Bailey’s Dipped Toasted Marshmallows

The best toasted marshmallows ever!

The best toasted marshmallows ever!

Bailey’s Dipped Toasted Marshmallows – How about a little something for the adults for a change.  A couple of weeks ago we started our annual summer long camping.  We keep our trailer at the beach for the summer – only about a 15 minute drive from our house. We’re there for most of the summer, until school starts back up. Most nights, as the tip of Mt. Baker turns from white to peachy-pink,  we settle in with a toasty little campfire to keep us warm.  A few years back we discovered Bailey’s marshmallows – all I can say is be prepared, once you’ve had toasted marshmallows with Bailey’s you’ll be ruined for all other marshmallows from that point forward.

Making this is about as simple as it gets. Toast your marshmallow over hot coals, then dip the warm marshmallow into a cup of Bailey’s.  It can be a bit gooey and drippy so be prepared to bust out the wet-wipes.

Be warned… this is highly addictive!

Out of This World 5 Minute Mediterranean Hummus

5 Minutes Mediterranean Hummus

5 Minutes Mediterranean Hummus

5 Minute Mediterranean Hummus – Growing up in rural Ontario, my opportunities to sample a variety of culinary options were incredibly limited – I was a meat and potatoes country girl all the way.  The first time I tried hummus was when I went away to University.  I think I almost died and went to heaven at my first experience with hummus – so rich, creamy and flavourful. I’m pretty sure that’s all I ate for that entire summer. Then I went to Greece about 10 years ago and had the fortune to sample the real authentic stuff. Oh how I love Mediterranean food!

Tonight I was thinking about my love for hummus when it occurred to me… why not add some of my other favourite flavours to make the ultimate tasty dish. I ran to my kitchen and whipped out whatever ingredients I could find in the fridge and got to work. When I was done and had my first taste, I knew this recipe was a keeper.
