Pumpkin Chili

This is what fall is all about – chili and pumpkin things. So why not throw them in the same pot and cook ’em? I make good chili, always have.  It’s like a gift. This is the best chili I’ve ever made. (to date) All thanks to a can of pumpkin. 1 onion, diced 1 […]

Sinfully Delicious – Without the Sin

If I could name my most favourite sinful treat to eat, it would be cookie dough.  Raw.  I really try to forget that there is egg in it, because it’s just soooo sinfully delicious that not eating it should be the sin. If I could name my most favourite dessert at a restaurant, it would […]

Grilled Vegetable Pizza

I’ve been on a really big pizza kick lately. Homemade pizza has always been high on my list of “Things I Wish I Were Good At.” It’s taken me years of practice, but I finally think I can say I’m good at it. I owe most of my success to Annie.  We’ve tried lots and […]

No Egg Cookie Dough Balls

A non-baby post!  I know you all only stop by here to see pictures of Muffin…I mean Aria…eh? But I’m going to start trying to add in some other non-baby posts here and there – if I can hold back.  These cookie dough balls are DA BOMB.  They’re explosively awesome.  There truly isn’t anything better […]

Chipotle Chicken

I have a recipe problem. It’s simple. I don’t like them. It is way too much effort for me to A) Write down a recipe to bring to the kitchen – B) Lug my laptop down to the counter and set it up to read a recipe – C) Remember to look at the recipe […]

A Healthier Ziti

Yay!  A post! I appreciate everyone being so patient with me.  I can’t guarantee that this will be the beginning of more routine posting, but I’m hoping I’ll have some inspiration.  We’ve got quite a yummy meal plan this week, and you won’t believe what’s making an appearance… MEAT Yes, it’s true. I’m trying out […]

Tropical Breakfast Love

Breakfast is often my most favourite meal of the day.  Especially since I discovered Banana Soft Serve.  Every night I think up new ways to dress my dessert breakfast.  My usual blend of BSS, raw rolled oats and cacao nibs often beats out any other combinations, as it’s in a word – perfect. Yesterday when […]

Grilled Veggie Panini

I’m in love with paninis, and I don’t even have a real panini press! This is what one comes up with when they have a bunch of random vegetables that need to be eaten – preferably together. I’ve made this twice this week, it’s THAT good. Okay, honestly, that’s not why I made it twice. […]

A Parm With A Charm

I love me some parm. Yes, I’m talking about Parmesan, for all those non-cool-kid lingoers. I especially love when I can slap some parm on something from our Bountiful Basket, as it makes me feel better about buying such expensive cheeses. This week there was an Italian Pack add-on. We all know what that means! EGGPLANT […]
