Casseroles and Bakes with Life Made Delicious

It's that time of year again.  It's cold outside, and in some places there is even snow on the ground.  I'm a huge fan of the winter months...sweaters, long boots and food that warms you from the inside out.  I enjoy cooking...making hot meals for my family.  But during the summer, it's just too hot to turn the oven on.  Adding to the humidity of our Canadian summers just isn't an option.  So for at least 5 months of the year, my oven … [Read more...]
