Where to even begin?  I have a serious sweet tooth and this selection doesn’t even scratch the surface.  Here’s a few of my favourites.

The most gorgeous Saskatoon Berry Cheesecake you’ll ever make.  P.S.- For those of you wondering what the heck a Saskatoon berry is, it’s like a blueberry but a bit more sour with a meatier texture.

Strawberry Shortcake that was so good it was a wedding dessert.

No Churn Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream.  Need I say more?

Garden Fresh Favourites

Have you ever planted or picked something from your garden and wondering what on earth you were going to do with it all?  These recipes are your new best friend.

Have a crab apple tree full of apples and no idea what to do with it? You'll want to make this maple spiced crab apple butter! All the smells and tastes of autumn. Spread it on toast or fresh bread, use it as a pancake topping, or use it to flavour plain yogurt.

My current favourite to put on toast or spoon into plain yogurt: Maple Apple Butter

My favourite salad that uses up the best fruits and garden produce of summer.

Have you heard of red hamburger relish?  It’s been discontinued in Canada, so here’s a copycat recipe to get you through until you can sneak in some from somewhere else.  However, it’s so good that you probably won’t need to.

Too many tomatoes and too little time?  Roasted Basil Tomato Sauce is going to be your new go-to.
