S’mores Cones

S’mores Cones

When spaghetti and meatballs was requested, naturally I figured I’d just find a way to sneak in some barbecue. I’m pretty sure I figured it out actually. My plan was to make the sauce early in the day, as usual, and make the spaghetti shortly […]

Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes

I usually choose a cookbook every January to cook and bake my way through over the year. This year my youngest, Daphne, asked if she could pick one to work through as well! I told her that her brother and sister have baked their way […]

Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie

Technically, today was day 3, but I will blog about that tomorrow morning hopefully. Tonight, I’ll write about yesterday’s dinner, our second night of barbecue. It was a fairly plain peppercorn steak, with roasted potatoes with bacon and chives and corn. Grinding peppercorns made me […]

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky Toffee Pudding

This is a hit or miss when it comes to the kids actually eating it at the end, but Miss Wee One #3 really liked making it. Some of our friends in the 10 and over crowd liked it, all the adults who tried it […]

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

It started with beautiful strawberries. Huge, bright, lovely strawberries that inspired me to whip up a strawberry shortcake. For a split second, I thought of making an angel food cake with this but if I’m honest, as natural as angel food cake is to pair […]
