Witches Hats

See my privacy policy for details. This really is a craft more than baking, the original recipe calls for you to bake sugar cookies (with cocoa added to make them brown) but I cheated due to time restraints. I am proud of the fact that I managed to make the damn things, never mind baking the bottoms! The bottoms I bought chocolate covered digestive cookies, then mini cones for the top. Melt chocolate in the micro carefully ( I say carefully because you can trash it so easily, or at least I sure can) take your handy dandy pasty brush, and paint away.

Easy, and LOTS of fun to do with kids. And this is something on my list to make, a melon brain! Spiderman Cake. Space Ship/Rocket Birthday Cake. This post may contain affiliate links.

Space Ship/Rocket Birthday Cake

See my privacy policy for details. This was supposed to be a space shuttle, this cake was not in any way, shape or form supposed to look like it did. It was supposed to look like the one on the Berry Crocker website. The bleepers at Betty Crocker though, sneakily used a white cake. My crumb layer failed so completely at its job on the cake, it wasn’t even funny. Awful. So you start with a 9×13 cake. I cut out the rocket shape onto paper, then used it to cut the cake.

So. Save one piece of cake, and cut into a square to attach to the bottom for your “rocket flames”. Mix your icing colors and plenty, because you never achieve the same color again. Do a crumb layer and refreeze to make your life easier. Alfredo Sauce With Mushrooms. This post may contain affiliate links.

Alfredo Sauce With Mushrooms

See my privacy policy for details. I crave hot pastas in the winter, they are definitely a seasonal fare for me, and I was definitely having a craving when I put this together. Besides the fact that Parmesan is amazing, Asiago cheese is the bees knees when it comes to flavor. Red Wine & Mushroom Pork Tenderloin. This post may contain affiliate links.

Red Wine & Mushroom Pork Tenderloin

See my privacy policy for details. This juicy, tender roasted pork tenderloin is smothered in a red wine and mushroom sauce. Black Forest Zuccotto. This post may contain affiliate links.

Black Forest Zuccotto

See my privacy policy for details. Black Forest Zuccotto is a delicious dome of chocolate cake that is filled with cherries and whipped cream. While the traditional zuccotto is a sponge cake, I wanted to make something that was our favourite taste combination, which is chocolate and cherries! On the Easter Menu Today....

On the Easter Menu Today....

See my privacy policy for details. Because food is the only thing on my mind today (let’s hear it for holidays!) I thought I would be a nerd and post what I am cooking up! Breakfast is homemade Americano’s thanks to our handy espresso machine my dad re-gifted us, then when our bleary eyes open, perhaps a slice or two of Babka. Lemon Strawberry Shortcake.

Lemon Strawberry Shortcake

See my privacy policy for details. Ok ok, after dragging it out for a while, here is what I did with my Lemon Tea Scones and my Lemon Whipped Cream recipes. I made Lemon Strawberry Shortcake. Bake up your Lemon Tea scones that day.These weren’t going to be a separate recipe, but they are in fact the shortcake component of my lemon Strawberry Shortcake. Real shortcake is a scone or biscuit, not a cake. Slice up a bunch of fresh strawberries. Recipe Tease. This post may contain affiliate links.

Recipe Tease

See my privacy policy for details. Just a tease of the recipes that are coming up in the next couple weeks….this was my brunch for my wonderful company yesterday. Cherry Chocolate Squares—chewy coconut, shortbread base, cherries and chocolate chips. Highbush Cranberry Jelly. This post may contain affiliate links.

Highbush Cranberry Jelly

See my privacy policy for details. There is a certain satisfaction to picking Highbush cranberries yourself, not only because they are free-appealing to the cheapskate within- but also that my kids got to help me pick and then eat their just rewards. Those little turkeys were right in the bushes with me, “helping” to pick these and said little turkeys have been enjoying this jelly in their sandwiches and on toast. It really isn’t just for turkey at Thanksgiving, it has that definite taste of cranberry jelly, but is miles away from the commercial stuff. I am going to have to git out there and pick more berries, because the jelly is a daily demand on toast now. What's Going to Be Cookin' This post may contain affiliate links.

What's Going to Be Cookin'

See my privacy policy for details. One would assume that I had the meals all planned out with my mother weeks ago, the ingredients ready to go and things will run as smooth as a hot chocolate with Frangelico goes down on a cold winter’s day. Not so much. We like to fly by the seat of our pants most holidays. True, we have the turkey. The Christmas pudding is made, the kids and I did that Monday. Magpie's Favorite Recipes of 2010: Top 5 Comfort Foods. This post may contain affiliate links. See my privacy policy for details. This has been buzzing around the back of my brain like a fly trying to land on your picnic plate, circling around…looking for the best spot to start eating..or in my case, to start writing. I have too many favorites to list, in fact, if I don’t like a recipe I have tried, it actually never gets posted at all on the site.

Easter weekend is so relaxed for us, not the big to-do that Christmas is, yet still a weekend full of food ,family ,chocolate, fun, chocolate and some alcohol thrown in for good measure.

See my privacy policy for details. I am going to start building an Ark, very soon, if the rain doesn’t stop. I wonder if Edmonton is going to officially have a monsoon season declared as part of the year, because the deluge that is coming down today is atrocious. The good side to all of this is we get break in the weather to cook during the summer time. Fast Food: Sweet Thai Shrimp & Brussel Sprouts. This post may contain affiliate links. See my privacy policy for details. This is my favorite way to eat shrimp, bar none and it’s so easy it’s almost painful. All you need is shrimp and your favorite sweet chili sauce. It can’t get easier unless you don’t cook the shrimp and drink the sauce and hey, each to their own. Who am I to judge? Whether it’s raw or pre-cooked shrimp, if I’ve said it once I will say it again, rinse rinse rinse those suckers before you cook them. Chilly Day Cookin' Ideas.
