These light, buttery crispy little French cookies are very addictive and with the use of frozen puff pastry sheets they are very very easy.They are also know as elephant ears or butterfly cookies. When you read the instructions it may seem complicated and they are truly very easy. Here is a link to a very helpful video:

These ribs are a family favourite. This recipe comes from the "Company's Coming" Slow cooker cookbook. I like to cook them in the slow cooker until tender but not fall off the bone tender and then finish them in the oven. This allows the sauce to thicken and also for the ribs to get a little crispy. Tender and tasty!! Great for week nights but special enough to serve to company.

This recipe has been in our families for well over 20 years. It was originally given to us to us by our near and dear sister-in-law. Over the years it has been revamped into this version. There were a few years up here in Canada that we were unable to purchase Bugles (the dry years) as General Mills had stopped distributing the Bugles up here, so whenever we or someone we knew went to the USA or Mexico we had them bringing us bags of Bugles. The types or quantity of  cereals/crackers can easily be changed to suit your likes, just make sure you stick to the same quantity of dry ingredients. This mix also makes a nice gift for co-workers, teachers etc. at Christmas time. Many folks that normally don't like "Nuts and Bolts" have changed their minds after tasting this version.

This cake is  exceptionally moist and flavorful. The recipe begins with a standard boxed cake mix however with the addition of few special ingredients this cake is elevated to  "show stopper" status. All too often you hear folks saying "no cake for me, I don't like sweet icing" but once they try this one they become addicted to it !!!!! Throw away all your other recipes as this will be the only cake you will be ask to bake!!!!
