Sparkling Strawberry Basil Lemonade | Culinary Cool

Sparkling Strawberry Basil Lemonade

This is a fun and delicious spin on classic lemonade that uses ripe strawberries and fresh basil. Dare I say, summer has finally arrived?  It was a rainy, gloomy June, and as I write this, several communities in Southern Saskatchewan are in a state of emergency due to heavy rains and flooding.  Not quite how I hoped…

Greek Quinoa Stuffed Peppers | Culinary Cool

Greek Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

This recipe is a simple, meatless meal that is loaded with Greek flavors. ‘Round here, I’m usually solely responsible for thinking of supper ideas.  So when my boyfriend suggested stuffed peppers (something we have never made before) I was shocked.  For one thing, I have no idea how he even knows what a stuffed pepper…

Cinnamon Crumb Surprise Cake

A few weeks ago, I had brunch with my two best friends.  We’ve known each other since we were 2 years old and we consider each other sisters.  We’ve been through everything together, from making mud pies, having sleep-overs, road trips, graduation, weddings.   You name it, we’ve probably done it together.   And we tell…

Bruschetta Pizza | Culinary Cool

Bruschetta Pizza

Some may find it peculiar, that a person who isn’t the biggest fan of raw tomatoes, may actually like bruschetta.  When I eat it, I usually dust off about half the tomatoes, and go for a piece that’s heavy on the feta and balsamic.   I can support pretty much anything if it’s backed by…
