Want to sell your house? Have these baking during your open house and it's a slam dunk! The smell that was flooding the kitchen was heavenly. The end product lived up to expectations! These delicious and pretty breakfast treats are worth every bit of "little" effort you'll put into them. Super easy to whip up.
It's picking season! Besides eating them right off the bush, there are so many nice things you can do with strawberries. It's a tradition in our home to make "really" fresh pies, when fresh picked fruit is available.
This pie is not difficult to make, and yes you can cheat a little and buy a single pie crust if you like. It's best eaten the day it's made, and in fact the day the berries are picked. When you cut your pieces they won't come out looking as pretty as as pies made with jello or gellatin, but it doesn't get any fresher or purer than this! I make fresh pies with strawberries, blueberries and peaches!
Rhubarb growing in the backyard was all the excuse I needed to bake up this easy and delicious cake. I love the tartness of rhubarb that comes through the sweet caramel notes produced by the brown sugar and butter mixture.
Weekends in our house means pancakes and bacon are usually on the menu. Ever since we discovered the difference a little sour cream makes, pancakes have become our weekend favourite breakfast/brunch food of choice.
We have a variety of preferences from raspberry, to chocolate chip, to blueberry, banana or a mixture of raspberry and chocolate chip, the one thing that never changes is the syrup. Pure Maple Syrup is a must!
No it's not just pulled pork. It's pulled pork with super easy to make but over the top delicious, Apple Coleslaw. This one is totally worth it, and you'll make it over and over again.
A little spice rub, a pour over of a tasty liquid combination and six hours later you end up with pork that's falling off the bone. A couple of forks and presto, pulled pork!
Add some BBQ sauce and some hot sauce if you like, top it with the Apple Coleslaw and I dare you to try and eat just one.

My local grocer had blackberries on sale that inspired me to make this very delicious dessert. If you're looking for a light and tasty dessert that has a beautiful presentation, this is it! There are a few steps to this recipe, but they aren't complicated. This one is well worth attempting. You just might find yourself making it over and over again.
If you have a Kitchen Aid you'll have no trouble whipping up the meringue base for this dessert. Just be sure to spread it out over parchment paper, so it doesn't stick. Make your meringue and once cooled spread with your whipped cream mixture, and then top with your Blackberry syrup.
My husband Jeff has been whipping up nachos for a few years now. They just seem to get better and better. If you have a rotisserie chicken and don't know what to do with the leftovers, problem solved: Jeff's Sweet Chicken Nachos. It's what he does with the chicken that takes it over the top.
Pinterest is all about pictures, so every once in a while you see a picture of something you want to make and you hope that it turns out "exactly" like the picture. You have lots of experience and trust your instincts. While you're trusting your instincts you're also wondering if you've really got it right, or if somehow you've been duped. You take the plunge and the end result is almost the twin of it's Pinned picture. Yeah it worked. It turned out the way it "advertised" itself to turn out. The reality is it almost always does, as long as you know a little something about cooking and baking. And if you don't, that's OK too. Stick with me and I'll do my best to help you choose recipes that give you the result you're looking for.
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
