This non-recipe recipe is so simple, it nearly never made it here. Make them for movie night, make them for Super Bowl…you decide when, but just make them. You won’t be disappointed.

Turkey and I, we are not friends. I want to be friends with turkey. It’s one of G’s favourites, so you can just imagine my dilemma. Unfortunately I have had some magnificent turkey disasters in the kitchen, not the least being for Thanksgiving dinner. Luckily for him, this recipe has changed that all. Back when Emma was two, we splurged on an Italian holiday. Loving all things Italy, I felt pretty well prepared for this adventure. Growing up, some friends had old-world Italian families and to my […]
Anyone can cook. The temperatures have been a little colder, G’s hours have been a little longer and extra-curricular activities have been keeping the girls busier than usual. All of these factors together have made us committed to our Friday family movie night more than ever. A short while ago, we watched Ratatouille. Around the same time, Thomas Allen & Sons (@ThomasAllenLTD) provided me a copy of Mark Bittman’s book How to Cook Everything Fast. As I casually flipped through it, a […]

Christmas is one of my favourite holidays… And pancakes are the ultimate breakfast for Emma and Katie. Offer them as an option and they will never be rejected. Now that we’re approaching the holidays, all the girls in our house are pleased — these festive pancakes are flavoured with traditional gingerbread spices and fill the house with a delightfully warm aroma. Truly a wonderful way to start the morning. And my little girls would agree! For this recipe, we use an easy-to-make […]

Chocolate. Cinnamon. Banana. Delicious. The girls have been really into muffins again lately. Whether picking a treat from the bakery, at an event that has desserts or just because, muffins are in high demand here. Both girls also adore banana bread. In our house, if chocolate, cinnamon and banana are included, inevitably, a popular recipe is born. Do you have similar ingredients in your kitchen? A much beloved treat, some muffins are considered a breakfast food. These are a little sweeter and lean more to the dessert […]

This is the recipe that’s hardly a recipe. I’m really starting to see that exposure to fresh, whole, homemade foods has beneficially developed Emma’s and Katie’s tastes. For example, they enjoy our homemade hot chocolate made from steamed milk so much that when we go out, they choose to not drink hot chocolate made from water and powder. They are so enamoured with steak done on the Big Green Egg (BGE) that they don’t particularly enjoy steak when we eat […]

Often with children in the house, someone can feel left out. It’s not always the same person feeling left out either. Mum is cooking or tidying while the kids are wrestling with Dad, big sister is busy doing homework while little brother is colouring or Dad is at work while Mum takes the kids on an outing. Do you sometimes feel like the one missing out on the fun? In our family, the girls certainly influence a lot of what […]
