Aunt Paul’s Stuffed Jumbo Pasta Shells

This recipe was inspired first, by a recipe that I had found on the AllRecipes site (I'll provide the link at the end) and secondly by a recipe on the back of the Italpasta jumbo shells package.

Pork Souvlaki And Home-Made Tzatziki

One of my favourite types of food was Mediterranean food. I could have happily lived solely on it.

I draw the line on my beloved Mediterranean food … Continue reading Pork Souvlaki And Home-Made Tzatziki

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

I always loved to cook! Baking, mmmmmmm...not so much. I was getting more into baking when I was diagnosed with ALS but sadly that never came to fruition. Such is life. When I would bake, I had to follow a recipe to the letter and even then my cakes were flat and hard. I probably … Continue reading Slow Cooker Pot Roast
