  1. Hi Liz, my goodness I’ve missed the WordPress blogging platform and especially hearing from you! Are you taking a break? Many changes for me, including moving and changes in my life. How are things with you and your family? I miss you!

    1. Hey Sandy
      What a lovely surprise on a cool Summer day. How is BC? am missing you too. I have been trying to work out a few things in the blog, even now I’m logged on, just not publishing as much. Omg I want to hear about all the changes and moving etc. My family is fine. School, finally closed on the 23rd and boy ain’t I glad to rest bit before I start shuttling my son to some summer camps. It’s so nice to hear from you. Take care. I Miss you too!!!!!!!

      1. I sold my condo in a day, went on a Panama cruise with some family members, that was so cool! Then I moved into a mobile home in a gorgeous park. It’s 55 plus and a gardeners delight. I have the most fantastically landscPed yard and garden and I love it. It is easy to look after and private. I may go to Australia in the new year and then we are going to do the reverse Panama cruise from Vancouver, to San Diego, through the canal and land at Port Canaveral Florida before flying home.

        1. I love admiring gardens. Sometimes I just take a walk around my neighbourhood to admire peoples’ little gardens. I don’t really have a garden though, coz I’m not much of a gardener but I love them all the same. One day I shall come to BC to see the gorgeous park. You never know I might just move to BC when the kids are all grown up…ha ha! I know you love going to Australia. Never been there but it’s certainly on my long bucket list. Every time summer arrives I start having dreadful thoughts about winter. I wish I could escape like you. I am just sitting at home blogging. I wish you all the best of summer and thanks so much for being here. My warm regards to your family and friends!!!

  2. Dear Liz,
    I love the casual tone of your blog, and it makes me happy to see your original baking ideas. Food is such a blessing, such a gift. I believe God meant us to enjoy it and not be so afraid. Thank you for inspiring me to bake. OUr five-year-old grandson stayed with us this last weekend, and we splurged with the joy of stirring up chocolate chip cookies from an old family recipe. Yes!

    .RuthAnn Ridley,

    1. Hello Ruth,
      Thank you so much for loving the tone of my blog. I am glad I inspired you to bake. That’s the goal of this blog. I hope your Grandson enjoyed the cookies. My best wishes to him. I wish you a very pleasant weekend!

    1. Hi Sheila,
      What a wonderful surprise. I love the Paella too, it tasted so damn good I would love to eat it again and again. I’m now making it at least once a week. The kids love it too. I am so glad you loved it. Have a wonderful week and please skype me!!!

  3. Hi Liz,
    You have a great blog and it’s so organised. loved the recipes. Thanx for visiting my blog, I am still in process of building up the recipes. I liked the radish pic above,its so tempting

    1. Hello Chef Divya,
      Thank you for complimenting my blog and recipes. Everything takes time to build but just make sure you post regularly, it will grow. I have been blogging for 7 months now and I really love every moment I spend on this blog. Thank you for visiting me, all the way from Southampton. I wish you a fantastic week!

    1. I am a big procrastinator so a list kind of helps me see my progress at a glance and jolts me to action if I am getting lazy. Thanks. Have a pleasant day!
      P/S I asked if you live in Canada because I wanted to add your blog on my list of Canadian Blogs. And oh yes you can replicate the same idea on your blog!

      1. thanks I live in toronto.. appreciate your adding me to your list. your blogger list is also another great idea.. Wish I could be more organized with blogging too!!

        1. Thanks. I shall add it right now. Is it raining in Toronto like here? We are having a mini storm, the sky is growling so much. I have a sister who lives in Toronto. You can be organized if you want. Just start doing what you want to do and it will progress. Wish you all the best!

    1. I have been neglecting it of late. It’s not completely updated. I like to see my progress, and this helps, immensely. Thanks for reminding me to do the updating.

    1. It helps me keep more organized. Thanks for noticing the index. And thanks so much for the multitude of likes. I really appreciate the kind gesture!!! Wish you a wonderful week!!!

      1. Ditto…sometimes I come upon a blog that I really like and find myself trying to catch up on many of their posts that I missed. Such is the case with yours.

        1. Thanks so much. Your blog is great too. I enjoyed browsing!!! Look forward to seeing more of your posts.

  4. Wondering if you might be able to help me figure something out. ???
    About 30 years ago, in Michigan. ..on my farm/horse stables/ranch (? lol) , at Christmas time, I found a gift that som1 left in my mailbox. It was some kind of homemade bread, still in the can it was baked in. I never knew what kind it was (or who left it) but I loved it. It was very dark! And dense, very moist! Like a rum or something. Rich. Maybe you have an idea?

    1. Hi thanks for stopping here and thanks for liking my coffee cake and Date and Coconut Loaf, much appreciated. From your description, it’s really hard to say what that was because you only say bread and not the other ingredients. I am sorry I can’t help. It must have been some Christmas Pudding perhaps? hard to know. Thanks for visiting my blog and hope to see more of your. Have a lovely weekend!

      1. Never heard of Boston Brown Bread, but I see I have something new to add to my cookery vocabulary. Hope the lady who asked the question sees this. I shall give a shout. Thanks for this information. Have a lovely weekend!

        1. Thanks. That bread looks very rich. Worth trying. I have bookmarked. thanks so much for passing on the recipes!

  5. Hi liz, Wow. I can’t believe how many recipes u have here. I better get going on mine. Shaming me. Thx for visiting my blog. I like all the baked goods on your blog. Somehow I didnt get that gene. – phyllis

    1. Hi Phyllis,
      Thanks for leaving me a happy and hilarious note. I am really trying to build up a recipe index, takes time but that’s how life is. Every good thing takes time to build so you just keep on working on yours as well and we shall motivate each other. You don’t need genes to bake, just weigh the ingredients and follow the step-by-step instructions you’ll be surprised at the end results Everybody has a baking gene, if only they unleashed it. Thanks for visiting me and have a lovely weekend!

    1. I have just been eating them raw in salads or using them for garnishing, Thanks for letting me know, I shall sauté and see how much better they taste. Thank you so much for stopping by twice, I really appreciate your presence here. Hope to see more of you in future!

    1. Ha ha, slowly but surely, I post at least three recipes a week. Thanks for stopping by and for liking my posts on several occasions, your Gravatar is unique, so I always know when you’ve been around. Take care!

    1. Thanks so much for the compliments. I really appreciate your kind words. You are welcome to get tips at anytime. You can reach me on (myfavouritepastime(at) or through the blog. Wish you a pleasant weekend!

        1. You are welcome. Keep in touch. I shall be visiting your blog from time to time to see how you are progressing! take care!

    1. Minestrone Soup is one of my best soups and the Corn and Ham Muffins are great too. I’m glad you like a few things that I like!

    1. I have to do everything to make my followers come back. I have cooked/baked everything on the listing, but need time to post them so they will be coming slow but sure!! Thanks for following my blog, and remember the beautiful scarf is still awaiting posting if I get a nod from you!!!

        1. Oh thanks! I shall start working on the photos but you might want to be showing them more frequently, not just one time. i can reserve a spot for you. You can also post some special recipes from time to time! I know you have some great recipes, out there!! You are welcome to do a guest post anytime if it is okay with you. Thanks for the support!
