To make one for yourself, just put balsamic vinegar in a pot and boil it. That’s it. Really.
Pomegranate – Balsamic Reduction
6 tbsp. Pomegranate Juice (Either juice your own, or buy a jar at the store. My grocery store keeps this in the produce section near the pre-packaged salads.)
6 tbsp. Balsamic vinegar
How to Make It:
Combine both ingredients in a saucepan over high heat. Boil. Lower heat to medium to keep it bubbling away. Swirl the pan every few minutes to keep it from burning and check the status. When it’s reduced by half and will coat a spoon, it’s ready.
How to Use It:
- This makes a great glaze on grilled meat. Baste it onto pork, steak or chicken.
- You could also use it as a salad dressing. Try tossing it with spinach, sliced pears, a few walnuts and goat cheese.
Hello, hello. Although summer feels over, it’s not. And, I have proof in the form of regular sweat whenever I step outside.

Feminine and very ladylike, these egg salad toasts would be perfect for Mother’s Day or a spring Brunch. We had ours this year at Easter. I had originally made half the amount shown here, but quickly doubled it on the spot, because we ate all of them and everyone (except for Ellie) wanted more. Although…
I have a history with romesco sauce. Smoky and complex, I love the flavor combinations of roasted red peppers, smoked paprika, garlic and vinegar. If you haven’t had it before, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s guaranteed to up your basic, weeknight chicken by a thousand percent. As Ellie would say, “for real life.” So,…
I made this pear, goat cheese and pistachio crostini for Thanksgiving this year, but according to an old friend, I served something like this for a book club many, many years ago. I’m so glad she reminded me about the combination, because it is delicious, and I had completely forgotten about it. (which sadly happens all…
Pork chops are a staple at our house for a lot of reasons. First, and most importantly, we all think they are delicious – especially Ellie. But, they have two other attributes that put them in regular rotation at our house – they are inexpensive and cook quickly. When it comes to making pork chops,…
I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
