Edith’s Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Many years ago I was visiting my sister in California and she made these muffins. They are not too sweet, a bit dense and a perfect snack. Even though they are lemon muffins there is only a hint of lemon, which I like. As I was making these this morning, my friend was over and taste…

Quick Salmon Patties

These salmon patties are a staple in our house. I keep a couple of cans of salmon in the pantry to whip up these patties for dinner anytime. They are good as the main in a meal, on a bun as a burger or cold from the fridge.

Quick Cinnamon Swirl

I am not  sure what the name of this bread/cake is… or whether it is a yeasted cake or a cake-like bread! My aunt gave me the recipe on a piece of paper.  I have tried to search for it online to give credit to the original recipe but could not find it. I am sure…

Granola

My daughter-in-law bought me the smitten kitchen cookbook by deb perelman. I have made several recipes from the book. The pictures are great, giving us direction for some of the recipes & showing us the finished item in such a way that one can’t help but want to make it and eat it right away!

Cafe Mosiacs

I have been to Cafe Mosiacs , located at 10844 82 Avenue, Edmonton, twice in the last 2 weeks! I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get there! The food was delicious. The first time I went I had the Huevos Rancheros and my friend had the Vegan Scramble. Each of…

Spinach Broccoli Bake

This recipe is great for lunch or as a side dish. No added carbs, just vegetables, cheese and eggs. Quick and easy to put together. I plan on serving this as a side with some fish. Of course, you can eat it any way you want! Even right out of the pan with a spoon,…

Zelda’s Oatmeal Cookies

This is my mother-in-law Zelda Glick’s recipe. She may have gotten this from her mother-in-law. So now I have to give it to my daughter-in-law!!! It only takes one bowl to make this cookie batter. Easy to mix up by hand because it has oil in it instead of butter, making this batter a quick…

Lammingtons

My friend Rosemary Kitay came over and we made these Lammingtons together. Lammintons are little rectangles of  moist delicious white cake, dipped into a chocolate coating..more like a liquidy sauce.. and then rolled in coconut. We worked quickly when it came to dipping the cake into the chocolate which was really fun! A bit messy…

Sweet and Sour Meatballs from The Nosher

I love most recipes on The Nosher. So when I want to try one I am never worried about being disappointed. I wasn’t this time either. A few weeks ago they posted a recipe for Sweet and Sour meatballs served with spaghetti squash. I did the same. I must admit that I like spaghetti better…

Swedish Pastry ( Thumbprint Cookies)

A friend of mine asked me a question about the thumbprint in Thumbprint Cookies…it pops up during baking and what to do about it. So I decided best to try it out and see. I found a recipe in my ‘recipe binder’. The directions say to bake the cookies for 5 minutes then remove from…

Mushroom Soup

This is a recipe on the Smitten Kitchen website. it is the recipe for Balthazar’s cream of mushroom soup. I changed the recipe to make it non-dairy, and used dried herbs instead of the fresh ones. I will write down the recipe as I made it but will add a link to the original recipe…
