Banana “and/or” Pumpkin Bread

About 8 years ago, I had switched banana bread recipes. A smaller batch of healthier ingredients.... it turned out that we didn't eat all that much banana bread, until I started making this recipe again. I'd tried others along the way, but this…

Jambalaya

We've been using this recipe for 15+ years but I had it saved in my physical binder from very early on and it never made it to digital until now!Jambalaya is a rice dish which originated in the 1700s with a mash up of cuisines, ingredients,…

Cajun Seasoning

I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and didn't eat out a lot. So, I didn't have any experience with Southern cooking until I was an adult and started experimenting with seasonings. The kids mosty didn't really care for the vibrant flavours…

Tamale Casserole

I try to make my life easier on days that I work my day job, by making quicker meals, or preparing as much before hand as possible. Casseroles are great for pre-prep, they can be put together in the morning, and thrown in the oven when you get…

Sunday Morning Pancakes

We have a Sunday morning routine of pancakes for breakfast. Usually just pancakes, sometimes with fried or scrambled eggs for some protein, and if we have the time for extra clean up, bacon or sausage.Way back when I was first learning to…

This has become our everyday bread! It's basically the same work as my whole wheat bread recipe, the biggest change is soaking the multigrain cereal during the proofing stage, and adding an egg and milk plus oat flour, which all together creates…

Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies

I like cake, and I like cake texture: light and springy and soft. But I do not like my brownies to look, feel, or taste like cake*. Without being sickeningly sweet and heavy, I want my brownies sweet enough a small piece is enough, super moist…

Burger & Hot Dog Buns

My lack of posting has not been for a lack of anything to post about. If you follow us on facebook or instagram, you'll find gardening and food posts, and a lot of memes - humor is the best medicine to get through some of this world wide chaos!We've…

Coleslaw

There is a bar for perfect coleslaw, as far as I am concerned, and it is very narrow. It's been about 10 years since I last ate at KFC in the US, but their coleslaw was on the ball. I haven't had coleslaw that really hit that craving since,…

Apple Fritters

There is probably no tastier carbohydrate, than deep fried, sweet dough. Just my opinion, but it's probably a pretty popular one! The only way to make deep fried, sweet dough any better, is for it to be fresh out of the fryer. Bonus points for…

Ham & Bean Soup

Soups are healthy, and easy, and super tasty, and make for great meals after long days, or lunches during the week. Just make a pot on the weekend, portion it out, freeze all but a couple, and take out what you need the night before. Soups often…
