Classic chili recipe

Now that fall is fast approaching, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite one pot meal ideas with you. I’m still toying with the idea of a cookbook – but for now, I’ll settle on sharing my recipes here with you. Chili’s are a crowd pleaser and are really easy to make. You can use…

Oatmeal Yogurt Squares

I think over did it on groceries on Thursday because I still have a lot of food I need to use up before it goes bad. I’ve been cooking like mad and decided to switch things up tonight with some baking. I made a delicious blueberry loaf the other night to use up some berries…

Creamy Kale Linguini

To celebrate the end of my first week in my new home, I wanted to “break” the kitchen in with a good home cooked meal. Up until today, I had been relying on sandwiches, soups and frozen pizza while I unpacked and organized. Everything is pretty much organized now and so I ordered in groceries…

Easter dinner ideas for the single chef

Here we are at Easter weekend. A whole year later since isolation began – and we’re heading into a third wave here in Alberta. There are still rules when it comes to family gatherings, and so once again, I will be alone for Easter. It sucks. Sometimes I wish I had a partner to share…

Easy Rice Cooker Recipes

Lazy One-Pan Meatloaf

I’ve been craving meatloaf for a while now but have been feeling lazy when it comes to cooking. But the great thing about meatloaf, is that is easy to make . That’s great for the lazy chef like me. I go through spurts. Some days I want to cook all day. And other times, it’s…

Chicken & Asparagus Pot Pie
