While we are still not ready for any “over-the-pond” adventures, we continue to find the treasures in our backyard. A recent trip to Sonoma County and Jenner was inspired by our culinary sentiments. Who could pass up artisan cheese, good wine and seafood? But of course, a trip to the Sonoma Coast would not be […]
After a long, lingering and enjoyable warm fall, Murphys finally turned winter-cold. The perfect setting for Jan and me to indulge in a cozy evening filled with comfort food and the crackles from our woodstove keeping us warm and comfy. Since we had a rare (for this time of year) day off, I decided braised […]
This year for Thanksgiving, my family and I decided to try something different and spatchcocked our turkey. I will say you will not get the same presentation of the whole turkey for everyone to oooh and ahhhh over right before carving into the bird. However, you will have everyone ooohing and ahhhing as they take […]
Back in January 2020, Jan and I took a trip to Palm Springs. We are a bit embarrassed to admit this was our very first stay in this unique part of California, other than the “drive-thrus” on other trips.

This is an easy one pan dish that overflows with flavor and crunch. It can be served as a salad, side dish, or a main if you serve it over rice or add beans.
R&R Getaway The anticipation and planning of vacations are one of Jan’s and my favorite past times. We love to immerse ourselves in different cultures and cuisines. It thrills us that our travels abroad have enhanced and expanded The Tin’s spice selection, introducing new spices and dishes to you. This year with Covid still lingering, […]
A sweet, tangy, crunchy and healthy take on beet salad. This can become a kaleidoscope of flavors and colors as you “play” with the ingredients.
Mediterranean Ricotta Spread The ricotta’s mild taste combined with the aromatic citrus flavoring from the freshly squeezed lemon juice and the mouthwatering herbaceous Greek Seasoning notes makes this gourmet spread a crowd-pleaser.

An easy to prepare concentrate that allows for a variety of beverages. Hibiscus tea is great just as is. Its clean, tart profile is a perfect thirst quencher on hot summer days. Or add sweeteners (simple syrups, Stevia, honey, maple syrup), club soda, white wine, fruit to add complexity to the flavor. Ingredients: 2 oz […]
