Mega Mushroom Yum

Mushrooms - one of nature's most versatile treasures! You can use them on their own or to enhance other flavours. I love these fun fungi and add them everywhere. When Mushrooms Canada asked me if I had any good recipes my mouth started watering thinking of the possibilities. I decided for the first recipe that crostinis would be a good one to start with since there are so many combinations that are easy and work well. Seriously you can take whatever you have in your kitchen, toss it in the frying pan and add it to your toasted bread. Taadaa! Easy…

Easy Cheesy Potatoes

Cheesy Goodness It's that time of the year again where this delicious recipe pops up! My sister and I have had this cheesy potato recipe from our Dad from many moons ago. We make it all the time and bring it to dinners and potlucks. It's the perfect dish to travel with and if you can make it ahead of time, you only need to heat it up right before serving. Highly sought after, this dish is super easy to make.  But I must warn you, if you make it once, you'll have to make it many more times. It's very easy…

Ginger Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Filling

Prepare for ginger "gastrogasms"... ...with this cookie when you try it - it is ridiculously delicious. The ginger flavour is perfect and the sweet and tangy lemon icing makes me want to lick all the leftovers out of the bowl. Together they are the best match made since my husband and I met.  This recipe came from the new cookbook called Lick Your Plate and I was very excited to receive it earlier this month. I asked my family to pick a few recipes we could try out. After extensive thinking and LONG turns, this is what they came up with: (How crazy is…

Become a Bacon Believer

There are many crazy things on the internet these days. So many. Last year, Hubs and I discovered the mad talents of the Ninja powered, safety oriented and video savvy Crazy Russian Hacker. This man combines elegant speech with wildly clever demonstrations for a myriad of breathtaking and awesome life hacks. Seriously - he is one cool dude and I admire his confidence. In an attempt to read something other than the usual health conscious bloggity-blog that pops up at this time of the year, I decided to post about one of my favourite things - Bacon. The timing for seeing this video was…

Mum’s Sausage Tomato Casserole

This recipe was taught to me by my mum. I have very early recollections of her preparing the layers, peppering each one as she made it and the delicious smells that steadily grew. This is one of my favourite meals. You will need: ( All the amounts depend on what you like best. This list will tell you the minimum you need. ) 1 pack breakfast sausages, ( or whatever flavour you love, ); Can of diced tomatoes - drained; 1 Large onion; Green beans drained - canned, or frozen - canned works best due to the consistency; Potatoes to make enough…

Attention all Picky Eaters! Loaded Potato and Buffalo Chicken Casserole

Last night I tried a new recipe. I'll now attempt to recreate it for you on this page. I lost the original link but it shows up on Facebook now and then. With a bit of customization, it's our favourite new dish. I even took pictures! You must understand that I live with people who all have different preferences. It's maddening. Thing one won't eat vegetables and fruit. Thing two doesn't like most dairy products. The spouse - well he will eat anything. I don't usually like seasoned potatoes. When I come across a dish that pleases them all -…
