Haydon Street Cream Scones

Haydon Street Cream Scones by Jane Evans Bonacci

Our favorite place to stay in Healdsburg, CA is the Haydon Street Inn. Run by the delightful couple, John Harasty and Keren Colsten, it is the perfect get-away. The home was built in 1912 and they have filled it with antique items that remind us of a gentler time. You can feel the stress slipping away from the moment you walk in the…

Baked Caramel Corn

Baked Caramel Corn by Jane Evans Bonacci

Original recipe from Jiffy Pop Popcorn. The trick to this recipe is to stir the caramel until the sugar is dissolved and then don’t touch it again until you turn it out of the pan. Stirring brings any undissolved sugar crystals down into the mixture and the whole thing will crystallize again.

I used my own Classic Fudgy Brownie recipe and topped…

Marinate as directed and cook on…

Wild Rice Pilaf with Fresh Vegetables

Wild Rice Pilaf with Fresh Vegetables by Jane Evans Bonacci

Did you know that wild rice is not rice at all but grass? It grows in areas of shallow water, so prevalent in the state of Minnesota that it is the official state grain. Surprisingly the Central Valley of California is the other main producer of wild rice. It is naturally gluten-free and high in protein, potassium, B-complex vitamins,…
