Chicken Alfredo with Almond Milk

May 14, 2017

Chicken Alfredo is my most favourite pasta meal.  There’s nothing quite like it.  This is such a simple and tasty recipe, that you will want to make over and over again!  This recipe is a lighter version of regular Alfredo recipes, using Almond Milk instead of cream. It’s super easy to make and takes less than 30 minutes to make!  If I can do it, so can you!  You can…

Slow Cooker Whole Chicken

March 16, 2017

  I don’t use my slow cooker often enough. At first, I was a little intimidated by it, thinking I would somehow mess up dinner, but every time I have used it, dinner was always perfect and tasted so much better than cooking the same thing in the oven. Making slow cooker whole chicken (or almost any other meal), you can add as much or as little ingredients as you…

Easy Homemade Hamburgers

March 14, 2017

There’s nothing like a nice big juicy hamburger on a warm summer day, but most burger patties from the store are thin, dry and tasteless.  I know we all have our different tastes for burgers, but everyone I asked said they like them to be flavourful and juicy and not dry. When I started making my own burgers instead of store bought, they were always a big hit with everyone.  The recipes I…

School-Safe Wowbutter + Recipe

September 11, 2016

I was a little worried about what to put in Jayden’s school lunches as he is a very picky eater and loves his peanut butter sandwiches. He refuses to eat most things you put on sandwiches, and I knew that anything peanut is not allowed at school. So, I went on the hunt for some school-safe alternatives. We have tried a few different brands of soy spreads, and almost all…

Copycat Second Cup Italian Soda Recipe

August 18, 2016

One of my favorite parts of going to the mall is stopping at Second Cup for an Italian Soda.   It’s the perfect summer day drink. It’s refreshing, yet not too sweet like most sodas are.   You can find the Torani syrups (the same Second Cup uses!) on Amazon.ca – they have many flavors, so choose your favorite and make some Italian Soda.  You just have to start off…

One Pot -Kid Friendly- Chili Mac

August 1, 2016

I’ve been stuck in a rut of making the same dinners over and over again, and it was really boring everyone.   My boyfriend, Ryan, works long, odd hours so meals we could make for dinner and then be easily reheated in the middle of the night, or 8:00am, when he gets home would be ideal.    This recipe is the love child of a few I found online that…
