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.

This cake recipe has a delicious cooked filling made for strawberries & rhubarb. So, there is a bit of a ‘process’ to put this together but it is worth it.

This delicious marinade is from my friend Rhonda. She uses it on her flank steak, but it is good on anything. I am using it on a mock tenderloin that I am going to BBQ. Continue reading “Marinade with soya sauce & honey”
This is one of the easiest soups I have ever made!! I was a bit skeptical about it when I looked at the recipe, but it was a recipe of my aunt’s, so I decided to have faith & give it a try! Continue reading “Cold Beet Borscht”
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!
Simple & delicious, this potato salad is just good! I make it at least a couple of times during the summer. As with almost every food, there are many recipes for potato salad but when I want a side dish that compliments the rest of the meal without overshadowing it with too strong a flavour, I make my potato salad this way!
