A review of Khombu Ladies Nordic (Arctic) Boot

For as long as I can remember, and certainly since my first few winter seasons in Canada, I’ve been looking for THE pair of perfect winter boots.  By perfect I mean: nice looking, waterproof, good priced and really, really, really warm. Let me tell you, it’s not easy to find boots which will meet all those […]

Butternut Squash Ricotta Casserole

The idea for this casserole came while I was watching a Polish breakfast morning TV show called Dzien Dobry TVN. They were preparing something similar, without ricotta, but they went through the ingredients very quickly and I never caught the full recipe. So I came up with my own. This dish is excellent as one […]

Kale Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Honestly I think these are the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had. They are a flavorful and lighter alternative to regular mashed potatoes and will go beautifully with roast turkey or beef. They also are loaded with much more nutritional goodness. All of the veggies lead to a side dish that is rich in Iron, […]

Organic VitaDetox Juice

I’ve called this an Organic VitaDetox juice because the veggies and fruits used are a super punch of goodness, and taste great too! Beets contain betalains which are shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. Carrots provide high betacarotene and like beets they are important in the fight against cardiovascular disease. Apples give us […]

Sweet Cherry Vodka

There is a Polish tradition of preparing your own spirits and liqueurs using the bounty of fruits and herbs grown in the summer. Often my grandma would prepare a sour cherry vodka that is made with half vodka and half Spirytus. Spirytus is a rectified Polish spirit containing 95% alcohol and not only is it […]

Bacon Liver Dog Treats

Do you wonder if the treats we give our four legged friends are good for them? It seems the ingredients are more about low cost instead of what is healthy for the dog. Even when I started searching for recipes to make some treats for my Chesapeake, I was shocked how many were full of […]

Homemade Turkey Ham

Are you getting tired of buying products for your family only to find that they contain ingredients that are less than healthy for you? Processed foods are the worst offenders but deli products can also be a real problem and I do what I can, when I can, to give our girls healthy foods. This […]

Sour Cherry Jam

My great-grandma used to make this cherry jam, and grandma still does. It is 100% pure natural goodness, there isn’t even any artificial pectin added. During the making of this jam a lot of cherry juice will be produced which you can also pasteurize into a syrup the same way as the jam.  The syrup […]
