Homemade Jammie Dodgers

Make the United Kingdom's favourite cookie at home, using your prefered flavour of jam. These iconic shortbread cookies are filled with jam and a thin layer of buttercream.  Jump to Recipe I have heard of Jammie Dodgers before, but never really knew what they were. I was happily surprised to see that they are a VERY popular cookie in the U.K. They remind me of cookies my Mom use to make when we were little, so I knew I wanted to try a homemade version since they aren't readily available here in Canada. These Jammie Dodgers have buttercream frosting and jam, sandwiched between two sugary shortbread cookies. Absolutely fabulous!! Not only are they super pretty, they are crazy delicious. The kids inhaled a few, after I made these.... OK, so did I, LOL. My parents were coming to visit, so I knew these would be a perfect treat for my Dad, who has always had a sweet tooth like me. These cookies would be perfect for Christmas, or even Valentines Day, by changing up the inner cut out s

We had our Thanksgiving dinner with family yesterday. It was nice to get together with everyone this year, thanks to vaccinations! We all ate until we almost burst, laughed and just enjoyed being together again, for the first time in a long time. I hope those who were able to celebrate this weekend, enjoyed the return to normalcy as much as we did!  __________________________________________________________________ Welcome to the second week of the October 2021 blog hop called " You're the Star " !

Simple Apple Pie Parfaits

  Warm spiced apples are layered with orange scented bread crumbs and pecans, in this delicious and simple Fall parfait. Perfect for a busy night, where dessert is a must! Jump to Recipe October has arrived and I am in the autumn mood. Even though we are still enjoying the warm temperatures, it has been gloomy and the sun is setting earlier every evening. When Autumn arrives, I start craving the comforting warm flavours of apple desserts. There is just something about the smell of apple and cinnamon that makes my heart happy. While we do enjoy apples all year round, the cooler weather lets us fire up the oven, to enjoy some homemade baked goodies.  The kids wanted dessert the other day, and I was exhausted from work. I thought about making apple crisp, but I had yet to do groceries and we were low on ingredients. While taking inventory of what I had, I grabbed some panko bread crumbs, butter and sugar and came up with a plan.  I took the apple crisp idea and decided to turn it into som

Is it me, or does it feel like this year is flying by? I can't believe I've been back to work for over a month now. I'm still trying to get used to being so busy, but am loving every minute of my time in my little cafeteria. Yesterday we celebrated my mother in law's birthday, by treating her to dinner out. It was a wonderful dose of normalcy. I hope you are all well and thank you for joining us this week! WELCOME to the October 2021  " You're the Star " Blog Hop!

My SO and I will still go up occasionally during Fall and Winter, but everything has been packed into totes for the most part. As much as I hate seeing summer end, I also love the cool crisp sunny days that accompany the arrival of Autumn.   WELCOME to the September 2021  " You're the Star " Blog Hop!
