OMG--when I saw these about a week ago, I was itching to do them....but my way.
I was in love when I first saw what these were. I never knew such a concotion existed until a reader on my recipe page on Facebook asked for a recipe.
If we don't have a recipe handy between all the admins, we go searching. I was the one who found them and learned so
This is one of the few Easters I have ever spent away from home and, food wise, one of the most exciting. Not only did I not have to cook for a crowd but I was served a dish that reminded me of...

Biscotti are an Italian favorite. This recipe is my favorite because I love almonds. They are crisp and crunchy. Biscotti are twice-baked to make them extra crisp and dry. Perfect for dunking in a cup of coffee, like I do, or with a glass of wine. How do you eat your Biscotti? 3 ¼ c. all-purpose flour 1 T. baking powder ¼ tsp. salt 1 c. sliced almonds 1 ½ c. granulated sugar 10 T. butter, melted
It's been a tad quiet around here of late, for a number of reasons. The biggest being that I just haven't had time to cook anything blogworthy, and when I've attempted to (via my new slow cooker because suddenly I've forgotten that I have other cooking appliances... like.... gosh, I dunno AN OVEN!!!) - it's all gone drastically wrong and ended up in the dog. I'm not joking.Also, I haven't much fel
(The 19th May is International Baking Day! What will you be baking? I am still in Canada, and taking care do my mum who is now home from the hospital . . . Yippee !!!. . . And so I'm not really baking much at the moment, but if I was, these would go down a real treat! I do so love Ginger bread . . . And fairy cakes. A repost from a few years ago. Enjoy!)Over here in England
I am sure y’all had your favorite chocolate cookie that your mom or grandma made growing up. Well this was my favorite fudgy cookie that my mom made. It was usually a Christmas treat, but she made so many that by the time Christmas was over, we were tired of them again till the next [...]
For Mother’s Day, I made a Key lime bundt cake instead of a pie. I did some digging and found a great Paula Deen (surprise, surprise) recipe.

Want to have fresh rolls for dinner that require very little hands on time? If you mix up the dough before you go to bed, you can bake these in the morning, and, boom, you have fresh rolls. Just reheat them before dinner to have warm rolls. Your friends and family will be impressed. I promise.These no knead rolls are based on the same concept as no knead bread. Mix flour, salt, water, and yeast w
Pop Open the Jarritos!I really don't know what to say about these fries. OK I feel like I have a few words, lol. These fries are delicious! I was at home and looking in the pantry and I saw four potatoes and figured it was fry time.Fry time is when you take some homemade, hand cut fries and you smother them with all kinds of goodness. Today I decided to go with a fiesta theme, but next time I am g
I am super excited to launch my Healthy Happy Tee Store! I have seriously been living in these tees since they arrived on my doorstep a few days ago.
These tees are both super soft and perfect for those days when you just want to throw on a pair of jeans or leggings and a soft, fun, colorful tee. No-fuss hair and not a stitch of makeup on! Those are the best days, right? And this is your ne

This dish is simple but devastatingly good. Stew some rhubarb with sugar and water until tender, then remove the rhubarb to a dish, reduce the syrup and add muscovado sugar, cream and vanilla.
Nigel describes it as a 'sweet sour sauce for rhubarb' in the kitchen diaries II, a sauce for rhubarb that has the same comforting vanilla flavours as custard without making custard, I served
When I want to seek inspiration for my meals I know exactly where to go. Online, of course. I’m not tempted yet by food magazines which would end up in a tall pile of dusty magazines I always forget to go back to when I need. I know exactly which blogs to visit, the ones that inspire feelings [...]
That's right....I did it....I made a cupcake that tastes like a twinkie! Don't tell me you don't miss twinkies....maybe even just a little bit. No? It's just me? I will admit it, I took the twinkie for granted. Once a year I would buy that little package of Hostess Twinkies with those two golden twinkie logs. I would open them up and lick all of that yummy marsh
For Mother’s Day, Fuzz gave me a bottle of Penzey’s pumpkin pie spice along with a request to make some pumpkin muffins. Because she picked such a sweet present, I took her up on her offer and made a batch of what is currently our favorite pumpkin muffin recipe. It doesn’t call for any crazy [...]
Ever play the picnic game when you were little? You know, “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing…” Of course you did. The way we played it, the thing you brought always had to begin with the first letter of your name. So let’s play. I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing…coconut custard cups! Oops, I guess I lost the game. But I do have the cutest and most convenient desserts at the picnic. Can I

TGIS! Seriously, I thought Saturday would never get here. I’m sorry I skipped the last two Slice of Life Saturday’s. Did you miss me? Nah, you probably didn’t even notice I was gone. I have a very good excuse for my Saturday absence. Wanna hear it? I was busy preparing for my very last day [...]
It's National Strawberry month and strawberry season is at it's peak. Farmers markets and stands are boasting sweet berries by the pint, half flat or full flat. If you were to drive through Ventura County, CA...you'd probably see a road side fruit and vegetable stand on every corner. As a matter of fact, the yearly Strawberry Festival is going on this weekend in Oxnard. A mere 45 minute drive (wit
One of the best parts of the annual gastronomic event of Mistura is the Gran Mercado which gathers small farmers and their products in one place so that the visitors to Mistura can see, taste and buy things that they do not typically find on the shelves of their local grocery store.

Today, and this whole weekend, will be crazy busy while the spouse and I are preparing for Potrero War. Besides all the usual stuff, we are helping cater the wedding of a couple of friends. We also need to help provide snacks for a special event.To help the spouse get going, I made breakfast. Thinking about what was available, I went with filled crepes. I cheated for the crepes. I had some Krustea
If you've been browsing Pinterest lately, you've probably come across 2-Ingredient Cookies by The Burlap Bag. It seems too good to be true. Can you really turn mashed bananas and oats into cookies? Well it's true, you really can! It's a great way to use up old overripe bananas, and perfect if you're wanting to avoid processed sugar. The best part is you can add all sorts of things to them to suit

This drive brought us back to very rugged and mountainous terrain. It went from dry, rocky desert to lush green wilderness in a matter of a couple curves. We also made an interesting stop along the way. In Cache Creek, we stayed at a place called the “Brookside Campground.” It was a nice place, though [...]

Sorry I haven't been blogging as much this month. I've been crazy busy. The month began with Gaslight Gathering, and will be ending with Potrero War. Recovery from the former, and preparation for the latter have kept me hopping, on top of finishing my culinary class. I helped run the hospitality suite and one of the teas at Gaslight, and I am in charge of running the rapier events at Potrero and,
R is for Rock CakeRock cakes are a small fruit cake, popularised in Great Britain. They have less eggs and sugar so were promoted by the Ministry of Food during the Second World War, when these commodities were scarce. They were also bulked out by oatmeal at the time, which was easier to come by. They have quite a rough, jagged appearance, hence the name Rock Cake.
Thankyou, most lovable (not) Kelly at Dysfunctionally Functional for nominating me for this kick arse award!

I'm calling her bad names in my head.The deal for getting this award is as follows:1) Display the trophy on your pos
What an impressive (and easy) dinner! They’re substantial enough to serve as their own meal, but also make a great accompaniment to hearty salads and soups. And they taste really great, too. When you serve a twice baked potato, you’ll feel like you’re having dinner at a 4-star restaurant. If you’ve never made these, don’t ...Continue reading ‘Twice Baked Potatoes’ »
Good Saturday morning to you. How did you begin your day? I started my day with breakfast. Then my boyfriend and I drove to the beach so we could walk the beach. On the way home, we stopped at a local coffee shop, Stuart Coffee Company, for some espresso drinks. I got a plain ol’ [...]
After leaving Dawson Creek, we were no longer traveling on the Alaskan Highway. Now we were traveling on Highway 97. One of the towns we passed through was Chetwynd. Chetwynd is memorable for their wood carvings that are everywhere. It is the location of an international wood carving competition…chain saw carving! Along this leg of [...]

We spent the evening in Fort Nelson, and enjoyed this beautiful rainbow just before we went to bed. The next morning, we got up and got on the road to Dawson Creek. We spent the night there at the “Mile 0 RV Park.” I wasn’t impressed with that place. The park itself looked nice enough, [...]

Happy Saturday! This morning I was able to sleep in late. I don't get to do that often and I feel so refreshed this morning. Hubby and I took our walk quite late last night -- it was 10:00 and we didn't finish up until close to 11:00 after taking Spike for his walk, too. It was cloudy and overcast when I opened my eyes this morning, but I decided to get up and make myself a
One rainy summer day, unable to build blanket forts on the climbing bars or soar through the sprinkler on a tire swing, I decided my younger sister and I should do some baking. “Baking” meant raiding Mom’s pantry and dumping everything within reach into a bowl. Raisins, nuts, vinegar, flour, icing sugar, food colouring… There was [...]The post No-Bake, Dairy-Free Berry Pudding ap

It turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks! I had the pleasure of turning 50 years old last month, and although I’m no longer a spring chicken, I discovered that I’m still capable of learning new things from my Mom. Up until just recently, I didn’t know that you could freeze […]
Tarts are the best.They're perhaps one of the greatest culinary inventions when it comes to showcasing the summer's best fruity bounty. You can top them with just about any fruit, and they're always exceptionally yummy. A recent trip to the farmer's market resulted in a big, beautiful bucket of some of the juiciest, sweetest and most delicious fresh strawberries finding their way to my
For those of you who have wanted to try my Grits and Green Chile but have no access to New Mexico's wonderful green chile, here's an alternative - Chipotle Grits with Feta Cheese. Of course the flavor is completely different because there is a huge difference between green chile and chipotle; however, like green chile and cheddar, chipotle and feta raises a simple bowl of grits to a whole new leve
I fell in love with the French Martini after trying a spin on it called a French Poodle at Yellow Dog Restaurant in Melbourne, Florida. It combines raspberry liqueur, pineapple juice and vodka into a fruity, frothy drink. The only thing that’s martini about it, is the glass. It is great anytime of year and [...]

These little bundles of happiness simply melt in your mouth. I first began making this dish when we lived in Germany. It has remained a family favorite ever since. To begin, you will need round steaks that have been sliced very thin. I find these already done in the meat department, and even labeled “for [...]
