Mom to the Rescue

Do you ever wish there were more hours in the day? It always seems like I’m running around trying to get things done, whether its housework, helping the kids with homework or shuttling them to and from activities. Let’s not forget work, too! Somehow I manage to squeeze it all in. There are days when… [read more]

Butter Tart Muffins

Butter Tart Muffins

I can never resist eating a butter tart, the classic Canadian dessert! I was curious to see how the flavour would transfer over to a muffin. The verdict? Success!

Lasagna Bowl

John’s favourite dish is lasagna and he is always asking me to make it. I prepare it every once in a while, but find it’s tedious to make. I have a lasagna hack that tastes just as good as the real thing, but is a little easier to whip up. It’s basically cooking your favourite… [read more]

Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes

Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes were a staple on our dinner table growing up. My mom used to make her mashed potatoes whipped with milk and butter and made sure there were no chunks left. I was a picky kid and wouldn’t eat them if I discovered they were chunky! Also, my grandmother believed it wasn’t a meal… [read more]
