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…

Lactose-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake (with extra crumble)

mommydo.com Lactose-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake

I love cake. And since I am quite lactose intolerant, if I don’t make it, I rarely get to eat it. That’s why I’m so excited about this Lactose-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake with extra crumble. Of course, now that Natrel makes lactose-free butter here in Canada, it’s like it’s a whole new world. I have had some great success with vegan butter, but it’s not the real deal. While this cake does not have sour cream or butter milk, it’s still a lovely cake. I would definitely consider it lean closer to a pound cake consistency rather than fluffy birthday cake…

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…

Best Sandwich Bread Ever – Just Add Turkey

mommydo.com | The Best Sandwich Bread Ever, Seriously

Most people look forward to the big show at Thanksgiving. The main feast. But I think the sandwiches the day after are the best. This recipe is the Best Sandwich Bread Ever. It’s not the prettiest loaf, but it’s my favourite ever, just the same. The Best Sandwich Bread Ever is Not Pretty but… It is a bread machine recipe, which is what makes the loaves a little funny looking but I find, if you want to serve it with the big feast, putting the sliced bread on the table helps take eyes off the tall, slightly misshapen loaf. The key…

Drunken Italian Noodles and a Green Thumb

Mommydo.com | Drunken Italian Noodles |Easy pasta recipe that's perfect for entertaining | uses fresh ingredients | 30 min or less

I just realized I haven’t posted about these noodles. Wha? I can’t believe you could have been eating these for months and instead I’ve been keeping this AMAZING recipe to myself. I feel like a bit of a jerk about that. How good are they? I now have a plant – AN ACTUAL PLANT – so I always have fresh basil to make this specific recipe. So, so good. I’m pulling the recipe from here at The Cozy Apron. If you try them and like them as much as I do – (you know, ‘go out and get the only…

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…

Meal Plan Follow-Up: Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Tacos

On Sunday, I talked about my new commitment to meal planning. I mentioned this weeks plan had me making Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Tacos from this recipe from Dinner With Julie. Let me tell you, it is both easy and delicious. The meat is so tender and so tasty. Husband couldn’t believe it was a 5-ingredient dish! Took me maybe 10 minutes to get it ready – and that includes pulling the recipe up online and digging out the slow cooker. We made soft-shelled tacos with avocado, cheese (lactose-free for me), salsa and fresh tomato. It’s only as I type…
