This recipe comes from the January/February 2009 publication of Saltscapes - Canada's East Coast Magazine. They held a blueberry dessert contest and this one was entered by Pat Ribley and won 3rd place.
I have another blueberry cake recipe posted which is similar; however this particular one has a topping consisting of brown sugar, ground cinnamon and butter that goes on before baking.
Presently it is baking in my oven so I can't comment as to whether or not it will win a prize in my judging category!!! As it is a recipe from a magazine, I am posting it to Zaar mainly for safekeeping so it doesn't get lost. If it passes my husband's taste test and he comments on it, I will take a photo and post it as well.
This recipe comes from a cookbook titled The First Batch of Treasured Recipes from Home by Kyla Pierik and was purchased at Apple Berry Farm Market in my hometown. The blueberry cake is warmed and then you pour the heated sauce over top. Some may find it a tad bit sweet, but in our household it was a definite winner.
A number of years ago when our town used to hold a Farmers' Market they were giving out samples of veggies stirfried in this sauce and passed out the recipe to those that requested it. Very simple to make and tastes great in basically any type of stirfry...pork, chicken, shrimp or beef.
I regularly get monthly newsletters from "Taste of Home" and yesterday this recipe was posted there. I really liked the ingredients that were in the dressing, sort of a sweet-tart combination so decided to make it and was very pleased with the results. Homemade dressings are so much more appealing than the store bought ones. I doubled the dressing recipe so there would be extra for tomorrow.
This recipe is from "Our School Cookbook", a cookbook compiled by elementary students in a school from Truro, Nova Scotia. I like recipes that are easy, flavorful and look appealing when being served. All in all, a great pork chop recipe.
A fudgy cake smothered in a hot, chocolaty sauce...what more could you ask for? Found this recipe in my "Looneyspoons" cookbook by Janet & Greta Podleski. When you are looking for a dessert that is quick & easy to prepare, this is it. It claims to have only 285 calories per serving.
About 25 years ago, when money was tight, as part of my birthday gift, my sister compiled a scribbler filled with all her favorite recipes. This recipe for banana bread was one of them. I know there are numerous recipes for banana bread on this site, but have been asked to post this one after I posted photos of this sweet bread in the Cooking Photos Forum.
This recipe was one of my Mom's. Easy enough to make, even for a first time baker and the results are a beautiful sweet bread with a nice texture. Enjoy it with your morning coffee or your afternoon tea!!
A good friend and former co-worker brought these squares to a baby shower a number of years ago. Makes for a very delicious dessert to take to a family gathering or any occasion and guaranteed you'll get lots of requests for the recipe. Bet when you try them, you won't be able to stop at just one!!!
This recipe was taken from the Jan/Feb 2006 issue of Saltscapes (Canada's east coast magazine). A lady from New Minas, Nova Scotia won third prize in the magazine's 5th annual recipe contest for this cake. Depending on just how tart I want the glaze and if I want more of it, I sometimes double or even triple it.
What can I say...I like things simple. Here is another recipe that is taken from Campbell's Dinner's On in 30 Minutes or Less that is quick and goes great served with rice. It calls for condensed chicken broth with garlic & herbs but I have in the past used plain chicken broth and added a touch of garlic and whatever dried herbs I have on hand.
My first job was as a stenographer for the N.S. Fish Packers Association and at the time they were promoting using frozen fish fillets in meals. They gave away free fish recipes on laminated cards to anyone that requested them by mail. Here is one that I use over & over again as it is quick, easy and tastes really good.
Found this recipe on the all recipes website a number of years ago and have been enjoying these sandwiches ever since! Depending on the amount of pork being used, I sometimes double or triple the recipe for the sake of having extra sauce. Goes great with a nice tossed salad for either lunch or supper.
Before discovering Zaar, I had a a terrible habit of printing off recipes from other sights or clipping them from magazines and newspapers anticipating making them in the future. This particular recipe I printed in Sept/03 and decided to make it yesterday Jan.10/06 as I wanted to try something a bit different with chicken. It is from another site - southernfood.about.com and was very simple to make. My hubby was the taste tester for this particular dish and it must have met with his approval as there was a note on the kitchen table when I got home today that said - "Hope there is chicken left for me for dinner tomorrow. It is really, really good."
This recipe was one that I received from my Mom (now deceased). Don't know where she acquired it. Mom was always one for trying new recipes and this apparently was one that met with her approval and mine too, I might add. Great comfort food I like to serve during one of our chilly Nova Scotia winters.
