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 tested them for me…and ended up taking some home! They … Continue reading Edith’s Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
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.

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 than spaghetti squash but that’s what Murray and I had … Continue reading Sweet and Sour Meatballs from The Nosher

There is … Continue reading Swedish Pastry ( Thumbprint Cookies)
