Ever get bored of eating the same things over and over? Well, I have decided to start a weekly recipe submission called Divine Dish
Here’s how it works:
On Sunday, I will post a theme for the week. If you want to play you need to post your recipe on your blog by Friday (I like photos ) ) If you played all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog telling me that you played. At the end of the week, I will choose my favourite recipe out of the submissions and feature it on my blog with a link to your site! I will also be keeping a record of all recipes submitted (not just the featured ones) and will be creating a Divine Dish Cookbook with all submissions which will be available next Christmas! I encourage everyone to participate – it will be fun and we will all get to try different recipes.
Many of you already post your fabulous recipes on your blogs so all you have to do is let us know you played )
Tell your friends and fellow bloggers – the more the merrier!!

Fresh Bruschetta

July 2, 2006

I promised to post my Famous Fresh Bruschetta Recipe when my herbs were ready so here it is!!
This recipe can be adjusted according to how much bruschetta you want to make.

5 ripe vine tomatos – diced
1/2 of a large onion – diced
1/4 cup of fresh basil – chopped (I like using a tonne of basil)
1/2 cup of Feta Cheese – chopped or broken into small chunks
Salt to taste (the feta cheese has a lot of salt in it so you may not need any.)
1 clove of garlic – finely chopped

It’s best if it is served if it has been in the fridge for 1 hour or more (so the flavours can all come together)

Serve with 1/2 inch thick slices of french baguette (you can toast them in the oven if you like but I like everything to be served as is)

Let me know what you think!

Beverage of Choice

May 16, 2006

Being pregnant in the summer sure has its ups and downs. The ups are all the fruit and veggies that are available and the downs are dying of heat when it isn’t really that hot. Anyhow, I was watching the children’s show Hi-Five with my daughter and they made this drink that had my mouth watering!
You need a blender that can crush ice.
1 cup of pure orange juice
1 cup of ice cubes
2 cups of fresh strawberries
Blend until smooth.
It’s so easy and it is something that I used to make all the time, but forgot how good and simple it is. I will be drinking these all summer long I can tell you that for sure! Elizabeth loves them too. I’ve made them with yogurt too and it ads a bit of tang – yummy πŸ™‚ Enjoy!
Stay tuned for my Famous Bruschetta Recipe!!

Garden Day

May 7, 2006

I know this isn’t a post of a recipe, but it is a post of my most favourite herbs and other stuff that I use in my recipes!
We planted Basil, Cilantro, Dill, Garlic Chives, Patio Tomatos, Chili Peppers, Cucumbers and Strawberries – oh and we threw in some Lavendar and a Mini Rose.
As soon as the basil is ready I will post my famous Bruschetta Recipe.
