We are still enjoying summer poolside and I love to have my friends over several times a month to sip cocktails and have appetizers.

I’ve been trying to serve more Meatless Meals lately…especially since reading an article about preventing Alzheimers. The article listed five main changes to make to your life that could possibly help…the first was exercise (done), the second was coffee, 70% chocolate, red wine (done, done and done), the third was sleep (working on it), the fourth was learning something new (again, working on it) and the last change to make was a more vegetable-based diet.

Both flour and corn were served – the corn was a gluten-free option for one of my guests who doesn’t eat flour. Serve these with your favorite toppings…I paired these Shrimp Quesadillas with lime cocktails along with a yummy Black Bean Salsa. Continue reading
My son Gabe first tried the Harry Potter Butterbeer in Universal Studios a few years ago and has been itching to taste it again…after buying a bottled version of it at It’s Sugar in Ocean City, NJ this past weekend, he was disappointed by the lack of quality and flavor…when he returned home he asked me to help him recreate one that tasted more like the original at Universal…here’s his version that turned out just the way he liked it!
