Baked Maple Donuts with Maple Glaze

…………I have a serious confession here folks. This might get me in trouble with a lot of people. It definately pushes me down the “How Canadian Are YOU” list. Here it is. *deep breath* THERE. I said it. (waiting for lightning to strike me down) No? Okay. I do admit I like Maple Syrup. The real deal though not that ‘maple flavouring’ stuff.

Have your Applesauce and CAN it too!

And for some of you that *really* know me you know that my dinners used to include were basically Cadbury Creme Eggs, Oreos and Cherry Coke. But alas; time marches on and one’s metabolism slows down.

Roasted Cauliflower – (Not a quilt pattern, a recipe)

Okay. If you’d told me last week I’d not only be roasting and eating an entire head of cauliflower for dinner I’d think you were having a wack attack. Tonite I did just that – I used the most FABULOUS recipe from a even more FABULOUSER (it is so a word. I just made it up) lady who blogs out Cleveland way…..”Clean Eats, Fast Feets” – I highly recommend checking it out.  I’ve used several of her recipes and never been disappointed. My all time fav recipe for how to…
