Slow Simmered Spanish Meatballs with Green Olives #Recipe | Exclusive Interview with Chef Annie Sibonney
In honor of Spanish Heritage Month, we had the wonderful opportunity to interview Chef Annie Sibonney, Cooking Network star and Spanish cuisine expert on all things entertaining and olives!
Did you know that Spain is the world leader in production and export of table olives? Olives from Spain are naturally sugar-free and contain monounsaturated fats, which can help improve cholesterol levels and reduce heart attack/stroke risk. Harvest time occurs in September and October, the perfect time to enjoy the rich aroma and robust taste of fresh olives!

|Thanks to Fagor, we're discovering how quick, easy and energy-efficient induction cooking can be!|
Bourbon Street Chicken naturally has it's roots steeped in Louisiana history, but is also a wildly popular dish that's often found on buffets at several popular restaurants my family likes to enjoy. We certainly love enjoying this flavorful dish but all the extra calories that accompany it in the buffet line are not quite as desirable!
I set out to tweak and adapt a home skillet recipe that captures the same intensity of flavor and I have to say, rivals the best of the best we've ever had dining out. Of course, using fresh ingredients and our favorite Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey certainly steps things up a bit!

|Thanks to the folks at Dawn via Double Duty Divas we're getting our bicycles ready for winterization! This is a sponsored post but all thoughts, opinions and experiences are that of Rural Mom.|
Leaves are falling faster than the raindrops and frost has already begun to settle each morning in Kentucky. As the day grow colder and winter looms, it's time to garage and winterize all our vehicles including bicycles. Properly cleaning and storing our bikes ensures they will not degrade over the winter and will be ready to ride come spring!
A good scrub down will remove dirt, grease, grime and organic materials that may decompose over the winter month. To help with our weatherization, we turn to our trusted kitchen pal Dawn to help out. In the same way Dawn cuts through greasy messes in the sink, it zaps away dirt and grime from our bicycles, too.
