I’ve been in search of a GREAT crispy, REAL Ginger tasting gingersnap for years now. Many recipes on the internet claimed to be THE best one. One recipe even claimed to be the recipe for the old, hot gingersnap that Nabisco used to sell.
Huh! That was a laugh.
That recipe had way to much sugar for my liking, so DO be careful to use LESS than the 1 cup of mixed sugars rather than more than. Continue reading
Have you noticed? Everyone is talking about Quinoa now, so I got curious and decided to try it. Though claims have been made that Quinoa is a great replacement for rice, I wasn’t prepared to substitute it straight out for rice when making my favourite rice pudding. You see, I’m not a fan or tapioca pudding and Quinoa looks for-all-the-world like tapioca to me. Hence I searched for a brand new recipe; one I’d be more apt to love… of which here is my variation of Broccoli Cheese Casserole.
In 2004, when I first discovered Phil Booth was when he wrote the horoscopes for the Toronto Star Newspaper. Eerie though this may sound, his predictions for my zodiac sign were so “bang” on so many times in a row that I started to read his horoscopes “religiously” and enjoyed the many hopeful horizons he saw in my sign.
Back in February 2011, I made the mistake of trusting an Oshawa GM dealership, after a friend assured me that times had changed, explaining that he had received good customer service from this once well-known to be dishonest dealer. This former co-worker and friend introduced me to his salesman, and I let him talk me into using the new vehicle voucher that was given as part of the package deal I had received for having been forced out of work back in 2009.

I especially love it when a new concoction turns out as well as this one did… What a WINNER HERE!
This is what I came up with:
After the second week of attacks on my impatiens, I started asking neighbours if they were suffering a loss of flowers, but nope! One neighbour claimed that even the rabbits have been leaving his veggie garden alone this year. Many of my neighbours must have thought I was crazy, I mean, what animal would want to eat impatiens only? …though it did eat off the tops of white daisies that had already gone to seed.

My girlfriend from grade school is on a diet and she’s doing spectacularly well so I don’t want to hinder her progress. But, it’s her birthday and we like to celebrate our birthdays with chocolate cake.
When we were kids, my mother decorated one of my birthday cakes on a budget… she used Smarties. From that day on, when invited to my birthday parties, my friends would always ask anxiously if my mother was making chocolate cake with Smarties on it, again this year. Thus a tradition got started.
Getting back to my girlfriends birthday cake, I had a choice… to make Pamela a chocolate cake that would only add temptation to break her progress (not a choice!)… or make her cupcakes instead.
Cupcakes won out because they can be frozen for later use… thus my title “Decadent Diet Birthday Cake.”
