Acorn Squash Stuffed with Quinoa

1. Acorn Squash Stuffed with Quinoa

A Vegetarian Side Dish For The Holidays or Any Time-Greens and Beans

2. A Vegetarian Side Dish For The Holidays or Any Time-Greens and Beans

My greens and beans recipe is pretty basic. The ingredients include: heads of romaine (or if you prefer you can use kale). I prefer the romaine because I find kale to be a little bit more bitter. I also use minced garlic, chicken broth, cannellini beans an…

Bread and Butter Pudding with Crusts

3. Bread and Butter Pudding with Crusts

One popular dish, ideal for garden and celebratory parties, is the traditional British Bread and butter pudding. A favourite of mine, it’s easy, quick and inexpensive to make; and incredibly, packed with wholesome flavour. This recipe is a variatio…

Ginger Carrots - a special side dish for any holiday meal

4. Ginger Carrots – a special side dish for any holiday meal

Sweet Potato Crusted Holiday Quiche

5. Sweet Potato Crusted Holiday Quiche

This Sweet Potato Crusted Holiday Quiche is great for family gatherings as it’s filling, nutritious and looks really festive, yet it is easy to make and can be mostly prepared in advanced then finished off in the oven before serving. I get sick of nut…

Linda McCartney's Home Cooking

1. Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking

Semi- Vegetarian When I think about my all- time favorite cookbooks there are a handful that always rise to the top of the list. One such book is the late Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking. I purchased this book many years ago when I was trying the veget…

Potato Cleaning Gloves...Because Nobody Likes Dirt in Their Food

2. Potato Cleaning Gloves…Because Nobody Likes Dirt in Their Food

Cleaning vegetables can be a perplexing task. When are they really clean? What is the best way to clean them? What are the repercussions if they aren’t clean enough? We all hear horror stories of the chemicals and bacteria we could potentially be cons…

3. Nespresso – Barista Style Coffee in the Comfort of Your Own Home!

Brilliant Bilbo Baggins Lego House for Hobbit fans

4. Brilliant Bilbo Baggins Lego House for Hobbit fans

Hobbit homes have been an obsession of mine for many, many years and you’ll see exactly what I mean by that when you check out my photos on this page. My six year old is always drawing pictures of them for me since she knows that mommy would really lo…

Using the Force With Star Wars Monopoly

5. Using the Force With Star Wars Monopoly

Before we dive into this game I think it’s mandatory to set the right mood; 1. Hum the Imperial March, Darth Vader’s Theme Song (or set it as a background music by viewing it on Youtube) 2. Relax. Clear your mind. Now inhale (chooo). Exhale (phaa…

Three Halloween Costumes My Daughter Still Blames Me For

2. Three Halloween Costumes My Daughter Still Blames Me For

The other day, during a marathon cleaning/rearranging session, I unearthed our old Clue game and couldn’t resist taking a peek. All I found was the board, a pad of worksheets, and a couple of pens rattling around in the bottom of the box. No cards, no…

3. Sousababy’s Kid Lists the Top 4 Halloween Treats

When I was little (a few decades ago), all the kids on the street knew who gave out the best Halloween treats. My father was more ‘in tune’ with what the kids wanted. My mother, on the other hand, only wanted to save money. Nowadays, parents are…
