The Best Oven-Fried Chicken

Maybe this surprises you, but I can’t remember the last time I actually ate fried chicken. Maybe for some of you that seems really sad. It’s honestly not something I really long for. That bloated, grease-all-over-my-face kind of feeling after some good ol’ KFC. If I’m going for grease, I’d rather it be a big […]

Easy Homemade Hamburger Helper

I know Hamburger Helper isn’t that classy. But sometimes we just like things that are easy and taste good. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I can’t honestly remember the last time I purchased or prepared a box of Hamburger Helper. It’s not that I never have, it’s just that with awesome […]

Spaghetti and Garlic Toast Grilled Cheese

I just don’t know what to say about this, other than to beg you to make extra spaghetti and meat sauce next time just so you can make these sandwiches with the leftovers.

Pineapple Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce

I’m all about making my own condiments. I’m not all about making my own condiments all the time. I just don’t have time for that. Sometimes, it’s just nice to have something with a little more personality! There are tons of great ketchups and barbecue sauces out there, but sometimes I like to spice things […]

{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 […]
