REFRESHING BERRY SMOOTHIE

Each summer I stock pile my freezer with berries…..strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.  They are wonderful to have for pies, crisps, cakes, coulis…and smoothies throughout the year.  And by using frozen berries in a smoothie – you do not need ice – so you end up with a more concentrated berry taste.

There are no measurements – [...]

ICED LEMON MINT TEA

Years ago, I’m guessing 15-17, I had a small studio downtown.  There was a cafe next door that served, what I thought then, was the best Iced Tea I have ever had….yeah right….lemon juice from concentrate-yuck, ridiculous amounts of sugar, ohh no!  I asked them for the recipe, and after a short time, began having [...]
