Cheese & Bacon Jam Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Ever since I made this bacon jam, I’ve been kind of obsessed with it. It basically takes anything you would eat and makes it more spectacular than you could even know.

Creamy Nacho Potato Soup

You all have those days when we’re making something we think is going to be the best thing we’ve ever eaten, and it turns out to be a big flop. You also have those days when you’re making something you think is going to be mediocre and it turns out way better than you expected. […]

Nanaimo Fudge Brownies

Many of you will remember I posted this Nanaimo Layer Cake a while back, which was my entry for the Canadian Lentils competition. If you read anything I write, you might even remember that I made a back-up dessert, just in case my cake didn’t turn out. Enter the Nanaimo Fudge Brownies. I knew I […]
