This time of year is just whimsical.

The fresh veggies everywhere, the different recipes to experiment with, and the good ol' sunshine!

Since discovering my new found love for cooking, I am always wanting to provide a tasty treat for friends and family.

Sunday we had a special day planned with two of our "like family" friends.

We had a long boat day planned so I took the opportunity to make the Mango-Pineapple Salsa recipe I have been so anxious to try.

It was the perfect treat for a long day on the boat.

The chill from being in the cooler was so divine, I couldn't have thought of a better treat at the time.

We were beginning to feel sun-kissed when I reached into the cooler to enjoy the little snack.

I attempted at making pita chips.

They were too chewy, but I know what mistake I made so next time they should turn out perfect.

I sort of feel sorry for all of our guests who become my guinea pigs when trying new recipes. They do not always end up perfect, but this salsa definitely hit the spot and I am definitely making this again.


The salsa recipe is linked to Charleston Outdoors Magazine

The pita chips recipe is from my book, The Beach House Cookboook

A great gift from my sister a few Christmas's back.

Cheers to the perfect Alfresco treat!
