R is for Rocky Roads Travel Mix {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

There is nothing like cruising down the road with the windows rolled down and a warm breeze blowing through your hair. Your favorite tunes playing on the radio and the sunshine warming your arm as it lays along your driver’s door…wait…what warm breezes? Fall is totally creeping into the air and the tunes coming from the radio are likely whatever…

Q is for Quick and Easy Quesadilla {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

If there is one thing our grandson loves it’s a yummy quesadilla so I had no doubt this would be my recipe for the letter Q. We all love Mexican food so when EJ moved up from eating baby food and was looking for something on the menu at our favorite restaurant, a cheese quesadilla was the sensible choice. A…

P is for Pasta Salad

Summer seems to have passed by so quickly this year, it’s hard to believe we are heading into the Labour Day long weekend already! In honour of this last barbecue season of summer I thought I’d share my daughter’s favorite pasta salad. She got the recipe several years ago from a friend in Nova Scotia and has added her own…

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)…
