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.
