This year the mint in my herb garden grew like crazy, it was a very hot summer and we had bought a new hammock. So I thought: „Why not combine all three?“ In the end I did research how to make a decent Mojito and was delighted to find out, that it is not that hard to make. So we enjoyed quite a few Mojitos in and out of the hammock this summer. If you want to enjoy one for yourself, here is the recipe we use. Have fun!
I was looking for a light dessert for my son's 21st Birthday, BBQ party (Summer, 2020), when I came across a recipe for Strawberry Mojito Sorbet.
For fun, I decided to serve the sorbet as Popsicles. The recipe is easy to make, light and refreshing, especially after all the snacks and BBQ food. Plus, they were a hit!
Nothing screams like summer as much as watermelons do! You add feta and olive oil and you think you are in Greece. Mint gives the freshness and lemon/lime juice twist. Let's celebrate sunshine and sunny days and let's make this deliciousness over and over again!
Shirazi salad (Persian: salad shirazi) is a popular traditional Iranian salad that originated from and is named after Shiraz in Southern Iran.
Its primary ingredients are cucumber, tomato, onion, olive oil, herbal spices and verjuice, although lime juice is sometimes used in its preparation but verjuice is the right ingredient. In Iran, it is eaten in the summer as a side dish on its own, and year-round as a side dish alongside meat-based foods such as kebab, and as a side dish before and after meals .
You’ll love how simple it is, yet so bright and packed with flavor!

Done for the Food Geometry Challenge. It's impossible not to think of citrus fruits for this challenge. Make a classic lemonade and add a colorful tropical fruit for flavor, or as a fun garnish. Don't forget to add some mint!
When I was still living in Beirut, I regularly had lunch with my grandmother in her neighbourhood Thai restaurant. We never failed to order the pomelo salad for starters, a great favourite. Eventually the restaurant relocated and, for some reason, dropped the salad from their menu. My grandmother was still thinking longingly of it several years on, so I recreated it as far as I could remember, using ingredients easy to find locally. It was a hit!
Any that is left over will keep a few days while getting even tastier as it marinates further. Make sure to return to room temperature before eating, to fully enjoy the flavours.
