Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. Turkey day (or ham or roast or perogies or cabbage rolls) – we’re pretty accommodating like that. I went to the store on Friday and impulsively bought a turkey…quite a big turkey, although I didn’t realize quite how big until this morning. It was a frozen turkey. I have no room

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

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

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

I was gifted a bag of frozen blueberries yesterday, and by last night, I had the fiercest craving for blueberry scones. I’ve only made scones once or twice, it just never occurs to me to make them and when I do, they are very much pastry and I’m somewhat heavy handed with the pastry. 🙁

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** I was going to make banana cream pie. I didn’t. I balked at making a pie crust. Still not one of my strong suits. I could have cheated and made my pie crust with my food processor, but I really didn’t want to listen to the banshee scream it

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** My mom used to make a pound cake when I was a kid – it had Maraschino cherries in it. I genuinely loved that pound cake – actually, truth be told, I really just loved the cherries and the cake was merely a vehicle to get them into my

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** Yesterday, I made the sticky pork belly and because only one of us had ever had it, I thought perhaps we should have another protein in case my son’s girlfriend led us completely astray and pork belly was terrible. (she didn’t, it wasn’t) I considered making fried rice, also,

We went grocery shopping yesterday, and while we normally get our meat at Costco, in an effort to expand our meat selection, we vowed to look at the other grocery stores we visited. Again, I love Costco, but I do NOT need a $160.00 hunk of beef or a $70.00 pack of ribs. First, wow

Two weeks ago, I bought a 2 pound container of strawberries while I was at Costco. Say what you will about Costco (I love the place) but their produce is excellent. Yesterday, I decided I should probably use what was left of those berries and all were still good except one. There are many stores
