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!

Lazy Rainy Day Casserole

It might be wet and gloomy outside but it smells great inside the house when this is in the oven!

375 g Octoberfest sausages, or your favourite sausage
1  1/2 lbs potatoes, large chunks
2 onions, quartered
3-4 carrots, thick sliced
1/2 red pepper, thick sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsps olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Mix olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and chicken broth together and toss with vegetables. Grease a 13 X 9" baking dish and place the veggies in. Loosely cover dish with foil and bake in a 450F oven for 40-45 minutes or until veggies are fork tender.

While they are doing their thing cook the sausages as per package directions. These took 12 minutes to boil, then brown in a frying pan. Cut in half, toss with balsamic and add to the veggies. Return to the oven, uncovered for 15 minutes.

Toss the mixture coating with pan juices and bake a final 10 minutes.
