Eating cake has been a long-time family tradition. For as long as I can remember, there has been a cake for every birthday, every anniversary, and every party, event, or occasion. Our family ate cake wherever we went. The bigger the cake, the better it was.

This is a tasty side that we serve several times per week at our house.  Our little guy really loves the fun texture of the spaghetti squash and he enjoys playing with it as he eats it.  One of our favourite quick fall meals is combining 1 pound of cooked ground beef with this recipe for a complete casserole that our whole family enjoys.                  spaghetti squash Continue Reading…

Here is another dish that takes advantage of fall fruits and vegetables.  The sweetness of the apples combined with the tartness of the turnip really delight the taste buds.  It tastes delicious whether it is served either hot or cold.
