Sour cream is something I always have in my fridge. I usually use it as a substitute for heavy cream when I cook such as in Daal Makhani or pasta. I have also used sour cream in brownies and ice cream. Today I'm sharing a baked treat that uses sour cream. These Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts are made using Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream. My usual sour cream is Gay Lea Light Sour Cream and it's always worked wonderfully whenever I use it. I was excited to see how Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream would differ. When I opened up the container, I immediately noticed how thick it was. The flavour was excellent. I knew whatever I baked with this would turn out to be wonderful.

I love potatoes! I love potatoes so much that I add them to just about most curries I make. Usually when I make Khorma, my plate will have more potatoes than meat. So when I got the opportunity to come up with a recipe using The Little Potato Company's Creamer Potatoes I jumped on the chance.

Recently I shared with you a recipe for Syrian Kebobs which we enjoyed with some Herbed Hummus Dip. Today I'm sharing the recipe for the Herbed Hummus Dip. I found the recipe in an old Canadian Living magazine. This dip is different from a traditional hummus. There is no tahini in it which is something I really liked because it makes it school-friendly. We aren't allowed to send lunches that have sesame seeds since one of the students is allergic. This Herbed Hummus Dip is very quick to put together. It is great not only for dipping but as a spread in a sandwich or wrap.

Daal Makhani is one of my favourite lentil dishes. I've been making this recipe for over 2 years. It's taken me so long to post because I have had the most difficult time photographing it. Every time I took a picture it just looked so unappetizing. This past week I finally got a picture I am happy with!

It's the last Monday of the month which means it's time for The Secret Recipe Club reveal! This month I was assigned Oh! You Cook! written by Dena. Dena blogs about Kosher recipes and has written The Everything Kosher Slow Cooker Cookbook. As I was browsing Dena's blog I knew this was an assignment I was really going to enjoy. I've pinned several recipes that I plan to try out. These Syrian Kebobs are actually the third recipe I've made from Dena's blog. The only reason they got blogged about is because there were leftovers. I have already made Baked Tilapia with "Crab Meat" Stuffing and Garlic Cheddar Biscuits.
