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!

Meat Pie (Tourtière à la Québecoise)
This is an adaptation of the tourtière recipe in my tattered old (read well used and loved) Five Roses cookbook.
1 Double Crust Pastry
1 1b. (total) ground veal, pork and beef
1 medium onion, minced
1/4 cup water
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp savory
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Prepare pastry and set aside. Combine all ingredients together in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until meat has lost its pink colour, but is still moist, check seasonings. Cool and place mixture into uncooked pie shell. Cover with top crust and seal.
Bake in 425F oven for 25 minutes until browned.
Baked tourtière may be frozen.
