Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, football, and carving turkey! It is also a time to give thanks for our many blessings and take time out of our busy schedules to come together. One of the ways we do this is by sharing a scrumptious meal together! This year, season your Thanksgiving feast with the exotic deliciously healthy tastes of New Zealand. Use the yummy New Zealand Multiflora Honey to baste a turkey golden brown; sprinkle some pure Pacific Sea Salt on the veggies, add some Chipotle BBQ salt or Mesquite Smoked Pacific Sea Salt to the stuffing and all the fixin’s; then enjoy Manuka Honey Caramels and Chocolates as a sweet after dinner treat for the kids and the adults.

I’m not a chef, but I love to cook. I blame the generations of the Italian woman in my family for this. They pretty much made me have to like cooking. I wasn’t given much of a choice. “How are you going to meet a girl, if you can’t cook?” my Grandma would always say.So, to make sure I will be in a relationship someday, I learned how to cook and sometimes, I read blogs like www.thehomemakersjournal.com for good recipes. And it’s all secret family recipes. Why the secret? I have no idea, maybe it just sounds cool. I swear one of my family’s “secret recipe” is written on the side of a Barillo Spaghetti box, but don’t tell my Grandma-ma.

Must-Have Equipment For Your Restaurant

Starting up a restaurant is a great business idea, especially if you have the talent for cooking (or know somebody who does) that will captivate customers. When you get into the restaurant business, you’ll quickly find out that there are certain pieces of equipment that are absolutely necessary for the food preparation that you or your staff will have to do.It’s important that you build a checklist of items that you’ll need first before you even start checking out suppliers of the equipment and appliances. That means that you also have to decide on at least a temporary menu since the type of food you make will go a long way in determining the kind of equipment you’ll need on hand. But aside from the specific items, most restaurants need a core of certain equipment and appliances before they can open up for business.
