    White Wine Sangria with Peaches, Mango + Strawberries

    Here’s a delicious way to enjoy white wine this summer. A white wine sangria is a fruity but not too sweet version of the traditional red wine sangria. It’s a great choice for a starter cocktail. Serve it up along with some yummy appetizers and munchies and you are all set. This is a no fuss type of drink. It comes together very easily and quickly, especially if you use frozen fruit. However…all good things require time to become fabulous…. You will need to plan it in advance, as it needs to chill for at least an hour, allowing all the flavours to meld together. Well worth the wait. If…

    Festive Christmas Cocktails

    It’s Christmas Eve…. And I need a cocktail! How about u? I was looking forward to serving these two fun and colourful drinks to the family, tonight and tomorrow.

In fact I promptly went out and bought myself a bottle and now I’m on a mission to discover new and delicious ways to use it. Because, something this good cannot go to waste! And sadly, like many of us I’m sure, I’ve had one too many bottles of specialty liqueurs sit on a shelf for years because I just didn’t know what to make with them.

    My #1 Appetizer – Baked Artichoke Parmesan Dip

    Today I’m sharing with you a recipe one of my fave appetizer dips. I often bring this to get-togethers and pot lucks. And I get asked for this recipe a lot so I might as well share it here…that’s the whole point of this blogging thing right! Been making this one for a long long time, but it’s still a favourite because it’s just so yummy. Not sure where the recipe came from, but my guess is a magazine. That’s where we all used to get our recipes …..you know….before Pinterest changed our lives forever. I’ve tweaked it here and there over time, to create my current version. You can throw…
