Ravioli & Sausage Lasagna

Ravioli Lasagna

Have you been watching any Olympics?  I hate the feeling of having the TV on during the day, but I can’t help but love the feats of strength and skill on constant display.  I just sit there and exclaim about the LEGS, the ARMS, the CORE STRENGTH!  The ski jumpers who can basically lay parallel […]

Cookie Dough Truffle Bars: No-Bake Eggless Cookie Dough topped with chocolate, the perfect way to satisfy any cookie dough craving!

Do you ever watch Dragon’s Den or Shark Tank?  I’m not really a TV watcher, but I love those shows.  I tend to think most things have already been invented, and then along comes someone with a brilliant, and usually simple, invention or solution of some sort that makes me think, “Now why didn’t I […]

I love sugar cookies intensely.  Sadly, I feel almost as intensely about my dislike of rolling out dough and cutting shapes and decorating individual cookies.  I have three littles, so they’re either helping (or hindering) me, or I’m trying to get something done by myself as quickly as possible.  Also, they have a thing for sprinkles […]

I have a constant internal battle going on. I just can’t decide what I like better, sweet or salty.  As much as I love my sweets, salty snacks like nachos or hot cheesy dips with accompanying chips or hefty sourdough bread generally hold the number one spot in my heart. Funnily enough, I almost never […]

Is there anything better than a cake just begging for a giant dollop of cream cheese icing? Spread it all over…and I just want to dive in face first. This cake was my first foray into pumpkin this season, and, just when I thought I had enough pumpkin recipes to love, this one came along […]

Saturday Sweets: Apple Crumble Pizza

Apple Crumble Fruit Pizza

Well, it’s early in the season (in fact, the season is being stinkin’ elusive), but I feel confident declaring this my favourite new fall dessert.  You all know how much I love my apple crumble, and I stand by my bold claim that it is the best ever, but this whole wheat apple crumble pizza? […]
