Asian Noodle Soup

Asian Noodle Soup (Instant Pot) A couple months ago, I finally bought one of those Instant Pots that everyone is raving about. When we were doing our kitchen renovations, I was a little overzealous in purging kitchen items, and I ended up accidentally getting rid of the lid of my slow-cooker. It wasn’t a great […]

Blueberry Grunt

This summer, my boys went all the way to the other side of the country, to Newfoundland, on a vacation with my mom and dad. They’ve never been that far away without us before. It was really weird not having them around, but they had such an amazing experience. They got to meet a whole […]

Tomato and Bacon Gnocchi Skillet Dinner

This recipe is a spin on an old family favourite, Gnocchi and Chickpea Skillet Dinner. I love to combine gnocchi in a skillet with whatever veggies and protein I happen to have on hand. In the original post, it happened to be chickpeas, mushrooms, broccoli, and a little bit of turkey bacon. This time I […]
