Jamming, canning and preserving 2014

I missed canning season last year due to illness. It was my delight to put up several jars of pickled beets today.

Quesada Just Opened

I quite liked Quesada although the rapidity of service could improve. On the West Island you have a number of mid-range restaurants for lunch or fast food chains, not really much choice. I like have an alternative to the standard fare for a modest price.

Mexigo - 15616 Gouin Boul. in the west island

Regarding Quesada, it suits my purposes for a tasty lunch in comparison to what is around that area but I do agree that they could work on the service. They are friendly and pleasant.

I used the bottled ones and thickened the liquid for the pie. I have seen the bottle ones at a number of stores. My niece advised it was the best pie that she had in ages. I think you are looking for the frozen and that I have not seen in the Montreal area at all.

I made an apple and a sour cherry pie on the weekend. Fall is the time for pies for me anyways.

Rose hip jam or jelly is quite delicious. It is also a nice fruit in teas. It is supposed to be very good for the skin.

Butters are in vogue it seems. Seen a number of pictures of plum butter recently.

Quesada in Galarie des Sources is quite good if you like the tacos and burritos.

I failed to restrain myself and folded and bought another cookbook on my weekly Chapters run. I purchased the Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila. It has 101 foods you can stop buying and start making so the subtitle says.

Chapter's is oh so dangerous. I was looking at a book by Sam Stern but logic prevailed for once!

I meant bookshelves which I put in only one area of my house. I had cookbooks all over the place and now that they are in one place reality is setting in. I have a lot of cookbooks. It's great that they are in one place but I do not want to have more than what is in that particular bookshelf. Just gave three books to my nephew and will continue to do some purging. However I love my cookbooks.

Cookbooks or recipes for jaded, time-constrained mom

I like Marcy Goldman's book when Bakers Cook. The recipes are simple.
