Tourtière is a French Canadian double crusted meat pie that apparently goes back to the 1600s. It is a big part of French Canadian Christmas and New Year’s celebrations although it is eaten at other times as well. Continue reading “TOURTIÈRE MAISON”
These yummy little treats are a favourite among my family and friends. They give you a hit of pumpkin pie for fewer calories than a whole piece of pie would be. The cream cheese frosting is piped on so you get the salty, sweet effect again with fewer calories than a full coverage frosting.

This is a great ice cream flavour for fall! It goes well with apple pie, cobblers or crisps. This uses heavy cream and egg yolks so it is quite rich. You only need a small amount to satisfy!

I have been enjoying all kinds of fresh ‘berry baked desserts’ this summer. This Blueberry Crumble is very quick to make and a bit lighter in calories since there are no pastry crusts. The crumble on top has some oats to up the nutrition factor. It is buttery delicious and not too sweet.
If you prefer a pie version check out this Blueberry Crumble Pie that you make all in one dish!
If you need any more encouragement to enjoy this – just think of all the anti-oxidants you’ll be getting with your dessert!
You can make this all year long since frozen blueberries are readily available. You can’t beat it though when fresh blueberries come into season.
It is fantastic served warm with a bit of Cinnamon Ice Cream. ( I am all about Cinnamon Ice Cream this month!)
August to me means peaches and tomatoes! This is the perfect time to make peach pie. Peach pie is definitely in the running to be my favourite pie. I associate apple pie with Fall, pumpkin pie with Thanksgiving and peach pie with August. Continue reading “August Peach Pie with Cinnamon Ice Cream”
These veal shells were inspired by a lunch my brother served one New Year’s day many years ago. He made it with manicotti but I find Jumbo Shells easier to stuff. The signature seasonings and Vermouth/Marsala are all mine! I think the combination of the veal, spirits, tomatoes and spices qualify for a umami bomb!
