Easy Spicy Lasagna in Memory of Dad

Spicy Lasagna by Cravings of a Lunatic

   There's a couple of days on the calendar each year I dread. There's no way around them. I wish I could pretend they don't exist. But they do. And that sucks. March 5 is the day my Mom passed away in 1984. May 7 is the day my Dad passed away in 2007. I wrote about my Dad last year.  I also wrote about my Mom last year, and did a huge multi-blogger memorial for her this year. I was going to do the same for my Dad  but my life is so in flux and high stress right now that it … [Read more...]

Mile High Lasagna #SundaySupper Home for the Holidays Event

Mile High Lasagna

This week's theme made perfect sense to the Bee household. Home for the Holidays could not ring more true than it does this year. My son moved away for school this year. He moved pretty freaking far. We're in Ontario and he is in Alberta. After we drove him out there this summer it really hit me how far he is and how much I miss him. I realize hooligans need to spread their wings but Alberta is freaking far. We were missing B-Dude and he was homesick so we made the decision for him to come home … [Read more...]

Panzerotti: Vintage Recipe Swap


  Hi folks! So today is reveal day for the Burwell Vintage Recipe Swappers. I love being part of this group. It is so much fun to participate in. I know I swore I would never do a pizza for the swap again but little did I know Christianna had chosen pizza as our next challenge.

When someone gives me a pizza recipe to revamp it would be physically impossible for me to not keep it in the pizza … [Read more...]

Kim’s Essex County Famous Lasagna

Kim's Essex County Famous Lasagna

The secret is out!   Okay I hesitated to put this out there.   Then I wondered if I should hold back an ingredient from you. But then I remembered that Everybody Loves Raymond episode where his mom gives Debra the spice bottle and Deb's recipe never turns out, and they find out she's put a label over the real label and used bad spices to purposely mess up Debra's food. And well I just can't do that to you guys.   So here it is in all it's glory, who knows, you may hate … [Read more...]
