This is one of my favourite dinners. My Quinoa Veggie Taco Bowl was born out of a craving for tacos but not the meat or the shells. So on nights when the kids are having traditional tacos, I’ll whip this up for myself in a flash. It’s so quick and easy and cooks up in the time it takes for … Continue reading

3 Ingredient Mounds Cookies

This isn’t a new recipe (thanks to my friend Jenny for this new favourite) but my version is nut-free and so darn easy to make. My recipe swaps sweetened coconut for unsweetened to cut down on the sugar and in my opinion, you’d never know the difference. They’re so fast and so easy and only need 3 ingredients that I … Continue reading

Halloween is my favourite holiday of the year. I love the excitement and all the scary decorations but I don’t love having to race to get the kids fed so we can dash out the door to start tick or treating.

Dirty Dishes: Thumbprint Jam Cookies and Netflix Giveaway

Thumbprint Jam Cookies

Oh it’s holiday baking time again! As a general practice I usually don’t bake a big batch of assorted treats and keep them on hand for the season.
