Sweet and Sour Meatballs with Pineapple

FOR ALL THOSE TIMES YOU WANT COMFORT FOOD THAT SENDS YOU INTO YUM MODE…PICK THIS RECIPE!   Don’t pass by this recipe frugal foodie fans because sweet and sour meatballs are on the menu and I’m almost certain I’ll have you wrapped around a bowl by the end of this recipe. Everyone loves meatballs unless your vegetarian and unfortunately this is a meat-lovers recipe today. One meal my family just loves including our toddler is sweet and sour meatballs over garlic fried rice. Over the years my wife and I have experimented with various kinds of meatballs but always go back to the tried and true original Nonna’s Italian meatball recipe. The great thing about having a standard meatball recipe is that you can use it as a base to add other flavours on top like we did with the sweet and sour sauce that has brown sugar, ketchup, Franks Red Hot Sauce, sweet pineapple and few other ingredients that bring together a delicious sweet yet sour coating for the meatballs. Meatballs are delicious fried or baked on their own, soaking in pasta sauce, dripping in a honey garlic glaze or coated in sweet and sour sauce. Sweet and sour […]

Amazing Pumpkin Scones With Pumpkin Spice Icing

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO WITH PUMPKIN PUREE   As soon as October hits all we see is pumpkin this, that and everything else in our social media feeds. Well I’m sharing with you these moist Pumpkin Scones because you WILL Love them, especially if you are a Fall pumpkin fanatic like I am. I heard Starbucks has a pretty amazing pumpkin scone and judging by the amount of people who loved my Starbucks-like lemon loaf you can trust me that this pumpkin scone is just as amazing. I know I’m tooting my horn but they are that good. Growing up in the UK we had scones (also known as tea biscuits) quite often because they are so easy to make and you can flavour them with just about anything you like. My mum made scones at least once a week and the basic scone recipe is probably one of the first she ever taught me. While out with a colleague at a local coffee shop that sells top of the line bakery items I purchased a coffee and one of their pumpkin scones. I truly was in another place when I was eating that pumpkin scone and I knew […]

How Distraction Theft Will Make You Their Next Win : The Saturday Weekend Review #140

DO YOU TALK TO STRANGERS?   It doesn’t matter where you are distraction theft seems to be the hottest way for thieves to steal what you own these days. It’s not a new way for thieves to get your stuff but it sure does seem as if it has been revived. I wonder if scammers are running out of ideas or maybe this is the easiest way without much effort involved. A few years ago a friend of ours told us how her daughter was almost the victim of distraction theft while studying at a local coffee shop. On the table she had her Apple iphone and wallet along with her school books like most students would. A customer who had just purchased a coffee came up to her and asked a question looking for directions. While responding to him and looking out the window pointing she caught him trying to steal her cell phone. She said to her mom, “The guy had his hand on my phone so I removed it and put it in my backpack”. He apparently laughed it off saying that it was a habit because he had an iphone as well which he pulled from […]
