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. But if you could peek inside my mind throughout the day you’d see, “pizza… what can I put on pizza that I never have before? What […]

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 […]

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.

Things that are in season in other parts of North America. But certainly not in Manitoba. I mean, we take what we can get. Here in Manitoba, we’re […]

BBQ Chili Cheese Lasagna

I used to be a leftover hater. Then again, I also used to be a childless, married woman working a .75 high school teaching position. It’s funny how being a mother changes everything. Though even when I was at home on maternity leave, I’d still complain to my husband when we had so many leftovers […]

Spaghetti and Meatball Pie

Come on now. Pasta. Cheese. Tomato Sauce. Cheese. Italian Sausage Meatballs. Cheese. What’s not to love? I’m a little nutso for Italian food. Which puts me in the bad books, I guess, according to all of the anti-wheat literature springing up in the last couple of years. I refuse to rule out any foods completely […]
