Lactose-free Lemonies

Lactose-free Lemonies I have a friend who’s called me Lemonie for years and I happen to LOVE lemon – so on this first day of spring, I thought I should bake a batch of these up. Lemon makes the perfect choice on hot sunny days. It’s a great bake sale treat. And, these are the perfect alternate to chocolate desserts for those strange people who don’t like chocolate sweets. (Or for people who like to have a little sweet and a little tart one after another. Like lemon pie, squared Much easier to make than a lemon pie, these squares…

DIY Easter Surprise Eggs are easier than you think

This DIY Easter Surprise Eggs recipe is a new Easter favourite. In fact, I might be make them 123,045 times before this easter. My little one LOVES surprise eggs. Like is seriously-obsessed-to-the-point-that-it-drives-me-crazy obsessed. But I can’t bear to have any more little plastic toys filling up our home, and she really shouldn’t be chowing down on full size big-kid eggs. So I decided to try and make some at home. melanie

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…

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

easy recipe video williams syndrome

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats I was lucky enough to win a Rice Krispies prize pack in the #treatsfortoys twitter party in December. I’m a big fan of the program where Rice Krispies donates money for toys for every toy shaped Rice Krispie Treat posted with #treatsfortoys. This year, the campaign raised $40,000. I thought I’d say Thank You for the amazing prize (which included a whole bunch of Rice Krispies AND a Visa gift card) by making a video of the first thing we made with the delivery. The whole family enjoyed these and I loved making my first food video.  …

Craving Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

That’s what happened to me last week. Just wanted to eat simple homemade cookies. So, I grabbed my go-to recipe that I’ve been making since I first learned how to make cookies (which isn’t hard ’cause I use the one on the back of the Chippits bag). Then I baked them. Then we ate them. Now I’m craving more classic chocolate chip cookies. Sigh. Ingredients: 1 cup – Softened butter 1 cup – Brown Sugar 1/2 cup – White granulated sugar 2 – Eggs 1.5 teaspoons – vanilla 2 cups – All Purpose Flour 1 teaspoon – Baking Soda 1/2…

A fan of the plan. The meal plan that is…

Do you plan your meals for the week? There was a time when I shopped almost daily, made what I felt like, ate out on a whim and watched groceries wither and die in the fridge. Nowadays, I find having one less thing to worry about each day is really worth the time spent on Sundays making a plan for the week and shopping all at once. It very much helps to ensure have healthy, hot food on the table each night. I generally plan for each meal to last two nights – either as the same meal or using…

The 12 Treats of Christmas: #11 Classic Sugar Cookies

I’ve got my binder open, and this recipe comes from a photocopy of a page from Chatelaine Magazine circa 1998. 15 years later, this is still my go-to sugar cookie recipe. As I said yesterday, I don’t have a photo yet, as we’re going to bake these over the weekend. But I find I like it when the dough chills for a good long while (overnight if possible), so I thought I’d post now so you too can get the batter together tomorrow and have a good old-fashioned cookie bake with the kids this weekend now that school is out….

The 12 Treats of Chirstmas: Peppermint Patties

Ok, one cookie down. Now for something that takes a little more commitment. Homemade Peppermint Patties. I know I posted about these a few months ago, but when looking to the Top 12, you can’t leave these out. They always get tons of compliments – I mean really, who knew you could make your own peppermint patties? So, so good. I usually let the innards sit overnight so they have a little snap. And, I find they take more chocolate than you think. The dipping is a real pain. You’ll want to quit about 10 times. But later, once you’re…
