Eating is a necessity. However, we choose what to eat. The choices we make reveal a great deal about us. The food you eat can tell quite a bit about your heritage, your family, your fears, your sense of adventure, your attitude toward yourself and others, and a myriad of other personal tidbits to anyone paying attention. Everything about eating is a glimpse into your soul.

I hope to reveal a little bit about myself to you through my food. I enjoy cooking. I enjoy eating. I find pleasure in bringing pleasure to others. I hope that by sharing my recipes I bring you a little bit of joy.

Cook my food. Feed it to the people you love.

Spicy Sweet Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli slaw is a fun alternative to cabbage slaw.  I like to throw in baby bells for color and raisins for sweetness and a change in texture. 

Servings: 4
Time:    Prep: 10 minute Chill: 2 hours
Hardware:  Measuring spoons and cups, a cutting board and knives, a mixing bowl, a whisk, a large storage container

Baby bells are crunchy
& so beautiful

  • ½ cup olive oil based mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons spicy stone-ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • Pinch Cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 package of broccoli slaw
  • 3 red, orange, and yellow baby bell peppers (¼ cup)
  • 3 green onions
  • ⅛ cup golden raisins*
  • Dressing
  1. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing.
  2. Wash the peppers and onions.  Slice them as thinly as you can.
  3. Toss the slaw, peppers, onions, and raisins.  Then toss the slaw with the dressing until everything is thoroughly coated.  Chill for at least two hours before serving.
 * I use golden raisins, regular raisins, and dried cranberries to make my salad pretty and to add more tastes and textures.
