Quick Eats – Easy Skillet Lasagna Veloce

A big theme in our kitchen these days is fast food. Not like ‘can I have some fries with that’ fast food. More ‘I want to cook good eats without spending my day in the kitchen’ fast. So I found a recipe on Pinterest that inspired this skillet Lasagna creation : Lasagna Veloce This one pan Lasagna is made on the stove top in a skillet in about 30 min if you have some sauce handy. So easy. Take some thin meat sauce and spread it in the bottom of a skillet. (I made from scratch but you can always…

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…

Here’s the Rub: BBQ Rotisserie Chicken Recipe

Literally, here is the rub that made this crazy delicious chicken crazy delish. Seriously, like Busy Mommy says, it’s like grocery store rotisserie chicken only better. And cheaper. And you get to have the smug satisfaction of making something that nobody every makes because it’s just so easy to buy AND making more delicious.   We had these bean and bacon bundles on the side. Green beens. Wrap in bacon. Drizzle a little EVOO and some salt and pepper and these yummy little bundles are good to go onto the grill. So good! So, so good. melanie

BBQ Ribs: Cookin’ like a golden girl

Mommydo BBQ Ribs recipe

Ok, not quite. But here in Canada, there are a couple of magazines that used to seem like ‘old lady magazines’ to me. Well either I am an old lady or they’ve done some work on catching the mom-with-kids set because they are now my fav’s! One in particular, Chatelaine, set the stage, or the table I suppose, for some delicious eats this weekend. First, we made some ribs – from scratch (well, not the actual meat part) and then we made a magazine recipe/my own imagining warm potato and asparagus salad that was delish. I have mentioned already that…

Why is never take-out day?

Why is it never takeout day?

  I’m not exactly sure when it happened, but my husband and I decided some time ago that we would only have take-out one day a week. The boy is not a restaurant kid. He is wild, unpleasant and unhappy when confined in a booster seat for one second longer than he deems necessary. So for those reasons and, of course, health, saving money, controlling what goes into our meals, blah, blah, blah we cook at home (or reheat) 6 days a week. By we, I mean me. That’s a lot of cooking. It means trying new things. Working to…
