|Savannah stories are secret |
ingredients for a good time
during a Savannah visit.
Here innkeeper Jackie Heinz,
channels "Forrest Gump" --
a movie by the same name
that was filmed
primarily in Savannah, GA.
Jackie was reared in Kentucky, the land of Mint Juleps and Churchill Downs. She learned to cook and bake in her grandmother's kitchen.
When you visit, ask Jackie to see her grandmother's rolling pen, crafted by a family member.
As St. Patrick's Day approaches, we were perusing for unique recipes. We stumbled across an article about Irish Beef Stew in Mrs. Belanger's blog. She praised "the best Irish beef stew ever...." The "secret ingredient turned out to be parsnips!" she writes.
Now that was a moment we'll remember! Someone generously sharing the secret ingredient!
CAN'T YOU RECALL THOSE HAPPY MOMENTS WHEN YOU LEARNED AN IMPORTANT, SECRET INGREDIENT?!
We appreciate learning secrets to success, and at Zeigler House Inn, we are happy to share.
From knowledgeable chefs or tourism insiders, it is the little tips -- the secret ingredients -- that seem to make things simple! Take, for example, Jackie's recipe for Red, White and Blue White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.
Jackie gives tips to the reader. It's "not recommended for outside warm weather". She reminds the reader "chocolate will not adhere to wet strawberries", "blue sugar is available at Michael's craft store", and to melt the chocolate in "45- or 60-second intervals, stirring between each time to ensure that the chocolate is melting evening and not burning". [Recipe is below.]
Jackie's generosity to share recommendations helps the novice and offers fresh tips for the expert cook.
