No-Bake Jello Cheesecake

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” »

Grandma’s Albanian Cabbage Stew – Mish me Lakra

Cabbage Stew

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” »

Fruity Pebbles Treats

Fruity Pebbles Treats

Fruity Pebbles, I haven’t seen them in years, many many years…probably since I was a kid! Of course the box says limited edition, which means they will only be available for a few months or so. I do not normally buy sugary or fruity cereals, unless of course it’s limited edition, and anyone that knows me knows, that I am an impulsive shopper!  Continue reading “Fruity Pebbles Treats” »
