Lemon Iced Tea Milkshakes

So, quite some time ago I was in high school. And I had friends who were also in high school. I was at the house of one of these friends in my high school years and she introduced me to something that would be life-changing. Iced tea powder on vanilla ice cream. I know it […]

Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

I’m all about yeast dough. But there are somedays you just don’t have the time or energy for that. The proofing, the kneading, the rising, the rolling, the rising…. all the waiting.

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 […]

Lemon Berry Cheesecake Trifles

I just love summer. I think that’s one of the best parts of being a teacher. Especially since, in Manitoba, we might only get 4 months of nice, warm weather to begin with. It’s been hard waking up the last few weeks. With the sunshine pouring in our windows (and our drapes don’t block out […]
