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.comΒ – 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

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…

Kick Your Cold With Magical Healing Soup

As requested on facebook – Magical Healing Soup! From AliciaΒ  Silverstone’s book – The Kind Diet this soup is perfect for those days you are feeling a little under the weather.

In my salad bowl…

I love a good salad, filled with a little of everything. I can be satisfied, full, and sustained from a great salad. I have a few salad dressings that I rotate between (most of them homemade) so I don’t ever feel like it’s the *same old* thing (though I can honestly say I’ve never felt that way anyways). I remember a friend growing up commenting to me that her mom never really ventured into new territory when it came to…
