Rum Balls


3 1/4 cups Crushed cookies (I use crushed gingerbread cookies)

3/4 cup Icing sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

3 Tbsp. corn syrup

1/2 cup rum (or your favourite booze)


In a large bowl, stir crushed cookies, icing sugar and cocoa.  Blend in syrup and rum.  Shape into balls and roll in additional confectioners sugar (or cocoa, or dip in melted chocolate, oir sweetened coconut).  Store for yourself or serve to family and friends.

Pumpkin puree



4 pie pumpkins (2-5lb each)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. all spice

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp. cloves

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Wash and cut pumpkins in half.  Clean/scoop seeds and save for snacks later.

Place pumpkin halves face down on parchment lined sheet pans.  Bake until soft (about 1/2 hour).  Remove from oven and cool.

When cool, remove outer skin and blend pumpkin pulp with sugar and spices in a food processor or blender until smooth.  Use in your favourite recipes (pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake...).

Simple vegetable stock

Lots of veggie bits (I keep a large sealed container in the fridge/freezer that I toss all of the parts of the veggies that I don't eat, ie: tops and seeds from red peppers, skins from onions, ends of zucchini...)

2 medium onions

Water to cover veggies in pot

1 can tomatoes or 6 ripe tomatoes

2 Tablespoons olive oil

good pinch salt

After you've collected enough veggie bits (about 6 cups or more) toss in a large pot with onions coarsely chopped and fill pot with water until veggies are just submerged.  Bring to a boil and then add tomatoes, olive oil.  Salt to taste at the end.

Continue to let boil until reduced by 1/3

Strain, discard veggie matter and let liquid cool.  When cool put stock in ice cube trays/old yoghurt containers and freeze.  Use to bring out flavour in pastas, use as a base for soup or deglaze a pan meat.


Pizza dough.



2 cups tepid water

1/4 cup vegetable oil

610 grams Frankie's Bread Mix

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Beat until a sticky dough forms.  Then place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and spread with wetted fingers (or spread it out with plasticwrap on top).  Add your toppings and bake in an oven at 375F until golden brown and bubbly on top.

Also makes a great focaccia!
