How to prevent mice infestations

It’s Wednesday night as I write this out, but you’ll read it in the morning with your cup of coffee. I’m trying to get better with scheduling posts and providing more helpful content for you. But with the upcoming move, I’ve been distracted with cleaning, packing and actually finding a home. TBD. What else have…

Butternut Squash & Ham Casserole

I’ve been eating so much chicken and kale lately, that I needed to change things up. I switched to spinach, zucchini and decided to order a pack of sliced butternut squash from my deli. The problem with packages like these, is they don’t last long. So, I looked through my fridge to see what I…

Fitness Tips: exercising without a gym membership

Are you tired of spending money on gym memberships that you never use? Or maybe you were pressured into signing up for a membership by overbearing “fitness experts” while visiting your local fitness centre?

Grilled Corn Beef and Cheese Sandwich

Today, I wanted to talk about cooking basics. The more I learn about cooking, the more excited I become and want to share everything with you. I’m far from being a professional chef. The reason I wanted to become a better cook was for health and financial reasons. I realized how much money I was…

Ukrainian Sausage Recipe

I found some sausage in my drawer that I forgot I had. This is a common problem as a single person living on her own. It’s also why I refuse to store vegetables into the proper vegetable drawer. I use it so rarely, that great food often gets forgotten down there. Did you know potatoes…

Baked Pork Chops with Veggies

This is an original recipe that I made for a friend the other night and she loved it. But tonight. I’ve got the meat marinating in the fridge and tonight, I’m going to bake the dish instead of frying – for something different. This is a great dish to make on a cold wintry day….
