I like perogies. I don’t like making them from scratch, though. I have done, and I will do it again, but I don’t enjoy it. I really, really like the brand Costco carries. They are white cheddar and potato and they are amazing. If I had that recipe, I would make them from scratch always.

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

Baked Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese

I have to admit it – I make my own sun-dried tomatoes. Whenever I can’t get through the tomatoes I buy before they start going soft, I either toss them in the freezer (whole) or I slice them up and put them on the dehydrator for a few hours. When they’re done, I put them

The other night, I cast around for something for supper for probably half an hour. My birthday is the 29th of August, every year, in case you’re wondering, and the mancub bought me an electric griddle because he had to work on my day and he couldn’t hang out with me. When I got home

Once upon a time, I worked full time across town, while riding Calgary Transit – although reliable, not the fastest or most direct method of getting anywhere. Calgary is a sprawling city. Downtown is quite closed in but very small compared to many other major cities, however the suburbs are massive. There are trains that

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

I started making Mississippi Pot Roast quite a few years ago, and it’s always a favourite. I use the au jus to make either a dipping sauce or a gravy…..I blend those pepperoncini peppers right on in there (I do pop the stems off, though). I used to set up the slow cooker and just

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

Air Fryer Pickles

I am pretty sure my daughter introduced me to fried dill pickles – it definitely was not my son. He doesn’t particularly like them. He doesn’t particularly like dill pickles to begin with – he likes homemade ones but not bought ones – they’re too pickle-y. I think the vinegar is too sharp and prominent
