There are a few food things that come to mind when you say the word Canada

That is if you know Canadians at all. One is Poutine, that delicious dish of crisp chips and squeaky cheese curds, smothered in hot gravy.  Another is Maple Syrup.  I swear our veins run with maple syrup, not blood.   Peameal Bacon, lean, juicy and rolled in cornmeal. Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches. Quebec Pea Soup, made with whole yellow peas. Molasses cookies.  Beaver Tails.  Lobster Rolls from the Maritimes and their infamous fish chowder.  Nanaimo Bars, three layers of non-baked heaven,  and the Piece de la Resistance . . .  Butter Tarts.   It is impossible to be a Canadian...

Ground Chicken Meatballs with peanut sauce (dinner or appetizer recipe)

Ground Chicken Meatballs with peanut sauce (dinner or appetizer recipe)

Ground Chicken Meatballs with Sweet Peanut Dipping Sauce I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong decade. I prefer real paper books and check out movies from the library. I write all important dates on my spiral-bound calendar and send people cards in the mail. I read magazines and rip out DIY projects or travel destinations that look interesting. These are all neatly filed away in my handy accordion folder, of course. Eh, what’s that… Pinterest? You’ll have to speak up. Apparently I’m 50 years older than I appear. My favorite is ripping out recipes that sound good. I have them stacked on...
