We’ve packed in as much summer fruit and fall bounty as we could. Winter is upon, and with all the fresh goodies gobbled up it’s back to the kitchen to get creative with snack-time. C1 is forever telling me about all the treats kids have at lunch, his favourite being chocolate dipped granola bars. While I’m not ready to give in and feed him straight up sugar-covered-sugar for morning snack, I am willing to compromise. This is a less nutritious recipe to what we normally make but at least the ingredients are real.


Oh yes, we also added some mini m&ms!!


Me Time

There are so many things that make me happy, but when I comes time for “me-time” these two top the list.


Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake

On Friday I had both leftover chicken and ham in the fridge. I had Pinned this recipe a while back, and with my new obsession of swiss cheese I had all the ingredients required for this Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake recipe:

I did make a few changes (sweet onion mustard instead of dijon and regular italian breadcrumbs instead of panko crumbs) it was super tasty but very very rich. We had leftovers today for lunch and cooked and mixed in some plain pasta for a cordon-bleu mac and cheese? ha ha It was gobbled up, so the recipe will be archived!

Hello October


Fall starts in September, it gets all the credit, the excitement, the hype, but let’s face it, it’s wind-down time. In September we are holding on to the last days of summer, still bbqing, wearing shorts, drinking lemonade. October is when the good stuff starts. Cold nights,colourful leaves, scarves, apples, pumpkins, baking!!! HELLO OCTOBER!!! I have let go of September and I am ready to embrace you!!
