Carole’s BEST Baked Beans

Carole loves baked beans and she has found the absolute perfect, easy way to make them divine using the Instant Pot. Some directions may seem a bit strange....like "cook at High Pressure for 0 minutes + 30 minutes Natural Release" but Carole says to trust her and DO IT!  Place 1 pound (454g) dried navy [...]

Instant Pot Sunshine Lemon Chicken Chowder

Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

I cannot tell a lie…..every once in awhile we do the “loss-leader” run to Costco and buy one of their rotisserie chickens. After picking from it for a couple of days I then let the magic of the Instant Pot step in to transform it into a delish soup that tastes like it has cooked [...]

Instant Pot Thai Butternut Squash Soup

Has my passion for the Instant Pot died any? NOT A CHANCE!!! I love it even more! Here is one of my recent favourites. The only revamping that I did was to use Bryson Farms frozen pureed squash (from my weekly Bryson Farm delivery….email me if you want details on that precious weekly event) and [...]

Kheer, or Gluten Free Rice Pudding

I always like to do a gluten-free dessert for our home concerts, so rice pudding seemed like a natural choice. BUT ...the traditional rice pudding is not something that gets me terribly excited. Enter Kheer..... Indian rice pudding. I cooked this in a slow cooker for almost a day and it turned out beautifully (okay.....I [...]

Carole’s Brown Bread Recipe

Okay…….I will fess up. This is NOT Mom’s recipe. It is my New Brunswick childhood friend’s recipe, Sherry Share Deware, an amazing baker in her own right. My mother made THE best brown bread in the world and readily shared her recipe. But I suspect, as did others, that there was the “Pat” secret ingredient [...]

Mustard & Rosemary Lamb Chops with Red Wine Drizzle

Mustard & Rosemary Lamb Chops with Red Wine Drizzle I cannot lie…even as a child, at Christmas, I chose to eat vegetables, dressing and gravy but bypass the turkey. I so wish that lamb had been served instead.  2015 was the year of lamb at our household….and I think that Christmas should be no exception! [...]
