Season with Spice - Features: Homemade Spicy Ginger Ale Is there real ginger in Ginger Ale? If Ginger Ale did not include real ginger – with all its innumerable health benefits – why would our parents ask us to drink it when we have an upset stomach? Why would the canned drink be so popular on airplanes where many of us are prone to motion sickness? Real ginger can alleviate these symptoms. Some traditions never change. What began as Ginger Beer a few centuries ago in England – a concoction of ginger, water, sugar, lemon juice and ginger beer plant – eventually led to the creation of a non-alcoholic version called Golden Ginger Ale. While ginger beer and golden ginger ale generally have a high concentration of ginger, does dry ginger ale include the real spice? Yes, according to Canada Dry, but as just one part of the “Natural Flavors” of the drink. It is clear then that the drink includes just a trace of real ginger for flavor, and not enough to calm your aching stomach. Homemade Spicy Ginger Ale recipe by Season with Spice Process: 1.

Roasted Red Pepper, Sunflower and Walnut Pesto | Sarah's Cucina Bella The kids and I have been establishing new routines this year. We’ve shed the lazy weekends that used to feel so empty and instead started packing Saturday and Sunday tight with grocery shopping at the good store, cooking, library time, church and family dinner with our extended family. Though I thought the structure of weekend routines would be a burden, it’s really made the weekends feel longer and more fulfilling. Since Sundays seem to be our most packed day, I usually try to make a fast, homemade meal for lunch that can double as lunch for Will during the week. This recipe, adapted from Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut “Pesto” in The Food Matters Cookbook, was perfect for that. The flavor of this pesto is tangy, slightly sweet and a little bold. This is week three of The Food Matters Project! Roasted Red Pepper, Sunflower and Walnut Pesto yields 8 servings adapted from The Food Matters Cookbook Add the garlic to the bowl of a food processor and pulse briefly to break up.

Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Chili Butter I made these beautiful, tasty little suckers before Christmas and am only just now recovering from the bliss so I can tell you about them. I’ve always loved bacon-wrapped scallops, but for some reason this batch was so miraculously miraculous. Maybe it was just that I was filled with Christmas cheer and this made everything taste better. Or maybe that it was that the scallops were especially scallopy or that the bacon was exceptionally bacony. Or maybe it was that I drizzled the whole thing in melted chili butter, which made me faint and eat four thousand of them. Or maybe I just love food and become hyperbolic in its presence. In any event, these things are yummy. The Cast of Characters: Scallops, bacon, butter, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. I…love…scallops. Because the scallops are big, I’m using thick-cut bacon. Huh huh. Cut the bacon pieces in half or thirds (depending on the size of your scallops) and wrap them around the outside of each scallop. And yes. 1. 2. 3. Ingredients

Easy Cheese and Bread Pudding We are on the official countdown to my favorite holiday of the year – Thanksgiving!! So, I thought I’d start things off by tackling the tough things first. Stuffing. I know, it’s a pretty controversial topic – cooked in or out of the bird? In my family, the answer to that question was always easy. So, for me, stuffing was never an issue – until I was in college – and had stuffing for the first time. It was not a memorable occasion. This bread pudding definitely falls into that category.
