Mango Tequila Guacamole

I know you are thinking guacamole is delicious without tequila…but it is fabulous with tequila!!! This recipe is from a liquor store in Edmonton, LIQUOR depot Advertisements

Strawberry, Tequila & Aperol Slushy Drink!!

When Murray & I were in Italy about 9 years ago, we discovered a delicious drink..the Aperol Spritz. Once we were home, we tried to get restaurants to make it, but not many of them had the Aperol. It wasn’t easy to find in the liquor stores in Edmonton either. Over the years, it became…

Slushy Blended Mojito

Whenever we entertain in the summer, we make this drink! This is Murray’s ‘job’ & he makes them perfectly! Cold & slushy…this blended mojito is delicious!

Avocado Hummus

I love guacamole & I love hummus…so I combined them. Easy. Also good because I had 1 can of chickpeas & a couple of avocado that were getting nice & ripe so I needed to use them.

Nacho Bake

Hummus & Baked Pita Chips

There are so many recipes for Hummus & so many options to buy it ready-made in the grocery stores. But..I like making it myself. It is fast, easy & I can have it on a whim. I started making my own over 25 years ago and have come up with a recipe that we love….

Layered Nacho Bake- Vegetarian

Run don’t walk to the grocery store so you have time to put this together for the game..or anytime actually! This is a cheesy yummy nacho bake that you will need a fork for! Layers of nacho chips, refried beans, salsa and lots of cheese..nothing bad here!

Smoked Salmon Spread

Well, this was delicious!  Smoked salmon, cream cheese, mayo, horseradish, capers and parsley to garnish. It was all I could do but not eat the whole bowl at one time. Seriously!! In November I was in Toronto and had a smoked salmon sandwich on a bagel at the restaurant Schmaltz Appetizing, 414 Dupont St., and they had horseradish…
