A Sumac Of Flavor

Sumac is a wonderful spice that used to be considered as a poison until recently. Now don’t get me wrong there is poisonous sumac that has white berries. You should probably stay away from those, but don’t mind me. There are several types of Sumac that can be used in your cooking. The leaves and…

A Break

Greetings and salutations, I will be away from my blog for the next couple days. Life has been… well a real struggle for the last month and I am at my wit’s end. My fibromyalgia has been acting up and my medication stopped working. I also want to spend some time with my sweet mother….

A Girl and A Broom
