Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

As mentioned in my previous post, I’m trying to do just one weekly grocery trip and pretty much use what we have. I wasn’t as organized this week as I was last so have had to improvise a little more. Last night I really wanted to do spaghetti but didn’t have any spaghetti sauce on hand. What I did have were two large cans of Diced tomatoes (one can was whole but it wouldn’t make a difference). I blended up…

Meatballs

I’m really trying to plan our meals ahead of time, or at least avoid any repeat grocery trips during the week. So I’m having to make sure to use everything I have on hand. Last week I had lots planned (roast, ham, and chicken), but this week has been a little less organized. I made Enchiladas on Saturday, spaghetti last night (had to make homemade spaghetti sauce because I didn’t have any…recipe to come), and tonight I thought I’d make…

The Gluten Free Lifestyle *Kellogg’s Rice Krispies*

On our recent trip to the Condo in Whitefish, while grocery shopping I came upon a most fabulous discovery. This summer proved to be a complete *failure* when it came to eating Gluten Free…and yes, I can tell. LOL  But even still, my *gluten free product* radar is in high gear. I love seeing products and companies that accomodate such dietary restrictions; It seriously makes me happy. It’s quite possible that after seeing these Kellogg’s Rice Krispies in Walmart that…

Homemade Mushroom Soup

I LOVE mushrooms. Raw (with dip), sauteed, on a burger, in a stir fry, or in soup. So years ago, when my  mom first made this recipe I was an instant fan. I LOVE mushroom soup – and love even more when I can make a dish from scratch instead of using the ever available convenience options. It’s sooo easy and hardly takes any time at all, which I know is super important in our busy lives. So, here’s what…

Cucumber Salad

My kids LOVE when I make this for lunch or dinner. It’s quick and easy, and although it has a creamy sauce, I like to think it’s still a bit healthy. LOL Mix together: 1 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup sugar 4 tsp vinegar 1/2 tsp dill 1/2 tsp seasoning salt Keep the dressing separate and add it to the cut up cucumbers in a separate bowl. The dressing keeps better if stored separately – otherwise the cucumbers get kinda mushy…

Corn Chip and Kidney Bean Salad

I know what you’re thinking…Corn chips and Kidney Beans?  Together? In a Salad? I realize it sounds strange, but I’m telling you people…it’s delicious! I recently had this delicious salad at a potluck dinner and was so bummed there wasn’t enough left for seconds. It was just so yummy. Planning for a potluck dinner while camping this past weekend, and having to work around only having a cooler (as opposed to a fridge..ie, we are tenters), this recipe came in…

This is how we snack!

We love picnics around here….a little platter with a bunch of different snacks is a great way I find to get the kids to eat. And eat healthy at that, though sometimes we add some little *treats* in too for fun. I made up this fruit platter for them and some friends a few weeks ago and loved how it looked. There’s just something about fresh fruit and how the colours pop together. Doesn’t it look pretty…and Delicious!!!! The kids…

Holy Crap – *Review*

I first saw Holy Crap Cereal on Dragon’s Den (I watch it every week!) claiming to be *the world’s most amazing breakfast cereal* and I knew I had to try it! Holy Crap is made with Organic Chia, Hulled Hemp Hearts, Organic Buckwheat, Organic Cranberries, Organic Raisins, Apple Bits, Organic Cinnamon. That’s it. NOTHING else. AND it’s WHEAT FREE, GLUTEN FREE, LACTOSE FREE, and VEGAN! It’s high in iron, high in dietary fiber, rich in Omega 3, Omega 6, and…

In my salad bowl…

I love a good salad, filled with a little of everything. I can be satisfied, full, and sustained from a great salad. I have a few salad dressings that I rotate between (most of them homemade) so I don’t ever feel like it’s the *same old* thing (though I can honestly say I’ve never felt that way anyways). I remember a friend growing up commenting to me that her mom never really ventured into new territory when it came to…
