Crispy, Delicious Brussel Sprouts
Growing up, I hated brussel sprouts. And I mean H-A-T-E-D!
My aunt would always make them for us. She would boil them and they would be this soft, tasteless lump of green sitting in my plate. the kids would all come together to devise a plan to make these things go away.
This recipe is NOT for my aunt’s mushy brussel sprouts!
Drunken Tequila Lime Chicken
As summer has officially begun, it marks the start of grilling season.
I am always looking for different recipes to try and this one definitely beats the typical barbecue sauce chicken that most of us gravitate towards, only because it’s easy and doesn’t require much thinking.
Lemon Lavender Shortbread Cookies
When life gives you lemons….
Typically on dessert menus I either go for something rich and chocolaty, or something bright and fruity. I have always had a weakness for desserts with a citrus note to it – lemon meringue, key lime pie…. So it is no surprise that I fell in love with these lemon lavender shortbread cookies.
Delicious Nutella Cupcakes
This is definitely a crowd pleaser, in my experience, regardless what time of year - it always seems to be the season of Ferrero Rocher. Everyone seems to love the delicious combination of chocolate and hazelnuts (and Nutella!), so I’ve combined them into one of eveyone's favourite desserts - cupcakes!
Easy Mushroom Puff Pastry Tart
I used to be afraid of any kind of pastry and shy away from making it because I always thought it would be hard work. But then I found ready made puff pastry in the frozen section of my local grocery store. I bought a box thinking I would try it out once – if it fails, it fails, but at least I tried.
I didn’t fail!
You can’t fail.
These are just. That. Easy.
