Granola Bars

I started making these a few years ago when I wanted to make sure that my kids got something quick and healthy for breakfast on those busy school mornings. Getting three kids to two different schools on opposite sides of the city and still make it to work was never […]

Strawberry Scones

Nothing in my house goes to waste. Either it is being used in recipes or being turned into compost in the back yard to grow even more food. We use everything. Why throw away money? That is where I got the idea to make these for the kids and hubby […]

Ham & Broccoli Stromboli

I could tell you this long story about how this came about and yada yada yada, but honestly I was bored with eating the same thing over and over again when we have leftover ham. Either we eat it with eggs for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, or reheat it for […]

Faux-Rotisserie BBQ Chicken

My husband says this reminds him of me, a little spicy mixed with sweetness. I don’t know if I want to remind him of a food. Hmmm. If you love those rotisserie chickens you can buy at the store, then you are going to love this! Not only is it […]

Mediterranean Inspired Pizza

This pizza is not your traditional pizza with tomato sauce and cheese on a pizza dough. This might become my new favorite pizza and that is saying something. I tossed out the classic pizza dough and replaced it with Naan bread. If you have never had Naan bread it is […]

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Baked Apples

Getting a hot and healthy breakfast is something many of us strive for. But our hectic weekday mornings can be tricky. Most the time it’s just easier to hit the drive-through on the way work or school. If I told you that in less than seven minutes you can have […]

Garlic & Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

These were invented by my daughter. We were watching Chopped one night, and my twins decided that they wanted to cook dinner and have their own version of Chopped. We joked that we need to have pizza on speed dial that night. After a week of planning, it was decided […]

French Toast

Growing up we always used sandwich bread to make French toast. No matter how long you let it cook, it was always soggy in the middle. The only time I want soggy bread is when I am trying to remove a splinter from my fingers (It works I promise!). Then […]

Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you have a peanut butter loving family? I do. My daughter and husband can put down a jar a peanut butter in a week between the two of them. They are always telling each to stay out of their peanut butter. When they start on each other I just roll my […]

French Onion Soup

Picture this: it’s spring time in Paris, and there are fields of flowers blooming, and trees swaying in the gentle breeze. As you walk down the street, you come across a tiny bistro that smells heavenly. Soon you find yourself sitting at a table ordering a delicious bowl of soup […]
