I literally have nothing! I have been sick for the last two weeks or so with not one but TWO different infections one after another. And I am tired guys! I don't have my usual good outlook on my life, living with ALS and all. So, instead of passing my poor me attitude onto you … Continue reading I’ve Got Nothing… And Cousin Shawn’s Risotto Recipe
I was an only child until the age of nine. Well, nine and a half really. I met my real Father at the age of fifteen. My stepfather was the only Dad that I had. I do not remember not having him as my Dad, I was that young when he entered my life. He … Continue reading Why I Hate Canned Peas And The Recipe That Redeemed Them – Hertha’s Dill Peas!
I’ve heard about and read a number of blogs where they all insist that cauliflower rice is the best thing BUT until Carol posted this, I was not convinced. Carol, I trust YOU so I pass this on to my followers!
My computer…well, it will come when it comes. Now we are trying a different one so I don’t know what to tell you. It’s just not happening as quickly as I was told.
Happy cooking everyone!
My recipe tried and tested and it’s awesome………. Cauliflower Rice.
And all you need is a Cauliflower and an Onion.
A little Coconut oil to cook or other oil of your choice.
Sea Salt and a squeeze Lemon Juice.
Either grate or blitz in a food processor ( but not too fine) you want some texture.
Heat pan and keep pan HOT as you don’t want Cauliflower to steam and go soggy.
Use Tablespoon Coconut Oil and put in the desired amount of Cauliflower and onion mix.
Cook quickly and then season and add lemon juice.
All in all, it only takes a few minutes to cook….. a bit longer if more than one portion but keep pan hot.
If you wish to vary the taste you can add 1 tsp of Cumin seeds to oil before adding Cauliflower if you are eating…

How was everyone’s holiday? You get any good presents? Eat any good food?
I hope the answer to both of those questions is yes. You deserve both.
Here we are at the end of 2017, and I feel like this year just flew by. My cooking and baking schedule for December is almost always hectic as I’m busy putting together recipes and posts for the 12 Days of Christmas series I do every year on the blog. Then all at once the holiday comes, the bustle is over and everything is calm and lax.
A lot of us have a tendency to indulge in a whole lot of sweet and not so lean treats during the holidays that after a while may feel like a sugar overload. I certainly love my carbs and sweets and I’ll never give them up–but after a while I too find myself craving leaner foods…

Before I talk about this post, I would love to take a minute to tell you about my stupid computer. I can look at SOME posts by other bloggers. I can reblog them. I can respond to comments and even comment on the blogs that my stupid computer lets me see. I can even like … Continue reading Holiday Bread Stuffing
This recipe was inspired by the lazy summer days of my youth. The kind of weekends where everyone got together for a barbecue. Slices of watermelon, hotdogs and hamburgers! There were always a big selection of sides too! Pasta salads, potato salads, green salads and fresh fruits. Someone always brought one of those weird jello … Continue reading Classic Potato Salad
My family has a tradition of gathering at one particular Chinese food restaurant. It is THE Chinese food place to go to and share a meal! The place is a little hole in the wall (which in my opinion always makes a great place) called Gows. It's in the west end of Ottawa in a … Continue reading Home-Made Egg Rolls
I never was much of a bread eater unless it was in the following category. Rye, whole grain or those very dense home-made breads. I also liked toasted bread to plain bread which is where my love of Bruschetta came in! And of course the roasted tomatoes and cheeses. This recipe is a favorite of … Continue reading Roasted Tomato & Goat Cheese Bruschetta

This salad is a favorite of mine. I don't know why I didn't make it more often because I only ever made it on the holidays. I really should have made it more often because it's such a simple salad! I didn't always add the bacon, in fact I rarely did. It does add a … Continue reading Broccoli Salad
