedman.

A refreshing & delicious herbal and tea blend to sip on a warm day, or just while visiting with your special friend. This recipe was passed along from my friend Virginia Murphy of the Orange County Herb Society. Virginia is a lovely lady who also runs The Herboretum Herb Farm here in the Temecula Valley Wine Country. She grows and sells a nice selection of herbs, scented-geraniums, and other herbaceous plants. A great place to visit if you are in the area!

This bread is delicious served at room temperature with cream cheese. Recipe makes two loaves and freezes well, so you can eat one and save one for later. Note: You can sub a 16 ounce bag of frozen unsweetened strawberries, thawed, for the fresh strawberries.

Recipe #167785

There is nothing like having warm bread baking in the oven, to warm your kitchen and your family's heart! Recipe is from my friend Virginia Murphy, owner of Herboretum Farm. (Note: This would probably work just as well with other scented geraniums, such as lemon or apricot).

Recipe #163990

These delightfully fragrant rose-scented scones are wonderful for a garden tea party with friends! Lovely served warm, with butter and herb jelly. They freeze and reheat well, too. From my friend Virginia, owner of 'The Herboretum' herb farm here in the sunny California Wine Country.

This luscious, lemony loaf cake goes together fast, travels well- you can pop it back in the loaf pan once it has cooled to protect it en route- and stays moist. No one will guess this moist, sweet cake with a bright citrus tang is low-fat and made entirely with whole-wheat flour. Feel free to double the recipe and freeze the second loaf for future take-along use. From the newspaper.

I am a lemon fanatic! These exquisite lemony muffins make for a wonderful picnic or sack lunch treat. Meyer lemons are a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin or sweet orange. Recipe is from the L. A. Times.

Rich buttery pistachio shortbread cookies, with a fabulous lemon glaze! These cookies would make a lovely holiday or hostess gift, and a welcome addition to the holiday cookie tray. From Calphalon.
