Curry Powder

I’m kinda bummed that they stopped making my favourite curry powder….:( …but I guess it forces me to create my own….to be honest, it’s almost ‘TOO MUCH TROUBLE”…but I love it so I do: Roast: 3 Tab. Cumin 1 Tab. Black Mustard Seeds 2 Tab. Coriander Seed I like to toast them separately in a […]

Thai Coconut Ice Cream

2 Cups Coconut Milk – use a good quality 1 Cup Whipping Cream (35%+) 2/3 Cup Palm Sugar (has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar – only 35!) 2 Eggs. Bring the milk, cream and sugar to a boil, slowly. Remove from heat and cool for 5-10 minutes. Temper the eggs by cracking into […]

Cheesecake (Amaretto Peanut-butter)

    I was asked to bake a special Cheesecake with Peanut butter and Almond Liquor (I used De Sorona) –Amareto~ it’s an almond Liquor that I thought was good. They requested a Graham wafer crust. For the crust : 2 1/2 Cups Ground Graham Wafers 1/2 Cup Ground Almonds 1/2 Cup Butter, melted 1/4 Cup Sugar […]

Ceilidh Shortbread

  Every Christmas-time I try to re-create the short bread I buy at the Cedar Market.  ‘So-called’ Scottish Short Bread…It’s the best I’ve ever had!  This one has quite a lot less sugar …   I say ‘so-called’ because Scottish history reports it mostly as a left over dry bread concoction (more like baked or […]

Cat Grass

  It’s the time of year when all you cat owners need to think about growing some grass for your pet. It greatly improves their digestive tract and helps prevent hair-balls.In the summer David Cuts a fresh piece of sod for Gizmo and brings it in the house (He’s strictly an indoor cat).In the winter […]

Toasted Hazelnuts (Filberts)

It’s the time of year to collect all your Hazelnuts (or buy a bag)…. Shell the nuts (or, as I did, buy a bag of shelled ones). Spread onto a cookie sheet and place into a 350 degree oven (pre-heated) for 10 minutes. When they’re ready the skins will split and you’ll notice the darker […]

Curried Chicken

This is a long and detailed process…but it’s about as simple as I can get for now… It’s about as basic as I can get for a good curry. There are lots of shortcuts but none of them really work. This makes an excellent vegetarian curry or add chicken…   Another day I will go […]

Yorkshire Pudding

I’ve been searching for years for the perfect Yorkshire recipe…..never did find it, so here’s mine… Makes 6 1 cup all-purpose Flour 1 teaspoon Salt 5 large eggs approx. 1/2 cup milk. Most of the recipes I’ve found stop about here…and most were the same ingredients. The secret is in the ‘tricks’… Blend together the […]

Green Tomato-Mustard Relish

I sure had lots of green cherry tomatoes this fall so I decided to make up a relish recipe. Once again, this recipe is very influenced by my time in Eastern Canada where relish is an important part of most meals and why not? the nutritional value is significant in these little gems! (after picking over, washing and […]

Chive Flower Vinegar

    I chose to use this wonderful vinegar from The Philippines, made from sugar cane. It’s very mild almost like Champagne vinegar but still 5% so enough acid to make pickles, etc. But you can use any vinegar. I picked about as many Chive flowers as I could find…about a dozen or so for […]
