Summer Favorite

Hemingway, super lush, enjoyed these a lot.  He wanted them in frozen shot version.  I prefer a more gentle version, it comes in a glass and is larger than a shot.

1 measure Dry Vermouth

3 measure Gin – I prefer Baltimore Long Shot

1 or 2 dashes Orange Bitters

Stir well.  Strain into a cocktail glass. Add Olive.

For a Gibson, forget the olive. Use a small cocktail onion.

Love of Split Pea Soup

One of the go to comfort foods in my kitchen is split pea soup, yellow or green. It is a Finn thing.

Maryland Crab Cakes

Maryland is famous for the Chesapeake Bay blue crabs which are the best in the world.  Sweet and delicious, these crabs make the best crab cakes.  My ancestors have been enjoying these for thousands of years!

This website is under construction at the same time Buena Ventura is under rebuild.  Sometimes cooking is heating a pot pie in the microwave or digging around for the submarine sandwich hiding in the refrigerator.
