I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

About 1/3 cup each chopped chives, dried cranberries and more chopped nuts or nutty seedy granola

Combine the 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, cream cheese, maple syrup, mozzarella, cinnamon and cumin. Using a small ice cream scoop, 1" size, scoop into balls and chill.

Once chilled roll each ball in the chives, dried cranberries and nuts.
