Creamy Lime Squares

A friend of mine posted a list of St. Patrick’s Day recipes, and when I came across these squares I had to try them out. And let me tell you, they DO NOT disappoint, in the tart lime flavour department…omnomnom!! They were super easy to make, as it was just an adaptation, from a lemon square recipe. And it only took about an hour, from start to finish. I didn’t dust the top with icing sugar, but you can definitely go that route for guests, if you decide to try this recipe out 🙂

Jalapeno Popper Roll Ups and Creamy Apple Dessert

As part of our Super Bowl Sunday spread, I decided to make something new, to see how it tastes. I perused the interweebs, and found this recipe, that caught my eye. My hubby and I are fans of Jalapeno Poppers, so we thought we’d give this one a go. It’s a definitely a twist on the original, but was easy to make, and not bad. The recipe says it makes 16 servings, but I have at least another batch worth, of the filling left. So for us, it actually makes twice as much, which we’ll make at another time. Definitely great for a crowd though, since it makes so much!!

I was also looking to make a new dessert, so when I came across this Creamy Apple Dessert recipe, I wanted to give it a try!! It was definitely a hit with us, and even my parents. It tastes like an apple cheesecake, so if you’re into that combo, you’ll like it too. This recipe would be even better with cherry pie filling, which is what I’ll be trying next time for sure!! I may actually take the time, to make the filling from scratch, to lessen the sugar content. Will be sure to make this one again soon.

Mmm…Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough Ice Cream


We get these ‘Promo Packs’, at one of our local grocery stores, once in awhile. We love these, because they’re only $1.00. I’m all for cheap and yummy ice cream. We’ve also bought, the Smarties ice cream ‘Promo Pack’, which is another favourite…omnomnom.

Cannoli From Lazar Bakery in Mississauga

There’s nothing like, having a nice cup of tea and sharing a cannoli, with the one you love!! Lazar Bakery, is a wonderful place, specializing in Portuguese/Italian groceries. They have a vast pastry and cake section, which is THE reason, why we go there only once in a while LOL This time around we got a large cannoli (our usual), as well as a strawberry and coconut tart, which we haven’t had yet. They also have, a great hot table in the back, with a lot of comfort food. If you’re ever in Mississauga, make sure to make a stop, at Lazar Bakery. You won’t be disappointed!!

Beer…Dip…Dessert…The Best Parts of Super Bowl 2014!!

As you all know by now, the Super Bowl, was a pretty one sided and boring game…at least to me and my hubby!! But thankfully, we had some good beer and food, to make up for it. We came across this English beer called Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer. The description of the flavour is what caught my eye, with notes of toffee and vanilla. It was darker then regular, but not as dark as others, so it’s a good in between flavour profile. We liked it, and will have this again sometime 🙂

I gave another Buffalo Chicken Dip a try this year, for the Super Bowl, and it turned out better then the last one. It may have been that I subbed flaked turkey, and ranch dressing, instead of blue cheese? Yes it was still pretty salty, but the flavour was just better. I halved the recipe, and it made enough for 2 medium ramekins, so we have another serving we can heat up and enjoy. Goes great with cut veggies, crackers or chips of your choice.

I had 2 Mutsu/Crispin apples, that were very much past their prime, since we picked them back in October LOL So, I looked up some recipes of what to make with them, and when I came across this simple apple crisp recipe – I knew I wanted to make it. The 2 apples made exactly 1 serving for each of us, so we ended up having it as our dessert on Sunday night. It was very yummy!! Though a bit sweet, since this recipe is more geared towards, a more tart apple. Ours were quite sweet, so if I use granny smith’s next time, it’ll be perfect. Definitely serve this with a half scoop of ice cream…it’s the only way we eat it!!
