It’s that time of year again where the ghosts, goblins and ghouls come out from their dark corners to haunt little children…and for adults to stuff our faces with delicious chocolate, candy, drinks and treats. That’s right, it’s Halloween. Bob and I were invited back to do another cooking segment with CTV Morning Live with a Halloween twist. We kept true to who we are, Bob covering the savory, while I dived into the sweeter side of Halloween with a Dexter inspired chocolate pie. Let’s get to the recipe so you can make it for your spooky Halloween party!

Over this summer, a good friend and I have been going out for evening trail rides every Friday. These are such a treat, nothing beats the relaxation of good friends, beautiful scenery of the Saskatchewan prairies and a horse. Before we head out, we eat dinner with her adorable little family. I recently made these for one of our rides and they were a hit! Easy, and tiny enough to fit perfectly in your hand (and just small enough for not feeling guilty if you have a second helping ) I’d imagine you could play around with the type of apples or the filling itself. All in all, these are a wonderful fall treat and would make a beautiful addition to any dessert table.

Just like Saskatoon berries, raspberries are in full force at our family acreage. Raspberries are great for freezing, eating fresh or making jams, but I was interested in making something more with them, so when I saw this recipe on Pinterest I knew I had to give it a try! A friend also tried this recipe but switched up some of the dark chocolate with milk chocolate and it tasted amazing, so I kept that change when I made the bars for one of our Sunday family dinners. Let’s get to the recipe so you can try it for yourself. Continue reading

Where we come from, a tasty little berry lives in the plenty: The Saskatoon Berry. These berries are sweet, slightly tart and nutty in flavor. Our parents have quite a few Saskatoon berry bushes in their fruit orchard, so come late July and early August, it’s Saskatoon berry galore.
I made this pie for a redneck day (shooting guns and bows, quadding through mud, exploring old farm yards, campfires and scouting moose, elk, owls and deer) at my Uncle Waz and Auntie Rita’s farm. People always talk up pies and I think it’s because they have the expectation that they are hard to make. But try this recipe, and you’ll quickly see that they are actually an easy, quick and delicious desert. Let’s get to the recipe so you can try it out yourself. Continue reading

How this pie came about was a bit strange because for some odd reason I was craving a Banana Cream Pie or a Coconut Cream Pie (I think I’ll make that one next), but I’ve never had a slice of Banana Cream Pie in my life; or not that I can remember anyways. Regardless of where this craving came from, I hustled into the kitchen to whip up my first Banana Cream Pie. Let’s get to the recipe so you can satisfy your own cravings. Continue reading
I’ve been looking for a solid breakfast oatmeal pie recipe for a while ever since trying it at our local farmer’s market. After stumbling across this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a whirl. I changed it quite a bit, using the Pinterest recipe more so as a platform to create a fall inspired breakfast pie. Now let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading
A while ago, Bob & I were contacted by Taste of Home to review their “Cooking School Cookbook” and immediately we said yes. Taste of Home is one of the premier cookbook companies so how could we say no?! One of the recipes that first caught my eye was the Cherry Pie recipe – I’ve never cooked a pie from scratch before and each summer we have pounds upon pounds of fresh tart cherries. With my schedule finally freeing up and having a free evening, I dove into the kitchen to make this pie. Let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading
