Japanese Style Teriyaki Sauce

A while ago I was searching for a recipe to make homemade teriyaki sauce. I found a few, but this one was the simplest and it allowed for the addition of orange, ginger, chilies, or other similar flavourings. I have used this recipe a dozen times or so and I haven't been disappointed.

Bud Bayly's Baked Beans

This recipe dates back to when my mother was at university. There was a fella there named Bud Bayly and he, apparently, baked a lot of beans. This recipe is a molasses based not maple based. Although this recipe is meant to use the oven, I am sure a slow cooker on low would do the same trick.

Dark Fruit Cake (Mom Peterson's Recipe)

This is another of the recipes from my mother's old cookbook. This one notes that it came from her mother. Not sure of its origin before that. This will make the Dark Fruit Cake that I use to have over Christmas when I was growing up. My mom use to soak it in brandy for almost a month before Christmas.

Hot Chocolate Sauce

Another of mom's recipes with no notes on origin. Although I think I remember this from being a kid.
