I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Virgin Mojito for Two

For Mojito Monday or mojito anyday! So refreshing!
20 large mint leaves
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup simple syrup (see below)
1 - 355 ml can ginger ale
Lots of ice cubes
(Add 2 oz rum each if you don't want the virgin version)
First off, make a little batch of simple syrup. Bring 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil just to dissolve the sugar, then cool. Refrigerate the remaining simple syrup for more mojitos!
Next, place the mint leaves, simple syrup and lime juice in a mortar and stir and rub with a pestle 4 or 5 times. You don't want to pulverize the leaves just crush a bit  to release the mint essence.
Distribute evenly into two tall glasses with ice cubes...
...and top with ginger ale. Ahhhhh!
Ginger ale can be substituted with lime sparkling water, club or tonic water.

This one was with lime sparkling water and it was awesome!!
