We just had the best 5 days at Hockley Valley Resort for our wedding on May 23rd. Our guests are still calling and messaging us about how much of an amazing time they had this past weekend, the most beautiful venue, very kind, considerate and professional staff, absolutely DEVINE Adamo wine, coffee, and of utmost importance, impeccable food and service! We have been told (and agree!!) that our guests had the best food ever, it was a fine dining experience - fresh, unique and creative menu, such flavour and this can be experienced in every plate! We not only recommend a weekend stay to enjoy all of the gorgeous grounds, restaurants and rooms, but the overall service of your staff, attention to detail, stunning tent for our ceremony and beautifully renovated Montclair foyer, really helped make our wedding day more than perfect! Thank you for making me and my new hubby feel like royalty! It was like a destination wedding, we all had the time of our lives! We recommend breakfast in Restaurant 85, lunch at Babbo, dinner at Cabin, your events in the Montclair ballroom - we will be back! Looking forward to the Yuk Yuk event, and enjoying some Pizza in the Garden!

House-made Caramel Sauce

Share HVRShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedIn

We bet you didn’t know how easy it is to make your own caramel sauce from scratch… Try this easy recipe from our kitchen – soon you’ll be adding to caramel to just about everything!

Ingredients:
1L granulated white sugar

1L whipping cream

2 tbsp. butter, softened

Directions:
Add the sugar to a large pot on the stove, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until it becomes liquefied and turns a light caramel colour.

Whisk in the butter.

Add the cream in small amounts very slowly, whisking constantly.

Once it’s all blended, remove the pot from the stove. Strain the liquid to separate any sugar lumps.

Serve and enjoy over ice cream, pie, cupcakes, or anything else! Mmmm… Caramel can be stored in the fridge for up to a month.

2015 Superfoods: Are You on Trend?

Share HVRShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedIn
cauliflower-379873_1280

Step aside, acai berry, quinoa and ancient grains! While you’re still considered superfoods, there’s a new gang in town… Looking for the who’s who of superfoods for 2015? Check out our top 5 to see if you’re on trend:

Kalettes: If kale and brussel sprouts had a baby… then they made the kalette! Kalettes are a hybrid mix of these two power greens. With a milder taste and all the vitamins and minerals kale provides (Vitamin C, K, folate and carotenoids) this one might just be the perfect addition to your morning smoothies.

Cauliflower: Now starring in recipes from Alfredo sauce to pizza crust, cauliflower boasts tons of health benefits… It’s full of vitamins and minerals (including 77% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C), and detoxifying, with anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits. Looks like it’s time to get creative with cauliflower!

Matcha tea powder: Make room in your pantry for matcha green tea powder. With all the health properties of green tea, the powder form allows you to ingest the entire leaf, rather than just the brewed water. In fact, it contains 10 times the nutritional value and antioxidants of regular green tea. It’s matcha tea time…

Pistachios: If you’re a health nut, pistachios should be on your list – they’re high in protein, fibre and healthy monounsaturated fat. Eaten in moderation, salt-free pistachios can help raise your levels of good cholesterol, so go nuts!

Coconut flour: If you’re baking up a storm, give (gluten-free) coconut flour a try. Not only does it add a very subtle coconut flavour, but it also contains the highest amounts of protein and fibre of any other type of flour. Give your baking a boost with this healthier option!

Lemons: 10 surprising uses!

Share HVRShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedIn
Lemons On Tree

We all know that lemons smell nice in a room and add a refreshing element to your water, but according to trueactivist.com, lemons are made for more than that! Put your lemons to work in all sorts of ways – here’s a list of 10 possibilities, just to get you started:

1. Dabbing lemon juice on a cotton ball and leaving it in the fridge a few hours will remove offensive food odours and return your fridge to its fresh state.

2. A lemon a day, keeps the ants away? Yep, just squeeze lemon juice in any cracks where they are getting in and in no time, they will find someone else to bug!

3. Lemon’s anti-bacterial elements will rid you of cankers… Mix fresh lemon juice with water and swish around in your mouth a few times a day to see the effects.

4. Keep fruit from turning brown by squeezing a few drops of lemon juice on top… From guacamole to fruit salad to apple slices, you won’t taste the lemon, but you will see its amazing results.

5. Have dry, scaly elbows? Mix baking soda and lemon juice into a paste and rub onto your elbows. Follow with a moisturiser and say hello to softer skin.

6. In a pinch, a few drops of fresh lemon juice can be used to disinfect minor scrapes and cuts. Blow lightly to decrease the sting.

7. Clean up your tarnished brass or polish your chrome in a snap! Mix lemon juice and salt into a paste, leave on for 5 minutes and wash off in warm water.

8. Breathe easier by ingesting 2 tbsp. of lemon juice before each meal and before bed – it’s been known to reduce asthma symptoms!

9. Give your laundry detergent a boost by pouring 1 cup of lemon juice into the wash cycle. This will help remove stains, work on rust and mineral deposits in your machine, and, of course, leave your clothes with a lemon-fresh scent.

10. Berry-picking season is coming… An easy way to remove berry stains from your fingers is to wash them in lemon juice, wait a few minutes, and then wash with warm water and soap. A berry good solution!
