Dill Cucumber Relish

Dill Cucumber Relish - Solid Gold Eats

Backyard Blackberry Ice Cream with Backyard Mint Syrup - Solid Gold Eats

Blackberries have not shown up at our farmers market yet, but lucky for me, I had a secret stash from Christmas that I finally emptied. Rewind to last Christmas when I visited John’s parents. Each year I put together a package of food items (a mix of store bought and home made) for John’s dad, […]
