Stuffed Baked Potato Recipe

You can bake or boil your potatoes. Boiling will make the first part of this dish go faster, but baking probably adds even more flavour. You want them tender but don't boil them until they're falling apart. Let them cool enough so that you can handle them before scooping out the flesh.

Couscous Recipe

Couscous has to be the easiest thing in the world to make. You can add all kinds of flavours to it to keep it interesting.



Greek Flavoured Chicken Brine Recipe

I used this with chicken drumsticks but these flavours would also go well with pork.
 



Strawberry Cake Balls from Scratch Recipe

First, let me apologize for not posting as much as I used to, and for not replying to all your wonderful comments. I do appreciate them! I've just gone back to work full time, and with two small kids, I have less time to blog.

And now for the cake balls. My original plan was to make a strawberry cake for Aylin's 1st birthday. I made it once and it was delicious, but when I went to make it again for the party it was a flop. I'm not sure what went wrong the second time but it didn't seem to rise properly. I didn't want to toss it so I decided to make cake balls out of it. Chances are, your cake WILL rise but that's okay. Use it! Or use this recipe to make a cake. It's really fabulous. And just so you know, this cake tastes like strawberry ice cream! I imagine you could probably take this recipe and switch up the flavours of jello and fruit purees.

This is a from scratch recipe, but you could cheat by preparing a boxed cake mix and using a store bought tub of frosting.

Chicken and Apple Salad Sandwich Recipe

I had some left over chicken breast and I wanted to make a sandwich. I decided on this chicken apple salad sandwich. If you don't like the taste of raw regular onions, you could use a sweeter onion or the green part of scallions. I used a Mcintosh apple but a Granny Smith would also be good since it's sour.
