With the holiday season in full swing, it is time to think about Christmas baking. I know a lot of people have already started….but the problem I have with starting early, is that Jamie and I raid the freezer of our sweet treats, and we end up having to bake twice as much!

This is my variation on the recipe that my mom always made (and still makes today). There is nothing better on a cold winter’s day to have a piping hot bowl of chili. So, you may be asking, why are you sharing this recipe now, in April. Well, as you know, we live in Ottawa, and they are calling for snow this week, so I thought that sharing my recipe for chili made perfect sense! 🙂
This is likely my favourite recipe out of the New Dieters Cookbook. My sister was actually the first person who made it. I remember it was so good I asked for seconds (and likely thirds). Then the next time I was over for a visit, I asked her to make it again. Yep, it is that good!
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!
This is the second recipe that I submitted to Turkey Farmers of Canada and Mushrooms Canada for their #GrillOn Summer promotion. You will remember that the first recipe I made for them was the Turkey Mushroom Sausage.
I knew that I wanted to make something stuffed for this promotion. I actually wanted to make a roulade, but that didn’t turn out too well. It tasted great, but it didn’t slice or photograph very well. I am not sure if my knife wasn’t sharp enough, but it ended up looking like a turkey mushroom casserole instead of a beautiful roulade 🙂
My favourite muffin to make is Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip. I have been making this muffin for years. I change it up from time to time, omitting the chocolate chips for fruit, but let’s admit it, we all want that little bit of chocolate in our muffin to make it feel like a bit of a treat 😉
After making the triple lemon cake for Laurel’s birthday, I have become intrigued with the idea of using jelly powder to flavour cakes. In fact, Kerri flavoured a cake with grape Jell-O and grape Kool-Aid. I was fortunate enough to taste the result of her experiment, and it was delicious. It was a perfect birthday cake for a child’s birthday party.
When I was approached a few weeks ago to make a dessert for a birthday celebration in the office, I knew that I wanted to play around with different flavour combinations. I have done a chocolate, vanilla and lemon cake now I wanted to play around with strawberry. You may think this is an odd choice to celebrate a milestone birthday for a male co-worker, but I can explain…
