We’ll Put the Kettle On

This week we went to an amazing show that shows the epitome of Newfoundland hospitality: Come From Away.  For those who don’t know the show, it’s about the time when many planes were diverted to the Gander airport on Sept. 11, 2001, because of the attack on the towers in New York City.  Thirty eight…

Turkey pizza with Cranberry BBQ sauce

It’s the new year and you might have a few leftovers from your feastings.  I’ve finally finished off the last of the Christmas turkey (except for the carcass) and have scoured the tubes and wires of the interweb for recipes.  I found this one for turkey pizza and it is delish, I must say.  Over…

Happy New Year

Welcome to a new year and a new look to the blog.  I wanted to change things up a bit, mostly for me because I’m the one looking at this thingy the most.  Let me know how you like the new look. A new year means new ideas and new recipes.  I hope to bring…

White Chocolate Cranberry Krispie Treats

If you know me then you know I love me a Rice Krispie treat.  I’ve made so many over the years I can’t keep count.  I love experimenting with different flavours.  In the past I’ve made Cinnamon Bun Rice Krispies, as well as throwing in things like chocolate chips and marshmallows. I’ve hit the jackpot…

Christmas Cookie Countdown – Oatmeal Fruit Cookies

This week’s cookie is one that I personally like.  While it can technically be made any time of the year (as are most cookies), I personally like cinnamon flavour around this time.  It makes you feel warm and brings forth visions of sitting by the fire while sharing these cookies with your loved ones. Oatmeal…

Christmas Cookie Countdown – Christmas Snowballs

The second week of the cookie countdown has begun and I can’t wait to share with you this wonderful recipe.   One little confession though, it’s not really a cookie per se.  For holiday baking I like to be a bit general in saying cookie, so it encompasses cookies, bars, rolled cookies, balls, and the like. …

Christmas Cookie Countdown – Sour Cream Raisin Cookies

Well, the Christmas music is playing, I’ve got a nice hot cup of tea by my side so I’m ready to start giving you some of my favourite holiday cookies.  I’m starting off with a drop cookie.  Drop cookies are one of the easiest cookie to make.  Cookies like my molasses drop cookie or chocolate…

Christmas Cookie Countdown and Contest

It’s the first week of November and already the shops are filled with holiday decorations and I’m starting to hear the holiday music being played over the airwaves.  And I LOVE it!  Don’t get me wrong, I know there are many out there who think the holiday starts way too early and one part of…

Blackberry Coconut Bars

Things have been very busy this time of year and I apologize for neglecting all my blog friends.  I want to make it up to you by giving you this quick and easy bar recipe that can be made in less than an hour. One thing that I’ve relied on for years is cake mix. …

Amazingly Easy Apple Butter

It’s that time of year again when there’s a crispness in the air and the leaves are beginning to change.  One of the great things about this time of year is that one of my favourites come on sale: apples.  You can get so many different varieties now and there are always new ones to…
