Crunchy Chickpea Summer Salad

I know, I know, I know… I said I was back on track and then I went a week without putting up a post. It is so hard to get back into a routine once you’ve let it slide. I feel like a broken record but I really am (mostly) back on track now and I actually have A LOT of projects lined up. I’ve been going to yard sales (my favourite!) and I have lots of stuff to show you so please keep posted! Now, all that aside, I’ve also been whipping up some to-die-for recipes (and they’re healthy!) that you are going to love. This just so happens to be one of my recent favourites. chickpeasalad

Sweet Potato Chilli Fries

Howdy there and happy Saturday! You know that they say about Saturday… It’s all right for fighting and I’ve been waiting such a long time. After all that waiting and fighting you’re going to need some nourishment. You might want to jump to something unhealthy (I usually want to) so here’s a healthier spin on a delicious classic using recipes that we’ve already done.

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Actifry Kung Pao Shrimp Stir Fry

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Actifry Kung Pao Shrimp Stir Fry

Wow, is this title a mouthful or what? But, lucky for you, it’s also a mouthful of deliciousness. I was really feeling like having some Asian cuisine but I didn’t have the time to stand over the stove making a stir fry.

Actifry Sweet Potato Fries

I needed to try something new in my Actifry, and oddly enough, I had never tried fries so I decided why the heck not? It’s funny because one of the main things the Actifry is know for is fries, but it wasn’t something that I had ever tried. And if we’re trying fries, why not sweet potato fries?

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Actifry Chicken Pasta & Slow Cooker Fail

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Actifry Chicken Pasta & Slow Cooker Fail

The Actifry strikes again! I actually scrounged this recipe up with some things I found around the kitchen last month and LOVED it but I was in the midst of the Dining Room Set Makeover and I somehow forgot to do a post about it. Shame on me. Well, here it is! It was worth the wait, trust me.

Actifry Potatoes

Actifry Potatoes

Lately, I’ve been popping everything in the Actifry and I haven’t been disappointed yet. It’s like it’s competing with my slow cooker for my affections. They probably have duels when I’m at work. The adult version of Toy Story is when all the kitchen appliances come out and have adventures while we’re away. My slow cooker is Woody and the Actifry is Buzz. I better not come home one day and one of them is missing.

These potatoes are a-freaking-mazing.  Perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I don’t think I’ll ever bake them again. And literally half the time! Read more

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Actifry Mexican Chicken

Another easy peasy Actifry recipe. I am falling more and more in love with this machine every day. I was considering what to make for dinner and didn’t really want to stand over the oven because I was busy multi-tasking and then… blam0! It hit me. Why not pop the food in the Actifry?! Brilliant.

T-fal Actifry Review and Chicken Wing Recipe

T-fal Actifry Review and Chicken Wing Recipe

20150129_213048I LOVE MY ACTIFRY SO MUCH! After my slow cooker, I would have to say that this is my favourite small kitchen appliance. It is so easy to use and is a significantly healthier alternative to deep frying as only uses 1 tablespoon of oil max. I also love how easy it is to clean. The portion that the food is cooked in is a removable, ceramic-coated, non-stick pan that washes very easily and the lid comes apart from the machine with the push 20150129_214851of a button for easy washing as well. The only thing that takes a little elbow grease is the automatic stirring paddle, which has a couple small crevasses that are tricky to get into.  Read more
