Gluten Free Old Fashioned Doughnuts

Yes folk, that’s right, gluten free old fashioned doughnuts! These Old Fashioned Doughnuts were actually really simple to make, and they tasted just like the donuts that you get fresh at the summer fairs, all covered in a cinnamon-sugar coating. I bought myself a donut cutter the other day when we were in the city. […]

Black Bean and Corn Salad

I have been playing around with different salads this summer. They are great because they can be made ahead, which makes them great to take to a barbecue or even camping. I’ve never really had a black bean salad before, but decided to give it a try this summer. I tried one recipe, and was […]

Saskatoon Cheesecake Ice Cream

This is another ice cream recipe that I just came up with while playing around in the kitchen.

I didn’t include graham wafer crumbs, […]

It’s summer here. In summer it’s great to be able to throw together a salad, top it with some grilled meat & have that as your main course. They are great because they can be made ahead and transported to picnics or barbecues too. There is so much fresh fruit & vegetables available right now, […]

Slow Cooker Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I really love a good baked potato when I have a BBQ. However, more often than not, I forget to start the potatoes early enough. Why is it that barbecued meat takes minutes (usually), and the potatoes to go with the meat, take an hour? Instead of doing the potatoes on the grill, I usually […]
