Hazelnuts, whole unroasted. they go rancid quickly once roasted, so I roast as needed.
vermouth- makes any sauce better
pepper in a grinder
butter, never margarine. Going to try making ghee this week.
coffee-brings me happiness in general, not just culinary!
brown rice syrup-makes the best granola bars
fresh herbs-I usually keep thyme and basil, and have a rosemary bush in the yard.
butternut squash-squash fries, curried squash soup, etc.
This is making me hungry! Time to go find a snack!
