Red Bud Time

This is a beautiful time to take walks in Manhattan, not just because of the weather, but because of all of the flowering trees: red buds, white buds, pear, crab apple, and so forth. These are some pictures that I took yesterday while walking past the Manhattan Public Library.Red & White Bud Trees

Rosemary

For this first time ever, I have successfully over-wintered Rosemary in a pot outdoors. I am thrilled to have fresh rosemary to cook with that I thought that I would share my favorite way to use it. Start with fresh rosemary that has been washed and dried off. Put some olive oil and fresh rosemary in a skillet, then warm over medium heat. Once the rosemary has lost its bright green color, remove from pan. Use flavored olive oil right away to flavor eggs, potatoes, asparagus or mushrooms.Image
