    Sticky Sweet French Toast

    Hey, Readers! Being at home with my kids during summer vacation makes me want to loosen the reigns a bit where food is concerned. I let them eat foods with more sugar in the mornings from time to time, and it is great to see the smile on their faces when they see the extra special breakfast my other half or I had prepared for them. My younger daughter loves to have sprinkles added to some of her breakfasts on special occasions. One morning, I wanted to make French Toast for her, but she is not crazy about eating eggs. To solve this conundrum, I decided to try putting some…

    Cute Cookie Cutter Pancakes

    Breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day, yet many of us do not get to enjoy it most of the week. We are always hustling and bustling, trying to get out the door to get to work or school, and are satisfied with shoving food and gulping some form of liquid in our mouths to hold us over for a few hours. Since breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, I thought I would share a family favourite breakfast at our home: Pancakes! On the rare occasions I make breakfast (my other half is usually at the helm for meals), I like using cookie cutters to…

    Spicy Vegetable Soup

    Hey Readers! Autumn is fully upon us, and frankly, I REALLY miss the long, warm and sunny days this past summer has to offer. In my neck of the woods in Canada’s capital, we are now being greeted with shorter hours of sunlight, and cool, wet days. It is just a sign that winter is not too far away, and that my flip-flops are being put away for the year to make way for lots and lots of socks.  🙁 My other half, the real chef in our home, has also noticed my grumblings about the weather changing. Since he is so clever and loves to cook, he conjured up a…

    Three Letters: B-B-Q!

    Hey Readers! I have finally found some time to post on my blog (Yay!) Last weekend was the first weekend in June, and my boyfriend/partner person, who is also our live-in chef, brought something home and sneakily set up a surprise in our backyard.  It was a mini grill! The first thing out of my mouth was “Barbecue!” I know, it must seem kind of strange for someone to start cheering about having the ability to eat barbecued food, but it was, literally, the first time in three years (besides festivals or restaurants…those are experiences, not meals ;P ) since I had had barbecued food! Our “chef” out-did himself on…

    Saucy Pork Tenderloin

    Hey Readers, Sundays. It’s one of my favourite days of the week. Most people despise Sundays for the sheer fact that it’s the end of the weekend and people are gearing themselves up for another long work week. For me, one of the big reasons why I love Sundays is because of Sunday night dinners. This is when my boyfriend/partner person rolls up his sleeves and makes the kitchen his kingdom. Since we have been together, he has been a whiz at throwing ingredients together to create some amazing dishes. This past Sunday night was no exception. His latest creation was a saucy pork tenderloin dish. Readers, my boyfriend/partner person…

    Vanilla Cupcakes, Part 2: Redemption is Sweet

    Hi there, Readers! After the disappointing results of my first attempt at baking vanilla cupcakes, I searched and found a second recipe to test. I love vanilla cupcakes, and I really wanted to bake again.  So, after getting all of my ingredients together, I made my second attempt at making these cupcakes, and hopefully, they were tasty ones, too. Here is the recipe I found at Canadian Living.com for vanilla cupcakes: 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour 1 cup (250 mL) granulated sugar 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) baking powder 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, softened 1 cup (250 mL) milk 2 eggs 1 tsp (5…

    Vanilla Cupcakes, Part 1

    Hey Readers! I alluded to this attempt at baking  in my Reese’s Christmas Holidays Wrap-Up, 2013 post.  I was not too happy with the results of this recipe.  Since I’m far from being Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines, I like to try recipes my friends who have the natural gift of baking or the Internet have to offer.  I found this recipe on Spoonful.com.  It was a simple recipe, but I found a few things a little troubling about the amounts they were asking for where the ingredients were  concerned. Here are the Ingredients and Directions: 2-1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour 2 Cups Sugar 1 Cup Milk 3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil…

    Reese’s Lemon Cranberry Muffin Adventure

    Hey Readers! I am a self-proclaimed Christmasolic.  I love this time of the year.  In my neck of the woods, we’re pretty much guaranteed a white Christmas every year, and this year was a spectacular one.  All the snow, along with the bombardment of Christmas commercialism, just got me into the Christmas spirit even more.  All of these Christmas-like feelings got me to want to try and do something a little bit different this year where my sweet tooth was concerned.  Usually, we just make easy two-step snacks and have a ton of store-bought chocolate around to nibble on.  I decided to go out on a limb, and try to…
