FRITTO MISTO WITH ROSEMARY LEMON DIP

FRITTO MISTO WITH ROSEMARY LEMON DIP

This is such a beautiful dish, and very flavourful. Veggies fried in rosemary oil with a lemon rosemary mayo is a great dish to enjoy in the summer. You can use all sorts of vegetables, but I really like the zucchinis and cauliflower. The chickpeas […]

PASTA VONGOLE

PASTA VONGOLE

Last summer I went to the Amalfi Coast. The one dish everyone was telling me I had to try was pasta vongle – pasta with clams. I had it a few times when I was there and at one restaurant they added slices of zucchini […]

LIMONCELLO COOKIES

LIMONCELLO COOKIES

These cookies are a cross between a cake and a cookie. They are soft and chewy. The yogurt is what gives them their texture and balances the sweetness from the limoncello. They are lovely on their own as they are slightly sweet, but with the […]

ROSEMARY LIMONCELLO SPRITZER

ROSEMARY LIMONCELLO SPRITZER

One of my favourite things to do is add herbal infusions into my cocktails. Last summer I went to Capri and they have this drink you can get all over the island. It was limoncello and soda water over ice. It was a nice refreshing […]

LEMON SODA

LEMON SODA

  I love ice cream, good ice cream that is. In the grocery store I find that Häagan daz is my favourite but we don’t get that many flavours or the new flavours. One of my favourites from them was the green tea vanilla honey. […]

CITRUS HERB ROASTED CHICKEN

CITRUS HERB ROASTED CHICKEN

  My friend Jessica and I have a birthday tradition. Every year for our birthdays we make each other dinner. Given that Jessica and I are both foodies these aren’t your average dinners. Last year Jessica made me homemade ravioli and she always has the […]

CROUTON SALAD WITH ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

CROUTON SALAD WITH ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

  This is the salad I made to accompany the Citrus Herb Chicken for my friend’s birthday dinner. It’s light but filling and was a great side for this summer meal. Croutons: 1/2 a loaf of rosemary bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes Olive oil, for […]

RASPBERRY ROSE ICE CREAM

RASPBERRY ROSE ICE CREAM

  I went to a gala and they were serving raspberry rose gelato. It was amazing and of course the first thing that came to my mind was that I have to make this at home. I used my quick no-churn ice cream base and […]
