This recipe is a bit of a treasured one in my family. We bring it out at Christmas every year, and for good reason – these little cookies are rich and decadent, but also so light and airy that it’s far too easy to eat the whole pan. We found it in a newspaper years ago – Betty Harrison’s Whipped Shortbread Cookies. You need to find out why these are so beloved… Click on through to find out how to make them!

Pumpkin Custard Bake

I’m going to be the first to admit, I’ve never been huge on the whole pumpkin spice thing. BUT this is also coming from a girl who didn’t start eating pumpkin pie until she was 23 years old, so you’ll have to forgive me. As penance, what I offer you today is a breakfast of epic fall proportions. Glorious meal preparations. Pumpkin, spicy cinnamon, and a velvety smooth texture – what else do you want from me?! Click through to bake this filling masterpiece with me.

Food is essential for life and it is expensive, the cost of food has risen by ridiculous amounts in the past year in Canada…see evidence here, here, here AND here.

Beer Steamed Mussels

27987136405_d377a07940_h

Let me start off by saying that I love mussels pretty much any way. I spent my summers as a kid living on the east coast, picking mussels and digging clams at low tide, and after soaking them in a bucket of oatmeal water, rinsing them, and steaming them in some water, I devoured them with vinegar and/or butter. Simplicity at its finest. But as you might have guessed, this is a little fancier, a little more of a luxury dish. And delicious in an oh-so-fancy way. Click on through to find out how to make these beautiful morsels! Continue reading “Beer Steamed Mussels”
