Waffles

Waffles

Believe it or not, this recipe does not contain quinoa!

I have been making waffles for years.  Although they take a bit more time and prep than making pancakes, I can’t resist the crisp exterior and delicious, fluffy interior of a waffle.  Since they take a bit more work to prepare, I find that we only make them a few times a year, but once I have my mind set on waffles, there is no stopping me!

Doughnut Pudding

Bread Pudding made with Doughnuts

This is a title that grabs you and makes you want to read more 😉

We have been making numerous trips to Havelock and Campbellford this summer to deal with Dad’s Estate.  Not exactly how we had planned to spend our summer, but it has allowed us to see Cherie, Dwayne and Sam more than we normally do over the summer.  So that is a definite plus!

Bacon Wrapped Roast Turkey with Sausage-Apple Stuffing

Bacon Wrapped Roast Turkey with Sausage-Apple Stuffing

I hope that everyone had a fun filled Easter weekend.  When we were growing up, every big holiday get together consisted of a large turkey dinner.  I am sure that it is no surprise that the turkey recipe that I am sharing with you contains bacon as a key ingredient! 🙂

Now, we didn’t always have a bacon wrapped turkey, but once I was introduced to the deliciousness of bacon and turkey, I was hooked and I never looked back.  I have shared this recipe with everyone who asks me about the best way to cook a turkey.  What I love about it is that you never have to baste your turkey, as the bacon provides the ongoing moisture that is necessary for a perfect turkey dinner.

Date Muffins

Date Muffins - fresh from the oven

Well, here is another post dedicated to the art of baking. I am very aware that my last bunch of posts have been about baking, but with Christmas around the corner (only 22 more sleeps!) baking seems to be what is in my heart and mind to do.

When the desire to bake strikes you, there is no sense in fighting it, you might as well give in and start pulling out flour and sugar from your pantry.

Coconut Flour Pancakes with Berry Reduction

To counter the amount of baked goods I have been posting, I thought it would be a good time to share with you a breakfast recipe using coconut flour.

This comes courtesy of the Make it Paleo cookbook (one of the two that I have not packed away). Do not be deceived by the amount of coconut flour in this recipe. Even though it only calls for a quarter cup of flour, these pancakes are dense. Super dense. It made six pancakes (three each), and I was pretty full after the second one. Don’t worry; I managed to eat the third 😉

Turkey Burger with Grilled Pineapple

I know that fall is here, but I couldn’t resist one more, summer–time recipe to share with you before I go completely into fall mode with comfort food consisting of squash and soup recipes.

We have created burgers on here before, but this time we thought we would change it up a bit and share with you our turkey burger recipe. The great thing about burgers is you can really just throw a bunch of spices in a bowl with some ground meat and you instantly have the makings of a pretty good burger.

Lemon Coconut Loaf

Anyone who knows me, knows that I absolutely love lemon!  I mentioned my obsession with this fruit when I shared with you my first attempt at Lemon Meringue Pie.  Now I am back with another lemon inspired recipe – Lemon Coconut Loaf.

I had seen many recipes for lemon loafs, and I wanted to give one a try.  What I like about a loaf or a quick bread, is that you don’t have to play around with yeast or kneeding.  You just add all your ingredients together, put them in a loaf pan and pop it in the oven.  Done and done! 😉
