In the novel “One Day”, Dexter likes his martinis very dry with a twist of lemon. I scoured the internet and library books to find tips on making the best dry martini (see bottom of post).

Scottish Brose Pudding Recipe

| by Lisa | sweets

Brose is a Scots word for an uncooked form of porridge in which oatmeal (and/or other meals) is mixed with boiling water and allowed to stand for a short time. The recipe for Athole Brose, the cocktail form of brose, in “Traditional Scottish Recipes” by George L Thomson is flavored with whiskey and honey. To make this brose pudding, I pureed steel cut oats and mixed it with whipped cream, whiskey and honey. The texture is similar to tapioca, but the flavor is undeniably Scottish.

One of my favorite ways to get a party started is with a fruity sangria.  You can use a variety of fruits to match the season.   I walk the grocery store aisles and pick up fruit that I think would look good together.
