Raspberry Oreo Coffee Creamer

Raspberry Oreo Coffee Creamer

Unless I’m battling morning sickness in my first few months of pregnancy, it’s very rare to see me in the morning without a cup of coffee nearby. It’s such a common sight at my house that my toddler can already say “coffee” as she points to my mug. I’m sure I’m not the only one out […]

Minecraft Birthday Party Ideas

Minecraft birthday party ideas

Every year I say I’m not going to go too crazy with birthday parties, but sometimes I just can’t seem to help myself. This year, Cole asked if he could have a Minecraft party for his 8th birthday. My initial thought was, “Alright!! This is going to be easy – he’ll have a few friends over to […]

Sometimes You Just Need a Tummy Rub {Giveaway}

Baroness Chocolates

Usually after dinner I crave a little something sweet. My favourite thing to have is a little nibble of good quality dark chocolate to satisfy my after-dinner cravings.  We’re all big chocolate lovers in this house. Tony and I love dark chocolate, while the kids prefer milk chocolate. So when Baroness Chocolates offered to send us some of their chocolate bars […]

Chicken and Mango Flatbread #Pulocuisine

CHicken and Mango Flatbread

You may recognize this flatbread, because I gave you a glimpse of it in my post about the Get Cooking Challenge, where I mentioned that I got a new toaster oven. This flatbread – or pizza, or whatever you want to call it – was one of the first things I tried in it. Wow, was it ever […]

Turkey Enchilada Pasta

Turkey Enchilada Pasta

Mexican food has got to be my favourite food.  No wait – make that Italian food – because I love pasta so much. It’s just too hard to decide…or it was, until I had this enchilada pasta. It’s the best of both worlds! This is a great weeknight one-pot meal. It’s easy to make, and with turkey and shredded […]

Join the Get Cooking Challenge


Sometimes I get stuck in a rut with meals.  You might think from reading my blog that I cook creative and healthy meals every day without blinking an eye, but that’s just not reality.  There are plenty of times when I can’t think of anything interesting to make, or I don’t really feel like cooking, so I end up turning to convenience food that […]

Confessions of a 1st Time Blood Donor


This is a little hard for me to admit, but I’ve never donated blood before and I don’t even have a good reason for not donating.  It was one of those things that I kept intending to do, but never got around to actually booking an appointment and doing it.  I’ve always been a generally anxious person, […]

51 Moments

51 Moments Family Photo

I’ve been thinking about getting family photos done for a while now. The last time we had a professional photo taken of the whole family, there were only four of us (not counting the one in my belly). I’d love an updated photo of all five family members, without one of the kids looking the other way, […]
