I always end up with leftover mashed potatoes. I overestimate how much we’re going to eat, or I underestimate how big those potatoes really are….one way or another, there’s always a small bowl of leftovers hiding in the fridge. The more I cook, and I cook a lot, the more little leftover bowls there will

It’s a classic….not necessarily the cherry part of the proceedings, but the crumble. When I bought the can of pumpkin for the pumpkin bars, they were on sale. I don’t like pumpkin enough to stock two cans, I prefer fresh or frozen blueberries to canned, and the cherry one looked so inviting. The picture looked

I’m not a fanatic for pumpkin spice. Don’t come for me with pitchforks and torches! I like pumpkin, although I cannot fathom why anyone would make pumpkin soup with sweet spices….I definitely prefer savoury soup. It isn’t that I don’t like pumpkin spice particularly, I love the components of it – I don’t actively hate

Ohhh, chocolate, how I love thee! I even like chocolate protein powder and nobody likes that. We had Pho soup for supper, and I figured with all the vegetables, I could squeeze in some kind of chocolate dessert type thing and be okay with it. So, the search was on. By the way, shortly there

Tonight was no energy for making supper. None. My son suggested burgers for supper and I let him know I had taken nothing out of the freezer to thaw…..and just under his breath, he said something about “she thinks I mean make burgers”….but my sharp ears heard what he said and I asked “buy dinner”

I have tried making these before and they didn’t overwhelm me….but having cooked many different types of potato dishes since then, I’m pretty sure I messed them up and blamed the recipe and not the cook, so I’m trying them again. I have high hopes! These are named after a restaurant in Sweden that first

Funny story – I actually wanted noodles for supper tonight…..and somehow I ended up at beef pie. The internet is a wondrous thing. You start somewhere, looking for inspiration and end up a million pages away. Anyway, this can be made with a pie crust to completely enclose it, just a top pie crust or

It finally rained here. It’s been screaming hot for what seems like months – bear in mind, we have snow starting in September and not ending until March or April, so we are far more accustomed to cool or cold temperatures than hot. My lawn was brown in the front yard (no shade) and my

I actually had a brain flash last night and was going to make Nutella Danish, just for fun. Not because I particularly like Nutella, but the jar of it in the cupboard should be used, right? And then, when I was taking out the puff pastry, I remembered I had some homemade marmalade in the

Baking Powder Biscuits – With Mayonnaise

If you’re grossed out by this, you should absolutely not be. You can’t taste it and mayonnaise is eggs, oil and vinegar, basically. Pretty much what goes into bread products all the time. I like baking powder biscuits. I love them baked fresh to go with whatever meal it is we’re having or even just
