Kale and Bean Soup (crockpot recipes)

My $69 Crockpot might be the best thing I purchased in recent years. I’ve made so many delicious soups and stews since replacing my old crockpot and it’s really helped improve my diet overall. One of my goals this year is to cook more meals at home and not waste so much food. It’s been…

Spaghetti with beef and mushroom sauce

My belly is full and happy after I just cleaned off my plate for dinner tonight. I had originally planned on making tacos but realized that I’ve been eating spinach wraps daily for lunch and wanted to change things up a bit. I had taken out some ground beef to defrost last night and you…

We’re back in isolation … again.

I wasn’t going to write today but after a provincial announcement yesterday, I’m livid and heartbroken. We’re entering into another “lockdown” so to speak. But not really. The rules are murky at best. People are confused. There’s a lot of panic going around today about getting vaccine passports and such. All I want to say…

It’s been three weeks! Condo update

Good morning dear readers. It’s 8:00 am here and it’s already shaping up to be a gorgeous day. I’ve had my first cup of coffee and bagel for breakfast. As soon as this is posted, I’m hitting the showers and will be walking over to the Dollar Store to pick up some cheap decorations for…

Fitness Challenge 2021 – update 1

So, I figured I should post a fitness update since it’s already April 10th. The one major thing that has changed for me in this challenge is being able to cook more. I’m back to working with healthy foods and vegetables. I’ve made many meals in the past week and have posted the recipes for…

Hello readers and happy Wednesday to you. I’m slowly getting back into a normal routine and hope to be publishing recipes and articles very soon. It’s been a whirlwind of a month and I’m grateful to be starting this next chapter of my life. I love my new home. Even with the traffic outside, it’s…
