A delicious Apple Slab Pie with a pecan studded crumb topping – easier to make then a traditional apple pie and feeds a crowd.
Potato and Cheese Perogies have got to be one of my favourite comfort foods and homemade is THE best! But, they’re so much work. You spend all afternoon making them only to have half of them eaten at dinnertime. I used to get together with my sister-in-law and we’d make big batches of cottage cheese(…)
I couldn’t really share an awesome cracker recipe with you without also sharing a dip to go with it. As good as they are on their own if you want to serve them to company you’ve gotta have some yummy toppings. I personally love bean dips, my hubby on the other hand is not such(…)
This cake comes together in one bowl with simple ingredients and results in a comforting moist yet fluffy spiced cake.
Although I never spent much time in the kitchen growing up my mom’s simple, hearty and homemade cooking had a big impact on me and inspires a lot of the way I cook today. She’s an awesome cook and has produced some of my all time favourite recipes. Today I’m sharing her Simplified Stuffing. If(…)
I’m not a simple person by nature. The simple life has always appealed to me but I tend to over complicate things and end up going overboard. That ‘s partly why this blog is so important to me. It helps to remind me to keep things simple and enjoy life. I try to think of(…)
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(…)
I am not one to usually make juice from scratch. For some reason in my mind it always seemed like a lot of work and I didn’t understand the reasoning behind it, when it is so readily available to purchase. But, after making homemade Cranberry Juice I have been converted. It is pure. It is(…)
You know those people that you just know well enough that every time you run into them you have to strike up an awkward conversation? So, you try desperately to pretend that you have not noticed them because you are not in the mood for small talk? I think we all know at least one(…)
I am pretty sure that I have not yet had the chance to meet all of my lovely readers, and you know what? I would love to meet you! So why not introduce yourself? And, for those of you that I have had the honour to “meet” already, I would love to know more about(…)
There is one sound that fills my heart with immediate joy the moment I hear it. That is, the pitter patter of my sons little feet. It is the warning bell that cuteness is on it’s way and I had better brace myself to not let it get the better of me. There is something(…)
I have a confession to make. I am not so great with potatoes. Don’t get me wrong, I love potatoes. In fact, they are one of my favourite vegetables. But, my husband does not appreciate their texture or lack of flavour so making potatoes is a little foreign to me. When I saw some Roasted(…)
