New Video: Mint Juleps

So with mint growing wild in the summer garden, why not use it for a drink or two? Mint juleps and mojitos are my go to Southern summer drinks. I love to collect julep cups and relish in the cold silver in my hands on a hot summer day. As for mojitos, well, this south of the border flavor is perfect for a south of the Mason/Dixon line too!

A big shout out of thanks to my friends at Onward Reserve for hosting this Farmer (and outfitting too!!!) for this segment. It sure is handy to have friends whose store has a bar too!

I hope your summertime has been filled with fantastic flavors like mint. It is easy to grow, delicious in salads and the perfect drink all summer long! From this Farmer’s garden and table, enjoy ya’ll!

More of the Farmer to Table Series: Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

This is my go to summer salad, y'all! I loved making it with my pal Gena Knox, and I enjoyed this dish all summer long! It's delicious mixed with white peaches and any other peach for that matter, and this dish dresses up for fall and winter with pears or citrus or pecans in lieu of peaches! Enjoy!!

Next Farmer to Table Video and Peach & Goat Cheese Salad

Here's comes a fun talk with my friend and fellow cook Gena Knox. We filmed in her fun garden then took some greens from the garden and made a salad. Here's the video of our chat and the recipe for next week's video with the salad. I wanted y'all to have it so you could make it with all these fabulous, fresh peaches coming in now!

Enjoy y'all!
