Potato & Tomato Pesto Salad. With the addition of bacon and pine nuts, this dish is the perfect barbeque or picnic salad.
Zucchini, Tomato and Herb Tart. I have been adding herbs to almost everything I make these days. I can't help it. They seem to be calling my name from the little garden. Who am I to deny them?

Dragon's Chicken Wings. They have classic portuguese seasonings and are savoury with just the right amount of heat. I dare you to just eat one.

Herbed Artisan Bread. Ah, bread. For me, it needs to be crusty on the outside and warm and chewy on the inside.
Peachy Sunrise Smoothie with peach schnapps and framboise. A delicious start to a weekend morning.
Lemon Butterfly Cupcakes. The lemon flavour is subtle so it's perfect for kids as well as adults. The kids loved the butterfly design but I think the adults loved them even more.
