What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
Last week, I was in the States for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. My siblings and I threw them a surprise party. I was part of the surprise =p (hubby was supposed to come too, but he got the flu – bah to the flu). I flew in Saturday, stayed with my brother and while he distracted them, snuck over to my parents’ house Sunday morning to help my youngest brother and my sister prepare for the party.
When I got there she had a large box of plum tomatoes, two canisters of mini mozzarella balls, and a package of fresh basil waiting for me by the sink. She pointed in that general direction and said, “Get to it.” I made this a few years ago for a party and it quickly became a family favourite. Here it is, my signature party appetiser: Caprese salad bites. I love it because it’s so easy, looks great on a plate, and is pretty healthy.
