Sweet Potato and Chickpea Stew

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Stew

September arrived and with it it’s chilly mornings and cooler nights, with afternoons that are just so incredibly perfect for walks and dinner on the deck. Our meals also evolve – instead of crisp, cold salads, we are craving hearty meals that will warm us up from the inside out, like this Sweet Potato and Chickpea Stew we've made in our favorite 8-quart stock pot.

Cherries Jubilee

 I came across this Cherries Jubilee recipe and love to make it as a topping for a good vanilla bean ice cream. It offers so much flavor and ways to enhance any dish of ice cream. If you want to give yourself a great combination – you need to try this over chocolate ice cream too. The warmth and sharp taste of cherries jubilee with the smooth and cool taste of the ice cream is just too hard to resist. If you want more of a bite to your recipe, you can add extra brandy, but be careful when you ignite it for the smoky flavor.

Classic Mexican Tortilla Soup

For this recipe we’re skipping over the Tex-Mex variety and going straight for the traditional Mexican version. This soup is perfect for any season. It’s simple to make and is layered with complex and satisfying flavors that are guaranteed to impress. We humbly suggest pairing it with some margaritas, a patio view and a summer sunset.
