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!

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! 😉

Pizza Bianca

This is actually the very first recipe that I ever made from America’s Test Kitchen (ATK). I had purchased one of their magazines during a grocery store outing, and while I was flipping through the pages, a photo of a gorgeous pizza crust caught my attention.

Even though the directions for this recipe are lengthy, it is actually very easy to make. There is just something magical about making bread. You throw some pretty basic ingredients together, and they just grow into something beautiful and delicious.

Basic Pizza Dough

I think that Friday night is the perfect pizza night!  (well, actually I could likely eat pizza every day of the week, but Friday’s just seem a bit more right for pizza 🙂 )

If you have the time making your own pizza dough is pretty easy.  Plus there are two obvious benefits:

  • You know all the ingredients that are going into your pizza
  • It is so much cheaper than having one delivered

Pretzel Burger Buns

It started out as any other Sunday.  Jamie and I were planning out our meals for the week, and we were getting ready to spend another fabulous day in the kitchen.  Then Jamie made a suggestion to make some home-made hamburgers for dinner.  This was a great idea, since we haven’t had home-made burgers since Super Bowl Sunday when Jamie whipped up a batch of sliders.

Country Tea Biscuits

One of the benefits of growing up in the country is that we never learned of the horrors of white flour and carbohydrates until much later in life 🙂

Farmhouse White Bread

One of my fondest food memories of my Grandma is her Homemade White Bread!  My Grandma used to make dozens of loaves at a time and distribute them among the family.  When I would step off the school bus I could smell the bread from the driveway!  Yummy!  Warm, homemade white bread topped with butter and brown sugar…delicious.  It is also fabulous toasted with butter.
