  • Summer Ambrosia

    If there was one desert I make that everyone loves, it would have to be my summer ambrosia. It has to be made up the night before, but it’s a perfect pot luck dish, or picnic  addition that never has any leftovers. It only takes a few minutes to mix up, and then you just put it into the fridge overnight.

  • Favourite Baking Powder Biscuits

    My family loves home-baked anything, but my baking powder biscuits are always a favourite. They are so easy to whip up for any meal as well. The ingredients throw together fast, and they bake up in just a few minutes. I’ve noticed one of the local coffee places now offers a choice of a breakfast sandwich made out of a baking powder biscuit instead of an english muffin. They can be a bit more crumbly, but they certainly are delicious.

  • Bulk Spaghetti Sauce

    I have one of those large electric cookers / crock pot that is big enough to cook a large turkey in. Let me tell you, even though it was pricey at the time, (and I see that they are now half the price of what they used to be) it has paid for itself over and over again.


  • No-Bake Pineapple Delight

    The kids have been planning a really nice Father’s Day for next Sunday and they’ve made a couple of requests of me and their mother for part of the food portion of the program. I’m going to take out one of those nice little 6 or 7 kg turkeys that I buy when they come on sale around the holidays and cook it up in my big electric roaster. It’s supposed to be a really nice warm weekend, so I don’t want to heat up the whole house and the kids have planned that we’ll be eating our meals outside picnic-style.

  • 1-2-3 Pancake/Waffle mix


    I’m always surprised when people buy e-made pancake mix when scratch pancakes are so easy and taste so much better! If you happen to have milk gone sour, that’s the time to plan for pancakes or waffles. The sour milk makes them even lighter and fluffier and you don’t taste the sour milk at all.

  • Bulk Crockpot Meatloaf


    I have a small crockpot that I use nearly daily to cook roasts, soups, etc. I can put my meat dish in the crockpot, set it on low and be gone all day without worrying about my meal either burning, or not getting it cooked on time.

  • Crocheted Topped Hand Towels


    My DIL loves the half hand towels that I crochet tops on to hang on her stove and around the kitchen. She says regular towels always fall on the floor, but these button around a handle and stay put.

  • Easter Eggs to Easter Brunch

    Easter was always a special event when my kids were little. First of all we would spend all day dying the hardboiled eggs and decorating them. I well remember that chrome kitchen table covered with newspapers and kids sitting on their knees in the chair carefully drawing on their eggs and then choosing the colours they wanted their egg to be. I would make up pint mason jars with all different colours by putting about a cup of lukewarm water in each, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and about a teaspoon of food colouring. Of course you could make the colours lighter or darker if you wanted by regulating the amount of food colouring you put in each jar. We only had red, green, blue and yellow food colouring, so if you wanted other colours you had to mix them together. Red and yellow makes orange, blue and red makes purple, blue and green makes turquoise.
