Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up

My furnace died a week and a half ago. 11 days it took to get a new one in and hooked up. I truly wish I owned my house and wasn’t relying on someone else to do & fix things. When I initially called in the problem with the furnace, the exhaust fan on the

There’s a story behind the spicy sausages….grab a chair and let’s get into it. I am a food canner. I have a 23 quart Presto pressure canner I have named Bubba…for no reason I can discern. My stove is old….I rent – if I owned, that stove would have been donated or given to someone

My mom used to make split pea soup when I was a kid. I remember the summer of cold mint split pea soup – not fondly, but I do remember it. It actually was better heated up, but to this day I cannot get my head around cold soup. Mom spent about 6 months or

This soup was a happy accident. I started out making Tuscan Wild Mushroom soup and didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes (WHAT?!) and some other things required by the recipe, and then I wasn’t in love with the flavour of what I did have, so I oomphed it up a little. Ingredients: 1 bell pepper 2-4

The more garlic you use, the safer from vampires you will be. I used 5 big cloves and I’m feeling pretty safe right now. Vampires and germs will both stay away, I’m sure. I’m a big fan of mashed potatoes – actually, potatoes, in almost any form you can name. Double baked, cheese on top,

I made sausages on Saturday! I mean, I ground the meat, added in flavouring, put into sausage casings, made sausages on Saturday. Let me just say, it is probably better as a two person job, but is completely doable with one person. I’m a bit…a lot….of a kitchen gadget nerd. I don’t have a lot

I had a plan – shortcuts all the way. I was going to the grocery store after work, going to grab a few things for a dessert I want to try and, while I was there, I was going to grab a jar of pasta sauce and a loaf of French bread or a couple

I love homemade potato soup! I love potatoes, but potato soup, with bacon and cheddar? Mmmm, mmmm, MMMMM!! My son, however, does not like potato soup. He’s broken somewhere, deep inside. He likes potatoes, he likes bacon, he likes cheese, but blend that soup smooth and he wants nothing to do with it. Good thing
