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!

Garden Basil Beans

Still picking beans from your garden? Here's a quick and zesty side dish that combines yellow (or wax beans), green beans, garlic, basil and a hint of orange.

1/2 lb yellow and green beans
2 tbsps olive oil
2 tsps minced garlic
2 tbsps fresh sliced basil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp orange zest (optional)

First, boil a pot of water then add the beans. Cook 3-4 minutes until tender crisp and using a slotted spoon remove to a cold water bath.
Add olive oil to a skillet and heat to medium. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain beans and add to the skillet. Toss to coat and very lightly brown.
Remove from heat and add the salt, pepper, basil and orange zest.
Serves 2
