M is for Mexican Fried Ice Cream {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

I had wonderful plans to make a batch of our favorite Mexican Fried Ice Cream dessert this week but Mother Nature had other ideas. Since we don’t have air conditioning and this week hit record high temperatures in southern Alberta (our thermometer said 39°C – 102°F) there was no way I was going to manage to have little hands help…

L is for Loveless Cafe Creamed Corn {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

Continuing along in the alphabet I can hardly believe we are at the Letter L already! It seems as though I had just begun this series with my gramma’s recipe for All-Bran Muffins. But here we are almost halfway through (and getting ever closer to some very difficult letters). For the Letter L, I am returning to one of my…

J is for Jessica…and her sauce for ham! {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

Okay, so this week isn’t technically a J recipe but it is what we call this simple and delicious mustard sauce for ham. Our girls tried it at her house one night and they were sold. It’s been referred to as Jessica’s ham sauce ever since. Even Jess herself can’t remember where she got the recipe from, just that she…

I is for Idaho Potato Pancakes – Blogging Through the Alphabet

Maybe it’s because I’m Irish…or perhaps it’s because I married a fellow whose family has deep roots in Prince Edward Island…or perhaps I just love potatoes because they are so versatile and inexpensive. Whatever the reason, for the second week in a row I am featuring pomme de terre (if I use their French name they sound fancier don’t they)…

H is for Hash Brown Casserole {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

Type hash brown casserole into any search engine and you will likely come up with hundreds of recipes for this simple yet delicious dish. I always think of this as a southern dish since my favorite spots to enjoy it are cafes and restaurants that feature down-home southern-style menus. The Loveless Cafe kindly shares their Hashbrown Casserole recipe on their…

G is for Griddle Cakes at the Calgary Stampede! (Blogging Through the Alphabet)

As I was looking through my copy of the Five Roses Cookbook (my gramma’s favorite) looking for a recipe that began with a G, I came across the page for Griddle Cakes and thought how perfect since we are heading into pancake breakfast season here in Calgary (aka Stampede Week). In a short 16 days, the Calgary Stampede will kick…

F is for Fried Chicken a la Antonio {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

Even though F is for Fried Chicken a la Antonio, trust me, this man’s fried chicken is straight A’s at a barbecue or hockey viewing party! It’s awesome to have friends that no matter how long you haven’t seen each other when you walk through their door it’s just like you saw them yesterday. We’ve been blessed with friends like…

E is for English Muffin Pizzas {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

With all of our travelling the past couple of weeks, I haven’t had a lot of time for cooking at home so we’ve been thinking of recipes that are easy to prepare at home or on the road. This week we decided on English Muffin Pizzas. These make terrific snacks or fun lunchtime sandwich replacements and even little kids can…

D is for Deviled Eggs {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

What family picnic or event is complete without a pretty plate of deviled eggs? Okay, maybe that’s just my family but we love to bring out our special cut glass plate with the little divots for each egg half. For years I would fill a pot with a dozen eggs then cover them with cold tap water before bringing them…
