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 […]

Tuna Tetrazzini


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 […]

Pizza Soup


What better way to enjoy soup than to add your favourite pizza ingredients to it? Make it in the crockpot or just simmer on the stovetop. The leftovers are great for lunches too. 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1 onion, chopped 2 cloves minced garlic 2 cups sliced mushrooms 1 tsp dried oregano 1/4 tsp each […]

Cheesy Ham and Broccoli Casserole


Basically this is macaroni and cheese with broccoli and ham added in to make a more complete meal. It’s real comfort food. 2 cups uncooked macaroni 1/4 cup butter or margarine 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 1/4 tsp ground mustard 1/4 tsp worcestershire sauce 2 cups milk 2 cups shredded […]

Turkey Kielbasa and Lentil Stew


Here’s another great crockpot recipe- a working mom’s best friend! Kielbasa (otherwise known as Polish or Ukrainian sausage) gives this dish a wonderful smokey flavour, and the lentils add a hearty texture. It’s one tasty way to add legumes to your diet. By using the turkey version of this sausage, you cut out some of […]

Impossible Pumpkin Pie


My mom used to make Impossible Pie made with coconut. She just threw all the ingredients in the blender, poured it into a pie dish, baked it, and magically it made it’s own crust. I thought this was a pretty neat idea, so I tried out this pumpkin pie version. It has all the goodness […]

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 […]

Apple and Cheddar Snacking Cake


I just love the combination of apple and cheddar in this cake. It’s packed full of fruit, cheese, and oats, so it makes a nice healthy snack (or even breakfast or lunch) for the whole family. 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 […]

Belgian Beef Stew


Alright, I know that beer doesn’t sound very kid-friendly, but the alcohol evaporates while cooking, really! Of course, you can finish off the rest of the can or bottle of beer yourself if you’d like; that’s a nice perk of this meal. It’s a crockpot recipe, which is especially handy if you’re out all day […]
