This Rachel Ray version of the recipe has been my go-to for years. My daughter likes helping me make it too. Mmmm, the touch of nutmeg gives it a nice zing. I make a big batch, and freeze at least half of it, depending how many are home for dinner that night.
My friend Sunshine turned me on to these delicious cinnamon rolls, with the delightful taste of nutty browned butter ... mmmm!! I make it with Smitten Kitchen's salted caramel sauce, though you can use any caramel sauce you have around SK's is just to die for!
A fab Christmas cookie, and yes it's another recipe from my friend Eliz. We both like almond flavouring, so there is a little more almond extract in this recipe than originally called for. I like the touch of maraschino cherry juice in the icing for both the flavour and pop of pink it gives.
This recipe is from my good friend and baking queen extra-ordinaire, Eliz. Not as intense a mince flavour as mincemeat tarts, my man says they are excellent dunked in coffee. My kids suggest a filling other than mince, such as butter/brown sugar/raisins, or butter/brown sugar/cinnamon. Though my kids don't like mince, lol!

This is the most aromatic and fragrant of all Indian spice blends. Used throughout North India in all types of dishes — from appetizers and soups to yogurt salad and main courses — this blend is indispensable to Moghul and North Indian cooking. It is widely available, but the homemade version is more fragrant and, of course, fresher.
I got this recipe from my dad 20 years ago, via my brother after a visit to California. My dad is gone now and this recipe makes me think of him and miss him, but it also makes me happy to be able to share it with my family. Slow-roasted, it’s fall-off-the-bone good, and the skin so yummy and crispy! My kids and I fight over it!
