are in season. When we have fresh lettuce and kale, we’ll
eat salad twice a day, so I’ll try to come up with many
different ways to make salads.”

   “Some of my favorite memories are
of eating huge family meals at my
grandparents’ house in New Jersey.
The second you walked into the
house you were hit by the most
intensely delicious smells coming
from a roast, noodles or numerous
vegetables. My grandmother made
everything from scratch.
   “Growing up, we had fruit and
vegetable gardens. Everything my
father made was fresh and healthy.
Now, I take my kids to the local
farmer’s market. Arizona is a great
place for farmer’s markets because
the weather is perfect for year-round
The ONLY peppermills worthy of
the World’s Best Peppercorns!
We designed our peppermills to be fully adjustable—
from shaker grind to coarse. To fill the peppermill and
adjust the grind, unscrew the nut on top of the mill, lift
off the wood cap, fill with peppercorns, then place the
top back on. The tighter the top is screwed on, the finer
the ground pepper will be. If the top is screwed halfway
down, there will be a large opening in the grinding
mechanism, allowing big chunks of pepper to fall
through. If the top is screwed down tightly, there will be
a small opening for fine pepper. Our salt shakers have
larger holes in the top and are designed to be used with
coarse style flake salt. Fine table salts may pour too
quickly out of the top.

*All peppermills come filled with Tellicherry
black peppercorns and salt shakers with
Kosher style flake salt.

Pecan Crisps
Be sure to remember this recipe from Ruth Carter
when the holidays roll around, but by all means bake
a few batches now for “practice.”

      1        Cup butter (Ruth prefers unsalted)
      ⁄2
      1
               Cup powdered sugar
      2        tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
      2        Cups pecans, freshly ground* or finely                                          Ruth Carter knows how to accom-
               chopped

  1   3
          ⁄4   Cups all-purpose flour
      1
          ⁄4   tsp. salt (if butter is unsalted)
 1
  ⁄2-1         Cup extra powdered sugar for rolling
               cookies
      1        tsp. PENZEYS CINNAMON per 1⁄2 Cup
               powdered sugar or to taste

Preheat oven to 325°. Cream the butter until light
and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the 1⁄2 cup
powdered sugar and VANILLA and mix well. Add
the pecans, flour and salt (if using) and mix. Form
into small crescents or fingers about 11⁄2 inches
long. Bake at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes. As soon as
the cookies are cool enough to handle, roll them in
a mixture of powdered sugar and CINNAMON.

*Using a grinder or food processor for the pecans
gives the best results because more oil is released
and the cookies are less crumbly.

Prep. time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 15-20 minutes
Yield: 3-4 dozen

                        Single Strength Vanilla
                        35% alcohol. Pure extract from the highest quality 100%
                        premium Madagascar “Bourbon Islands” vanilla beans. These
                        beans have a rich and complex, smooth, true flavor. The cool-
                        perking process retains the bean's full flavor, along with all of the
                        desirable vanilla side notes. With over 400 flavor components in
                        every high-quality vanilla bean, artificial vanilla (which contains
                        only one–synthetic vanillin) will never come close to matching
                        the wonderful richness of pure vanilla extract. This extract is 10%
                        stronger than the pure vanilla extract sold in supermarkets, and
                        has the great Madagascar flavor. Ingredients: water, alcohol, sugar
                        and vanilla bean extractives.

  I   t’s all about community,” says
Beatrice Minnis of Julian, California,
a community of 1,600 residents in
the mountains east of San Diego. “I
live in a tiny town with a nice bunch
of people who look out for each
other and help you any number of
ways.
   “Once last winter when we were
in for a bad patch of snowy weather,
a complete stranger showed up to
make sure I had plenty of firewood.
He brought in enough bundles to
practically fill half my living room.”
   Beatrice, 81, does her part by
baking Buttermilk Pie in large
batches for potlucks and fundraisers.
“I am blessed with a great and
reliable oven, and the pies come
out beautifully and make the house
smell like heaven. I use your Double

                                The Next Chapter

                                   There is so much that defines Arizona and draws people
                                to it. Arizona’s history, vibrant border state culture, sunny
                                climate, and incredibly scenic beauty combine to create a
                                powerful draw for people with a spirit to do something
                                more. While some people reach a point in life where they
                                are ready to relax and enjoy the life they’ve created, others
                                wish for one more new thing. Not so much to escape their
                                lives, or recreate themselves, as much as a desire to find
                                themselves in an entirely new surrounding. I once heard
                                this spirit well described as the desire to “Write one more
                                chapter.”
                                   The cool thing about writing a new chapter is there are
                                so many possibilities in the process. One is that the desire
                                to have the time and strength and energy to do something
                                more really can open your eyes to the value of changing
                                your ways. While many dream of changing their ways, the
                                people of Arizona oftentimes succeed in embracing a
                                heart-healthier way of life. The change can be quite tasty.
                                Give Arizona Dreaming a try; the right blend for right now,
                                and for our futures as well.
