Baked Brunch Omelet

Do you have company coming and want to make a great breakfast as easy as possible? I first had this delicious casserole in 2010, when a bunch of us were at a chalet skiing (I was not among the skiing crew but instead helped watch the kids so others could). It is so delicious and great for large groups. It essentially tastes like a giant omelet, so if that’s your kind of thing then you’ll love this too!   Don’t…

Gluten Free Crepes!

My late father in law always made the best crepes – we loooove them and have them every Christmas morning (tradition).  But I wanted to try the recipe with Gluten Free flour to see if there would be any difference.     So I made crepes the regular way for the family and this new way for me….and if you want the truth – you can’t tell the difference. Seriously. I had my husband take a bite of mine and he…

Delicious Homemade Tomato Soup

Ah yes…one of my favorites. Often my mom and I would have grilled cheese or tuna  sandwiches and tomato soup on Sunday afternoons….we loved it. There was something really cozy about it and felt to me like one of those bonding moments. One of those memories that sticks. So naturally I’m pretty excited that my daughter also loves tomato soup – ah and so the bonding continues. 🙂 Several years ago, while visiting family in Utah, my cousin made us this…

You can modify it to your liking, though this is…

Orange/Almond Salad

This is probably my favorite salad of all time. I love making homemade dressing and being able to have a pretty salad to put it on just makes it even better….and more delicious! For the dressing, blend together: 2 chopped green onion stalks 1/3 cup vinegar 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp prepared mustard 1 cup vegetable oil (added slowly while blending)…Mazola, Canola, or Crisco…though Olive oil can be used as well And, to make a pretty salad to put it…

The Ultimate Taco Dip

Several years ago I couldn’t decide whether to make my usual taco dip or have a taco (I had leftover taco meat in the fridge)…so I decided to mix the two. And oh my heavens….the result was absolutely scrumptious and became a repeat *offender* in this house!!! I took it for a girly night and got rave reviews – it is seriously soooo good! My usual taco dip recipe – Layer: Refried Beans Guacamole (recipe linked below) Mixture of 2…

Bacon Wrapped Pineapple

I’ve made this so many times and every time I do someone *demands* the recipe. They really are that good…and in my opinion waaaay better than bacon wrapped *anything else*. I love them so much and could sit and eat a whole dish myself (I don’t, but definitely could). This recipe is from Allrecipes.com – one of my favourite recipe sites when I need something delicious 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cut into thirds 1 (20oz) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained…

My Favourite Cheeseball Recipe of All Time

I know I’ve mentioned it before – but I’m a complete cheese addict. I really do think it just makes everything taste better. So when my sister in law made this cheeseball for Christmas several years ago, I was a little embarrassed how much I ate (good thing she brought a few of them). It is SO good…and a perfect little appetizer/snack to take to a get together…or on a plate surrounded by Wheat Thins {or my new favourite, Breton…
