"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........
Some of the recipes that I have tried,tested and tasted..and some that I want to try,test and taste... :) ....and other useful information all collected and saved in one place.....

Dill and Carrot Salad
2 cups carrots, peeled and thinly sliced * 1/2 cup shallots or red onions, diced 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 2-3 pieces fresh dill, chopped Salt and pepper to taste
Boil carrots until tender yet crisp, about 2 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain. Combine carrots and onions. Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl until well blended. Pour over carrot mixture and toss well. Refrigerate at least 3 hours to blend flavors.
* If you can find multicolor carrots – Rainbow Crunch is one brand – they look really pretty in this salad!
