Gin and Grapefruit Juice Cocktail

The Tattletale

We celebrated our latest wedding anniversary by having dinner at a new restaurant here in Lexington called The Lockbox.  It is located in the 21C boutique hotel/art museum.  I am a one-drink girl, and because of that, I like to make the cocktail or glass of wine that I drink before a dinner something special.  […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Lemon poppy seed pancakes - The 2 Seasons

Mr. Right and I love having brunch after mass on Sunday mornings.  Sometimes we stop by a local restaurant on our walk home , but most of the time, I like to prepare it myself.  It’s important to me to mix it up every week so that brunch doesn’t become monotonous.  I’ll assemble a frittata, […]


Avocado Salad Recipe

Avocado Salad - The 2 Seasons

The first time I had avocado salad was on a trip we took to Laos.  We were in a little village that was built on stilts over a lake, and we had to take a boat to get to it.  The salad was so fresh and delicious that I decided I would figure out how […]


It’s National Tea Day

Brew up some sun tea - The 2 Seasons

Happy Friday, everyone.  Did you know that it’s National Tea Day on June 10?  How did we come up with that one?  Don’t get me wrong.  I am totally addicted to my three cups a day, plus some iced tea in the hot months.  That being said, we are reminding you of an oldie but […]

With the holiday week-end upon us, you are probably on the look-out for some dessert recipes to serve your friends and family.  We love serving fruit cobblers and crisps.  They are easy to assemble, can be made ahead, can be served with ice cream or whipped cream to make them even yummier, and they use […]


Spiralized Zucchini with Pesto

Spiralized zucchini with pesto - The 2 Seasons

Spiralized vegetables have been a hot item this year.  Have you tried them?  I have been on a really healthy food plan since the new year, and spiralized vegetables have become part of our meal rotation.  I have a Kitchenaid mixer, and Yankee surprised me with this spiralizer attachment one afternoon for no reason at […]


Ginger and Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Lemon Ginger Shortbread - The 2 Seasons

The combo of ginger and lemon in a shortbread cookie is a pleasant surprise.  I made a batch of these goodies on a rainy Tuesday afternoon, and along with a cup of tea, they were a true afternoon delight.  The ginger makes them a great cookie for cool weather, and the freshness of lemon makes […]


Derby Day Tarts

Derby Day Tarts - Mini pecan pies with chocolate chips and bourbon. Yummy! - The 2 Seasons

Here in Kentucky, there is a delicious pie that we like to eat on Derby Day, which is tomorrow in case you haven’t noticed.  However, because of copyright laws, etc., we are not allowed to call it Derby Pie.  A bakery owns the rights to that name.  That’s okay, though.  Today I have a recipe […]
