I'm Baaa-ack!

Back to reality, what a bummer. I just spent the last week and a half at a cottage in Haliburton, Ontario. It was such a fabulous and relaxing vacation. It was also a chance to enjoy some great food. We had amazing dinners each evening and were also able to dive into some local seasonal treats- including wild blueberries!

Here are some of my favourites from last week:

* Ice Cream from Kawartha Dairy (available in the GTA too)

* Boozy BBQ Brie (see picture)

* Peach Sangria (recipe below)
* Sweet Potato Crusted Mahi-Mahi (recipe from Dinosaur BBQ CookBook)

Peach Sangria

2 firm - ripe peaches, cut into thin wedges

1 orange, sliced into thin rounds

1/2 c Peach Schnapps

1/3 c granulated sugar

750 ml bottle white wine

2 c sparkling water


Stir together peaches, schnapps, wine and sugar in a large pitcher

until the sugar is dissolved. Let stand for at least 2 hours. Stir in

sparkling water and add some ice. Enjoy!
