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 […]

Mint Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Don’t underestimate them. They might look a little Plain Jane on the outside but inside they’re stuffed with a mint chocolate truffle that stays rich and creamy long after these cookies are baked. Everyone loves food with a filling, right? Think Boston Cream doughnuts. (Yes, doughnuts. I refuse to jump on the donut train. It’s also […]

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.

It’s just too much somedays. I was going to make some biscuits today. Just regular, flour/butter/milk biscuits to go with  a pot of […]

Cannoli Crepes

What is the best thing you’ve ever eaten?   My husband and I went to Europe for 3 weeks (France, Spain, Italy, Monaco, Croatia) in the summer 3 years ago. It was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. There are probably people who hesitate to spend a good amount of money on experiences. […]

Perogy Rolls

I’m kind of obsessed with perogies. Pierogi, if you’re feeling particularly Ukrainian today.   If I had no conscience, I could eat them almost every day. Being that they’re made of cheesy, bacony mashed potatoes stuffed inside soft dough and covered in other equally delicious things, I try to restrain myself a little. Just a […]
