IMG_3443

Happy Thanksgiving! A day late. I’m posting a few pictures of our non-traditional thanksgiving feast and then I’ll get back to my Black Friday shopping from the comfort of my couch. =) These pumpkin rolls are soft, flavorful and delicious this time of the year. The recipe comes with all sorts of sentimental memories of my dear grandma in the kitchen. These were her specialty.

Cranberry-Pear Galette {with a hint of ginger}

I have a whole bucket-list of recipes in my mind that I want to try someday. So I’m knocking them off one by one. Galettes (or Rustic Tarts as some people call them) have always fascinated me and I’ve been wanting to try them for a long time. Funny thing is, I discovered its kind of like a pie baked on a flat sheet instead of a round plate. I’ve never been very confident in my pie making abilities so I totally fell in love with these “rustic” tarts, because they don’t have to look perfect. In fact, they are not supposed to look perfect! Thats one of the things I love about them. You get all the flavors of a pie including a flaky crust without all the tedious things like trimming the edges just perfect.

White Chicken Enchiladas

Let’s talk about baby meals. And how good they are. And the variety of food you get to eat without having to step into the kitchen. Or smell it all day. Yup! I plan to get those in exactly 7 months and 3 weeks. Haha. Oh but what I was really gonna say is, I was able to indulge on Janelle’s leftover baby meals when I went to visit little Chloe. They were treated swell. One day, I woke up feeling quite queasy and couldn’t stomach breakfast (I’ll spare the details!) so by the time lunch came around at Janelle, I felt like I could eat a cow. Sharon Waldner had brought her a meal the night before and thank God! There were leftovers. I could talk to you a long time about how delicious those Enchiladas were. Some of the best I’ve ever had. I loved the cheesy white sauce versus the red sauce that normally comes with enchiladas. They were so good that when I told some ladies about them at the hockey game that evening, they instantly guessed that I was pregnant. I didn’t think it very unusual for me to talk about good food but they said I was drooling (please don’t believe that!).  Continue reading “White Chicken Enchiladas”

I first had this amazing Layered Taco Dip at my friend Crystal’s house on a cozy Sunday evening visit. I could not stop eating. It was so good. So I asked for the recipe. A few weeks later, her sister Charlene sent these pictures and recipe for the blog. I was delighted as it should be spread far and wide.  Continue reading “Layered Taco Dip {THM}”
