Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

I love biscuits! They are versatile, so simple to make and can be used in either a sweet (think Strawberry Shortcake) or a savoury application. They are perfect slathered with a little peanut butter or honey for breakfast or a little snack and with the addition of some cheddar cheese, they are the perfect accompaniment to chili, soups, salads and stews. If I need a little something to "go along with" the main course. Biscuits are what I usually bake. Did I mention how easy they are to … [Read more...]

Tuna Melts Recipe

Tuna Melts

I have made Tuna Melts for as long as I can remember. They are perfect for a quick-lunch, a snack or even paired with a salad as a light dinner. When my kiddos were little and I would ask them what they wanted for dinner, they most often would respond with Tuna Melts.  In fact, even though they are no longer little, they still love to eat these delicious and easy to make open-face sandwiches. There are probably hundreds of variations of this easy recipe "out there" on the web. Mine is … [Read more...]

Glazed Clementine Loaf

076 edited wfont

It seems that from December through much of the winter, clementines are in abundance. I can't go into my local grocery store without seeing a big display of this tasty, easily peeled fruit. Not only are clementines perfect in lunch boxes or as a midnight snack, they are also the perfect fruit to put in a citrus loaf. I have made my Mom's recipe for Lemon Bread for a hundred years. Not only is it simple to make and delicious, it turns out perfectly every time. My Mom died in January of … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

I love the fall and winter.  I know that is a bit of an unusual statement, but it's true.  There is something so comforting and homey about those seasons.  From the gorgeous colours of fall to the crisp, cold magical whiteness of a winter's night, I love it all! Another thing I love about fall and winter is cooking and baking.  The coziness of the aromas of cinnamon, baking bread and freshly made cookies drifting from my oven is just impossible to resist!   One of my favourite things to bake … [Read more...]

How to Make Hot Cross Buns {Recipe}

Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns are an Easter/Springtime tradition for us.  In the past I would always buy them, but last year, I decided to make them... and they were DELICIOUS! If you are not familiar, Hot Cross Buns are a spiced sweet bun made with currants and other dried fruits and marked with a cross on the top.  In many countries, they are  traditionally eaten on Good Friday, but are now popular all year round, especially in the spring. In many historically Christian countries, these buns are … [Read more...]

Grammie’s Oatmeal Molasses Brown Bread

Oatmeal-Molasses-Brown-Bread

I mentioned in an earlier post how most of Canada is now in the midst of the "dog days" of winter.  I live on the east coast and we have already been totally pummeled this year and winter has officially, barely begun.  On December 23rd we were entombed in ice more than an inch thick, lost power for days (many for up to 11 days!) had four successive snow storms and are now in the midst of bone chilling, record breaking cold temperatures. What is a girl to do with all of this wild weather but … [Read more...]

Rosemary & Sea Salt Focaccia

My husband is a huge Italian food fan.  He would literally eat Italian, especially pasta, every day of the week and be completely happy!  I like Italian food also, but I am definitely not in the same league! However, I must admit to loving Italian focaccia bread. Focaccia is a flat oven-baked Italian bread, which is usually topped with herbs or other ingredients. It is popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with olive oil and salt. … [Read more...]
