One can never have too many zucchini recipes at this time of year, can one? What are your favorites?
Have you ever had one of those days when there’s almost nothing in your fridge so you toss a few ingredients together out of desperation, and by chance you unexpectedly create something marvellous? That’s the story of how this little salad came to be my number one go-to recipe this summer. I love it because it takes less than 10 minutes to make, it’s super healthy, it’s creamy, crunchy, delicious, and so refreshing on a hot day!
Summer flowers are not only fragrant and beautiful to look at, but some of them are also delicious to eat. I’m a long-time fan of cooking with flowers. On my blog, I’ve shared recipes for lilac scones, dandelion marmalade, and rose coconut semifreddo. But I haven’t yet shared my love for one of summer’s most prolific and yummy flowers: daylilies.
I really cannot believe it’s July already! Strawberry season is already coming to a close and because it was our first year growing strawberries, I wanted to give our beloved berries one last hurrah. So I made these. And by these, I mean: decadent, rich, creamy, gooey frozen bundles of strawberry chocolate delight.
Tunisia is a country that has a very special place in my heart because when I was 19 years old, I lived there during a 7-month cross-cultural exchange program which changed my life. I was paired up with a young Tunisian woman who became my lifelong friend and we lived and worked on volunteer projects together in our community. She has jokingly been described as my Tunisian twin separated at birth in part because she is every bit as food obsessed as I am. So when we see each other (which is not often due to the large body of water separating our two continents), we spend all of our time talking about food, sharing recipe and cooking and eating together. She recently came to stay with me for two months and gave birth to her baby boy here. You can read about our incredible adventure here and see photos of her adorable baby here.
This easy strawberry rhubarb sorbet is one of my favorite ways to celebrate spring and the arrival of rhubarb!
I love its creamy texture and bright flavour and the best part for me is that you don’t need an ice cream maker to prepare it.
Radishes are one of the great joys of spring! There’s such pleasure to be had in gently pulling the bright red bulbs right out of the ground. And at farmer’s markets, there is often a bounty of choice in radishes of many varieties, colors, shapes, and sizes.
