My mom used to make these when I lived at home….I don’t remember if they were for special occasions or just because. Knowing my dad’s love of dessert and such, probably both occasions were reason enough to make them. I rarely make the tarts, though. I don’t like making pastry. I now am able to

Okay, first of all…..was everyone else aware there is chocolate Chex? I had no idea. I stopped buying cereal a lot of years ago and we shut off cable 6 or more years ago. So evidently, I was not up on the latest cereal developments. Personally, I think it shouldn’t be marketed as a breakfast

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

Every single time I see or hear the word “Parfait”, Donkey from Shrek says it in my head. The word “waffles” is also like that. Both my kids can quote that movie, from start to finish, usually during the movie, which gives the strangest stereo effect…because they are quoting ahead of the movie. And as

The first time I saw something about lemon curd, I was speaking with my daughter afterwards and mentioned was an offputting name it had – and she raved about it – had it somewhere, absolutely loved it. I like lemon flavour a whole lot, so I gave it a go, despite the name. The first

They taste like Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, I swear. And they’ve got that little crunchy something that I always thought was peanuts but wasn’t. These are not low carb and they are not keto – although, they probably could be, with the exception of the graham cracker crumbs – not sure what you could substitute

Once upon a time, long ago (depressingly so), before my kids were born, my ex and I would go to his parents’ house for supper and his mom would make this cake mix from a box that you mixed in the baking pan. She mixed the cake then sprinkled a topping over it and then

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** A massive craving hit yesterday. I had the worst….need….for an ice cream sandwich. When my kids were small, we used to go for a walk around the neighbourhood and midway through, we would stop by the convenience store near 16th Avenue and buy everyone a treat. Given it was
