Quick & Flavourful Pizza Sauce

Homemade Pizza Sauce

I always had it in my mind that the best pizza sauce would have to be a labour of love. Something complicated and intricate with just the right nuances. Turns out I was wrong. After (what felt like) trying every type of pizza sauce under the sun, my favourite pizza sauce ended up being the…

Basic Spaghetti Bolognese

Last week after school Max asked if he could help me make supper. My immediate reaction was to hold back a sigh and wonder how to let him down easy. My hubby had been away on a business trip for most of the week and I was trying to get everything ready for them, and myself, as…

Quick Classic Tomato Soup

Quick Classic Tomato Soup

On a dreary day there’s nothing quite as comforting as a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I’m not sure what it is about it, but it just hits the spot. It must be some lurking childhood memory that brings up those cozy feelings as soon as my spoon dips into the vibrant red…

Eggs Benedict and Asparagus Breakfast Skillet

This recipe is for the savoury-breakfast-loving mothers out there. Although I seem to post mostly sweet breakfasts on here my true love lies with the salty breakfast.

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream (Vegan, Dairy-Free)

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream (Vegan, Dairy-Free)

I’ve gotten into the habit of making almost all of our ice cream recipes dairy free. I like knowing that when they’re stashed away in the freezer, if we get company, (pretty much) everyone can indulge. I usually still go the custard route but I was feeling lazy over Christmas break and had promised Max…

Easy Peppermint Truffles & Instant Hot Chocolate (dairy and processed-sugar free)

Easy Peppermint Truffles & Instant Hot Chocolate (dairy and processed-sugar free)

It will definitely be a white Christmas over in our neck of the woods. We’ve got enough snow to go around, and each day, we’ve been trying to get out and enjoy it in some way. On cold blizzard-y days we might go for a short walk, on warmer days we might hit the slopes…

Stove Top Stuffing

Stove Top Stuffing

The scent of stuffing = the holidays for me. I remember the excitement of Christmas buzzing through the air on Christmas Eve, all of us kids waiting anxiously for the night’s festivities. I spent so many hours looking at our tree with it’s twinkling lights and examining every detail of the special ornaments that were…
