I’ve come to love homemade granola. When I first discovered my favourite granola recipe, no store-bought granola could compare.

Whether I’m meal planning or trying…

Southwestern Breakfast Skillet

Southwestern Breakfast Skillet

Going to a diner for breakfast has always been one of my favourite meals to eat out. Nothing like a plate full of grease to get you going in the morning! :) It’s actually been forever since I’ve gone out for breakfast. Somehow getting young kids ready and out the door with grumbling tummy’s just…
