10-Minute BBQ Ham Sandwiches

We love, love, love this recipe. I wish I could remember where I found this recipe…. possibly in a Taste of Home magazine of my mom’s. We have been enjoying this recipe for years, whenever I can find some good deli ham on sale. It is such an easy recipe! And the sauce is perfectly […]

Absolutely the Best Brownies Ever

It’s time I shared this recipe with you. I have made these brownies countless times. They go back to my University days when I found all my recipes on Allrecipes.com and had no knowledge of food blogging. On a whim, I decided to try this brownie recipe. Best decision ever. I mean, how do you […]

As I mentioned when I shared my Pineapple Lemonade Fruit Dip, I am making more of an effort to eat healthy now that I’m expecting our second child. I find at the beginning of my pregnancies […]

{Slow Cooker} Mongolian Beef

This is another one of those CanadiAsian recipes I love. It makes a rich, dark sauce — not too sour or too spicy, compared to the Honey Balsamic Pulled Pork or the Sweet & Spicy Coconut Grilled Chicken. The flavours are a lot more subtle in this dish. I love using my slow cooker for […]

Pineapple Lemonade Fruit Dip

True story: I had decided I was going to make this incredibly naughty, over-the-top chocolate dessert for you guys, and when I went to my fridge for the butter, I only had two sticks. I needed at least twice that much. So I settled for a fruit dip like a somewhat responsible adult. I’m not […]
