Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is The Best chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had. I have made dozens of choc chip recipes with all sorts of variations but this is the hands down winner! Even since I’ve found this recipe, I have still ventured off to try various combos of double chocolate, oatmeal etc. but none are better than this. Oven at 350 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1 cup granulated sugar 2 large egg, at room temperature 2 tsp vanilla extract 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2...

Caramal Pear Butter

Wow – you know what this would be good on, everything – these are the exact words my husband spoke after trying this concoction. It all started when our next door neighbor left a large bag of pears (straight from her backyard) on our front step. We ate a few, but there were so many and fruit flies were gathering fast so I put the entire bag in the fridge. When the space was needed, I decided to make sweet pear butter. I’ve made apple sauce many times and this is much the same process. I begin...

Pork Tenderloin with Maple and Pear

This was an excellent dinner that I’ll surely be making again. The ingredients pair together nicely and the tender meat was thoroughly enjoyed by my toothless baby. My in-laws were here for dinner and while they are not picky, I do like to fancy-it-up. The prep was easy with chunky veg and fruit and everything can be started and finished in the same pan. I served this dish with a summer salad and rice, but roasted potatoes would also be perfect! You’ll need: pork tenderloin, about 1 lb (I bought from...

Quinoa and Apple Sausage

Today I was at the butcher to buy ground beef and saw Apple Sausages (Bob’s Butcher). With tacos in mind for dinner, I quickly rethought my plan to include these delicious looking sausages. I decided to BBQ sausages, saute veg and add them to quinoa. Here we go… Throw the sausages on the Barbie (4) and in the meantime, cook the quinoa. 1 cup raw quinoa cooked in 2 cups chicken broth While that is cooking, dice and saute in coconut oil: 1 small yellow pepper 1 small orange pepper broccoli 1 large...

Caramel Popcorn

I was inspired to make this because… Last week I brought home the Chicago Mix popcorn (sweet and salty) from Costco but told my husband he could not open it until company comes (really, it is a very big bag)! So, I thought I’d make some for us Tonight!!  I had two bags of popcorn nearing their expiry date. If I had more popcorn, I probably would have doubled the recipe. This popcorn is very easy to eat! Here is what you need: 2 bags of popped popcorn 1/2 cup butter 1 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup corn...

sweet layer bar – copy cat

Today I had lunch with my mom and baby Lou at one of my favorite spots. I had an interesting and very delicious Dill Pickle soup. Before heading out, I got a dessert bar they called a Holly Bar. It was fresh out of the oven, looked awesome and tasted great. However, at $4.25 for a square, I thought I should be making this myself! I must say, that my bar was even better. Are you craving chocolate with a crunch and toffee flavor? Try this! I should warn that I whipped this up free hand – no measuring, however...
