Cinnamon Apple Chips

During the Christmas holidays, we all tend to eat a lot.  And we also snack a lot more than during other times of the year.  I find it easier to snack on healthy food and fresh fruits here in Australia, as it is summer, but for all my friends and family up in the Northern…

Watermelon Margarita

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought of sharing a cocktail recipe.  The very first time I had a margarita, it was in Tijuana.  I was 19.  Yes, I know what you think… but no, I hadn’t gone there to drink to my heart’s content.  In fact, I have never been big on…

Banana Basil Jam

BANANA BASIL JAM

Left over bananas.  Why is it that I ALWAYS have left over bananas in my kitchen?  Ah, yes… wait.  It must be because my kids always beg me to buy them when they see them at the grocery store… they promise they will eat them and then, they don’t.  I am not a huge fan…

Pineapple Crumble

PINEAPPLE CRUMBLE WITH BUTTERSCOTCH SAUCE

Today’s recipe is a spur of the moment kind of recipe.  I had some fresh pineapple in the fridge and some butterscotch sauce leftover from another dish and I knew they would taste delicious together.  So, I came up with a quick dessert: pineapple and butterscotch crumble.  We all loved it.  The slight tanginess of…
