Chicken and vegetable stew (crockpot)

The other night the temperature dropped again to -40 and I thought what better time than to get out the crockpot and make a stew. It was probably the most delicious stew I’ve made since getting this crockpot and honestly, it may be the best $60 I’ve spent in recent years. I definitely missed having…

All good things must come to an end

It’s nearly 10 am as I write this and I’m sitting down for my first cup of coffee for the day. I’ve been awake since 8 but it was so cold today that I decided to stay bundled up in bed with my phone and browsed TikTok and other social media platforms for a while….

Double stuffed meatloaf – comfort food

Last night, I made one of the best meatloafs I’ve ever had in my entire life. I don’t know what so special about this one – I’ve made this recipe before. Maybe it’s because I haven’t had meatloaf in ages. I have been craving mashed potatoes and meatloaf for so long that my mouth was…

Wednesday batch cooking – with asparagus

It’s Wednesday morning or almost noon as I type this out. The sun is shining and even though there’s a chilly breeze right now, it’s supposed to get up to almost 20C today. That’s like summertime weather. I’m sitting here in my plush pj pants, sipping my first cup of coffee and eating my per…

Updated & reposted Jan 4, 2021 I was feeling super lazy but wanted to be healthy. This is a one pot meal and can be prepped in less than 30 minutes. If you pre-wash and pre-cut your vegetables when you bring them home from the store – then prep will take just a few minutes….

Lazy Seafood Casserole

Well, I finally managed to get into the kitchen today after being sick for almost a week. I’ve been in bed the last few days – I slept until 4 pm on Tuesday, which is very unusual for me. But today was a great day. I got up before noon, showered, got dressed and even…

Chicken & Asparagus Pot Pie

I had a bunch of asparagus that I needed to use up before it went bad. Asparagus is a rare treat that I indulge in when I’m feeling sick or missing my mum. She made the best cream of asparagus soup. I decided to do some batch cooking tonight and made this delicious version of…

Thanksgiving Dinner for One – is all about comfort food

Since our family is opting out of Thanksgiving again this year, I’ve decided to cook up some of my favorite dishes this weekend. This seems like a lot for one person, but this meal can feed me for days. Here’s my plan (what I actually do might change): Roasted Honey Ham Mashed potatoes with cream…

Grilled Corn Beef and Cheese Sandwich

This week’s theme in What’s Cooking, has been all about comfort food. I was going to whip up some tacos tonight but opted to fry up some of the kale that has been sitting in my fridge. And what to serve with the kale? I mean, you can’t just have kale on its own. I…
