If you love a no bake cheesecake, this recipe is for you! It is light and fluffy. Even though it is made with lemon flavoured gelatin you cannot taste the lemon, so if you are not a lemon fan you will not notice it! My Aunt Angela always made this cheesecake when we were kids, it was my favourite. Continue reading “No-Bake Lemon Jello Cheesecake” »
This is my grandmother’s recipe for mish me lakra, which translates to meat with cabbage. I don’t like big pieces of meat in my stew so I make it with bite size pieces of tender stew meat. You can use beef or lamb, which ever you prefer. We are not big meat eaters, so I don’t add a lot you may use 1 lb of meat, more or less, I use less.
You can also make this meatless if you wish.
Growing up this is one of the dishes my grandmother made that I really enjoyed. I am happy to share this with you today! Continue reading “Grandma’s Albanian Cabbage Stew – Mish me Lakra” »

We are really enjoying peach season this year, from cobbler, jam, grilled peaches, and pies we cannot get enough of these juicy and sweet peaches! Too bad it only lasts for a few weeks in August. Today I am sharing with you my peach pie, it’s a family favourite…much like all my pies!
It’s peach season here in Ontario, after strawberry season this is my second favourite! Grilled peaches is a simple yet delicious way of using your peaches. Serve it with vanilla ice cream and there you have it, a delightful and sweet dessert. Continue reading “Grilled Peaches” »
It’s blueberry mania in our house this week, every day I made something with blueberries or we ate them fresh. I got a good deal on blueberries, and to top it off they were Canadian grown…can’t beat local produce!
One of my favourite treats when I was a kid was my Aunt Angela’s ambrosia salad I just loved it, still do till today! She used fruit flavoured marshmallows for this, and that is what I used in this recipe. Hers was made with only sour cream, you can make it only using sour cream as well if you like.
