Merry Christmas from Bill and Amy’s kitchen

Today we gather with both our immediate families. At my moms for brunch with my sisters and brothers-in-love, then later at Bills brother’s home for dinner with their family and Bill’s parents.

We’re learning how to cook with gas. 😁

I ruined a double batch of cranberry sauce last night, burned to 💩. So we have a fresh batch on the stove now that will be served with a double cream Brie.

And 3 quiches in the oven

I cooked up all the ingredients last night, potatoes, mushrooms, sausage, onions, peppers.. and assembled them first thing this morning. We have a 🥦 🥓 quiche, sausage, onion and red pepper, and a mushroom spinach tomato frittata.

Bill cracked all 27 eggs 🥚 and beat them up for me.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.. whoever you’re with.. we pray you have a blessed Christmas.

Much Love from Bill and Amy’s kitchen.

Bill (Guillermo 'cause he likes pretending he knows Spanish) and I (Amy) have been married since Sept 2005. We live in Southern Ontario, Canada - Niagara Peninsula in fact, smack dab between 2 of the Great Lakes. We love God, our family, our church family, and making each other laugh. (ergo the profile pic, he decided to make our photographer laugh by throwing a leg up on me just before the shutter clicked, which made ME laugh) When we married, I told Bill: "I don't know how to cook" but he had faith in me. So 15 years later, I'm still learning, and having fun. I've never (in my whole life) cooked a whole bird, chicken, turkey or otherwise. I've never roasted a beef, other than in a crockpot on low for 8 hrs. I like trying to find healthy & easy recipes and then I rarely follow them. I don't enjoy recipes that take hours or intricate steps. I have a special fondness for the Podleski sisters, writers/creators of the Looney Spoons, Crazy Plates and Yum/Yummer cookbooks. In 2018 we suddenly decided to rip our small house apart from stem to stern, moving out for 4.5 months while the house was demolished inside and out, and then rebuilt with an addition. If you go back in the archives to July-Dec 2018 you can follow that story. It's made our house open and so much more conducive to entertaining, small groups and large. It's given us the kitchen I've dreamed of to create and learn in. We feel incredibly blessed to be able to write about our journey, our faith in God and some fun recipes along the way. Thanks for joining us.
