What are the treasured items in your kitchen?

I have from my m.i.l.(may she rest in peace)a Peugeot Freres hand coffee grinder that she brought with her from France in 1960; and an old fashioned hand grinder used for making ground fish for gefilte fish.

What's for Dinner #376 - The HHH Edition --Horrid, Hideous, Hellacious! [through July 23, 2015]

It has been hot and humid down here in South East Florida-
I will be making boneless sirloin steak with onions,garlic and poblano peppers for dinner with
watercress, tomato, avocado, cucumber sald
broccoli
fresh blueberries and sour cream for dessert

Herring

imho it tastes better making it at home-
you can also combine the store bought and homemade.
you have to find the best matjes herring fillets- I use herring fillets from former Soviet Republics markets here in South Florida.

What's for Dinner #375 - the Cornzapoppin! Edition [through July 19, 2015]

I will be enjoying a lovely Florida evening with dinner of:
Florida shrimp cocktail
grilled sockeye salmon filet with tarragon/mustard sauce
grilled corn
tomato salad with basil/balsamic dressing
fresh melon slice
iced tea
glass of white wine

Do you drink tea?

For many years my drink of choice was coffee-
freshly ground and brewed with a melitta filter.
I am not sure when and why but approx.15 years ago I switched to tea.
It has been an interesting and informative experience.
My favorite teas are Taiwan oolong teas(Baozhong is my favorite) and First Flush Darjeelings.
I have a beautiful collection of gaiwans, single brew cups, small teapots, and teapets.

Since I live near Miami, I also occasionally enjoy a good cup of cuban coffee
