We obviously couldn't share a gorgeous al fresco dinner without dishing on some of the recipes that made an appearance. That'd be torture, would it not?

Dragonfruit Margarita

It’s my firm belief that margaritas should be served year round. None of this summer-drink nonsense. In fact I recently had the perfect springtime drink, a Dragonfruit Margarita at a local Los Angeles Mexican restaurant and was inspired to recreate it at home. Dragonfruit is a brilliantly pink, exotic and slightly intimidating looking fruit. I was never quite sure what to do with it or how to eat it. But...

Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream

I'm not sure what I'm more excited about: this new trend in experimental ice cream flavors or the fact that we're on the cusp of ice cream weather. I can almost feel the sun on my bare arms! And though I may have turned up my nose at the idea of a strawberry and pretzel combo in the past, the sweet and savoury pairing is totally unbeatable. Once more Whipperberry leaves me drooling...

Perfect Blueberry Pancakes

Sunday mornings are fabulous in that they're the one day a week you can lounge in your pyjamas all day long and not a soul will judge you. And let's face it, the only thing that can make that better is if it's infused with perfectly fluffy, melt-in your mouth, soaked in real maple syrup, blueberry pancakes. And thanks to Sinclair and Moore and...

We're no stranger to delicious concoctions around here (there are a whole BUNCH to choose from right here), but I'm more than happy to add Valley & Co.'s recipe for...

Mint & Melon Salad

If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, it'd be fruit salad. The combinations are aplenty, they're healthy, refreshing and gosh darnit they're pretty! Up until this moment, I had never considered creating a melon ball salad, but there's a good chance that Rikki Snyder's version will be on heavy rotation from here on out. Oh, and if you missed the spring brunch that went along with this dish...

Irish Soda Bread

My favourite types of recipes are those that have been passed down from generation to generation. The tried, tested and true babies that are found on ripped, stained, water-logged recipe cards. When I get my hands on them, I hold on forever. And that's particularly true for this classic dish - a traditional Shea family recipe that's well worth a taste! Oh, and there's more St. Patty's inspiration ...

Baked Nutella French Toast

I love french toast, but sometimes it's a little time consuming to soak and fry two slices at a time. Which is why I really like baking it! You get the puffy golden bread, with all the crispy good bits, but can still hang out with your family while it's baking - it's the perfect solution! And do I really need to mention the Nutella? For more recipes, head on over to...
