Watermelon Salad

I never would have guessed that watermelon and red onion go together so well.  It's amazing how much the watermelon takes on the onion's flavor.  All around, this is a great summer-time dish.

Cannoli Cake

This is a moist cake that combines a lot of great flavor.  If you have trouble finding mascarpone cheese at your local grocery, you can substitute neufchatel.  It doesn't taste quite the same, but it'll still be good.

Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo bars are one of Canada's contributions to baking.  There's some controversy about the origin and the original recipe.  Nonetheless, you can try this tasty version.  I flavored it with spearmint, but you could use any flavor you like or have plain filling.

Two-Layer Gianduja

Gianduja is a nut & chocolate confection that comes from Italy.  My pronunciation is terrible, so I couldn't tell you the right way to say it.  But it's definitely a tasty treat that everyone will enjoy.
