Summer Recipe: Grilled Peach Melba Sundae

Good Morning!

This morning I’m sharing a crowd pleasing recipe from the cover of this month’s Canadian Living magazine.  With grilling season in full swing, why not make the absolute most use your grill with this yummy dessert?  Grilled Peach Melba Sundaes with a raspberry sauce are T.A.S.T.Y.  I recently made this recipe for some friends and it was a hit.  And it’s really easy to do.

The raspberry sauce was sweet and delicious and the best part is you can easily make it ahead. Also, if you make a little extra you could use it for other things too.  Maybe add it to a vinaigrette to make a sweet raspberry salad dressing?

Once peaches are in season, this dessert will be extra sweet and delicious.

I really loved this dessert.  As you can tell from the slightly melted ice cream in the photo, I put the peaches on while they were still warm from the grill which made it ever better! My friends were also fans….

Aside from this dessert tasting great, it’s so easy whip up.  The sauce and toasted nuts can be made in advance.  And if you are already grilling your dinner on the barbecue you can then just throw on the peaches after and BAM!  An instant light dessert, perfect for long summer evenings on the patio.  You can find the full recipe here, or in this month’s Canadian Living magazine!

Have a great day!

Delish Sesame Chicken with Fennel and Orange Salad

Good Morning!

I’m going to be frank with you, it’s rare for me to really enjoy a salad. A friend of mine often says, “you don’t make friends with salad”, and I tend to agree with that statement.  It’s even more rare for me to sing the praises of a salad recipe.  Well, this morning my friends, I’m singing a new tune.  I recently tried Canadian Living’s Sesame Chicken with Fennel and Orange Salad recipe (which is their May cover recipe) and this salad was delicious.

The recipe was really easy to follow, took no time to whip up, and the ingredients were all things I already had or could find easily at my local grocery store.

I grilled the chicken on the barbecue which gave it a little extra smokey flavour.  For the dressing, I substituted grainy Dijon mustard, with hot and sweet Russian mustard which made it extra tangy and sweet.

This salad is a winner in my books.  Crunchy, tangy and filling.  You won’t feel like you need another meal after you eat this salad.  And you can trust that if this salad skeptic is saying you should try this recipe, then it must be good.  You can find the full recipe here.   You can also see how other CL bloggers made this recipe, here.  Enjoy!
