Mexican Shepherd’s Pie and a $125 cash GIVEAWAY!

Because any meal a kid can eat with chips is a winner for sure. Actually, I like eating my meal with chips for utensils just as much (or more) than my kid does. It’s just fun, right? And you get to eat chips for supper! As I’ve said only about a hundred times before, I […]

BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese

I’m all about combining favourites. I mean, adding two already delicious things together can only make it better, right? Obviously, there are exceptions. Only about a million of them.

I hope you’re not mad. Sometimes I just love recipes that aren’t really recipes. So, if you don’t know this yet, I’m not a food blogger by day. I’m actually a high school  teacher, though of course from the end of June until the beginning of summer, I get to be just a mom and […]

I’ve included my spaghetti recipe first, to make earlier in the week, with lots of leftovers for these sandwiches later on. Feel […]

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 […]

Dill Pickle Soup

I know what you’re thinking. This is just some crazy pregnancy craving that no one else would actually enjoy. That’s not true. I will admit, I was skeptical, too. But when a friend posted on Facebook that she had made Dill Pickle Soup, I thought, “that’s too crazy not to try it.” So I did […]
