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 […]

Avalanche Granola Bars

So I ate the last granola bar this morning at work. Not a big deal, but it means I must make more immediately. We always have these granola bars on hand because they don’t need to be refrigerated or frozen and can last on the shelf for weeks (or maybe longer — but we never […]

BBQ Beef and Cheddar Poutine

Sometimes I just need a little man food. Maybe we all need a bit of man food sometimes. This is one of those things you make that causes your man (or maybe your woman!) to give you those eyes across the table as he takes his first bite. I know my husband did.

No-Fail (3 Ingredient) Roasted Potatoes

I’m just a potato kind of girl. My parents were potato kind of people so I guess that’s where I get it. I know in 2014 I’m supposed to be swapping white potatoes for sweet potatoes, or quinoa, or bulgur, or lentils, but this girl just isn’t there yet. I’ll have you know, aside from […]

Peanut Butter Granola Bars

I’m all about cooking with kids. I desperately hope I can teach my daughter to enjoy and appreciate food the way I do, and so I encourage her involvement in the kitchen on a regular (I’d even say daily) basis. Not only do I want her to share this passion of mine so that it […]
