PB&J Buns

This is the second way that I used up my triple batch of bun dough. I have to admit, I’m not a PB&J lover. But I know a lot of people are, including my husband and toddler, so with one recipe’s worth of bun dough I made some freezer-ready PB&J. I know it’s not that […]

Pizza Buns

So I’ve been busy gearing up for back to school. Back to school for us is a crazy time of year, as it means that my holidays (as a teacher) are over, our toddler is starting a new day care again, and my husband is still gone 14 hours of the day at least 5 […]

Those “I’m-in-meat-cheese-and-potato-heaven” […]

Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese

Words cannot express the mind-blowing flavour of this sandwich. But for you, I’ll give it my best shot. I discovered that bacon jam was a real thing on Pinterest quite some time ago. I tucked it safely away on my Condiments board for a day when I would actually have time to spend making something […]

The ULTIMATE Baked Fry

So I wanted to try out a fry seasoning/baking method combination that I was pretty sure was going to give me the best fries I ever tasted. To keep up the facade that I’m a full-grown adult, I made ribs to go alongside. I ate only fries. These fries. Oh man. These are good. I […]
