Quinoa Summer Salad

When the weather gets hot, I find we like to eat lighter meals. Trying to find meals that aren’t too heavy, but still pack a lot of nutrition can be harder, especially when we’d rather be playing in the backyard or park with the kids than cooking. Quinoa is such a healthy grain, full ofContinue reading “Quinoa Summer Salad”

Sweet and Sour Chicken

When I’m deciding on our weekly meal plans, it’s part what food needs to be used up, part what mood I’m in and last what ingredients I see that I can “taste” on my tongue. I see a spice, condiment, produce item and all of a sudden can start to taste what I want toContinue reading “Sweet and Sour Chicken”

Cinnamon Buns

Another thing we love to make with frozen bread dough is Cinnamon Buns. The dough is soft and fluffy and with enough butter and brown sugar you get an ooey, gooey filling with a bit of carmelization. These are super simple to make and a family favourite! You will need your frozen dough, brown sugarContinue reading “Cinnamon Buns”

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”

Linen Closet ReRoll

I read a post on #gocleango about towel folding and on it rolling towels was mentioned. I have rolled towels for Girl Guide Camp, vacations, beach days, but never had I thought of rolling them for our linen closet. It was like a light went off. I had the day off, so what better timeContinue reading “Linen Closet ReRoll”

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”
