I had my feeding tube replaced on Monday. It went well. I stress myself out beforehand because I have had so many problems in the past. Not with the doctor at the Civic Hospital that has been helping me with my tubes in the past and on Monday. With the doctors and some nurses here … Continue reading Random Thoughts And Other Things – 11

Turkey Meatballs with Spinach and Sundried Tomatoes

These look so good that I just had to share it with you! I apologize for my disappearing act but I’m kinda going through a slight hell right now. I am lowering the dose of my Fentanol patch in preparation for my going on Medical Cannabis. I didn’t want to go through withdrawal and an increase of pain while starting a new pain medication. I would not of known what was doing what. So give me a week or two and I will be back to fighting shape! Oh and go make these meatballs – you can find my recipe for tzatziki if you enter pork souvlaki in the search field – and tell me how good they are, k?! xo

Oh Yes, They Did

Let me start by saying these smelled so good while they were cooking lol…. enough so that I took my chances and had a few myself with dinner!

I had some spinach still frozen and some sundried tomatoes in the fridge from when I made my Tuscan Garlic Chicken last week and thought these would be a great addition to ground turkey to make some meatballs for dinner.

These were so good that I didn’t even add a sauce to them when they were cooking, I just piped some tzatziki sauce on them right before serving!

Sandie



These are the ingredients I used to make the meatballs.

I added ALL of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl…..

And mixed by fork and by hand until it was very well blended, before shaping the mixture into the meatballs. I made mine about 1 1/2 inches round.

I baked the meatballs…

I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and over the weekend we lived through 2 tornadoes! There was no power at the hospital on Saturday, just the back up generators. No cable, no Internet access. Today, many people are still with no power and many people have lost their homes. It's unbelievable really. Ottawa is not … Continue reading Random Thoughts And Other Things – 9

Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Casserole

This casserole looks too good to be true! It’s heavenly and you do not have to stand in front of a stove making one or two pieces of French Toast at a time. You can prep it all the night before and then pop it in the oven the next morning! Heaven and no prep time the day of!
I’m a huge fan of French Toast, or at least I was and I have to admit that if I had known that you could make it soooooo easily, I may have had a few extra pounds on my bum! lol I know a certain niece who loves raisin bread and I’m going to guess that she would love this casserole.
Happy cooking!

Not far from our home, there is a Pepperidge Farm Outlet that we often visit when going to a nearby mall. One of the items I usually stock up on is the cinnamon raisin bread that is always marked down to a reasonable price. I bring the loaves home and tuck them in the freezer for lots of different recipes.
This is a tasty casserole that takes minutes to put together. It’s such a treat to put a big pan of French toast in the oven rather than standing in front of the stovetop making slices in small batches. This makes for more time to enjoy early morning conversation with the family while savoring the awesome combination of cinnamon, raisin, pecans and maple syrup with a piping hot cup of coffee. I often make this the night before serving so that when I wake up there is no prep time…

Blue Ridge Apple Cake… — Camellia’s Cottage

It might come as a surprise that the Appalachian Region is apple growing country. Settlers from Scotch Irish descent brought apple seeds with them to grow in the new land… with the help of Cherokee Indians apples became widely grown. With temperatures dipping into the 20s and highs in the 80s – the plateaus produce … Continue reading Blue Ridge Apple Cake… — Camellia’s Cottage

Tim Horton’s Pumpkin Spice Muffin Copycat Recipe

I am reblogging this post for one reason. Well, one reason that spills into a number of them! lol
I’m a pumpkin fanatic! If I could bake, or move at all, I would be baking DOZENS of these muffins! I may, or perhaps not, even have shared them. If I could eat, I would possibly have added many pounds to my bum by hording them all to myself. And I would not care! That’s how pumpkin crazy I am! I’ve told you before that I was the weirdo kid who wanted pumpkin pie for her birthday instead of cake. Sadly, I wasnt allowed because “apparently” the other kids wouldn’t have come to my party if there was no cake! How rude?! lol
Anyhoo, I really want my family To make these muffins and tell me how yummy they are. Now, how can I turn this recipe into ice cream which is the only thing that I can eat now…

Not too long ago things were looking a little like this:

And I was inside making something that looks a lot like this:

PumpkinSpice

You guessed it: Tim Horton’s Pumpkin Spice Muffins!  This recipe is a mixture of other pumpkin and/or spice muffin recipes I’ve found and tweaked a little bit to make it a near-perfect Timmie’s knock-off.  The muffins are moist and spiced and the crunch of the toasted pumpkin seeds is the perfect adornment atop a muffin filled with a fluffy cream cheese frosting.

These are perfect for a fall morning!  (And since winter doesn’t officially begin until after the 21st of December, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy these muffins this fall.)

Without further adieu, I present to you…

My copycat recipe for Tim Horton’s Pumpkin Spice Muffins:

Ingredients:

For the Muffins:

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground…
