Dairy Free Pizza Flavored Quiche

This recipe is an old favorite of mine. Every few months or so, when I am truly brain dead, sleep deprived, not in the mood or just plain grumpy (no, I am not in my period, I just gave birth, thank you very much), I desperately browse my old recipe collection for inspiration. At a point in […]

D-day has come. And gone. Alas, I am still a hot air balloon. On the bright side, the baby has been moving well this morning. On the not-so-bright-side, I’m still a hot air balloon. Talking about balls and balloons, I wanted to share with you this recipe for a delicious savory cheese ball. It is […]

Baby Countdown #1 Quick no-yeast whole grain bread

So my due date is tomorrow. And just to make things interesting, I woke up this morning at 6 AM with regular contractions.  Regular, that is, until my kids woke up an hour later. I guess the sight of two wild haired, pajama clad toddlers stomping towards the bed was enough to scare even the contractions away. So instead […]

Did your spouse bring home a family pack of passion fruit flavored yogurt that was on sale? this is the recipe for you! I like to whisk all the ingredients in the food […]

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This is one simple Banana bread to make. It always comes out right. It does not have gazillion pounds of butter in it and it contained 50% whole wheat flour. The crust has almost a crunch to it and it keeps on the kitchen counter on in the fridge for a few days, without getting […]

Microwave Apricot Jam

This jam practically sustained my mother in law through a whole weekend of wrangling babysitting my two little scoundrels treasures, while the hubby and I took off to ogle watch Bon Jovi in Winnipeg. All. By. Ourselves. In the scope of  a mere 72 hours we came dangerously close to missing our plane(s) (and thus loose everything) due to […]

Savory Swiss chard and cheese muffins

I’ve just passed the last hour of my life going up and down a flight of stairs, coercing an almost hyperventilating, super excited, I-just learned-how-to-stand-up 9-months-old and a defying, rebellious, mind boggling(ly) stubborn 2 year old to retire their act and go to bed. When I enter the room, they both resentfully pipe down, only to resume […]

Quicky Microwave Orange Marmalade

Do you like orange marmalade? the bitter-sweet tangy kind with real pieces of orange peel in it? So do I.  Sooo good on a fresh slice of bread, even better if you sneak in some butter. How about sugar? lots of industrial, processed, white sugar? do you like that? oh, and some Fructose (another name for […]

Home made Ricotta style cheese

  If I would have known how easy this is to make, I would have made my own Ricotta cheese years ago instead of weekly harassing my grocer to get me some. Seriously, it’s no hassle whatsoever. This cheese was made from a liter of 10% coffee cream that was about to pass date in my […]
