On the weekend I like to make myself a really nice brew. A tasty tea for me and only me, just like today’s recipe – Ginger Lime Mint Tea.
Happy New Year! It’s the first day of 2018 and what better way to celebrate than with a tasty tipple. I suggest this smashing cocktail – Lemon Ginger Bourbon Fizz. It’s flipping wonderful.
A passionfruit blackberry bourbon cocktail is a wonderfully refreshing cocktail ideal for the summer, and perfect for bourbon lovers. It’s a subtle smokey yet very fruity combination of flavors that leaves you wanting more.
I have a brand new recipe to share with you today, seared tuna on rice cakes.
It’s always nice to serve your guests something interesting for the holidays, something that they wouldn’t ordinarily make for themselves. But creating a recipe such as this often poses a conundrum. Creating something new and interesting, requires more effort than usual and can feel a little daunting.
Seared tuna on rice cakes solves that conundrum. You essentially need to create three separate items, rice cakes, ginger slaw, and of course, seared tuna, then pile them on top of each other – easy!
On my quest for a more disciplined life, I’ve injected a twice weekly detox juice into my diet. A juice that helps release the toxins from my body and also work on my wavering digestive system. Strangely, this juice derived from a request from my friend Trevor, for a ginger cucumber juice with pimento. He wanted me to make him a sweet and spicy concoction with a mound of sugar. Don’t worry I resisted, I just couldn’t create a sickly sweet drink and hail it as a juice that provides benefit to the body. So here’s what I ended up with, a ginger cucumber apple detox juice. It is exactly what I need, a gloriously tasty juice that aids the body, hopefully Trevor will love it too.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without shortbread, and ginger shortbread is my fav. Shortbread cookies are not only a perfect tea time snack, but they are also a great gift. Wouldn’t you appreciate a box of these wonderful cookies? I know I would.
I think apple crumble was the first thing I cooked in high school. I had a class called Home Economics, where we were taught not only how to cook, but how to run a home. Very provincial – right? Nonetheless, I was taught well. My apple crumble is a thing of beauty. This baby will melt in your mouth, but not before alerting all your other senses to take note and enjoy!

Warm days and warm nights call for my mango ginger lemonade. A rich and subtly sweet lemonade with a ginger kick.
I made some on Memorial Day for my family and friends, some requested a little spike and others preferred to have it plain as is. For some spike, I’d suggest adding either vodka or a white rum. Vodka will just add the kick you need, but as white rum is mostly sugar cane based it will add another dimension to the lemonade, really round out the flavor.
I used champagne mangoes which are also called Atualfo mangoes in Mexico, or honey or baby mangoes. They are small kidney shaped with golden yellow skins and velvety flesh and have an intensely sweet taste when ripe. The pit in the middle of the fruit is flat, so it’s easier to cut and extract the flesh. If you need help on how to slice or dice a mango click here.
