    I'm not sure that "of late" qualifies as an idiom, but the definition you give is correct enough. How would you use it? Here are a couple of examples.

    I've been collecting stamps of late.

    He's been acting strangely of late.

    The weather has improved of late.

    It's a substitute for recently as you've discovered.
    Moggy.
    By the way; there's only one "u" in puzzled!
