MANGO CILANTRO SALAD DRESSING Just a really quick post on the dressing I used for the salad I posted previously.  Why not try this easy and delicious salad dressing made from mango and cilantro?

baked chicken fingers
Adding coconut crusting in the mix is another fun way of making chicken fingers. Instead of using panko, let's go crazy and use coconut! This is a real family favourite, but frying has always been a chore, what with all the greasy clean up afterwards. Not to mention all the unwanted calories frying adds to food (I'd rather save those calories...
I love the simplicity of pesto.  It’s very easy to work with, yet it packs amazing flavours. For this recipe, I added lavender to make things even more interesting. I didn’t add too much of it though, as I didn't want it overpowering the basil and the other ingredients in the pesto. Where did I get my lavender inspiration? If you're...

What can be more perfect on a lazy summer Sunday than the goodness of a berry galette? Galette is basically a free form pie - very charmingly rustic. In this case, we don't have to worry about...
Chocolate Ganache Cake, made pretty by the sweet edge
No matter what the season, amirite?  A good chocolate ganache cake is always appreciated. Unless, of course, you don't like chocolate (I haven't met someone who doesn't). I've always thought that a baker needs a good chocolate cake recipe. With that, good quality ingredients are best to use most especially for cocoa powder and chocolate (f0r ganache). For this recipe,...
