Hey! Thanks for having a look at the recipes. You won’t find too many fancy dishes here, but oh, Lord,  what is here is scrumptiously delicious. Many  recipes take very little time to prepare and can be on the table pretty quickly.

 I’m very much a fly by the seat of my pants kind of gal when it comes to cooking, and love to play around with ingredients and seasonings alot. By all means, try my recipes as they are. You’ll love them.  But don’t listen to me if I tell you to use almonds and you prefer walnuts. And never mind if I want you to use peppers and you hate those suckers. Throw in your veggie of choice instead. Have fun, play around, and I’d love to hear from you if you give any a try.

You’ll notice that many of the recipes here don’t feature any photos, and I’m sorry about that. In January I’ll begin photographing each and every recipe on The Newfoundland Kitchen and will have complete photos for all new recipes posted in the future.

In the meantime, if there’s a recipe you’re looking for, just let me know and I’ll see what I can do for you.  Thanks, and happy cooking.

  6. hi, my grammie used to make a smoked but and cabbage in a broth with potatoes and carrots , onions but towards the end she would add a dough with raisins in a cheese cloth. It picked up the smoky ham flavour and she called it a duff or wet bread, it was so yummy. Does anyone have a similar recipe? Thanks, I would be so very grateful. Marie

  7. Hey all. I hope somone can help me out, as it’s starting to get late to be making a fruitcake for this Christmas, so I have to shake a leg! Can someone give me the recipie for Smallwood Christmas Cake? It’s a dark fruitcake, very rich and delicious.
    I remember the ingredients…spices, fruit and so on, but not the proportions of flour, sugar and butter, though I remember it has 3 eggs. I would be very grateful if someone could help me out.


  8. I too am looking for a good fruitcake recipe. I used to have a recipe for Smallwood Fruitcake I think it was…. that one had around a dozen eggs. I’ve not made a dark fruitcake in awhile and cannot find my old recipe. Anyone have a moist dark fruitcake recipe?

  10. My husbands grandparents were from Newfoundland & his grandmother made a dish they ate for breakfast called brews, spelling is probably wrong & I loved it , my husband never liked it. The older I get I want to have some!! Trouble is I never got the recipe & now my 90 yr old mother in law can only remember it was made with hard tack, bacon, onion and some kind of fish. Can you help?
    Thanks a million,

  11. Looking for the recipe for Queen Ann Squares,can anyone help me

  12. Does anyone have a recipe for Lad in a bag

  13. your talking about fish -n- brews(spelling) i hate the brews but all you do is soak it in water until it gets soggy unually over night and then you need pork fat cut in little tiny pieces called scrunchins(it wasnt bacon) and then when the fish is boiled you can mix it all together or eat it seperate but the scrunchins usually go over the brews

  14. Sift together:

    2 1/2 cups flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 tsp baking powder


    1 cup blueberries


    1/3 cup melted butter
    ¾ cup milk
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Mix all together with a wooden spoon just until a soft dough is formed. Put dough into a pudding steamer or a wet heavy cotton pudding bag, tying the bag with a piece of butcher string but leaving about an inch of slack at the top to allow the pudding to expand. Boil for approximately one and a half hours.

    Note: you can substitute the sugar for ½ cup molasses and adjust the milk accordingly to form the proper consistency of the dough. Spices like 1 tsp cinnamon and ½ tsp allspice can also be added as variations

    Traditionally served with a roast dinner or Jiggs Dinner but also served as a dessert with a rum butter sauce.
