I”m not sure how many marmalade fans there are out there. I know it”s a pretty acquired taste. I only seem to like it in certain instances and I feel like it has to be done just right to be delicious. For me, it”s all about getting over that first bite. I always shudder a(…)
I don’t know why it took me so long to make applesauce. Well, maybe I do – because somehow in my mind it seemed like a laborious difficult process. But it really shouldn’t have taken me so long because it couldn’t be easier. I was originally going to can some but once I tried out(…)
Easy to make and tasty too. These Bread and Butter Pickles are so fool proof anyone can make them.
No more running to the store to pick up a bottle of Catalina Dressing. Just peak in your cupboards and you can whip some up in no time flat.
A spring salad of strawberries and greens topped with sugared almonds and drizzled with strawberry poppy seed dressing. A double dose of strawberry for your dinner table.
The first recipe for homemade Shake’n Bake that actually lived up to my expectations. It’s flavourful, crunchy and fast making it a great item to have stored in cupboard.
Yesterday I stood staring at the abundance of gorgeous purple plums sitting on my counter. I knew I needed to use them up soon but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make with them. I love plum jelly but since I don’t have any canning equipment that wasn’t really a possibility. That’s why this(…)
Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner and although I don’t make a huge feast for just the three of us, I do have fun making a few things here and there to remind me of home. A turkey dinner is just not complete without some Cranberry Jelly (or sauce, depending on your preference). I(…)
Freezer Jam is the only kind of jam I”ve made by myself, partly because it”s my husbands favourite and partly because of it”s ease of preparation. Simple Bites has been having a very helpful Canning 101 series all week and I”m rounding it up with a short talk about Freezer Jam along with the recipe(…)
Nothing beats a good homemade jam. The only reason I don”t make it very often is because it”s a fairly lengthy ordeal. Waiting until you get a huge amount of fruit and then spending the day slicing, canning and making jam. The results are well worth the effort but sometimes you just don”t have the(…)
I made this salad for my company over the weekend. I had plans to make a couple different salads but we all liked this one so much that we couldn’t seem to stay away from it. Sorry Mr. Caesar, you have been trumped. This is my favourite homemade vinaigrette so far. Most are too oily(…)
It is becoming nearly impossible to get a good photo these days. The weather is so dreary and rainy that I have to turn on the lights as soon as I get up in the morning and they do not go off until I go to bed. Our house isn’t very well lit either so(…)
