Happy Monday! What do you think of that name for a cookie?  Clever?  I think so…. but whatever name you put on these morsels of crunch doesn’t really matter.  Last week, one evening Cooking junior and I whipped up a batch of these for so called “dessert”.  We wanted something easy and quick so we [...]


A Mother’s Day Crepe…

by zesty on May 14, 2012 · 4 comments

Stuffed with nutella. Topped with fresh berries. Served in bed. I know, I know but I cannot take all the credit for this one.  I had a little help from Cooking junior preparing and delivering this masterpiece. Results were well received. I used a crepe mix from Stonewall kitchen to put them together. Pretty simple. [...]


Good Monday to you. I have a special treat for you today.  A reader of Cooking wanted to be featured for one of his favorite smoothies.  I thought it was a neat idea to feature you guys and see what you make in your own kitchens.  So please enjoy today’s delicious take on a berry [...]

Brrrrrrrrrrr…  It is -22 degrees Celsius as I write this post.  Sitting with my warm fuzz socks, fireplace blasting, and fingers just clicking on the keyboard.  Today is Monday yet again and as I listened on the radio – it is chilly!

Good day to you!  Sometimes dinners can be rushed and you need a quick and easy solution but still keep the food “somewhat” healthy.  Today’s feature is dead easy and if I might add quite tasty.  I might be biased as I love salmon – especially fresh Atlantic salmon. However, any salmon will work and [...]
