I love cooking, ever since my mum first taught me when I was little. Cooking has always been close to my heart, a chance to experiment with new recipes, to fill one’s belly with deliciousness and also as a way to show (and share) your love with those you care about.
I love seeing my boy’s eyes light up when I make their favourite dinners or treats. It’s a way to say “I love you” without having to say a thing. I just love to cook and bake and the more people I am doing it for the better. Nothing is more special that a large family dinner for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I will always feed anyone at my house at dinnertime
People always appreciate being fed, or receiving something homemade. Many a time I have gone into my pantry to get a jar of my homemade dill pickles, or homemade jam, pickled jalapeños or homemade tomato sauce to give it to a friend. My one standing rule is as long as you return the jar then you can get a refill! Talking about jars I am so in love with these retro blue ball jars…
Add these chalk top mason jar lids and I am in canning heaven!
So enough talk, now its time to get down to business and share some recipes! Below are some of my top recipes, ones I love the most and those that people are always asking me to make or share! I hope you enjoy and that you find some that you love to make and use to say “I love you” to your own families.
