At our house we eat lots of soups and stews, beans and rice, grains and pasta. this pasta sauce first appeared in Cooking with Herbs in 1981!

Winter Solstice Wedding

The winter holiday season has begun--yesterday was the winter solstice--and today the full cold moon shines bright in the night sky.

We used the herbs and greenery of the season with lots of candlelight and sparkly fairy lights to add to the magic of the day.
