Crispy Chicken Mango Salad with Goat Cheese and Honey-Mustard Poppy Seed Dressing

The kids and I love having salads for lunch during the week. When we’re driving home from picking Max up from Kindergarten and they find out we’re having salad for lunch, cheers erupt from the back seat.

This is the season for comfort food on the lighter side.

Chicken, Bacon & Black Bean Quesadillas

Chicken, Bacon & Black Bean Quesadillas

We’ve been eating these quesadillas for a couple of years now. This is our absolute favourite combination of quesadilla fillings. How could it not be? They’ve got every possible form of goodness in them – bacon, cream cheese, black beans, green chilies, chicken… I’ll stop now before I list off all the ingredients. I love…
