The frost that I've been dreading came two nights ago, of course while I was sick.  So I spent a miserable afternoon cutting pumpkins and squashes (along with the last few cobs of corn) and hauling them in the children's wagon to the house.  Luckily the kids carried the smaller pumpkins and… MORE

Stressed is desserts spelled backwards for good reason.  When I'm stressed I like to eat desserts, note the plural.  I'm a stress eater and have been since sometime in high school.  When things are tough and I feel powerless to change them I turn to food.  I know that this is not healthy but… MORE

Inspired by Healthy banana cookies   I have a problem following recipes; there I said it. I'm always adding a little of this or omitting that and making substitutions, sometimes to the point where the finished dish doesn't even resemble the original recipe. I like to thin MORE

The Prince Albert Youth Center, known affectionately to staff and youth alike as the YAC, is my little cooking get away. The YAC and I have a bit of a history. When the center opened many years ago my aunt was one of the outreach workers and I was in my early teens. I often hung out there a MORE
