Home Cooking Fondant Potatoes

The other day my daughter was cruising around Pinterest looking at interesting food prep ideas as kids do these days when she came across a video of a guy making Fondant Potatoes. The sort of irreverent way that he narrated the video intrigued her so she watched it and then asked me to watch it […]

Sausage Roll Follow Up

After my recent attempt at homemade sausage rolls I mentioned that I wanted to try again with a couple twists. And I did. As I said in my previous sausage roll post, I wanted to try again with better quality sausages and to make two smaller sausage rolls out of one piece of puff pastry. […]

Refrigerator Pickles

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately – I just haven’t felt like writing or sharing anything here nor on my Instagram account. No real reason other than asking myself what’s the point if any of this “sharing”. Anyway, I posted awhile ago about the refrigerator pickles I made. And, well, they’re excellent. […]

Stuffed Peppers with Campbell’s Soup

Yesterday after school the kids and I saw a video of “how to make stuffed peppers” on the Facebook and we decided to try making them in our test kitchen. They turned out pretty good – but not perfect. But…we’ll get to that. .We started out by prepping the peppers – we cut the tops off […]

The Vita-Mix; My Favourite Appliance

One of my all time favourite kitchen appliances is my Vita-Mix. The Vita-Mix is so much more than a blender! I believe it has a 2 horsepower motor that drives the blade inside the container at something like 20,000 rpm. Crazy powerful. I used to use my Vita-Mix everyday because it is so easy to […]

SushiQuik for the Home

The good folks at SushiQuik make a nifty device for rolling your own sushi at home and they were kind enough to send me a complimentary sample of their device so that I could see how it works, play around with it, and make a short video of my experience with the SushiQuik. As I […]

I have been told that these tasty little treats are relatively easy to make, especially if you have a stand mixer on your countertop. Try them with the recipe first and then get creative to do more, […]
