KIM'S BEST EVER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Today is my Dad's birthday so I thought I'd share these today because he has always been a cookie monster and these are absolutely THE BEST EVER chocolate chip cookies you will ever eat. I guarantee it, email me if I'm wrong because I have never been so sure of myself in my whole life.
Borscht can be made in so many different ways, there seems to be variations for all different cultures but it's a very basic soup that is so hearty and delicious. This recipe comes from my father-in-law and he always makes it in the late summer and early fall with fresh veggies from his garden.
RHUBARB OATMEAL COOKIES
It's rhubarb season! I especially love rhubarb in pies and tarts, one of my favourites is raspberry rhubarb. It's almost raspberry season so that'll be showing up next but today it's rhubarb oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips.
FARMING 101: FEED
We have three types of bales we handle for our herd: silage hay, hay and straw. The ones I have pictured here are all round bales we make with our round baler but we also have smaller squares we make up of hay and straw for hand feeding and bedding in the barn.
Kim's Pecan and Butter Tarts
Just in time for Christmas, this is THE BEST pecan and butter tart recipe you will ever taste. It's not too sweet, just the right consistency and melts in your mouth every time. They're very easy to make as well so even if you're a beginner baker, you can master these tarts and everyone will be raving about them after Christmas dinner.
HOMEMADE MINCEMEAT TARTS
This is one of those recipes you either really love or really hate. As a kid, I didn't like it but I wasn't a big raisin fan so that's why but now I love it! It's so spicy and festive!
GRANDMA'S CINNAMON BUNS
The Athena Collection was inspired by my Grandma Verna Athena who also came up with this bread and cinnamon bun recipe when I was a little girl. It's one of the best you'll ever have!
AUNTY CATHY'S DILL PICKLES
For some reason canning, pickling and making jam or pie filling seem to be really intimidating to a lot of people but if you have the right tools it's really not that difficult to do. And who doesn't love dill pickles? Just like cookies, I find that homemade are never the same as store-bought either - they're always better.
GRANDMA EVELYN'S GINGER SNAPS
This is a great recipe for ginger snap cookies, our whole family loves them! It's another one from Grandma Evelyn, she always said the way to someone's heart is through their stomach!
ARIZONA LEMON PIE
My parents are snowbirds and they live in Arizona for the winter. We love to go down and visit them every year, the retirement lifestyle is one for me. I love the pace of everything and the sun keeps me smiling. My Mom got this recipe from one of her neighbours a few years ago and it's the best lemon pie recipe you will ever taste. It's also made in the blender so it takes minutes to do.
NANA'S BUCKET PICKLESWe call these bucket pickles because of how we make them but they're also known as bread and butter pickles, sweet pickles or sweet mustard pickles too. My favourite way to eat these is on a plain saltine cracker with a piece of marble cheese!
