Snow and ice play major roles in the February drama this year. Delicate shadows of black tree limbs  on snow no longer impress me with their icy beauty.  I am rebelling and making a stand for green and yellow sunshine all over the land.

I blaze into my guerilla warfare against single digit temps  with my secret recipe – the Sugar Pea Crunch, a salad, “yes,” a main course also and snacks from noon till night.  The Sugar Pea Crunch satisfies my values for clean, simple, nourishing and delicious.  

All are dressed with a Spicy Beer Mustard/Balsamic  dressing that tastes smooth almost like a sweet liquor.  I promise exceptional flavor and easy to make.  Spicy Beer Mustard simplifies the recipe because sweetness and salt and spice are blended into the mustard for your convenience, and designed for your pleasure.
