In ancient times, it was a tradition for Greek and Roman brides and grooms to be crowned with a laurel of oregano. I like my soft boiled egg with a generous sprinkle of oregano, especially when I've grown it myself.

Key Lime Pie

My first attempt at Key Lime Pie. Yes, it is great-tasting but too rich. One slice and you are done, until the next blue moon.

Roses on the menu

No roses left in our neighbourhood. This guy looks innocent. Not!

Terry Fox

We awakened to a blazing sun, a good day for a walk. The grass still heavy with dew as we registered and made our donation.

With our ribbons fluttering in the breeze, we head down the trail. We don't need a pep talk or jumping jacks with loud, blaring music to get us going.
There are no crowds, no bikers, no dogs so in a little over an hour we have 7km behind us. It feels good.

100 foot peaches

The neighbour brought over a second batch of peaches and seeing as the freezer is already full of bins of quartered peaches, I decided to make our favourite dessert- Peach Kuchen. I love this recipe because you mix everything right in the baking pan, no need to use a bowl, less things to wash, but it just works beautifully. Now we have a bin of Peach Kuchen in the freezer for those cold winter nights when we have cravings for summer.
