Start with the potatoes. Peel them and cut them up into nice slices. Fry them until cooked and tender but just before they start to brown. Remove them from the frying oil, drain and remove the excess oil.

Unto us a Son is given;

And the government will be upon

His shoulder. And His name will be called

Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father,

Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government

and peaceThere will be no end, Upon the

throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and

establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward,

even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)

Honey mustard chicken roast

This marinade is awesome! The chicken comes out perfectly every time. I learned it from my mother when I was in high school, then I grew up and went away to college. And like it happens with everyone, her cooking evolved and she just stopped making it! (0_O)  icon-arrow-left my face when she told me! This was 10 years later and she had stopped making it — why? She said she moved on to better things. What?! Better things? I had such found memories of this chicken from when I was younger that it just made me a little sad.



But you know, that’s just life, we all move on to better things at some point, don’t we? 2014 is almost over and I’m already looking forward to better things in 2015. It’s a reflective time of the year.

Ice cream cake treat

If you’re looking for something easy and fun to make to treat your family or friends with this summer, look no further. Ice cream is a well loved dessert. Every time we have a family gathering, the food is eaten with enthusiasm (it’s always that good) but you always see the brightest faces when dessert is served. Most especially when it’s ice cream. I remember even as a child, when ice cream was served for dessert we all rushed to make sure we didn’t miss any.

a slice of summer goodness!

As the summer is kicking in and Christmas is just around the corner, this is a delightful treat. And the best part is it can be in any shape you want, any size you want (well, as big as you can make space for in your freezer), any number of flavours you want and it’s EASY!   Continue reading  »

Coconut pepper sauce

Here’s another one with coconut. A very simple sauce but yummy!

My husband likes fish, pan fried, deep fried, grilled. I don’t make a lot of it because I’m always at a loss on the sauce side of things. He doesn’t necessarily want a sauce but I always feel like I need to make one. Otherwise fries and ketchup end up being the default accompaniments every time.


look at all that mouth watering colour!

This sauce was an aha! moment. I was thinking about what else I could do with coconut at the time.   Continue reading  »
