Russian Salad

This recipe for Russian Salad was submitted by my Mom. It is a fantastic twist to a regular jello salad. The flavours are really great, and the sour cream layer  doesn’t make it sour, but rather, makes it very creamy. Delicious!

Fresh Tomato Soup

We’ve now pulled the tomato plants in the garden. Frost set in last night, and we didn’t want to bother with covering them to prevent them from freezing. But, we did get our fair share of tomatoes from them before pulling them. This recipe is one of the examples of what we’ve done with them. […]

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

This fresh salsa is so delicious, and so simple to make too. I’ve made it 4 times already, and loved it each and every time! The mango adds a nice sweet element, that offsets the heat of the jalapeno pepper perfectly. The lime juice in the dressing adds a nice tang as well. All in […]
