This past month we have been visiting with our daughter Jennifer in North Carolina. Even though our little tea room back home is closed for the winter season I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting recipes to add to Grandma’s Tea Room.  

Walking into Jennifer’s kitchen, we had this conversation over a bag of oreo cookies. 

Me; Jennifer, what are you doing? Those are Oreo cookies…

Jennifer; Oh mom, you have never had Oreo Truffles before?

Me; Wait! let me get a handful of cookies before you smash them all.

Jennifer; Mom just wait, you’ll love these.

When the truffles were finished I tried one, oh the amazing taste, light, fluffy, creamy, chocolaty, dreamy, and melt in your mouth.  

Slap your mumma! good.

So we have added these truffles to the menu

I jumped onto Google and went looking for an easy way to share this easy recipe with y’ll and found kraft had one.


what you need

1 pkg. (350 g) Oreo Cookies, finely crushed, divided
1 pkg. (250 g) Philadelphia Brick Cream Cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate

make it

 REMOVE 1 Tbsp. cookie crumbs; set aside. Mix cream cheese and remaining cookie crumbs until well blended. Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls. Refrigerate 30 min.

MELT chocolate squares as directed on package. Dip balls in chocolate; place in single layer on parchment or waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.


I’ll be joining Sandi over at Rose Chintz Cottage as Tuesday is a great time for tea and friends.  


These amazing treats go wonderful with a steaming hot cup of tea!

Home is where you make it, and lately


Here we are with the little things in life that make us happy and make our home a home to come home to. Lately we have been living in our RV and it has become home. There are not many decorations hanging about but we sure didn’t take long to put up our tree and hang a few lights. These days it isn’t as cold as home in Prince Edward Island as our Winter Home is parked in the driveway of our oldest daughter Jennifer who lives in North Carolina. We are happy to be here and missed her dearly over the past two years.  Soon we will hang our stockings together and find them full of surprises. 

We spend our days visiting places, building product for the gift shop next year, sitting in the car pool line at the children’s school. Today grandpa is building a sitting bench for the children to use at the table. We feel they might be more comfortable sitting up a little higher. 

And I, I”m baking cin buns and making soup

The Fall is my favourite time of year. The leaves change colour, parking is made easy, a time to rest awhile until it all starts to come alive in the Spring. On these cold days there is nothing closer to my memories than the smell of moms soups and chilies as I run through the door after school. One of moms favourite soups to make was hamburger soup and I made it one day last week. Today for the first time I’m making a butternut squash soup, come along I hope you enjoy.


First cut the squash in half and take out the seeds and peel the outside.

Then I put 1 tbs of olive oil on a cookie sheet and cut the squash in cubes as well as fresh ginger cut into small pieces. Roasted in the oven at 350°F for about 45 minutes.

After it was golden on the edges I turned it into a pot and added chicken broth to cover.

Salt & Pepper to taste and heated it with chopped onions and added curry.

Using my blender I blended all until smooth and returned to the pot.  That is when my son the chef came into my kitchen and spooned out a little bit and tasted it just before he said, “not bad, needs a lot more curry and before it gets hot add cream to it, that will make it just right.” 

So I got out the curry, then added the cream and you know it was tasty for my first attempt at making this soup.

Bon Appétit
