Yogurt Parfait Breakfast Popsicles

On-the-Go Breakfasts: Yogurt Parfait Breakfast Popsicles

I’m back today with another grab-and-go breakfast idea for those crazy first mornings back to school.  It’s tough getting back into the routine of school mornings, so I’m hoping I can at least make breakfast a little easier for you. As I mentioned in my post yesterday (Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Overnight Oats) it’s hard to get my boys to […]

Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Overnight Oats

Grab-and-Go Breakfast: Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Overnight Oats

Going back to school after a long and lazy summer is hard.  I’m not looking forward to dragging my kids out of bed when they’ve been so used to sleeping in and getting up slowly for the last couple months. What makes it even harder is that they don’t usually want to eat breakfast first thing […]

Coconut Adobo Macaroni Salad

Coconut Adobo Macaroni Salad

Summer is starting to wind down (booo), but there’s still time to have a few more barbecues and picnics this season before fall comes.  When I’m looking for a good side-dish, I love a good macaroni salad. It goes well with just about any barbecued meats, hot dogs, hamburgers, or sandwiches. The good old standard macaroni salad is great, […]

The Canning Kitchen: Cookbook Review and Giveaway


I remember when I was a little girl, my mother did a lot of canning. I remember jars of juicy peaches, crunchy dill pickles, and endless varieties of jams. I remember the huge canning pot rumbling with boiling water on the stovetop, and the satisfying sound of popping lids on the jars as they cooled on the counter. Best of all, […]

Chocolate Banana Loaf

This Chocolate Banana Loaf is to die for!

I know this isn’t the first time I’ve posted a recipe with chocolate and bananas (like Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies, Chocolate Banana Ice Cream, and Banana Maple Brownies) but I just can’t help myself! It’s one of my favourite flavour combinations. Bananas make this loaf nice and moist, while the cocoa powder makes it a little more […]

Crockpot Caramelized Onions

Make perfect Caramelized Onions in your crockpot! They're amazing in grilled cheese sandwiches. Freeze them in muffin tins, so you can always keep some on hand.

Caramelized onions are pretty fantastic. They add a perfect combination of sweet and savory flavours to just about anything, like quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza, eggs, grilled meat, pasta sauce, hamburgers…whatever you want! They take your food to a whole new level. But they can be tricky and time-consuming to make, because they usually require a lot of […]

Mango Chili Pork Tenderloin

Mango Chili Pork Tenderloin with Mango Salsa#PuloCuisine

  Grilling season is upon us, and I’d love nothing more than to sit out in the sun with a cold drink while grilling up a tasty dinner for us. Unfortunately, we have no deck. Tony tore it down last spring, with plans to replace it over the summer, but due to unforeseen circumstances — […]
