Lemon Square Recipe
Like our Brazilian lemonade
, lemon squares are typically a dessert that you might find at a summer picnic, not in the middle of winter. However, like the old saying goes, 'you are what you eat' so you might as well eat sunny, cheery delicious desserts, right?

Honey Wheat Sunflower Bread Recipe
Like most people, I was once intimidated by the thought of making my own bread. It's a lengthy process and (presumably) easy to flub, but I come from a long line of German women who make fantastic brrrrread from scratch all the time (and yes, it's important to roll the "r" or it doesn't count) so defeat is not an option.
This Christmas I received a stand mixer with a dough hook...

We Love Fridays: Cocktails Edition - The Super Bowl Sunday Caesar
I'm not really a sports person, but I am a total advocate of big sporting events like the Stanley Cup or in the case this weekend, the Super Bowl. The great thing about these games is that everyone's just there to chill, have a good time, eat some fried foods and of course, have a few cocktails!
If more sports included drinks, I could become a serious sports fan.
