Lemon Raspberry Scones with Brown Butter Glaze

Lemon Raspberry Scones

Well, unlike my last recipe, which was decidedly un-springlike, these lemon raspberry scones scream springtime to me.  The lemon flavour is just so fresh tasting.  I'm not a huge lemon fan, but I always feel like it in the springtime. I made these a few weeks ago, adapting a recipe to make them whole wheat, and using regular lemons rather than Meyer lemons.  I would really love to try Meyer lemons, as everybody seems to be raving about them these days, but I have never seen them at the store. ... read more

Pumpkin Spice Granola

So, this is entirely the wrong time of year to be posting a recipe involving pumpkin, but this pumpkin spice granola is so good, that I just couldn't wait until the fall. I love granola, and love trying new flavour combinations in it.  This one is so great that I really cannot stop eating it.  It's all I've wanted for breakfast since I made it a couple of weeks ago.  It's soon going to be all gone, and I'll have to make another batch. I may need to make the exact same combo again.  Which ... read more

Also, I'm a little scared of using the deep fryer.  One of these days I'll have to get over that ... read more

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Avocado Salsa

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Avocado Salsa

I made this grilled tilapia with mango avocado salsa a couple weeks ago for supper and it was so, so good.  So light and flavourful and summery!  It tasted like summer on a plate, although that could be just because it had finally stopped snowing and I could BBQ comfortably again.  I found this recipe on  Pinterest, searching for something to use some ripe mangoes and avocados in, and then adjusted it for what I had on hand.  It turned out really good, although I think I would add more jalapeno ... read more
