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 […]

Shortcut Bibimbap

As I was photographing this Shortcut Bibimbap recipe, the kids came up to me to ask what I was making. “Bibibap — Bibimpap, ” I stuttered.  “I mean Bibimbap!” They just stared at me with puzzled looks on their faces, and walked away. It’s a hard word to say (for me anyway), but trust me, it’s easy to make. My […]

Nachos for Dinner

You might think nachos are just for snacking and can’t be very healthy for dinner, but with a few tweaks, you can create a nutritious meal out of nachos. Best of all, this is one meal your kids will actually beg to eat!  Mine sure do. You should see how their eyes light up when […]

20 Beautiful Burgers to Make This Summer

It’s summer! So many burgers to make, so little time.  Luckily, you can easily enjoy burgers all year round, but they’re especially good when the weather is hot and the barbeque is fired up. My kids love when we have a burger night, because they like to build their very own burgers just the way they […]

They tend to prefer simple meals rather than complicated culinary masterpieces, which works out well for me when trying to prepare a quick meal that everyone will like. Basically anything with meat and potatoes is sure to win them over. Cottage pie combines the two […]

Ideas for Homemade Pizza Night

I’d have to say that pizza is my most favourite food. There are just so many possibilities for toppings and crusts that it never gets boring. If you have picky eaters like mine, you can let them build their own pizzas so everyone gets exactly what they want. I like to include a pizza night […]

You-Choose Chili

I’ve put a great deal of thought into meal-planning over the years, and I’ve come to the conclusion that (for me, at least) the best method of meal-planning is to create a list of meal ideas. They’re not necessarily recipes, just general guidelines on what to make for dinner each night. So Monday might be […]

Curried Cauliflower Lentil Soup

Yes, another soup recipe! Clearly, I’m obsessed with soup lately. I’m sorry, I can’t help it. There’s just something so comforting about a big bowl of hot soup. I’ve been experimenting with this particular recipe for Curried Cauliflower Lentil Soup for a while now, testing it until I perfected it. Although my kids may disagree, I think I’ve come up […]

The Best Meatball Subs

OK, now I don’t want to start any fights over whose meatballs subs are actually the best. You may say your Grandma’s are the best, or the ones at your favourite restaurant down the street are the best, and who am I to argue with that? All I mean when I say these are “The […]

Welcome! I’m Megan.
