3rd Blogiversary & a Plum Basil Cocktail!

Guess what! Today is my third blogiversary! Yep, on this day three years ago I hit publish on my very first post, and what a ride it has been.

Each year on my blogiversary I like to share a recipe featuring plums and this year I’m right in celebration mode with a plum basil cocktail!

Recipe: Spinach & Cashew Dip

It’s dip time again! I originally made this delicious spinach & cashew dip to take on a picnic, although I’ve since made it a few more times to snack on at work or toss through some pasta as a pesto and every time it has been a real winner.

Recipe: Artichoke & Cannellini Bean Dip

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared a dip recipe with you lovely folk, but I’m back with an absolute winner today. I spent the shortest day of the year at a Winter Solstice event with some friends (complete with an amazing bonfire!) and we took along a little picnic of snacky foods, and this artichoke & cannellini bean dip was one of my contributions. It’s incredibly simple to make but carries quite the flavour punch, so it’s a definite winner in my books!

Recipe: Ricotta Stuffed Mini Capsicums

As you may have seen in my January Balcony Garden update I now have a mini capsicum plant which was getting rather laden with gorgeous orange peppers. There was really only one thing to do with them when they ripened – stuff them with cheese! I was even able to flavour them with herbs from my balcony and lemon from my parents, so it really is a homegrown affair! So here they are, my ricotta stuffed mini capsicums!
