Toffee Cranberry Crisps

These cookies are soft and chewy and so easy to make. They have toffee bits and cranberries in them. You can buy the the toffee bits in the baking section of your grocery store. I attached a photo of the brand that I bought. I found the recipe many years ago in one of my "Best of Bridge" cook books. This cookie is one of my favourite cookies and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Instructions


Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Mix in cranberries and toffee bits. Place teaspoonfuls of dough 2″ apart on greased cookie sheets. Don’t make them too large – they spread! Bake at 350 F. for 10 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 5 dozen.

Stove Top Chili Mac


This is a tasty one pan dish that comes together quickly. It is a great combination. My kids prefer it over chili.

Creme Brulee

My family loves classic creme brulee. When we go to a fancy restaurant we are sure to order even if we are too full for dessert. This recipe is easy and delicious. You will definitely impress your family and friends with this recipe. What is great is that you can make the custard up to 2 days in advance and then before serving you light up your kitchen torch and caramelize the sugar. I use turbindo sugar or also called sugar in the raw. It is easy to find in the grocery store but if you don't have it you can simply use granulated sugar.

Beef Pot Pies Topped with Puff Pastry


Traditionally pot pies are lined and topped with pie pastry but in this recipe you simply top each with store bought puff pastry. Make the beef stew and then just before serving fill an oven proof dish with the stew and then top with the pastry. The pastry puffs up and gets crispy and really sends this basic dish over the top. You can see in the photo I used my french onion soup bowls but any oven proof dish works. This recipe made about 10 pot pies. You can freeze the pies but I recommend thawing the stew mixture prior to topping with the puff pastry or else the pastry gets too brown and over cooked.

Spicy Chicken Spagetti


My kids love casseroles and we have been enjoying this one for a few years. This is a very quick and easy casserole to throw together. The recipe calls for canned Rotel which is not available in Canada. Rotel is just diced tomatoes and chilies. When I go to the states I usually try and source some out and stick my pantry. If you do not have Rotel than just substitute with your favourite salsa. My family likes it spicy so I use hot salsa if I don't have Rotel on hand.
