Lemon-Soy Chicken and Rice

This is one of my favourite meals that my mom used to make when I was a kid. It’s one of the first recipes I remember learning from her, and I still use it quite often for a nice Sunday dinner. It’s so easy to make, but tastes like you put a lot more effort […]

A creamy, cheesy tuna cassserole that’s ready in no time. It’s my go-to recipe when I can’t think of anything else to make! 1 tsp olive oil 1/2 finely chopped onion 1 finely chopped stalk of celery 4 cups rotini 1 can mushroom soup 1/2 can of milk 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese […]

By using the turkey version of this sausage, you cut out some of […]

But I’m a little embarrassed about the photo:   Oh gosh. Sorry, I just had to update it! It just goes to show that […]

Balsamic Maple Pork Tenderloin

Meat is usually one of the toughest things to get kids to eat, but you might just discover they enjoy this roasted pork tenderloin topped with a rich-colored sweet and tangy sauce. It’s a very tender meat, as long as you’re careful not to overcook it, so kids will find it easier to chew than […]

Topping:2/3 cup quick oats1/4 cup brown sugar1 tsp cinnamon2 tbsp melted margarine Batter:1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour1 cup quick […]
