Baked Brunch Omelet

Do you have company coming and want to make a great breakfast as easy as possible? I first had this delicious casserole in 2010, when a bunch of us were at a chalet skiing (I was not among the skiing crew but instead helped watch the kids so others could). It is so delicious and great for large groups. It essentially tastes like a giant omelet, so if that’s your kind of thing then you’ll love this too!   Don’t…

Gluten Free Crepes!

My late father in law always made the best crepes – we loooove them and have them every Christmas morning (tradition).  But I wanted to try the recipe with Gluten Free flour to see if there would be any difference.     So I made crepes the regular way for the family and this new way for me….and if you want the truth – you can’t tell the difference. Seriously. I had my husband take a bite of mine and he…

Delicious Homemade Tomato Soup

Ah yes…one of my favorites. Often my mom and I would have grilled cheese or tuna  sandwiches and tomato soup on Sunday afternoons….we loved it. There was something really cozy about it and felt to me like one of those bonding moments. One of those memories that sticks. So naturally I’m pretty excited that my daughter also loves tomato soup – ah and so the bonding continues. 🙂 Several years ago, while visiting family in Utah, my cousin made us this…

Taco Soup

I first posted this recipe exactly 6 years ago today and it remains one of my fall favorites. It’s perfect for those chilly days that remind you winter is just around the corner (*I’ll miss you summer*) or those snowstorm days when all you wanna do is hang out in your pyjamas and curl up with the fam….it’s a hearty meal that always makes me feel like we are well fed. You can modify it to your liking, though this is…

Why I Talk to My Kids About Their Bodies | Tales from an Unfiltered Parent

Recently I’ve seen several articles suggesting we shouldn’t be talking to our kids, specifically our daughters about their bodies. The headline of one in particular is something like “How to talk to your daughter about her body. Step one: Don’t talk to her about her body”. And I understand that we don’t want to encourage body negativity or unhealthy fixation, but I don’t agree with avoiding the topic as the best way to do this. In fact, I’m quite the…

Six Things I Tell My Kids about Sex and Pregnancy | Tales from an Unfiltered Parent

I grew up in a conservative home and religion and as such, sex before marriage was a big no no and seen as shameful. It also wasn’t something discussed other than to say “don’t do it” which I suppose works for some people, it’s just really not my jam. I actually don’t know how to say that without a real life reason (ie. not a religious reason) or how to not talk openly about things. My kids are 14 and…

The Kaleidoscope Effect of Women Empowering Women

I am so incredibly excited to tell you about my new Facebook group {click either image below} and hopefully welcome you as we create an incredible and empowering group together. It isn’t a one size fits all and in fact, I want and welcome women from different walks of life.  This group is a safe space to share and support and grow. What I’ve learned and continue to see is that we as women HAVE SO MUCH TO OFFER. Yes,…

Orange/Almond Salad

This is probably my favorite salad of all time. I love making homemade dressing and being able to have a pretty salad to put it on just makes it even better….and more delicious! For the dressing, blend together: 2 chopped green onion stalks 1/3 cup vinegar 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp prepared mustard 1 cup vegetable oil (added slowly while blending)…Mazola, Canola, or Crisco…though Olive oil can be used as well And, to make a pretty salad to put it…

Consent Isn’t Just About Sex | Tales from an Unfiltered Parent

For a while now, there’s been a lot of talk around here about changes in the sex education curriculum. And while I’m in favour of them, I can understand some of the initial hesitation and fears people are having….except for one topic in particular: Consent. I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would oppose it. I’ve heard of people shocked and upset at the idea of teaching kindergarten aged kids about consent. And I’m over here shocked…

Celebrate Your Year with Holiday Cards from Minted

You know the drill…. Stress over coordinating outfits, wrestling the kids into clothes they may not love, and get everyone to pose together and smile and look at the camera AT THE SAME TIME…. But seriously. One photo, you just need one photo. No silly-ness – I once told my kids not to be themselves but to be who I want them to be. Ha! If you’re lucky, you end up with a whole lot more than one which is…
