I found Patron Orange Liqueur today & used that & Corzo.
I also used Agave Nectar – but how much Agave should I use for a single margarita? I’m using 2 ounces of fresh lime juice, 1 oz of Tequila, 1/2 oz of Orange Liqueur, full shaker of ice. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

On Memorial Day

Memorial Day-Every year I think it will get easier. It never really does. Every year I am left missing my dad and wondering what I could have done different to keep him here; to help him.

Every day, 22 Veterans take their lives, and this Friday, 3 years ago, my Dad was one of them.

I’ve been sitting on this post, trying to think of what to say and I am finding the words aren’t coming out the way I want them to. I am still angry, I am still …read more

Peach and basil white sangria

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

Peach and basil white sangria - take a sip, close your eyes and say 'ahhh!'

Helloooo, sunshine! We’ve been having fairly mixed weather here lately – one day it’ll be chucking it down, and the next it’ll be gloriously sunny. Today is the latter, thankfully! So let’s make the most of the sun while it’s here, and celebrate with sangria!

(which, by the way, you have to say in an obnoxiously bad Spanish accent: sangriiiiaaaa!)

Classic Strawberry Shortcake – Thanks, Grandpa!

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

I was visiting my mom last summer, and overheard her and my aunt talking about making strawberry shortcake using “dad’s” recipe. They were obviously talking about my grandfather, which was surprising, since I had no idea he baked.


I remember he did a lot of cooking growing up, but it was things like frittata, meat sauce, or polenta. I never once saw him bake anything sweet. Nevertheless, he apparently gets credit for inventing our official family recipe for strawberry shortcake, which I’ve adapted here.

What he had done was taken the strawberry shortcake recipe off the box of a …read more

Cheese and chive savoury flapjacks

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

Cheese and chive savoury flapjacks - these are SO easy to make.

I don’t know my neighbours very well. I can tell you what music they’re into, because I hear it through the walls (mostly Ed Sheeran, if you’re interested), and I can tell you when their kids’ birthdays are because of the banners they hang on their front door… but ask me what they do for a living, and I wouldn’t have a clue. It’s actually really sad! And I’m sure there are millions of other people in the same boat.

The Big Lunch is an annual event that aims to remedy this situation, and encourages people to …read more

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

This week seems to have been a pretty busy one. I’m not one for filling my diary with dinners, social events and brunches all day, every day. I don’t think I could call myself a social butterfly. I like to have at least 3 days a week, event free, just to know I can come back to the boat and relax. To come home and try out a new recipe, I like to have time to create in the kitchen and not feel rushed. Some days, I just like to flop down on our (albeit rather uncomfortable) sofa, put my …read more

Photo Essay: Meals on Wheels’ Star Chefs and Vintner’s Gala 2015, part 2

By Irvin

Meals on Wheels' Star Chefs and Vintners Gala 2015

A couple of weeks ago I shared a number of photos form the Meals on Wheels Star Chefs and Vintners Gala that I attend back in April. They raised an astonishing $2.6 million from that event alone, which is just fantastic. My partner AJ and I tried our hardest to run around and take as many photos as possible (and to eat as much as possible but come on, we’re only human. We ate maybe 1/3 of what was offered). What I didn’t have a chance to show you was the three-course meal that came AFTER those appetizers, the behind …read more

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

By Elise

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Raise your hand high if you love blueberry pancakes! This is a quick and easy blueberry buttermilk pancake recipe taught to me years ago by my young friend Audrey. Buttermilk is a classic ingredient in pancakes, adding both a light tang in flavor and some acidity for leavening. We don’t always have buttermilk in the fridge though, but you can easily substitute it with some diluted plain yogurt.

Do you know the secret to making thick and fluffy pancakes?

Spirulina Energy Balls

SPIRULINABALLS1

I’ve come to the conclusion, that at the ripe age of 26, I am a grown up. This revelation came to me when I was stood in my local whole foods store, amongst the quinoa and coconut oil. There I was, amongst this amazing array of colourful veg, beautiful nuts, and the best selection of whole-grains, and I was excited, so excited. The same kind of excitement that I used to get when I bought a new dress from Topshop, or a new pair of shoes (OK the latter still excites me). But now, going to the supermarket to stock …read more

Banana and Blueberry Granola Bars

The boat is currently moored in a nice secluded woody area, surrounded by humungous trees and fields of horses. It also appears to be a bit of a black hole, connection wise. No internet, no phone signal. Just me and my mind. It’s been both good and bad. I don’t like feeling disconnected. But I also know that this current world is full of too much information. My brain feels like a matrix of words and news sometimes, forever buzzing and processing all the information we have access to. Social media has made switching off and being present much harder. …read more
