Sugar and Essence Seasoning Make Pecans Very, Very Nice

October 10, 2014

In my last post I shared with you the recipe for homemade no yeast cinnamon buns. I added spiced candied pecans to them and today I’m sharing my recipe for those pecans. Warning: These are addictive! Not only are these Spiced Candied Pecans good in cinnamon buns, but they are delicious thrown into a fresh […]

Spiced Candied Pecan Cinnamon Buns with Maple Glaze

September 13, 2014

It’s funny to me that as much as I love a warm cinnamon bun or variation thereof, I don’t bake them often.  In fact, the last time I made sweet rolls was back in 2010 with Ella.  At that time we had used the “no yeast” caramel bun recipe from King Arthur Flour and they turned out […]

Chock Full & Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

August 7, 2014

A “Girls Only Road Trip” happened this week for my daughter, grand-girls and myself.  We travelled to North Bay together to have a long over-due visit with some family members.  O.K. to be honest, one fellow was allowed to come.  Our dog Max.  Max is a quiet, well-behaved traveler and because Ron was working, we decided […]

Run, Run, As Fast As You Can!

August 1, 2014

There’s a little story that goes with why I made these cookies.  A few weeks ago my 4 year-old grand-daughter Sophie and her big sister Ella were going on a little car trip with their parents.  Their drive would take about 4 1/2 hours and as always, their Mom made sure that pencils, markers, sketch […]

Touching Bases

July 17, 2014

I’m counting my blessings and quite thankful that my little blog is not a business and a steady income generator.  I’m also pretty sure that Personal Paid Leave of Absences are not a benefit for self-employed business bloggers. After having taken the past three months off for just that purpose, I’d sure be in dire […]

Well, the long Easter weekend is almost over and I hope that everyone had a very enjoyable time with family and friends.  It was not the warmest Easter on record but given the long and very harsh Winter we had, it was just delightful to finally be able to spend time out doors without several […]

Hearts and Shamrocks for Friends and Family

March 15, 2014

Ron and I have been in Florida for six weeks now and in just over two weeks times we will be heading back home.  We are hoping that all the snow will be gone by the time we arrive back in Perth but given the Winter that we left behind for sunnier and warmer climes, […]
