I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

"Eat Your Colors" Summer Slaw

Take advantage of the summer's bounty with this colorful vegetable slaw!

Julienne cut:

1 yellow zucchini
1 green pepper
2 carrots
7-8 radishes

I had small radishes, but if yours are larger, 2 or 3 might do.

Add:

5-6 cooked broccoli flowerets
1 spear fresh pineapple, sliced (reserving juice when cutting whole pineapple)


For the dressing mix:

2 tbsps reserved pineapple juice
zest and juice of 1 lemon
6 fresh basil leaves, torn
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp honey
1/8 tsp salt

Toss dressing ingredients together with veggies about an hour before serving.
Isn't it beautiful ?
