This is an ethnic treat. Pashka means Easter in Russian and it used to describe both the bread and sweet cheese that is an Easter tradition. Continue reading “Pashka Easter Bread”
I can’t bring myself to make jam or real Fettuccine Alfredo… too much sugar, too much fat. I don’t have an answer for the jam but this Fettuccine Lemoncello is fabulous and guilt-free! Continue reading “Fettuccine Lemoncello”

This salad makes a satisfying meal in winter or summer. Low carb, high flavor, filling – it’s a win for me! Think nacho fixin’s on lettuce and get creative! Continue reading “Beef Taco Salad”
Our holiday crowd is very large so there are many favourite dishes that the meal would not be complete without. Many years 80% of the rutabagas are left over, 70% of the sweet potatoes, 50% of the squash…the list goes on…you get the picture. I found a way to cover off everyone’s favourites without having to make multiple root vegetable casseroles. Continue reading “Root Vegetable Timbales with Sage Brown Butter”
The Mutual Life cafeteria in Waterloo, Ontario used to serve really good, hot meals. In the beginning (like in the 1800s!) I think they were free but eventually there was a small charge… maybe 75 cents or $1.25! Continue reading “Mutual Life Cafeteria Hot Potato Salad”
I can’t decide which potato salad I like best! This is the 3rd variation of German potato salad I am posting. The base of this is the same as Warm Potato Salad with Beer– only the dressing is different!
This creamy one is really interesting as well because of the warm butter, beer mix you pour over the hot potato dice. I think you will get a lot of people asking what is in this salad because unless you have seen the recipe it is hard to put your finger on on what you are tasting.
I like this one with Schnitzel because the creaminess offsets the dryness of the schnitzel cutlet. You can keep it relatively calorie light by using light mayonnaise and light sour cream.
As you may know from my other posts my favourite new way to cook my potatoes is in my pressure cooker, 15-17 minutes for 12 whole medium size potatoes! And no mushiness! I feel like I am becoming a broken record!
Potato Salad has to be one of the best make ahead recipes there are! There are so many variation on potato salad as well. This recipe was from my German mother-in-law and it has been a family favourite for generations. Continue reading “German Potato Salad”
