Mosquito Torch

Mosquitos No More! All of these spring rains are terrific for my yard and garden, but unfortunately have served as a catalyst for mosquitos to breed and ruin the tranquility of evening outdoor enjoyment. I tried citronella incense sticks and the Patio Egg with no success. Then I decided to go back to the tried…

Lettuce Keeper

Lettuce Keeper I love all types of lettuce, but love to grow iceberg in the early spring before it gets too hot outside. The rains we have had this season have contributed to a great crop that keeps me with just enough of a supply to use without being overwhelmed. It is perfect to hold…

Hummingbird Feeder

Hummingbirds I have been searching for a great hummingbird feeder for decades. I have spent money on fancy ones, inexpensive ones and everything in between. Finally, I have found one that is perfect. Last year at the Lawn & Garden Show, I was intrigued by an exhibitor showcasing THE Hummingbird Feeder. I bought one and…

Gloves

Gloves If you spend any time cooking, you also spend a lot of time with your hands in a sink filled with hot soapy water. As wonderful as my dishwasher is, there are certain things that require hand washing. For years, I used those familiar bright yellow Playtex Living Gloves because that’s what my Mother…

Wine Stoppers

Wine Stoppers Walk around any gift shop and you’ll find a mountain of cute wine stoppers that are quite frankly useless. They look nice in the bottle, but do little to seal the bottle. And if you need to lay the bottle on its side in the refrigerator, look for a mess. That’s why I…

Fruit Fly Trap

If you have produce (or garbage!) in your kitchen or have purchased some at the market, you have fruit flies. They are microscopic and feed on fruits as well as some vegetables. They are more than annoying. I hated the cheap plastic traps I saw at various retailers, but have found a lovely version that…

Garden Basket

I have been gardening for decades and in that time, I’ve used many different methods for transporting the harvest to the house. I’ve had bags, buckets, trays, tubs, and a variety of baskets. For one reason or another, they never lasted or seemed to work as well as I wanted. Last year, my husband gifted…

Welcome to Haute Flavor

This site is all about high-flavored food and drink. We eat out a great deal, so it will mostly involve totally unprofessional reviews of the places we eat in and around Nashville, Tenn. From time to time, we may also post a recipe for entertaining at home. To be honest, we’re not sure where this site…
