The cooler temperatures and the changing leaves can only mean one thing, the holidays are almost here. A few weeks ago I shared tips to plan the perfect Friendsgiving brunch and now I’m back to share some more tips for a dinner party with some fabulous products that are perfect for a Friendsgiving celebration.

Start off your celebration with Rodney Strong Wines. These Sonoma County wines are the perfect pairing for your Friendsgiving celebration. I was sent two new to me wines, the Rodney Strong Sonoma County Cabernet and a Rodney Strong California Chardonnay.

The Rodney Strong Sonoma County Caberne Sauvignon is rich with dark cherry, plum and baking spices. The delicious fruit is accompanied by black pepper notes, crushed violet and cassis. The palate has medium tannins, lingering spicy oak flavors with a velvety lush finish.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is great paired with a grilled steak, rack of lamb or grilled winter vegetables.

The Rodney Strong California Chardonnay displays aromas of lemon curd and apple with hints of toasty oak and baking spices. The finish is long and lingering with silky notes of fresh pear and pineapple.

This wine is great with grilled asparagus, seared tuna with a mango-avocado salsa or my favorite, an apple and brie grilled cheese.

frozen herbs with pasta on table

Whatever recipe you decide to create, Dorot Gardens is ready to spice things up. I LOVE cooking with fresh herbs from my garden but now that it’s November and most of the herbs are done for the season my go-to is Dorot Gardens.

I’ve used these for years and my freezer is always stocked with them. Especially the garlic and basil.

The pre-portioned  crushed garlic is already peeled, chopped and measured for you. Making it effortless and easy to season and flavor your cooking. 1 Dorot Garden Garlic cube = 1 garlic clove,  Great in the Kitchen For cold sauces for salads, or hot sauces for pasta or casserole dishes. Adds a marvelous taste and aroma to meat, chicken and vegetable dishes.

Garlic is considered “the antibiotics of nature” and I use it in almost every recipe I cook to. It’s thought to help ease infections and inflammations.

Basil is another favorite of mine. Chopping and measuring basil can be tedious but Dorot Gardens basil eliminates the chopping and measuring, making it effortless to season and flavor your cooking.

1 cube of Dorot Gardens basil = 1 teaspoon. It’s a quick & delicious way to season your foods.
