Happy Sunday foodie friends! With the fall herb harvest in full swing, I've heard a lot of people say that they don't like rosemary. 

What? Is my typical response. I usually then continue on and say, rosemary is great in so many things! You're missing out. 

After listening to many friends tell me why they don't really like it, I have learned that most people don't like it because they feel it is like eating pine needles. 

Here is a very simple way to solve that problem and begin to enjoy this delicious herb!

Thank you so much to Glens Falls Gourmet fan Jon Volks for putting these together for us! It was one of the most awesome and thoughtful gifts I received this holiday season!

This hot chocolate recipe will go to good use on this snowy day in Glens Falls!
Here's a quick and easy tip for Valentine's Day. Create hearts out of cinnamon rolls! Simply unroll them half way, then roll back up to form a heart shape. Wah-lah! <3 Now, wasn't that easy? Who says you have to be a 5-star chef to create fabulous meals?!

FoodieTip: Find Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in the refrigerator section next to the refrigerated dough products.

Before you fire up the grill, make sure it is really clean. Most of us have those wire brushes which do help a bit, but they don't get the grill totally clean.

Tip for cleaning your grill: Cut a large onion or a lemon in half. I would suggest wearing gloves if you are worried about getting dirty. Rub down your grill surface with the cut side until all the black is off. Wipe it with a paper towel and VOILA, your grill is both clean and seasoned! I tried the lemon for the first time last summer and it worked great! I'm going to try the onion next. Give it a try and let me know what you think! Feel free to share your tips & tricks too!

Mary Longley Beside cooking being my middle name, most people call me Mary. My cooking experience started out of necessity, and with lots of successes and not so successful gourmet delights, I learned to be a little creative with some foods and found things that stay consistently on my list. Spending time in the kitchen is therapy for me and entertaining to share the successes. I look forward to sharing some of my creativity with everyone.
