The great thing about these brownies is how easy they are to make. You just put a few ingredients in the mixer, mix, bake and voila. You … [Read more...]

Easy Creamy Chicken Alfredo

chicken-alfredo-1-2

This easy creamy chicken Alfredo is a super simple yet delicious recipe to make for a restaurant quality dish, ready in 20 minutes. So creamy and cheesy! This is such a simple recipe and so delicious. Fettuccine Alfredo was invented by a Roman restaurateur called Alfredo, who became famous for serving it with a gold fork and spoon. Well I didn't serve with a gold fork and spoon, but it was fantastic nonetheless. I also wanted to add some extra protein to the dish and I added some chicken … [Read more...]

Garlic Basil Knots

garlic and basil knots-1-5

I remember a time when I never baked. Not even for such simple things as muffins. My idea of baking was to buy muffin mixes and mix them with water or whatever was required and bake them. I always liked to bake but I guess I never really knew what to bake or how to bake. Well that was a long time ago, and since then I've baked my share of muffins, bread rolls and other goodies. But even now, I would say I'm a shy baker. I guess what I mean by that, is that I'm not sure that people will like … [Read more...]

Chocolate Blueberry Jam Pull Aparts

I don't know what to call this. I've thought and thought about it. So I'm stuck with Chocolate Blueberry Jam Pull Aparts. Why? I have no idea. But who cares what it's called. It's freaking amazing! You know, there's a bakery close by here, Cob's Bakery, and every once in a while after work we'll stop by there and pick up some goodies. They have this pastry called Blueberry Teatime or Cranberry Teatime, and sometimes we'll pick up one of those. They look amazing and oh boy are they ever … [Read more...]

I love chicken wings! There I've said it. And here in my little corner of the universe, my little blog, you might find a few recipes for chicken wings, and surely you'll find lots of chicken recipes.

But what is a chicken wing recipe collection without the famous buffalo chicken wings recipe. But you know what I love more than chicken wings? I love … [Read more...]

Texas Roadhouse Rolls

texas roadhouse rolls-1

You all know how much I enjoy baking. Even in the summer, I will sacrifice and suffer through some heat, if I can enjoy warm buns fresh out of the oven. There's nothing like it. I love the smell of bread baking in the oven, it's truly a therapeutic experience for me. Of course that experience is much more appreciated when I actually bake something that turns out great, when your rolls are so delicious and so good, you have to eat them hot right out of the oven. I'm not perfect either, I've … [Read more...]

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

jalapeno-popper-grilled-cheese-sandwich-1

Since I made the screaming stuffed jalapeno poppers the other day, I had a few jalapeno peppers left. So since I've been so brave and had one of the stuffed jalapeno poppers, I thought I'd graduated to these jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwiches. I know what you're thinking, I'm really brave, but I'm special that way. But don't worry, I did remove the seeds from the peppers so a lot of the heat left with the seeds. But nonetheless there was plenty of heat left. So as before my fingers … [Read more...]

Loaded Potato Skins

loaded potato skins

I had a mojito¬†today. I was so hot I needed a cold mojito to chill me off. I don't think it worked. In fact it did the opposite. One thing I miss from living in Southern Ontario is a cold air conditioned house. People here in Calgary don't normally have air conditioners because you normally don't need one, you probably need it for a couple weeks all summer. But it doesn't help when I have the oven on. It turns my kitchen into a sauna. But it was worth it to make these unbelievable … [Read more...]

Mushroom and Chicken in Beer Sauce

mushroom and chicken in beer sauce-1-4

If you're not much of a cook or don't like cooking because it's time consuming, then you've got to try this dish. Some of these dishes don't really require a recipe, as a matter of fact I didn't use a recipe for this, but I"m listing here for you, because I love you. :) But honestly, if you don't have a lot of time, or are tired from a long day at work, trust me nothing beats a home cooked meal. I know it's easier to go buy something outside, but home cooked meals make you feel better, plus … [Read more...]

Pizza Bubble Ring

pizza monkey bread-1-5

Don't you love summer? I believe it is officially summer. If only it would stop raining here in Calgary. Soon enough. June is our rainy month and then sunshine for the rest of the summer. Winters are so long here in Calgary that all I can think of for most of the year are the months of July and August. These two months are what makes living in Calgary worth while. I really think that Calgary is the best place in the world to live in during July and August. So I guess you suffer 10 months out of … [Read more...]

Blueberry Chocolate Rolls

chocolate blueberry rolls-1-6

I love making cinnamon rolls and I make them quite often, but my husband is not a big fan of cinnamon. So I kept thinking of making these rolls with a different filling. He likes chocolate so why not chocolate. They have to be just as good if not better. I also had some blueberries so I thought the addition of blueberries would make these rolls a novelty. I was absolutely right. These rolls are scrumptious, delicious, they simply make you want to eat more and more. By the way if you don't … [Read more...]
