It is always fun when snacks are delicious and easy to prepare. We enjoy making simple chocolate drinks using AMERICAN HERITAGE® finely grated chocolate drink. To make a delicious drink I simply mixed the chocolate drink powder with sugar and boiling hot water. Then added milk to our liking and served it cold.

Summer is in full swing, bringing endless opportunities for outdoor meals and snacks to carry along on our adventures. July is National Picnic Month, and I am sure we all get a chance to do a few picnics in the summer.

Hibiscus Ginger on the Rocks

We enjoy making refreshing, healthy beverages at home to enjoy during different times of the day. Mocktails, Punches and Shrubs book by Chef Vikas Khanna has many unique combinations of recipes to make a delicious array of beverages that everyone in the family can enjoy. The recipes include herbal infusions, teas, coffees, smoothies, slushies and more. I am glad this book has alcohol free recipes, and inspires to use a variety of different combination of ingredients that we don't always think of adding to our beverages.

Pineapple Salsa and Giveaway

I enjoy making a variety of sweet desserts and savoury dishes using pineapple all year around. Since I can't find fresh pineapple when it is not in season, we opt for Dole canned pineapple and find that they work just like fresh pineapples for the recipes I make. I always have a can of pineapple at home, you never know when you need one. As a pineapple fan, I am excited to be partnering with Dole Canada to host a Dole Pineapple kit giveaway to celebrate International Pineapple Day this June 27th.

Four pages in the book has colour photography of some of the recipes. Most of the recipes on this book are dishes I regularly make at home, and I liked how well the author explains the recipes.

Trinidadian Gulab Jamun

This sweet Trinidadian Gulab Jamun snacks are different from the Indian Gulab Jamun taste and texture. It is more like a soft textured cookie or sweet murukku. These snacks will keep well in an air-tight container.

Grilling with Sabra Hummus

tofu grilled sabra hummus
I adapted Chef Matt Basile's Sabra Hummus Steak recipe below by substituting tofu instead of meat. If you are grilling tofu it needs to be enjoyed right away while it is hot. If you are using tofu, marinate it for a few hours and grill it in a preheated grilling pan as it may break when turning it.

Cheesecake served with Dole Fruits

Dole has launched a fresh innovation for ready-to-eat fruit. We found the new Dole Resealable Fruit Pouches to be a time-saving way to enjoy fresh tasting fruit instantly. It is perfect for occasions or places where we don't have the luxury of kitchen tools, for example to take during picnics and camping, for office snacks, and sports games.
