Pizza Pasta Casserole


Hey everyone! It is really the last day of November?! Or shall I say Movember. I have seen my fair share of lipholstery and face furniture as I like to call it so I’m more than ready to see all those scraggly 70’s mustaches come off and the Christmas decorations go up (I already decorated last week….shhhh) It also means that it’s less than two weeks until my birthday! Then a hop skip and a jump until Continue reading

Homemade Perogies


My girlfriend Lise and I had been all talk and no walk for months when we kept saying we wanted to make homemade cabbage rolls and perogies. Both recipes were easy, however they were both monotonous and time-consuming so we knew it would only be fun if we did it together. So finally one night we Continue reading

I am finally understanding why pregnant women in their third trimester want nothing more than to put their feet up at the end of the day.

Vegetarian Pad Thai


Happy Tuesday everyone! I would have posted this recipe last night but the thunderstorm knocked out our power. I don’t know what it is about a power outage that excites me but it gets me every time. Maybe it’s a combination of having to temporarily resort back to a Amish lifestyle or the fact that storms are a rare occurrence where we live (when they do happen, they usually last all of 10 minutes.) My hubby and I were organizing our filing cabinet and all of a sudden we found ourselves in the dark…… not what you’re thinking. Continue reading
