These easy iced coffee popsicles are really a big reward for very little input. They are perfect for serving on a hot summer’s day when you are craving a cup of coffee but can’t stomach the thought of drinking something hot.
I have to admit, I am more of cake person than an Ice cream gobbler. Yes, I am the type that would rather find comfort in chocolate cake than ice cream. Off course not all the members of my family feel this way. My children would after all, eat it for breakfast if this mom would allow it. Luckily my own dear Mom gave me an Ice cream maker for Christmas last year. I have to admit that this was a great gift…Thanks Ma!

This spicy Moroccan chickpea salad has all the elements that make a salad fabulous. It is filled with crunchy greens, sweet butternut, juicy tomatoes, spicy chickpeas, and a zingy honey mustard salad dressing. I got the inspiration for this salad from one of our chain coffee shops, Mugg and Bean, who serves a similar salad. It is my absolute favorite item on their menu and I order this every time I visit them. This is my version of their Spicy Moroccan chickpea salad, and it is mighty good!
Summer honey mustard trout with pineapple salsa.
Trout is such a delicious freshwater fish and makes such a lovely lunch or light dinner on a hot summer day. My hubby cooked this summer honey mustard trout over the coals, and I made a pineapple salsa to complement it along with some roasted sweet potatoes for Sunday lunch today.
Recently, we had the opportunity to fish at a beautiful dam at the Horseshoe Trout and About while being on holiday in Sabie, Mpumalanga. It is a beautiful way to spend your day in nature and we were fortunate enough to catch quite a few trouts. Horse Shoe Trout and About cleans and vacuum packs all your caught fish for a small fee. Better and fresher you won’t find.
