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…

Taco Soup

I first posted this recipe exactly 6 years ago today and it remains one of my fall favorites. It’s perfect for those chilly days that remind you winter is just around the corner (*I’ll miss you summer*) or those snowstorm days when all you wanna do is hang out in your pyjamas and curl up with the fam….it’s a hearty meal that always makes me feel like we are well fed. You can modify it to your liking, though this is…

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*.

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…

The Only Spinach Dip Recipe You Need

I have tasted so many different versions of Spinach Dip – and this one is still my favorite. 1 cup Sour Cream 1 cup Mayo/Miracle Whip dash garlic powder 1 medium minced onion 1 Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix 1 Package thawed, chopped, and drained spinach (squeeze in your hand to let out all the water). I usually use about 1/2 of the package instead of the entire thing. Mix together and refrigerate 1-2 hours. Take out insides of Round Sourdough Loaf…

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…

Spinach Salad with Raspberry-Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

I’m a sucker for a good homemade salad dressing, and am always looking for a new recipe. This fits the bill completely. And soooo easy (they often are) and seriously scrumptious. For the salad: Spinach a bunch of fruit cut up into bite sized pieces (apples, grapes, mandarins, strawberries, raspberries, melon, etc.) sliced almonds or pecans (I like to sugar mine – equal parts margarine and sugar….melt and mix together in pan, add nuts and stir. watch carefully so they…
