Hash Brown Casserole

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!

Macaroni Salad

This macaroni said is a bit different then some recipes I see. The recipe was given to me when I lived in Yellowknife over 30 years ago. I had actually forgotten about it, but when I was looking through my recipe book, there it was! I am happy I found it!

Spinach Broccoli Bake…..update

I was just talking to my sister this morning about this delicious dish! Sometimes I forget about the old standbys because I am looking at new recipes to put on this blog

Green Beans With Tomato Pesto

I love green beans but I don’t like them the way my mom served them!! We pretty much ate them from a can, warmed up & then they got cold on the plate…and they were a bit mushy….. but I do like them roasted! Sautéed is ok but I prefer them roasted. A bit charred…

Roasted Broccoli with Tahini Sauce

This family has been getting together…
