Intro

*Thanks to the Random Number Generator we have a winner!! Brandon, from Kitchen Konfidence – CONGRATULATIONS! Thank you so much for all of you who entered. It was so fun to hear from so many of you!

Every time I hear the rumble of a truck roll down our street my heart jumps in my chest. Sometimes it’s the garbage man and that’s just not really that exciting. But there are times when it’s FedEx truck delivering a package. Those are my favorite times. Sort of like a whisper of Christmas even though it’s something I may have ordered for myself and it’s no surprise what’s inside. It rarely matters much what it is I just love getting packages in the mail. Although if the package comes with some nice tunes, three beautiful recipe cards and a fun ingredient to play with in the kitchen – well, then that’s just about the best package I can imagine.

Every month Turntable Kitchen does just that. They turn out stunning little packages and ship them off all over so every one can have their heart jump a little when the delivery guy knocks at the door. It’s a Pairings Box and this month I got theΒ privilegeΒ of selecting a special ingredient (one of my current favorites) and creating three recipes to highlight said ingredient. It’s all hush hush, which makes the arrival of the little brown box that much more exciting.

I’m super excited to be able to give one of you the Pairings Box for April. If you’re interested in winning April’s box with my recipes just leave a comment below. I’ll select a winner this weekend.

In the meantime check out Turntable Kitchen (to swoon at that sweet little baby girl!!) and their Pairings Boxes.

I’ll be back soon with recipes, a video and bacon. It’s a great week here.

    Hey Ashley,
    I love turntable kitchen. Who doesn’t love mixing food and great music?
    Pretty photos on this post. You always have a way with pairing the simplest of ingredients to look so divine. Now I want to roast some carrots and slice up an avocado — maybe listen to some Hannah Georgas, Lord Huron or MØ while cooking. (Some of my new favorites.)
    I can’t wait for the video! Your beautiful video last summer introduced me to the Bahamas and now I cannot get enough of them — so thanks! (Saw the show here in Madison a few months ago!)

    My daughter in law’s birthday is coming up and she is a foodie, so I was so excited to see this idea.

    I love this! My daughter was born 7 weeks premature and when we finally got to take her home there were several little packages waiting for me from friends and family. I opened them slowly, savored them, it was the best, little sweet surprise after 2 months of being in the hospital. The pairing box looks awsome! I’d love another little surprise to savor!

In my day job as a pedestrian postal carrier, I am continually tickled and startled by the eager customers whose front doors squeak open as soon as my front foot taps the porch. I’m happy to be able to delight them with a surprise — even though most packages are Amazon shipments that they ordered for themselves.
