looks like I missed a fun cocktail hour-great list, Gitano. Lisa just make the dish and photo it then sneak in bread while you are eating it, no one will be the wiser. Enjoy your weekend at the cottage, we are going to a ski doo show today. No snow yet, but RNGrampa has an itchy throttle finger and wants to look at a new ski doo....ugh

Don, the challenge is for everyone to makeup their own recipe, they can't use yours. You add it as a personal recipe and then gitano posts it on the final blog.

About Me
I am a Real Estate Agent (visit www.deborahlsykes.com), A Mom to two grown kids, A Wife and I love to collect recipes! I have so many creative outlets at the moment...it is a wonder I have time to work :) I knit all kinds of things, I design, create and sew custom-made Aprons, Totes & Vacation Handbags ~ for further info, please visit http://www.lagitanacrafts.com, I also JUST (Oct/13) purchased a loom and am learning how to weave AND I blog my heart out at www.ournorthernhomestead.com. I used to blog here on AR but felt the need to compile everything into one site, cooking, sewing, crafts, DIY, and funny cr@p that happens to me at our cottage and life in general. So pop on by and say hello!
My favorite things to cook
BBQ Chicken Penne Pasta - my husband ADORES it! Anything with rice or pasta, along with a killer bbq chicken pizza!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Easter Paska bread - my kids pester me every year to make it! It takes all day but well worth it.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out well! ;)
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married many years ago, we got our first microwave and I attempted to cook carrots in a corningware dish with a glass lid...anyway, I inadertantly set the timer for 25 minutes and went out in the backyard, next thing I knew the glass lid of the corningware was a molten mass and the carrots had turned into little charcoal briquettes! My husband has never let me hear the end of that one! :)
