    Not exactly a spa water, but a nice treat nonetheless! A splash of heart-healthy red wine turns this fruity water infusion into an antioxidant-rich evening cocktail.

    6 cups (1.5 L) mineral or sparkling water 
    2 cups (500 ml) dry red wine 
    1 lemon, sliced
    1 lime, sliced
    1 blood orange, sliced
    1/2 cup (125 ml) hulled and sliced strawberries

    1. Pour water and red wine into large pitcher or bowl. Stir to combine. 2. Add lemon, lime, orange and strawberries. 3. Chill in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours.

    For a nonalcoholic version, simply replace red wine with an additional 2 cups (500 ml) water.

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    These whimsical weeknight quesadillas offer a great excuse to break out the long-forgotten waffle iron. The smoky, tangy pepper sauce is the perfect sidekick for this dish, but it’s also wonderful when tossed with pasta, stuffed into sandwiches, and slathered on burgers. TIP : When assembling quesadillas, keep fillings centred 1/2 in (1.25 cm) from the edge of the tortilla so they don’t spill over. TIP : Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapenos. Adobo is a slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple to add deep smoky heat to sauces, dips, marinades, and soups. No waffle iron? Then make these quesadillas using this skillet method. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, preferably cast iron, and cook over medium heat until dark spots appear and bottom is crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over and cook until crispy and darkened on the other side. Remove tortilla from skillet and replace with another tortilla. Cook until darkened and crispy on one side, flip, and top with stuffing ingredients. Place crispy tortilla on top, press down gently, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
