March 17, St. Patrick’s Day

A day when everyone can feel a little Irish!

Spring is in the air! Celebrate warm weather with a casual-yet lovely- spring dinner!

March 8, International Women’s Day

Here is a tasty sweet and sour pie stuffed with blueberries.

Lemons

If there’s one fruit you should always have on hand, it’s lemons. From their zest to their juice, they enhance so many recipes and make everything a little brighter!

Grill time!

Warmer weather means it’s time for backyard burgers, tender kebabs, sizzling steaks, BBQ ribs, cold refreshing drinks and gatherings of family and friends.

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata are chicken breast cutlets coated in flour, fried and served with a sauce of butter, lemon juice, white wine or broth and capers. Simple ingredients, but the result are great, delicious, and tasty!

Slow cooker (crock pot)

Slow cooking allows flavors to steep and blend together. It circulates heat and liquid so food stays moist.

Breakfast

Whether it’s a special occasion, or just the weekend, one of these breakfast ideas will be the best part of waking up!

Love my garden

I love gardening so much, it makes my world beautiful. I have a vegetable/herb garden, flower gardens, fruit trees and berries. When I am outside I feel happy, too bad we don’t have nice weather all year but when we do, we are gardening! 😉
