Cranberry Orange Muffins


I think by now you are all aware of my obsession with muffins. Honestly, I think I could live on muffins alone! That reminds me of something. I remember working as a nurse on some of the hospital units and physicians would occasionally admit patients, usually women, under the diagnosis of "Tea and Toast Syndrome". What usually happened was, these wee women were living on their own. They didn't have the will or inclination to go to the bother of preparing a nutritious meal, just for … [Read more...]

How to Safely and Easily Clean Those Grimy Oven Racks

How to Safely and Easily Clean Those Grimy Oven Racks

Here on Canada's east coast, we have just endured a winter of epic proportions. I think I can safely say, I hope I am not jinxing myself, that spring is finally poking its head out from beneath a blanket of snow. Even though the snow is still evident, the temperatures are gradually rising and we have finally been able to open the windows for a breath of fresh air. The first thing on my spring cleaning list is our oven. It is a disaster! Sounds easy enough, right?  Remove the racks, set the … [Read more...]

PEI Mussels in Creamy White Wine Sauce

PEI Mussels

A couple of evenings ago we had unexpected guests drop in for a visit. Does this every happen to you? Anyway, as I was hanging up coats, I was searching my brain, trying to think of something we could have with a glass of wine. Then I remembered that in the freezer, I had a loaf of PC® artisan bread as well as a box of President's Choice® PEI Mussels in Creamy White Wine Sauce. Problem solved! I grabbed the bread and mussels from the freezer and headed to the kitchen as my hubby poured us … [Read more...]

Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies


If you are looking to shake up your usual chocolate chip cookie recipe, here is a simple little switch.  All I did was take my recipe for Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies and substituted the vanilla pudding with chocolate pudding and the semi-sweet chocolate chips with white chocolate chips. I have made some version or another of this recipe since I was 12 or 13. They are easy to make, moist, chewy and unbelievably delicious.  Coincidentally, or probably not so coincidentally…as they both came … [Read more...]

The Greatest Flavour on Earth is the Taste of Home {w/Recipe}

039 edited

Until he retired, I never knew my dad loved to cook.  I was in high school at the time and I remember he used to make the most fabulous meals. He even made his own mayonnaise; which back then, at least in my circles, was pretty much unheard of! I can still vividly recall coming home from school to the most wonderful aroma of chicken or beef roasting and his famous molasses cookies cooling on racks...YUM! Isn't it amazing how aromas have the ability to transport you back in time?  Whenever … [Read more...]

~ CLOSED ~ Facts and Benefits of Kefir {w/$50.00 GC Giveaway}


I LOVE yogurt and eat it almost everyday.  Most of us are familiar with yogurt and it's benefits; but are you acquainted with the benefits of kefir?  Do you know what kefir is? Until recently, I did not have much knowledge of kefir.  I had heard of it, knew it was a  yogurt like drink, but that was about it. So, I have done a bit of research and this is what I have found: Kefir is a fermented milk drink made with kefir "grains" (a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter). Originating … [Read more...]
