Orecchiette Pasta with Broccolini and Meatballs Recipe

A delicious dish of hot orecchiette pasta with broccolini and meatballs

Orecchiette Pasta with Broccolini and Meatballs I started making this dish shortly after we learned about our little ones’ rare syndrome. This orecchiette pasta is the perfect combination of speedy prep, full comfort flavour and fancy presentation. We don’t really have the luxury of heading to all the fab Italian eateries our city has to offer. But when this is on the menu, it feels like a date, even though it’s just us and our messy kitchen table. (or couch, who am I kidding). Lactose-free with a creamy taste Yep – lactose-free. The only diary in the recipe is the…

Lemon Chicken Soup with Orzo – 30 minute meals

mommydo.com || lemon chicken soup with orzo and spinach

It’s soup season! Which means it’s the best time of the year. This Lemon Chicken soup with orzo comes together fast with rotisserie chicken and broth you have on hand (either homemade or store bought).  So, not only is it easy, but it’s also really, really delicious. Like, it’s I’ve never seen anyone eat as much soup good. And it’s there wasn’t any leftover for lunch good. I’m a big soup person if you can’t tell… In fact, it’s probably my favourite food. I like soup for lunch, for dinner and for a late night snack. That means whenever I…

Weeknight Easy Turkey Chili

mommydo.com || weeknight easy turkey chili

Why is it called Weeknight Easy Turkey Chili? I classify recipes three ways: Weekend. Weekend Easy and Weeknight Easy. Weekend recipes tend to only be made on Saturdays and Sundays. And then, weekend easy recipes are involved for weeknights, but they still make their way in rotation. But weeknight easy recipes are the ones we eat all the time. These recipes need to be quick. They must be made with ingredients usually have on hand. And they need to be good. Preferably really good. This Weeknight Easy Turkey Chili is all three. It doesn’t matter if you swap an ingredient, add a…

The 12 Treats of Christmas: #6 – Easy Holiday Festive Fudge

Shhh, this is ‘my’ secret fudge recipe. The biggest secret is how little time it takes to make something this delicious. Confession: Though I usually make this with walnuts as per the directions, this year, in an effort to make more ‘nut-free’ goodies, I swapped the walnuts for Chippits Holiday Chips. Pretty good! And very festive. Recipe: (This is a Kraft recipe – One-Bowl Festive Fudge – from the 90’s, but I can’t find it exactly online. There are others that are close…) 10 squares Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate 1 can (330 ml) sweetened condensed milk 1 chopped pecans or walnuts…

Crispy Waffles

Waffles are a Sunday morning fav around here. The boy eats them and I don’t mind whipping up a batch in the early hours. They are dead simple, fairly low on the sweet factor…until the syrup anyway. MOMMYDO WAFFLE TIP: Cool your waffles on a wire rack instead of in a stack to have a yummy crisp crust on both sides. Yes, these are a little ‘homey’ looking, but they taste fab. Super easy too. My favourite recipe is here, and takes about 5 min plus cooking time. I use a big whisk instead of the hand blender as I…

You say Rocket, I say Arugula

I’ve been eating a lot of Arugula lately. For some reason the peppery goodness has moved to the top of the list of (healthy) things I like to eat. I qualify healthy because in a fight to the death in my kitchen, a cupcake will always triumph. Anyhoo, one fabtab way I’ve been cashing in on my Arugula craving is with this pasta dish. It’s fast to make, super delish, and has goat cheese – bonus! You’ll find the recipe from Chatelaine Magazine here, or follow along below. Spicy spaghettini with goat cheese, tomato and artichoke Ingredients 1/2 375 g…
