Oven Baked BBQ Chicken

Another one of my mother-in-laws delicious recipes. We ate this a lot when we lived near  Murray’s parents & whenever we went to visit.  Advertisements

Butternut Kugel

This baked butternut squash side dish is delicious! Just mix it up & pop it in the oven to cook while you get the rest of dinner ready!

Sponge Cake

This recipe was given to me by a great lady. Her name was Dasha & I love to make this cake and remember her every time I do. I am always nervous that the cake won’t rise..& when it does I know that she would be proud…:))

Butternut Squash Soup with Curry

The first time I tasted this soup was at my friend Joyce’s house. She had made it for lunch & I fell in love with it. Smooth & sweet with a bit of spice, it is really wonderful.

Oven Roasted Pickled Brisket

This is my go-to pickled brisket dish. I have boiled pickled briskets, I have made them in an InstaPot My New Instant Pot! Corned Beef & Cabbage, bur my very favourite way to cook & eat a picked brisket is this way!

Fresh Corn Salad with Tomatoes

Fresh corn cut off the cob, fresh crisp tomatoes, mint & feta! This corn salad is delicious with just olive oil & salt & pepper to dress it. A perfect accompaniment to anything really. 

Baked Pasta with Ricotta Cheese

Kind of like lasagna, but only in that it is a cheesy baked pasta dish topped with mozzarella cheese & a sprinkle of parmesan…..vegetarian & delicious!

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

This cake recipe has a delicious cooked filling made for strawberries & rhubarb. So, there is a bit of a ‘process’ to put this together but it is worth it. It makes a large cake, in a 9 x 13 pan, so perfect to take to a pot-luck or for a party! I am freezing…

Cold Beet Borscht

This is one of the easiest soups I have ever made!! I was a bit skeptical about it when I looked at the recipe, but it was a recipe of my aunt’s, so I decided to have faith & give it a try! 

Slushy Blended Mojito

Whenever we entertain in the summer, we make this drink! This is Murray’s ‘job’ & he makes them perfectly! Cold & slushy…this blended mojito is delicious! The recipe is from Bon Appetit 2010 so we really love this drink…we have made it for 7 years. We offer other things of your guests to drink, but…

Cookies & Cream Dessert

This is another recipe from a cookbook my son, Seth, bought me. It is a dessert made of cookies, whipped cream & a few other ingredients, put in the refrigerator for a few hours & that’s it!
