Last weekend was Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. My SO's sister, and her partner, hosted a lovely intimate dinner for us, and SO's mom. I fell in love with the tablescape, that they created for our meal. It was great to get a bit of normalcy in, even if our dinner was not as big as years past. I wasn't able to visit my family for the holiday, but we decided it would be more prudent to stick to our social bubble. 

Dinner was delicious! We started with a Curried Butternut Squash Soup, followed by turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rutabaga, green beans, fresh cranberry sauce and homemade rolls (which I brought). Dinner was followed by a fire in the back yard and a video call from family, to wish each other a Happy Thanksgiving. We ended the night with a pumpkin pie, I had made, and coffee/tea. The day blessed us with lovely weather, so we took the opportunity to take family photos. 

This past Wednesday was my SO's birthday. I spent the day pampering him and making him an amazing birthday cake. He LOVES peanut butter and had requested a chocolate cake, so I decided to make him a chocolate cake, with peanut butter frosting and chocolate frosting. It was so rich and decadent and our little family has been enjoying for the last few days, LOL.

Things are cooling down here in Ontario, so comfort food is making an appearance several times a week. We did do a BIG grocery shop, and bought a lot of meat, many of it will be used for several meals after cooking. Here is my plan for this week:

  • Pork roast with sauteed gnocchi and carrots sticks
  • sandwiches and salad
  • broccoli cheddar soup with homemade bread bowl
  • Chiard
  • homemade sushi, dill pickle cheeseball and crackers
  • left over night (clean out the Fridge)
  • eggs, toast and fruit

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown
