It's no secret that I love a county fair. The animals, the exhibits, and most of all the ribbons.
This year I am branching out -- candies and preserves. Not a bad showing so far. Second fair of the season (the big one, Sonoma County is a couple weeks away) and I've racked up six blue ribbons, five red, a fourth, a fifth and a best in show.
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
