Before I get into this recipe, let me apologize to anyone who makes authentic Mexican Cuisine. I suspect this recipe would make them cringe. It is not authentic Mexican. It is just what I like. Continue reading Chicken Cheese Enchiladas
It is a tradition for us to make snack mix for Christmas. I just use the standard recipe but if you don’t have it, it is at:

I decided to get my sourdough starter, Sam, to make me some pancakes. I did some research and settled on this recipe to give it a try. Continue reading Sourdough Pancakes
As per the previous post, my missus made two of my favourite dishes. The second was marinated coleslaw. I normally don’t care for the creamy coleslaws but this is a deli style coleslaw made with a sweetened vinegar marinade. Continue reading Kittencal’s Marinated Coleslaw

This is a special occasion dinner for She Who Must Be Obeyed and me. It is like smoked salmon but sweet and peppery. I knock most of the peppercorns off before eating.
