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!

Green and Lemony Couscous Salad

I used couscous instead of bulgar wheat in this tabbouleh-like salad.  It's lighter and takes no time at all to cook.

1/4 cup couscous
1/4 cup boiling water

1 cup diced English cucumber, unpeeled of course
1/4 cup chopped spinach leaves
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

2 tbsps lemon juice
2 tbsps olive oil
1/4 tsp lemon zest
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Add boiling water to couscous, let sit 5-10 minutes, then fluff it up. That's easy!
Prepare the vegetables and mix them in with the couscous. There's a lot of green stuff going on here.
Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss with the salad, chill and serve.
