Tabbouleh Style Salad

Is anyone else’s garden swimming in herbs? Our garden is going nuts, most notably, our parsley. I love growing parsley because I find recipes never call for very much and then I’m always left with a massive bunch that I … Continue reading

Caprese Salad

Huevos Rancheros

May 5th. Cinco de Mayo. As a Canadian, the fifth day of May means a reason to have a margarita with your favourite cuisine of south of the border(s).  I must say, we certainly don’t wait around for a single … Continue reading
