T is for Turkey and Giving Thanks {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

OK, a couple of things about this post, I'm very late posting it and it's about one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. If you are Canadian this will seem timely since we celebrate Thanksgiving on the first Monday in October each year (this often coincides with my birthday weekend so that may be part of… Continue reading T is for Turkey and Giving Thanks {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

S is for Shortbread {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

We've been traveling again this week and I am super late with my Blogging Through the Alphabet post! My #3 daughter helped me out by baking some shortbread cookies and sending me the picture. I can just taste them now, buttery, melting on my tongue and flavored with almond extract. She loves this recipe from… Continue reading S is for Shortbread {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

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

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

I'm sharing one that my mom used to make when we… Continue reading Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

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

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

K is for Krispy Rice and Special K ~ Blogging Through the Alphabet

I had great plans for K. It's the first letter of my name. I love the letter K, it looks so lovely as a monogram on a mug or carry-bag. I had this terrific idea to make an easy Key Lime Pie (it's frozen and so nice for dessert on a hot summer's day. But… Continue reading K is for Krispy Rice and Special K ~ Blogging Through the Alphabet
