Coniglio all'Ischitana (Rabbit Stew) and a Book Review

I just finished listening to the second in the Whimbrel House series by Charlie Holmberg.  It is the newest release in the series that started with Keeper of Enchanted Rooms that I read for our Lit Happens Book Club last November.

Heir of Uncertain Magic

Fresh Mint Muffins with Chocolate Chips #MuffinMonday

It is mint season again here on the Farm.  My garden overflows with mint that I spend the rest of the summer trying to find new recipes for and drying for use during the winter.  

Mint Chocolate Chip Muffins

These delicious muffins start by steeping fresh mint in milk and butter.  When this mixture cools sufficiently it only takes minutes to turn them into a wonderful breakfast, snack or dessert.

Californio Enchiladas with a Chilean Chardonnay #WorldWineTravel

I make a lot of Enchiladas in this house as it is a favorite of our youngest child who still lives at home. This recipe, found at TASTE, is reported to have been passed down through the generations of families that arrived in California during the years of 1769 and 1833when the Missions were established.

I am sharing these enchiladas, that I paired with a Chilean Chardonnay, for our World Wine Travel event this month......
