Stuffed Peppers

These are such a quick and easy meal to make! Our kids will go through phases where they will eat the pepper, other times they just eat the stuffing (which still have veggies in it!) but it seems anything I make with cheese is always a win at our table. I made these a littleContinue reading “Stuffed Peppers”

Meal Planning

Meal Planning started when I ran a home daycare. With 7 kids needing two snacks and lunch per day, plus my own family to feed dinner to, daily organization was needed! Meal planning helped ensure we had a variety of nutritional content, food wasn’t wasted and I was using my prep time wisely. Trying toContinue reading “Meal Planning”

Creamy Mac N Cheese

This has always been a house favourite. I love how easy it is to make and how versatile it is. The recipe is not an exact science, but I’m working on writing it down better! What You’ll Need Pasta. Pick something firmer, elbow macaroni, penne even fusili can work. Milk. I use 2%. You canContinue reading “Creamy Mac N Cheese”

Stuffed Shells

This was one of my favourite things my mom made for dinner growing up. It had all the components of lasagna, but I could pick and choose whether I wanted more cheese or more meat that night. Super simple to make and easy to freeze for a quick dinner option on another night. Ingredients IContinue reading “Stuffed Shells”

Pumpkin Spice Loaf

Today I was in the mood for pumpkin baking. I wanted that warm flavour you get with the fall spices. I wanted something fluffy, moist and something I could add white chocolate to. I searched Google and quickly found a recipe with great reviews. I made it, but didn’t love the way the batter lookedContinue reading “Pumpkin Spice Loaf”

Kitchen in a Box

We rent our home and when we moved every room got bigger, except the kitchen. I have grown to work within our kitchen, but oh, how few cupboards and counter space there is to work with! We finally had our cupboard repainted during covid and moved a few things around. We tried to be creativeContinue reading “Kitchen in a Box”

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Fall brings the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, apples and pumpkins. Flavours that feel like a warm hug on a cool autumn day. I was in the mood for apples and spices so started looking up recipes to match the kind of muffin I wanted to make. I came across this one https://addapinch.com/cinnamon-apple-muffins-recipe/ and decidedContinue reading “Apple Cinnamon Muffins”

French Onion Soup

I used to hate onions. I would pick them out of spaghetti sauce, and could never have imagined that I would love a soup who’s main ingredient was onion! Thank goodness my tastes matured and my love of cooking grew. The weather has been getting cooler, rain has been falling and it’s the perfect timeContinue reading “French Onion Soup”

Slow Cooker Chicken

Today’s menu plan called for Roast Chicken. I work tonight, so it will be a busier evening. The morning started cloudy with fall in the air. Perfect say for slow cooker chicken! This meal is easy to prep in the morning while you’re getting ready for work or getting the kids off to school. IContinue reading “Slow Cooker Chicken”

Coffee Corner

I LOVE my coffee, almost as much as I love my wine! We have a typical percolator, Keurig, Tassimo and French Press. Plus a tea pot and kettle. It’s a lot to keep organized, accessible and not cluttered looking. Add in 2 kids who love hot chocolate on a cold day and we to findContinue reading “Coffee Corner”
