This is an old "Canadian Living" Recipe that has become a family favourite. We all love it, and sometimes I increase the amount of curry paste, depending on who is coming for supper! I normally make it with a pot of rice and a salad. It's a nice "different" dish when you have company. Everyone seems to love it!
These are the most Wonderful Pancakes. My kids love them, as did I as a child. This makes a large batch, but that may be the best part. Just put the batter in the fridge, and it will keep for 2 - 3 days. Whip them up in a moments notice for the whole family on a busy weekday morning. They will love you for it, trust me! Enjoy......
I got this fantastic recipe from Dr. Laurie Itcush - it was her grandmothers. It's awsome, and addictive. You can put it on ice cream, cake, graham crackers, or each other. What every floats your boat - go for it!
This is a great quick supper for those very busy soccer nights! We normally make it with a pot of rice or chow-mein. (I can sometimes con the kids into making this for me, which is even more of a bonus!) It's very good and you can add whatever vegetables that appeal to your family. I got this recipe from the Canadian Living Magazine, (1997) and have made it many, many times!
This is a wonderful Summer Dessert. You can use whatever berries you can get your hands on. The combination of the apples and cherries are just awsome! In the summer I serve it with ice cream, as that is a big hit with the kids; both big and small! Don't be scared to mix and match whatever kind of fruit you need to use up. If you don't try, you will never know!!
I have been making this great banana bread for a very long time. It's quick, easy and delicious. I normally add pecans to one loaf, chocolate chips to another, and then leave the third as is. But, you can add whatever you like, it's always very good! It should also be noted that this is a milk-fee recipe. For those mom's that have little people, this is often a real plus! No more sore tummies!
These popsicles are the invention of a very good freind of mine in Taber, Alberta. Cheryl often made them for my children, and love still love to go to her house and eat them up on hot summer days. They are a huge hit with the little kids and the BIG kids!
This a family favourite. My sister in law Amy Paun makes it often for family gatherings, and there is never a bite left. I normally make in in the morning, let it sit a good part of the day and then serve it for dessert that evening. It's really great comfort food. Try it, your family will love it as well!
This is one of my favourite desserts that my Mom makes. She has been making it for over 25 years, and we still get excited when she serves it. It's a great light dessert, and everyone just loves it, including my picky kids!!!!
This recipe came from the Barnwell Scool Cookbook. It's one of those great cookbooks from a small prairie town that I use EVERY day. It's so great! (Barnwell, Alberta) This recipe serves lots, and is great if you are have a big group of people to feed. My kids love them, as well as all the kids in our neighbourhood that visit often, and love to stay for dinner when this is in my oven!
A great recipe from the "Barnwell Cookbook." I make this often, and it can be made ahead, and then just put in the fridge until you are ready to cook it. I often make it the night before, and let it sit in the fridge. A real keeper, and Canadian Favourite!
This is a great recipe for a nice light supper. If you have leftover chicken in your fridge looking for a good home, this would be the ticket! I got this recipe from my dear sister-in-law Amy Paun. What a great cook she is!!!
My daughter Robyn has a favourite. Yes, you guessed it - BROWNIES! She just loves them, and I always have to ensure that she doesn't eat the WHOLE PAN before anyone else gets a bite! She tells me she loves them more than life itself! What a girl I have........
This is the best bean salad I have ever tasted. Our whole family loves it, even our picky kids! When we are invited to a BBQ, people always beg us to bring it, so we do..... It's fast,easy and cheap, how can you beat that?
I found this recipe in the "Home Cooking" Magazine. The recipe was adapted by a University of Alberta Med Student named Helen Yeung. It is nothing short of "Awsome". I made it with Hot & Sour Soup and a Thai Salad. A big hit!!
