Growing up with red hair, I was bound to find a kindred spirit in Anne Shirley from Green Gables. The series was on constant rotation during my formative years. In fact one of my first on screen crushes, as divulged in an earlier post, was on Gilbert Blythe. There are many classic scenes from the series, but one of the most memorable is when Anne inadvertently "sets Diana drunk" on current wine, which she mistook for raspberry cordial.
Now we can all make our own raspberry cordial with this recipe straight from the Anne of Green Gables Cookbook.
Currently I'm on a mission to find my "it" song for the summer. You know what I mean, right? The song that's on heavy rotation day in and day out all summer long. It makes it onto all the play-lists, from girls road trip to backyard BBQ. These are a few contenders at the top of my list, though additional suggestions are welcome. Do tell, what's your summer jam?
