Warmer weather usually means more potlucks and BBQ dinners. I love having potluck dinners because it allows us to try a new dish we may have not had before. It also means less time having to cook a big meal for everyone. Sometimes it is easy to get stuck in a rut making the same meals for every dinner. Here is a great list of 10 BBQ/Potluck recipes for you to enjoy.

Right now is the season of baking in my house. I love to make sure we have homemade baked goods over the holiday season. Over the next week, I will be baking up a storm.
One recipe that is a family favourite is Snickerdoodles. This recipe is very easy to make and makes about 36 cookies a batch. So double up it and you have more than enough to send in holiday tins for your neighbours or loved ones.
I plan on making another batch up before Christmas is here. You can stick these in freezer bags in your freezer until you want to bring them out for your family and friends.
Hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as we do. Let me know in the comments below what you think of this recipe.
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I make this heaping teaspoon so that it adds more cinnamon flavour to the cookies.)
In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with mixer for 30 seconds. Add 1 cup of sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar. Mix until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined with mixture. Mix in flour until it gets thick. Then pour in remaining flour and stir it in with a spoon. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375oF. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
When dough is ready shape dough into 1 -inch balls using a scoop. Roll balls in sugar mixture to coat the whole ball. Place 2 inches apart on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Bake 11 minutes or until edges are golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

*** If you are using for freezer meal. Don't cook in oven until you are using it for a meal. Just wrap pan in aluminum foil. Mark the top so you know when and what it is and then place in fridge to cool down before placing in freezer. You will need to cook it without the cheese. Then add the cheese the last 10 minutes. Cook at 350oF for 35 minutes. (stir a few times to make sure it is thawed.) then add cheese.
