This is my version of an Egg Roll in a bowl. I used dark soy sauce, so

Strawberry Muffins – Baking with Kids

Strawberries, they are one of those berries that I love just as they are, or in a dish with a little cream and maple syrup (yes, that is a real treat!). I remember, as a child, waiting for strawberry season every summer so we could enjoy strawberry shortcake. When we would visit my grandmother or aunt & uncle in Cape Breton, there were usually a few churches around the Cabot Trail hosting a Strawberry Tea, and we would go to more than one!

Today Clayton asked if we could bake some muffins. He is my picky eater, so I asked him what he wanted to try.  He said Strawberry, at the beginning of March...so we are going to give them a shot! I cannot guarantee he will eat them, but perhaps by letting him make them, he will be more interested in eating them as well.

Tuna Casserole (Freezer Friendly)

Don't you just love a good comfort food? Pasta casseroles are one of my fave comfort foods.

Tuna Casserole is quick to make and includes ingredients you likely already have on hand.

This casserole can be mixed up and baked for tonight's supper, or frozen in a freezer bag to prepare another evening.

17 Awesome Zucchini Recipes

Harvest Time - What to do with all the Zucchini?

It's that time of year! Harvest season is upon us and our gardens are overflowing with various veggies and fruit. My in-laws gifted me some zucchini, really big zucchini. I have made zucchini noodles (zoodles) before, and breads, muffins, and cake, but I was wondering what else I could make and freeze, or preserve. So, I went to my blogging friends and my Facebook page and asked what others are doing. Below is a long and varied list of how you can use this vegetable to bake, pickle, freeze and more.

Simple Pasta Goulash

This Simple Pasta Goulash is the North American version of goulash. 

Let's talk comfort food. It just is...it is one of those meals I can prep quickly and have left overs for lunches. It is simple, yet delicious, affordable yet not loaded with preservatives. It is perfection in a skillet! (At least I feel this way 🙂 )

Zucchini Salad with Lime Basil Dressing

Zucchini Salad with Lime Basil Dressing

Zucchini are in abundance this time of year. We love using it in baking and roasting it in the oven or on the BBQ. Here is a nice lightly dressed salad that you can serve as a side with almost any meal.  

The lime and basil dressing is the perfect light dressing to pair with chicken or fish. Enjoy and be creative. You could add more veggies to this or change it up with greek dressing, adding feta and olives.
