Hot Lemon and Honey

Hot Lemon and Honey
As you probably heard from my whining, our entire crew fell sick at one point or another during our trip to Florida. Not a single person was exempt and there was not a single day when someone didn’t stay in bed (or on the couch) because they were too sick to come out and play. I was the last to be struck down, with my sniffles and fever [...]

Fourth Birthday Treat of the day

And my last birthday treat last night was key lime pie from Shula’s @swandolphin. So very good and knocks another Florida must-eat off my list! O course now I’ve had one slice of key lime pie, I want another. It was very very good!

It’s an Apple Crumb Cake Kind of Day
My lazy morning starts with coffee brightened with reindeer milk, a clean kitchen thanks to my mother-in-law, and Apple Crumb Cake. Using julienned apple, Gay Lea Gold Sour Cream, only 1 egg (oops), with some other lex-mods the cake was inspired by Martha Stewart’s New York crumb cake (the one on her site. is not the same as the one in [...]

Chef Chris McDonald’s Anticuchos

Chef Chris McDonald’s Anticuchos
Anticuchos are a Peruvian street food, grilled hot and fast, served with boiled potatoes, salad and corn,  and made from beef heart. Now before you get all squeamish, beef heart is a dark and richly flavourful cut of beef and it tastes like beef not offal.  It is all lean muscle, which is good because all the heart does all day is work, so o [...]

Meyer Lemon Mug Cake Recipe

Meyer Lemon Mug Cake Recipe
Made my first mug cake tonight. Since Gerry is gluten and wheat-free these days, and we don’t eat a lot of homebaked goods these days.  I’ve been checking these single-serving, craving-fixing mug cakes for a while now. But never really craved cake enough to bother. Last night was a little different. I had some meyer lemons left o [...]
