Over a cup of tea…

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd tell you I've finally finished all of my wedding invitations! It's taken a VERY long time because of assembly, addressing the etc. but I'm so happy to have finished them this past weekend. Every 10 took about an hour! Invitations have been my favourite ...

Spicy Turkey Cabbage Rolls

By Friday, July 25, 2014 Permalink

This could seriously be my favourite take-to-work lunch EVER!!! First, I need to confess – I have never made cabbage rolls! I don’t even know if I’ve ever eaten them. Not to knock my Mama, but she had a set dozen recipes or so that she would make repeatedly when I was growing up (including Chicken ...

I know what you’re thinking. Stop it with the mac & cheese already, right??? Sweet Potato Mac Cheese Good news, friends – this is the last mac & cheese post in the queue. For now, anyway… I actually made this one forever ago. And then I froze it. Yup – froze it. I almost never freeze meals. You would ...

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd tell you I'm so happy to be playing soccer again! I missed 10 games between the two teams I play on with my toe injury and while I'm not entirely healed, I'm good enough to play again. It feels like I was off ...

Homemade Hollandaise Sauce (Eggs Benedict)

By Friday, July 18, 2014 Permalink

I made hollandaise sauce – from scratch!!! Are you an eggs benedict fan? I only recently (like, in the last two years) became one. That’s nuts, right? The thing is, I never thought I liked hollandaise sauce. I had it over veggies like broccoli and cauliflower as a teenager and didn’t enjoy it at the time. Clearly ...

Creamy Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese

Ohhhh man. Good heavens this Mac & Cheese kick is a becoming a problem! I am trying not to inundate you with it (hence a week since my last Mac & Cheese post). But it's hard, because it's all I'm eating. Cheese and noodles, cheese and noodles!!! Anyway, this recipe is totally different from the Classic Baked ...

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d be completely exhausted but so happy! I just arrived back in Ottawa and am thrilled to be home. I had a whirl wind week, flying from Calgary through Montreal to Halifax, where I worked and then took off to a cottage bachelorette party. ...

Buffalo Turkey Balls

By Friday, July 11, 2014 Permalink

These are like buffalo chicken wings.. without the calories. Or at least that's what I heard. They have GOT to be less than restaurant chicken wings, right??? So the buffalo chicken obsession is back in full swing. Or it never left/ended. I still want to drink buffalo chicken sauce every bit as much as the day I ...

Classic Baked Mac and Cheese

By Wednesday, July 9, 2014 Permalink

Back to basics today!!! A couple months ago, I was visiting Laura and we were talking about my blog (and I met her gorgeous baby boy, Cooper). Her husband told me he's a fan of The Domestic Blonde, which always makes me so happy, but that the other day he went looking for a recipe that he was ...

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d tell you that lately, I am… Eating / Steak tonight at Vintage in Calgary! I can't wait to finally try the famous Alberta beef. Drinking / Way, way too much. Stampede will do that to you, apparently. Mastering / Functioning on zero sleep. I think the last night I slept really ...
