Taquito Pie … Mmmm…

Taquito Pie

When I learned that hubby and my son had made Taquito Pie while my daughter and I were at a vendor show sharing about Norwex and greener cleaning, I was very eager to have it for dinner! Just over a year ago, my hubby came up with this recipe for Beef Taquitos. They were immediately a hit in our family and they make a great freezable meal too! As delicious as they are – preparing them can be a wee bit time consuming with all of the rolling of tech taquito, so his latest version, instead of calling Taquito Pie, … Continue reading

Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini-Muffins

My kids LOVE muffins and I’m even more excited to share that they both love Zucchini Muffins! Who knew that ZUCCHINI MUFFINS of all things could be accepted as part of a delicious dessert? That’s right! My kids happily will accept Zucchini Muffins as a yummy treat after dinner. Recently, I was at a client’s house and I admired her MASSIVE zucchini that had been picked fresh from the garden. It was HUGE, as wide around as my arm, absolutely HUGE! I was inspired to get myself some zucchini (sadly, much smaller in size) and do some baking. One favourite … Continue reading

Protein Packed Pancakes

Protein-Packed-Pancakes

Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day! This is why I try to ensure that my children get their serving of protein every single morning.

SO, I decided to come up with a recipe for Protein Packed Pancakes that fills them with protein, but are still very similar to the regular pancakes that they know and love. This recipe is quite easy as it is all mixed using a blender. The clean up is quick and easy … Continue reading

Grandma’s Butter Tarts {RECIPE}

Grandmas Butter Tarts

Butter Tarts are definitely one of my weaknesses! I absolutely love how they melt in your mouth. My favourite kind are with just a few raisins. This recipe is from my Grandmother. When I was in University, my parents left me alone for the entire summer as they went up to the cottage. I was so excited to have the house to myself, but specifically, I was excited to bake in the kitchen. My Mom didn’t love it when I asked to bake in her kitchen (I think it was because of the mess that I often created as I … Continue reading

Delicious Summer BBQ Dry Rub Ribs

BBQ Dry Rub Ribs

When I was a kid, my all-time favourite ribs came from a locally owned restaurant: they were grilled dry, without any sauce on them, and covered in a savoury rub that made them exquisite on their own, and even more amazing when coupled with a sweet-hot sauce (added on your plate as a condiment would be). A few years ago I decided to set upon the adventure of recreating this recipe, or at least something inspired by it. The fruits of my labour yielded a recipe for rib rub and another for rib sauce. I prepare ribs for our family … Continue reading
