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

I went to Michael’s before Christmas. I wandered into the wrong aisle. I found chocolate melting wafers and peppermint extract. I bought them. I brought them home. I made chocolate covered mints. They were amazing. My only recommendation? Use real chocolate and temper it with coconut oil or butter. With the peppermint flavour being quite

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

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 started out thinking I was going to make alfredo pasta, then I thought I’d add shrimp, then I decided not to have alfredo, then I decided I wanted garlicky lemon shrimp with pasta, then the recipe I was following called for spinach and the bag I had in the fridge….nope. So that changed that

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

In the middle of my house being stupid hot – the new windows keep out some of the heat, but the roof is black and once this place heats up, it doesn’t want to cool off – I decided to bake a loaf of bread. I figured, as I was making the bread dough, that
