Chatelaine’s 30 Days of Delicious, Dinner-in-a-Bowl Salads

So, I ran into the store to get tomatoes, and I came out with this magazine. It's been quite a while since I bought a magazine on impulse. But dang, those salads looked amazing! And there were 30 of them, each with their own glossy, food porn, full-page photo. It was difficult deciding where to… Continue reading Chatelaine’s 30 Days of Delicious, Dinner-in-a-Bowl Salads

Friday Night Pizza (aka ‘Hello Donna’)

I have a theory that Friday evenings are Universal Pizza Nights. At least that's been the case for me...even when I lived in Beijing. Instead of always ordering pizza (as I once did), Richard and I now include various homemade (or at least home assembled) versions. Some of our favourite pizza ingredients Richard doesn't mind… Continue reading Friday Night Pizza (aka ‘Hello Donna’)

What’s On Your Plate – Battle Cranberry-Sausage Spaghetti

Several months ago, Frank from Beach Walk Reflections left a comment suggesting I try Battle Cranberry Sausage Spaghetti. This recipe sounded intriguing.

Title: The Little Cafe by the Lake

Author: Joanne Tracey

Genre: Contemporary Romance Plus

What’s It About? I am a huge fan of Jo Tracey’s books. This has been my favourite one so far. If you are looking for a break filled with fun, friendship, food…and some sultry, fiercely independent characters, this book is for you. As a bonus, numerous mouth-watering recipes are included.

How Did You Hear About It? I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of this book (which was just released on November 4, 2021).

Closing Comments: As many of the main characters in this novel also appeared in ‘Happy Ever After’ and ‘Wish You Were Here,’ this reading felt like catching up with old friends. If you haven’t yet read any of Jo Tracey’s books, I highly recommend them. Although this book is part of a series, it can also easily…

Deny it as I may, the Northern Hemisphere has firmly slid into autumn. With that, I've found myself craving casual, carefree, comfort foods that are quick and painless to prepare. These longings don't end at the main course but include desserts (especially ones that are company-impressive, without the drama). Enter 3-Step Mini Cheesecakes. Topped with… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate – October – Mini-Cheesecakes
