Sautéed Chicken with my “NEW” Citrus & Lavender Rub! Served with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes. (*if you’re seeing this on FB click on link for recipe and Spice Information).

Creamy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I think you are going to LOVE my “new” Citrus & Lavender Rub! It is earthly with scents of Fresh Lavender, and just enough Lemon and Tangerine Citrus tones to shine through. I have been working on it for many months, and am going to be releasing it to the public in the next few weeks. (stay tuned)! I have another rub also in creation too to be released that will be primarily for Seafood. If you are currently enjoying other “Just Jules in the Kitchen” Spice Rubs consider adding these to your collection.

RECIPE: The Garlic Mashed Potatoes shown in picture above have 2 Russets (peeled and boiled), Heavy Cream, Chicken Broth, 1 Whole Roasted Garlic Bulb, a 2 Tbsp of Goat Cheese, Butter, Kosher Salt and Fine Black Pepper. I use a hand mixer and then put into a Oven Dish and Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. You can serve them immediately after mixing, but I like the creamy texture they get after baking. You can also find another version of Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes in my book “PASSION My Journey through Food” on page 131.

Purchase Books and Spices at (store/shop). *Shipped items go out same day or next day.

Watch for my Greeting Card line coming in the next week! Everything on my site is great for Gifts for all occasions!

My Version of a Muffaletta Sandwich! YUM!

*If you are seeing this on FB click on link for the recipe.

I love making things spur of the moment with things I have on hand and a few of the things I always have on hand are; Sandwich Thins, Hot Giardiniera and Famous Daves Spicy Pickle Chips. Yum and must haves! Follow along with the Step by Step photos for assembling.

A must have! I order mine on line. If you are in the Midwest you can find this at the regular grocery store.
I lightly Toast the Sandwich Thin in the Toaster then lay both halves open on a piece of foil Set your Oven to Broil. On both halves spread Poupon and Mayo. On one Thin Lay Sliced Turkey, then a Slice of Swiss, then Sliced Green and Black Olives. On the other half add Sliced Swiss and a heaping of Hot Giardiniera. Put under the Broiler for about 3 minutes to melt and heat through. Set a timer so you don’t over Broil and Burn it.
Be careful when putting it together as a Sandwich. I use a Spatula and my hand to carefully put together with out the insides dropping all over.
Enjoy any time of the year!

Juicy and Tender Braised Chicken Thighs with White Wine, Oregano and Fresh Corn!



This recipe is in my Cookbook, PASSION MY Journey through Food on page 237. It is one of my favorite dinners and I make it often.  Comfort food for any time of the year and wonderful when Fresh Corn is in season from June to October.  In Arizona it seems to be best in August/September.
