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 […]

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 […]

To me, there’s just a really big difference. I have this thing against mayo, dressings, sour cream, and things of that sort. It’s not […]

BBQ Chili Shepherd’s Pie

One of my favourite ways to create new recipes is to think of classic recipes that we all know and love, and come up with different ways to reinvent them. I thought about how I incorporated a BBQ chili flavour in this lasagna, and the BBQ, beef and mashed potato thing that was going on […]

{Slow Cooker} Mongolian Beef

This is another one of those CanadiAsian recipes I love. It makes a rich, dark sauce — not too sour or too spicy, compared to the Honey Balsamic Pulled Pork or the Sweet & Spicy Coconut Grilled Chicken. The flavours are a lot more subtle in this dish. I love using my slow cooker for […]
