A Twist on Tortilla Soup

One of the classic dishes you’ll often find in Mexico is tortilla soup. There are a multitude of versions of this dish. We’ve had it made only with broth and served with toppings like avocados and tortilla strips. We’ve had a version with chicken in it, and a version with beef. I decided to try... Continue Reading →

Chilled avocado soup

This recent hot spell has me thinking about cool and refreshing dishes and this soup is at the top of the list. This is a really easy dish to make, and brings together the smoothness of avocados and limes, the spicy flavour of a jalapeño pepper and the zesty taste of cumin and chili powder....

A Day On The Lake

Those who love to fish, love it a lot. Some love it so much, they build a business around it. That's true of our neighbours, Tom and Dorothy, who have built the guiding business Sask Landing Fishing Adventures. They take customers on tours and fishing expeditions on Lake Diefenbaker, and we were fortunate to be... Continue Reading →

“Impossible” Cheeseburger Pie

A friend's daughter recently graduated from high school, and the friend asked for recipes for her "college survival kit." I dug out this recipe of my mother's because it's an easy and tasty supper dish, and great for a student because it would give her several portions at a reasonable cost. The Bisquick holds the...

From raising funds, shopping for necessities, distributing, cooking, and visiting with the seniors, they have each stepped up to support their community.... Continue Reading →

Starting the day off right

There are many resources expounding the benefits of a morning routine. These include working out first thing, practicing meditation or yoga, journaling. Don’t check emails, take time for yourself, make your coffee (that’s mine) …the list goes on. Do the same thing every morning and you will see benefits. The reality is, everybody is different...

Doukhobor Borscht

There’s something special about homemade soup, especially when it’s made with fresh garden vegetables. My friend Cheryl introduced me to this variation on borscht that I had never experienced before. She made such a delicious batch, I had to get the recipe and try it at home. I’m not sure my version was as good... Continue Reading →

50 years…wiser?

It won't be long now until I  pass what is considered a major milestone – turning 50 years old. It’s kind of unreal to think that I am that old…that in fact I likely have fewer days in front of me than behind me. It doesn’t feel any different, actually, other than it hurts when...
