When Good Cherry Crisps Go Bad


Hi folks! Hope everyone is enjoying their tuesday. One day closer to the weekend. It will be our Canadian Thanksgiving this coming weekend. Still unsure what I'm making. I have a tendency to make too much food. And about a gazillion side dishes. I usually do multiple veggie choices and multiple desserts and always a few potato options. Which is really sad as we usually only have about 6 or 8 people here. Lol! So not sure why the need for overkill.. I am ordering a ham but it's a "Kim does not … [Read more...]

Roast Chicken and Stuffing

PHOTOS MISSING, WILL BE REPLACED SOON. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING. xx Hey folks. Okay so I can explain this one. Seriously I can. It's been a long week. So where do I start? I made roast chicken which I do often. I use quite a few different techniques depending on my mood and time. So this time I wanted to share with you how to flip the bird over and brown both sides.
