Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread

I found an awesome sounding Raisin/Cinnamon bread recipe at tideandthyme.com and couldn’t wait to try it!


Raisin/Cinnamon bread has always been Dillon’s favourite bread.  I have literally seen him sit with a fresh loaf and practically inhale the whole thing.  As I was making this, he kept coming upstairs and telling me how good the bread smelled while it was baking, and oh yes, he would take the whole pan lol!
I thought this would be great toasted but I am also going to keep a loaf to make weekend French Toast!

Cream of Broccoli & Asiago Soup

Although we had to postpone our visit again due to weather to the coming weekend, I still made another pot of soup for when Kim and family were coming up last weekend.  I did freeze it, well most of it because Chris wanted a bowl lol, so that I would still have it to simply reheat for this weekend’s visit because once I told Kim what kind of soup I had made, her response was a resounding Yummmmmmm lol! Below is the recipe for this soup… if you love broccoli cheese soup, this is definitely a recipe you will want to try!

Salsa for our Christmas Preserve Baskets

I had fully intended to make this salsa in the summer when I had easy access to fresh tomatoes. You know what they say about good intentions??? Well, my intention was to make it in the summer but ended up being the week before Christmas and I had to use canned, diced tomatoes instead of fresh. It still turned out well but would have been even better with fresh! This salsa would make for a great snack with your favourite tortilla chips or even crackers, or used in whatever recipe you have that calls for salsa.

Christmas Leftover Poutine 

We hope everyone had a great Christmas! I thought I would repost this recipe/directions to make Poutine with leftover turkey and the fixings.  It is a great Boxing Day meal and is very easy to make.  It is also a great way to use up any leftovers you might have !

Crescent Roll Chicken Pot Pie

I was at a real loss as to what I was going to make for dinner on Sunday.  I knew I had thawed some chicken breasts but didn’t want to make the “same old thing.” I then remembered I also bought 2 tubes of crescent rolls and that made me thing of making a chicken pot pie with the two of them.

The “Boys” both loved it and totally cleaned their plate…. and again… there was enough leftover to freeze for another night, adding to my stash of Freezer Meals!

Gingerbread Pudding Cake

I know it’s kind of early for anything gingerbread, but I just couldn’t help myself lol!  I saw a recipe online and “doctored it up” to work with what I had on hand.

Chris said it sort of reminded him of Christmas pudding and he loved it!  And I have to say the smell of it baking was almost sinful and definitely reminiscent of the upcoming holiday season!

Triple Threat Pork Tenderloin

Lol… I didn’t know what else to call it that wouldn’t end up being a paragraph in name…. pork tenderloin rubbed with spices and brown sugar, rolled in bacon and then smothered in a maple mustard sauce.  Isn’t that a mouthful?  I think the title I decided on works just fine!

I really couldn’t decided which way I wanted to cook the pork tenderloin for dinner the other night so I decided to combine a few different ways and the end result was a very flavourful pork tenderloin that even passed the Chris Chocolate Milk test lol!
