Warm and Sweet Apple Crisp, Made Better with Cool Whip

I live in the Annapolis Valley, the heart of Nova Scotia and the home of millions of apple trees.  Every autumn the apples come in season and pies, crisps and cobblers are on the menu in just about every kitchen.  In the Valley, we know apples. Each fall I head to my favorite market.  I try my best to buy my produce direct from the farmers when ever I can.  Most of the apples I buy are for eating whole, uncooked.  But when I know I'm going to … [Read more...]

Fruit and Nut Peanut Butter Snack Bites

I am grateful that my kids get to enjoy that same snacking ease after a long day at school, but we … [Read more...]

When Life Gives You Lemons…. #WhatsCooking

Spring is here! I think. They tell me that Easter is this weekend.  The stores are filled with tulips and daffodils...though my garden is showing no signs of life.  Quite frankly it's still frozen solid, with a four foot layer of snow atop it.  I think mother nature has here clock all messed up.  Christmas was green, and mild...spring like really.  Easter...well, our Easter will once again be white.
