Gluten Free Roasted Vegetable Pesto Lasagna

Gluten Free Roasted Vegetable Pesto Lasagna

This is for my gluten free friends who are allergic to tomatoes. I had a craving for lasagna, but I’m allergic to wheat and tomato. Luckily, I came across some gluten free, no-boil lasagna noodles at the store and dreamed up this recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

Summer Squash Casserole

Summer Squash Casserole

Living in the countryside where most people garden, I am often faced with the common question of what to do with too many summer squash. I made this recipe with yellow crooknecks, but it ought to work with any firm squash, like zucchini or patty-pan. It is almost soufflé like, fluffy and creamy and cheesy all at once.

Turkey Dressing

Turkey Dressing

Here on the East Coast of Canada, and especially in the “potato belt” where I live, this Thanksgiving side dish is featured in a lot of households. It’s one of those recipes that I’ve never measured – I just eyeball it to feed whoever is showing up, plus extra for surprise drop-ins and leftovers.
Note: you’ll want to prepare this when your turkey is just about or completely done cooking so you can scoop the pan juices.

This is my late-grandmother’s recipe that I found in her handwriting in the cookbook I inherited upon her passing. I cherish each and every recipe she collected, and this is a popular one!

Maple Nut Spiced Caramel Corn

Maple Nut Spiced Caramel Corn

I love making my own variations of granola and caramel corn because I can add the ingredients I like depending on the season. For Fall I make my caramel corn with pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup and chocolate chips. You can change it up with your favorite nuts, and or dried berries.

Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies

Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies

I recently discovered Madeliene Cookies and I love baking and making them. For this contest, I decided to use the base ingredients of Madeleine Cookies. After reading many recipes, I decided on what ingredients I wanted to try, adjust and or change for this new Madeleine recipe. These Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies are new but maintain the beauty and essence of a traditional Madeleine Cookie. I call these cookies Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies. Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies are pretty, flavor bursting and filling little treats. This recipe substantially reduces the amount of butter used in a traditional Madeleine cookie. It also adds new flavors and color to a traditional Madeleine cookie.
