Vidalia onions sweating on the stove in a bouquet of seasoning preparing to make spaghetti. A nice mix of oil and butter with a heaping spoonful of Italian seasoning, a dash of parsley, a bit of salt and pepper. The crowning spice is smoked Hungarian paprika. In a bit I’ll add an indecent amount of chopped, fresh garlic and a smidge of chili flakes. Then … Continue reading Sweet smell of onions
