Did you know you can make tea with pineapple peels? Now you know. A few months ago I learnt of this epic tea and since then we’ve bought more pineapples in the last three months than we’ve ever bought in a year.
Eight years ago I published my first post and the journey began. What started as a journal of my joys and woes in the kitchen has led to so many great adventures. Back then it was just my husband and I. Now we’ve grown to a family of 6. My three children and our lovely […]

The most involving part is making the marinade and assembling the wings and the teriyaki sauce. Whenever I’m making wings I usually make a huge batch since these babies tend […]
