ROASTED RHUBARB SHORTCAKE

ROASTED RHUBARB SHORTCAKE

More rhubarb love for you today my Galley Peeps.  I’m not sure how long I can keep going back to my little garden patch and harvest enough fresh goodness for yet another recipe but I’ll keep going until I can’t.  Over the top enthusiasm?  Maybe, but after living in a condo apartment for so many years and I can now waltz..yes, waltz…out my back door and forage for food…you might be a little over the top too. Instead of stewing…

TIRAMISU

TIRAMISU

I posted this picture a few days ago on instagram while I was prepping for the first ever dinner guests in our new digs by the sea.

BOOZIE COCONUT HOT CHOCOLATE

BOOZIE COCONUT HOT CHOCOLATE

It’s that time of year Galley Peeps, as least for those of us above the frost line, when winds blow, and snow arrives and wintery evenings drive us indoors to share a comforting grog or two with friends. I tried this next recipe several ways – with milk, with evaporated milk… both were very nice by the way, but my taste tester’s fave was made with full fat coconut milk especially when a wee dram of rum was added, It’s…
