Dasha’s Cottage Cheese Pie

An old family recipe for a cottage cheese ‘pie’ baked in a square pan…so not really a ‘pie’ but not a square either! This recipe has a cake like bottom, cottage cheese filling & cake like top… slightly sweet but not too much sugar…baked to a golden brown. But it isn’t really a cake either!…

Cottage Cheese Muffins

I love these cottage cheese muffins. The recipe is from over 40 years ago! Our family has been making them forever! I think the original recipe was given to my mom by a friend of hers. Sometimes I would play  majong with my mom’s group & this friend of hers would make the cheese muffins…

This recipe is one of our family favourites at any buffet meal! This is an old recipe probably from over 25 years ago that I got from a friend of mine. Always a hit with everyone!

Another Instant Pot recipe that you can make in the oven if you do not have an Instant Pot! This pot roast recipe is from the Tasting Table Test Kitchen. It is very different from the usual pot roast recipe that I make so a really nice change for Murray!!!
