Seasonal Food and Flora


Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Tagliatelle with Artichokes and Prosciutto

There is something decadent about the humble artichoke. Combined with thin slices of salty prosciutto, tossed in a nest of hot tagliatelle with a hint of heavy cream, it makes a feast for a weeknight dinner.  I adapted this recipe from Cook’s... read more

Better-Than-Crack Brownie Parfaits

Since the kids were babies, our family birthday cake of choice has  been Devil’s Food cake with French Vanilla Icing and Smarties. Yes, cake mix from a box, with icing in a plastic container, pre-made. Every year I would send enough cupcakes for the... read more

Date & Nut Loaf

After a long walk with the dogs, we like nothing better than to curl up with a book, a cup of tea and a fire in the fireplace.

Entertablement Abroad – Madrid

Full confession:  I’m not very keen on Madrid. Maybe it was the weather (cold, blustery and rainy), maybe it was the recovery from jet lag (it was our first stop), and maybe it was simply not what I expected (lots of modern buildings, graffiti... read more

Entertablement Abroad – Sandwich, Cape Cod, MA

What better way to spend a sunny Sunday than a drive through the countryside in Cape Cod? We meandered along Highway 6A towards Sandwich, stopping to take photos of whatever caught our eye. The roadside farmers’ stands are rife with pumpkins and... read more

Entertablement Abroad – It’s Pumpkin Time!

It’s been an extraordinarily beautiful fall, and we’ve been taking advantage of the weather with long walks and drives in the country. With the camera in hand, I find I see the world differently and capture just ordinary moments. Pumpkins abound! Our daily... read more

Entertablement Abroad – Chatsworth

Chatsworth was the highlight of our trip to Derbyshire. Seat of the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire, this property has made the transition from fusty country estate to an historical entity pulsating with energy and vitality. It is no wonder it’s been selected... read more
