If you made elderflower cordial this season, then this is what you need to make with it. (And if you didn’t make elderflower cordial, bookmark the recipe for next year and buy store-bought in the meantime). But this isn’t just about the elderflower. This Prosecco cocktail recipe has a story, and it’s all in the name: “The Bump Start”.

It started in the Lake District. Two of my dear friends and I were on a camping trip to celebrate the summer solstice. Of course, there are some GREAT pubs in the Lake District worth getting distracted by, including The Manor Arms in wee Broughton, in the corner of their tiny square. About two pints (for my friends - as the “responsible” driver I was on the Diet Coke) and a bundle of cash later, I remembered the car. Sure enough the engine was totally dead. While somewhat nervously scoping out the car park (“parking lot” for you Yankees), my eyes settled on a Land Rover of some variety, and I immediately thought, “whoever owns that car can help me”.

Cilantro-and-Lime Marinated Chicken Fajita Kebabs Recipe. Chicken isn't generally the go-to meat for fajitas (flavorful skirt steak is the deserving star usually), but this flavor-packed marinade made with cilantro, tart lime juice, brown sugar, cumin, and crushed red pepper makes it a worthy stand-in. Here, we thread the chicken pieces onto skewers and cook them kebab-style. It's everything there is to love about chicken fajitas on one stick, minus the tortilla, of course.

Why this recipe works: Chicken thighs stay juicier and have more flavor on kebabs compared to chicken breasts.The cilantro and lime-heavy marinade gives the chicken a bright and fresh character.Red and green bell peppers and white onion soften well over direct heat and round out the fajita flavor. Note: If chicken thighs do not cube well, cut the meat into strips larger than 1 1/2 inches and fold it over when threading onto the skewers to make a cube-like shape.

I know I couldn’t help but grab a spoon when confronted with these parfaits. It’s one of those pesky “inconveniences” of my job, that one where I cook delicious food for a living – and, incidentally, my wonderful job is a big part of the reason why I’m running on empty right now. Not only am I exhausted from keeping up with all the festive foods from recent holidays (if you’re suddenly wondering “what holidays?”

So, no, I didn’t hesitate at all before picking up a spoon. I’ve earned this. Baileys Cookies and Cream Parfaits Rate this recipe! Lemon Cheesecake Mousse. Share on Pinterest Could there be a better spring dessert?? In my opinion this one is hard to top! It’s three of my favorite things in one bright, luscious, rich, heavenly dessert!

Wondering what the heck a twice-baked potato is?

Twice-baked potatoes, much like biscotti, require two – almost back to back – baking sessions. P.S. Then you add in Greek yogurt, milk, cheese, broccoli, and spices. ↓ Mmmm! The second baking session is to warm the newly stuffed potatoes, crisp up their skins, and melt the magical cheese piled on top. P.S. So much texture! Just an idea Notes.
