Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These are devoured in no time. It is so hard to stop eating them once you start!! They are soft and chewy just the way a oatmeal cookie should be!!!

Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

I made this mousse cake for Thanksgiving and it was worth it. Don’t let the long directions scare you this is a VERY easy recipe. Each step is repetitious of the step before. The perfect dessert to make ahead and keep in the freezer for last minute entertaining.

Cajun Chicken Alfredo

This chicken alfredo recipe is a little different from the norm as it has a Cajun spice rub on the chicken for a extra layer of flavour. In the summer I BBQ the chicken but in the winter I bake the chicken in the oven.I got this recipe from one of my Guy Fieri cookbooks. It calls for one cup of chopped sun-dried tomatoes in the recipe and it is excellent when included but sometimes I don't always have them on hand and the recipe is equally as good. The pictures in this recipe do not include the tomatoes.  I like to serve this rich creamy dish with a salad or steam/sauteed vegetables.

Mushroom Turnovers

I love preparing appetizers ahead of time so that when my guests arrive most of my work is done and I can enjoy the company of my friends and family.I recently made these little gems for my daughter's birthday as she loves mushrooms, and they were a big hit.  Make these mushroom turnovers ahead of time and store in the freezer. Reheat and serve. Delicious!!!
