The Harry Potter Birthday Party

See my privacy policy for details. Ah. It came, went and was conquered. What a lot of fun my son’s 8th birthday party was. We had, of course, a Harry Potter themed party. We had a large amount of rowdy, rambunctious children attend, ranging in age from 5-9, and a great time was had by all. We ate Deathly Hallows cookies. I actually think I was more excited than my son when I found these Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. Well, my friends, Jelly Belly produces a Harry Potter version and thanks to Carol’s Sweets here in Edmonton I had a stash of these for a party game.

I sat the kids in a circle and pulled out a box of these. A word to the wise. Vomit tastes exactly like vomit. Look at all these flavors! Pure awesome. Hedwig made an appearance. As did the sorting hat. And here comes the work of art, the labor of love, the masterpiece of fondant-which I still hate- chocolate cake and icing.

Ta-da! It took me SO LONG. Ginger Cream Christmas Cookies-The Kitchen Magpie. This post may contain affiliate links.

Ginger Cream Christmas Cookies-The Kitchen Magpie

See my privacy policy for details. Ginger cream Christmas cookies, or molasses cream cookies are a Grandma Cookies.

Mint M&M Fudge

See my privacy policy for details. I finally got around to using a bag of Mint M&M’s instead of snacking on them It’s very unfortunate they come in such small bags. I think. Perhaps it’s better they come only in these small bags, less snacking and more baking happens. Or at least that is what I am going to tell myself. This is the easiest fudge ever, I have been making one version or another for years.

This is the Canadian measurement conversion that I have come up with, the original recipes are all American, who in case you didn’t know, have 14 oz cans of condensed milk, which is 414 ml. We generally have 300ml cans here in Canada. Mint M&M Fudge. Pineapple Slice. This post may contain affiliate links.

Pineapple Slice

See my privacy policy for details. This pineapple slice is another one of my grandma’s recipes, and one of my favorites. Oh, fine, they are all my favorites. It’s a given. This is a light, airy, just sweet enough dessert that now has taken top place in my husbands heart over the old one, cherry cha-cha, another family classic. How to Make Pineapple Slice She used to put 2 raw eggs in the middle layer, not something I recommend for a family-with-young-kids recipe, but I am sure, nay, positive I ate this as a child and well, obviously never croaked, but never got sick either. Ingredients: Crust: 2 1/2 cups graham crumbs (better if you make them yourself) 1/2 cup of margarine Middle layer: 2 cups of icing sugar 1/2 cup of margarine 1/2 cup of cream cheese (or 2 eggs, or pasteurized eggs from the carton) Topping: 1 cup of whipped cream 1 large can pineapple ( 20 ounces) Melt the margarine and combine the first ingredients for the crust.

Rolo Cookies

See my privacy policy for details. These Rolo cookies have been around since the 1980’s, minimum.

Strawberry Pretzel Salad / Dessert

See my privacy policy for details. This Strawberry Pretzel Salad / Dessert came about from my baking with strawberry jello – I don’t bake with strawberry Jello often, but when I do, it’s because I’m throwing a 70’s theme party! What else would fit in other than a dessert with Jello? Quickie Homemade Cinnamon Rolls. This post may contain affiliate links. See my privacy policy for details. This recipe for Quickie Homemade Cinnamon Rolls is one that I have used more times than I can count for a last-minute brunch or breakfast sweet treat. My mom used to make this all the time when we were kids, instead of a yeast dough you use a quick baking powder bread dough to make some fast and easy cinnamon rolls. I think the first place this appeared was in Company’s Coming, but like all recipes it’s been around longer than those cookbooks have been.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew. This post may contain affiliate links. See my privacy policy for details. What I loved about this slow cooker chicken stew is that you only need enough chicken say, from leftovers, and the rest is mainly vegetables. Indeed, I had roast chicken leftover and we were a little tired of soup. It’s funny how one can trick their mind when eating something because really, this really is just a soup with less liquid and more vegetables. Christmas Candy Cane Cookies.
