It’s summer and that means that almost everything in our household gets made on the barbecue. There’s nothing better than doing 15 minutes of prep inside and then moving out to the patio and just sitting and relaxing outside while cooking up your dinner. Well, I don’t think there’s much better. It really is the little things sometimes.
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.
Last night I decided to reorganize my whole kitchen. I went grocery shopping and came to the shocking realization that nothing in my kitchen was in the right place and I HAD to reorganize it. I switched up my whole pantry, cleaned out my fridge and my freezer, the whole nine yards. Afterwards, when everything was finally in its place, I still had to make dinner and I promised myself that I wouldn’t order a pizza (have I mentioned how much I LOVE pizza?). So I made this. It’s easy, it’s healthy and it’s delicious. Make it tonight.
This was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. I made the biggest pasta bake and it was so delicious that I really didn’t mind having it for dinner three nights in a row. You know what that means? That means I didn’t have to cook at all two nights this week. That’s a big deal. Not that cooking is a huge hardship but it’s nice to know that there is a well rounded homemade meal waiting for you when you get home and all you have to do is heat it up.
Hello again and welcome back! So happy that you’ve decided to stop by. I hope you came hungry because this recipe is sure to please. I’m probably going to be making it again today, I liked it so much. Hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do!
So, remember how I was talking about the Eggnog Doughnut Cookies being a great, light alternative to all the heavy Christmas goodies? Well, this is exactly what I was talking about. These bars are so rich and delicious that by the time I finished “testing” them I was so full! I had to, though, for your benefit. I couldn’t post a recipe that wasn’t 100% delicious and this one really is. I’d go as far as to say that it’s my favourite baked good of the holiday season. I could eat this all day long, but then I’d weigh 300 pounds. Sigh.
Christmas Eve is 10 days away! Can you believe it? I can’t. It’s come so quickly this year. It’s funny how so much thought and preparation can be put into a day or an event and then before you know it, it’s come and gone. But this is life. And, luckily, Christmas comes every year! I just finished ALL my baking over the weekend and it turned out so well! I like to give a small tin of baked good to close friends and family for Christmas gifts so be prepared for a couple sweet recipes coming your way this week and maybe even a couple next week leading up to the big day.
So, up here in Canada the weather is getting a little colder, the days are getting shorter and the desire to do anything at all when I get home from work is getting smaller and smaller. You know what that means? It means that it’s time to bust out the slow cooker, the best small kitchen appliance of all time! Nothing is quite as satisfying as coming home after a long day (especially when it’s dark and cold outside) to the smell of deliciousness and your food being hot and ready for eating. Just writing this makes me happy and what I made in my slow cooker this week made me even happier. Pot roast. Two of the most delicious words of all time.
Hello lovelies! I know the recipes have been a little lacking lately so today you get two for the price of one. Lucky devils. What brings about this joyous news? you may ask. Well, it’s my unwavering love for pesto. Remember when we made all that pesto and froze it into an ice cube tray? If not, check out that post here. In that post I promised to give you some ideas on how to use that pesto. Albeit, that was at the end of June and it is now November but better late than never I always say!
