Dukkah

Posted by & filed under recipe.

DSC_0277R-sqThis crunchy, flavourful mixture can be used in many different ways.

Traditionally an Egyptian condiment served with bread and olive oil for dipping, it’s also great for sprinkling on salads, baking with roasted veggies and meats, or alternatively, try stirring some into hummus.

One of my favourite ways to have some when I’m hungry and don’t have a lot of time to make a light meal is toasting a piece of bread, mashing half an avocado onto it and sprinkling on a generous amount of dukkah.

Spiced Date Smoothie

Posted by & filed under recipe.

DSC_0033-sqThere are many reasons smoothies are so popular.

You’ll often hear people talk about how quick and easy they are to make and the never-ending variety of flavour combinations.

Most smoothies are made with a fruit and berry base, sometimes with fresh greens added in, which is generally thought of as a warm-weather flavour combination.

This smoothie is quite different in that regard.

The taste of dates and spices brings out the feeling of winter as you sip on it, but don’t let your thoughts get too cold!

’Tis the season to be jolly and eat cake!

Posted by & filed under recipe.

imgres-sq

Please enjoy and share this wonderful recipe for the BEST fruit cake by Kim DeSmoker of Vernon, BC.

This recipe has no artificial colours or additives and is dense and moist, like fruit cake should be.

You can wrap the cake well and refrigerate it for up to a month or serve it the next day!

For those who enjoy tradition, the first known fruit cake recipes came from the ancient Romans. From the Middle Ages this special treat was popular all across Europe, and from the 16th century onwards sugar from the American colonies made preservation easier and created an excess of candied fruit, making fruit cakes more affordable.
