Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

First off I have to admit I have never had a hot cross bun before, and I am not sure why?! They are bready, and I like bready things; and they also have a lot of flavour with all the spices added, and I love spice! So since it’s Easter, I have been seeing a lot of hot cross bun recipes floating around the web, and as I checked them out, I realized I needed to make them! I changed…

Guacamole ~ Quick and Easy!

Guacamole ~ Quick and Easy!

Guacamole is crazy easy to make; I make it all the time in minutes and it tastes amazing with chips, on a burger, or stuffed in chicken. Usually I make guacamole just for chip dipping, but this batch is for my guacamole stuffed chicken! You only need five ingredients to make a tasty guacamole, and it is ready literally in minutes. But if you make it and let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours (if you can…

Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder

Corn season has come and gone but maybe you stocked up and froze a bunch of those tasty, starchy kernels for another day; another day to make corn chowder, of course!

Campfire Cooking: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread and Baked Avocados

Campfire Cooking: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread and Baked Avocados

It’s May long weekend here in Canada and I am sitting in my tent trailer camping as I write this. Not my usual camping, I have to admit. I am in a site that has power, water and sewer.

Chicken Breakfast Sausage Patties

Chicken Breakfast Sausage Patties

I want salty, fatty bacon and sausages and creamy egg yolks please! However, if I ate the way I really wanted all the time, I would be having some weight problems, so to lighten up my savoury breakfast craving, I made these chicken breakfast sausage patties! They are…
