A simple recipe that comes from a co-worker, Annie. Wrapped in cellophane, it makes a great gift bags or serve in a bowl for a party mix for the next gathering. Simple, addictive and oh so wonderful! NOTE: Mix and match your favourite dried fruits and nuts to create your personalized version of this recipe.
This is a recipe that is a hit at many of the dog rescue fundraisers. It always does my heart good to see guardians buying the organic biscuits for their pets and to see these sell out before the other dog biscuits always makes me smile! For my little finicky mutts, they seem to really enjoy them and it gives me great comfort in this time of massive recalls that I can feed my pets the best possible treat I can. This recipe is also a great way to use up left over sweet potato or squash.
This is a recipe that I grew up with and the neighbourhood kids also loved. It was the meal that we would bribe some of the teen boys to assist in a few chores and they always were happy to help if they knew they were going to enjoy a hearty helping of Mom's pasta!
A simple but delicious recipe that takes no time to make and can be quite diverse. Often before combining dry and wet ingredients, I separate the two in half by weight and then add the flavour (1/2 of what is listed in recipe) to create two different types of scones.
The original recipe came from Company's Coming cookbook but was modified to suite personal preference.
About a year ago a friend taught me to make bread and I have been testing and playing with bread recipes ever since. Even though I have found many that I like, I have always come back to this one for a standard bread to go with stews and to make sandwiches. This recipe can be easily be doubled or halved. This can also be turned into dinner buns, submarine buns or round loaves rather than the traditional loaves.
Total time is 3 hours with bread rising times
This is a recipe that has always been a favourite of my father's. It is one of those simple recipes that isn't too sweet and goes amazing with tea or coffee. It is also a great seller at the fundraisers and one of those cookies that I too like to have around for company.
This is another recipe from my friend Chantel. I've had this dish at her place and thoroughly enjoyed it. She uses hot smoked salmon rather than the cold smoked and she sometimes substitutes Lobster or crab for the smoked salmon.
My friend Chantel makes one of the best biscottie I have tried. I have bought biscotti at the grocery stores and some of the coffee shops and it doesn't compare. this is a simple recipe that is easy to make and tastes second to none! Thanks Chantel.... Also as optionals you can add 1 tsp vanilla, an extra 1/2 cup cranberries, rind of one orange and/or decrease sugar by 1/4 cup
This is a recipe my mother use to make many years ago. I would normally say that it was one of my favourites but all of Mom's pickles were amazing! Posting it here now that I have the recipe so that it is at easy reference when I want to make another batch!
Preparation time does not include allowing the vegetables & salt time to sit.
This is a recipe I tried some time ago. A friend gave it to me after I insisted on having the recipe after she served me this soup. Not sure where she got it from but it is one that I have and plan to use frequently!
Here is a recipe that Mom has made for years. It was one of the favourites in the home-cook pantry and one that rarely lasted very long. Mom always used regular cucumbers from the garden, NOT the typical pickling cucumbers
Now that Mom has difficulties standing for long periods of time, I have received her recipes for all the great stuff that we enjoyed growing up! This was always one of my favourites and had this as a side with any meat and potato meal that we were served.
This is a recipe that Mom would make and we all loved to smell cooking in the kitchen. It was one of those items made during harvest time and would seldom make it through the winter. It was amazing with eggs and great on burgers or hotdogs.
Here is a fast and simple recipe for Salsa Verde. You can modify it to intensify or reduce the cilantro flavour... I personally enjoy a strong cilantro flavour in this dish. I'm fortunate to have an organic market here in Aylmer, Quebec where I can find all the ingredients needed and just a hint, but using fresh organic produce just makes this salsa burst with flavour!
This is a recipe I frequently get requests for and it is one of my favourite recipes to bring along to a function not only because it is a crowd pleaser but also because it is so darn simple.... might as well make a double batch if you want to have some for yourself!
