When I was a child, my mom and dad moved us from Ottawa, Ontario to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I guess technically it was my step-father but to me, at that time in life he was the only dad I knew. It was not until the age of 15 that I met my real father. That … Continue reading A Story and A Slow Cooker Recipe To Beat The Summer Heat
I am a little out of my mind right now so I am going to let my Aunt Paul take over this post. I'm going through a tiny bit of hell right now with all that is going on. I am reducing my Fentanyl pain patch in preparation of my starting cannabis oil. There are so … Continue reading Tabbouleh
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
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!
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 wish I had a picture of my Nanny standing at the stove, her trusted big spaghetti pot in front of her - you know the one that all grandmothers seem to have just for the big stuff like spaghetti sauce or soup - stirring the sauce. She would have been in one of her … Continue reading Nanny’s Spaghetti Sauce And Her Secret Ingredient!

If you are new to my blog, there was a time when I worked as a waitress at a local Tex-Mex restaurant. This particular restaurant had the philosophy that regardless of your hired position, it was important for you to be trained in all of the areas of the restaurant. You know, so you could … Continue reading Restaurant Style Pico de Gallo
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.
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…
