It's June so fire up that BBQ and get busy. With this recipe you'll enjoy the flavors of tropical fruit and citrus along with some heat on your chicken. I strongly suspect that the seasoned rice wine vinegar could be replaced with white wine vinegar. Time does not include marinading time.
I found this fabulous recipe on KAF: "While at first thought, these two flavors (sour? minty?) don’t seem complementary, they actually occupy enough common ground to make a good pair. Both are refreshing, clean flavors; not at all subtle, they wake up your taste buds.
Heck, they’re both bright green; that should count for something!
Lime and mint come together nicely in these tender scones. Since the recipe as written provides the barest hint of mint, feel free to ramp it up by brushing the scones with a bit of mint syrup after baking."
This is very refreshing during the summer months. Serve it as a first course for breakfast, but it is especially nice in the afternoon of a warm summer's day. This is from Carol at a B&B in Rock Creek B.C. where we once stayed.
This is another result of my tea experimentation's. With this one I really think that less is more and stopping while I was ahead. It's very light tasting with a bit of flower and an essence of cinnamon. If you have not used rose water before start with a 1/2 teaspoon and add more if you like.
This delicious rice pilaf can stand alone as a side dish, but it's great served as a bed for savory Recipe#414809.

This is a perfect spring soup that takes advantage of the asparagus crop. It's on the healthy side which is a plus. Dairy free, quick and easy, a delicious vegetarian soup that will serve as a light meal or a soup course when you have guests. Be careful not to overcook the veggies, or that fresh appealing bright green color becomes a sludgy pea soup green. If asparagus is out of season or too pricey try using broccoli in it's place. This can be served hot or chilled.
I met this muffin on the Christine Cushing Live show and had to try it. For my money this is the ultimate banana muffin when it comes to the health aspect and just plain good taste. This can be made with some chopped nuts in place of the blueberries (or a small amount in addition to the berries). The nuts will add fat but nuts are heart healthy fat, you know the good kind.
From Diabetic Living, this is great. They say: "Instead of using loads of calorie-laden regular sour cream, we lightened these enchiladas with a creamy filling that includes only a wisp of light sour cream." Works for me.
