Blogging from A-Z • O

Today is brought to you by the letter "O"!

(Disclaimer: Although this is typically a blog about my beadwork, I do let other parts of my life seep into this blog.  Food and beverage is a huge part of my life as I am the marketing director of a fantastic restaurant group!)

O is for Orange! 

Blood orange, that is!  Blood oranges play a big role in our bars and kitchens, with their vibrant color and their jacked up flavor.

But while they do play a big role adding color and flavor, they sometimes just have a supporting role. Blood orange is reduced into a gastrique for this seared tuna hors d'oeuvre.

But blood orange is big and bold in this Blood Orange Sangria! 

And isn't it a lovely partner to these yellow beets and micro greens!?

Come back tomorrow to see what we have in store for the letter "P"!


  1. I've never had a blood orange. Are they sweet?

  2. yum, love blood oranges - they do have so much flavor! and all these dishes look amazing!

  3. I want to make this page my dinner...with two more sangrias, please.


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
