Looking out my Window

It isn’t very warm out here this morning (2C), but when the sun shines it doesn’t feel too bad. I have my window wide open and leaned out to take a few photos this morning. I took my camera to the window this morning because I heard Canada Geese and saw 2 of them that… Continue reading Looking out my Window

Now I’ve Got It

It is amazing the difference that fresh flour can make to a loaf of bread. I might see if I can find some brown or whole wheat flour to mix up my own mixture again. I did like the combination of the 2 and starting over with a new mixture should be good. I used… Continue reading Now I’ve Got It

Sour Dough Bread Experience

Since my last post, I have made my first 2 loaves of bread from my sour dough starter. The first loaf did not rise much at all and turned out to be very a very heavy bread. I did eat a couple of slices, but have to admit that it wasn’t great. Most of the… Continue reading Sour Dough Bread Experience

Keeping Safe

Covid-19 is not the first pandemic that has threatened this world – but it is the current one. There was no internet for the other big ones though, and this has been a method of spreading the information (both true and untrue information) quickly for this pandemic. So – how are you doing? I have… Continue reading Keeping Safe

I think I’ve Got it Right Now

I’ve made a couple of variations of the meat pie made using the crescent dinner rolls as the crust, but I tried something a little bit different today. The meat part can be whatever you like, but my favourite is ground beef, mushrooms, fresh spinach and cream of mushroom soup.  I don’t measure anything.  … Continue reading I think I’ve Got it Right Now

Italian Crescent Casserole

Every once in awhile a recipe appeals to me and I decide to give it a try.  If you have seen any of my food blogs before, you will know that I seldom follow it completely though.  🙂 This one – found at Pillsbury is no exception.  I like to use recipes as a general… Continue reading Italian Crescent Casserole

Milk Tart (Melktert)

Milk Tart or Melktert is an African dessert.  In Afrikans, it is called Melktert, but since I am not African, I will just call it by the English name of Milk Tart.  As you might guess, milk is the primary ingredient in this yummy pie.  🙂 I had never heard of Milk Tart before going… Continue reading Milk Tart (Melktert)

Pumpkin Pie

I finally decided to use up the rest of the can of pumpkin and make myself a pumpkin pie yesterday.  I took the easy way and used a pre-made graham wafer crust instead of making a pie crust, and followed the recipe on the evaporated milk can. I don’t think I’ve ever actually made a… Continue reading Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Raisin Bars

It is time to do some more baking. Due to having a can of pumpkin opened, I had to think of uses for it besides Chester’s food dish (since he doesn’t seem to like it).  I knew there was too much in this can at 1 tablespoon per meal anyway, so I found my first… Continue reading Pumpkin Raisin Bars

Peanut Butter Cookies

I have probably mentioned before that I am not a cook or a baker and I never actually follow recipes when I do attempt to make something. My friend Chardon, whom I have known online for many years, casually mentioned peanut butter cookies this morning on FaceBook and I started thinking I should make some.… Continue reading Peanut Butter Cookies
