Have you ever looked in your fridge wondering how to use up those obscure containers of dips, sauces and spreads? Around here, it happens a lot. And I’m often the one being asked, “why is it that we have three opened jars of mustard?” (in case you wanted to know there’s yellow, dijon, and grainy. Like its such a big deal anyway… This lady likes her mustard!)
These tidy little delicious desserts taste just like peach cobbler. Without all the mess they can easily be shared, and sent home with your loved ones, or sent to work with your husband.
What beautiful weather we’re having here in Niagara. I’m sure there’s a part in everyone that itches to get outside and have a go at whatever their favourite activity is. For myself, it would be growing vegetables. As soon as the weather changes in the spring, like it has this week, you will see farmers working their soil and sowing early crops like busy little ants.
we ate this for breakfast today. tastes like seconds enjoy!
baked pumpkin steel cut oatmeal recipe.
i used to think i really enjoyed eating pickles, the cucumber ones. but when i open a jar and take a bite, they are… yuck. although, at my work we have long quatered pickles that are a bit spicy, garlicky and quite crunchy. and tolerable.
Ahhh, yes… the sound of my husband grinding coffee for a pot – even before i’m out of bed. the beckoning scent of freshly roasted beans brewing, pulls me out of my sleepiness no matter how many times i was up in the night. often times when getting ready for the night i tidy up the kitchen and glance at the coffee maker, looking forward to tomorrow morning.
that’s how good freshly roasted coffee is. but how do you roast coffee?

the turducken of cheese balls
How were your Christmas holidays? Jeremy and I spent some wonderful time together, with Win and my mom. It’s been a bittersweet couple of weeks as my maternity leave ends, I am getting ready to go back to work in January. Weekends to start. I’ll be easing myself into the kitchen world again. It’s a very different type of involvement being an at home mom, cooking meals for two point five people. Suddenly preparing meals for eighty people, three times per day. Here’s hoping I don’t get mixed up and peel fifty pounds of potatoes for home. wups!
While i’m on the topic of preparing too much, for our Christmas Eve family dinner I made this cheese ball. It was a recipe I found on www.chow.com. I’m always drawn to recipes that are borderline excessive. This massive turducken of cheese runs twelve layers deep.
