Creamy Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese

By Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Ohhhh man. Good heavens this Mac & Cheese kick is a becoming a problem! I am trying not to inundate you with it (hence a week since my last Mac & Cheese post). But it's hard, because it's all I'm eating. Cheese and noodles, cheese and noodles!!! Anyway, this recipe is totally different from the Classic Baked ...

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup with Avocado

By Friday, January 10, 2014

One-pot wonders. My favourite. Newsflash - I am a busy person. My parents are quite possibly the busiest people ever, so I come by it honestly. I want to do everything and be involved in everything, and that means I often I am out of the house Monday to Friday with very little time to cook. ...

Homemade Sweet Chai Tea

By Friday, October 11, 2013

Confession: I absolutely love Starbucks’ Tazo Chai Lattes. I’m assuming I’m not the only one. Which is why, for my Stella & Dot party, I set out to make my own. With the chilly weather rolling in (it’s under 10 degrees when I wake up in the mornings), I thought it would be nice to welcome my ...

Slow Cooker Crab Bruschetta

By Monday, October 18, 2010

This post was updated in January 2015 with new photography! I love reading. I’d like to say I always have, but that’s not true. Growing up, as young as 7 years old, I was a complete fiend for books. Back then it was Nancy Drew and The Babysitters Club, but slowing it progressed to classics like ...

Slow Cooker Shrimp Jambalaya

By Friday, October 1, 2010

Another slow cooker recipe... before too long, I’ll have made every dish in my Crock Pot cookbook! This is similar to the Peachy Sweet and Sour Shrimp dish I made some time ago. Minus the peaches and nuts, they look very similar. Evidently, though, they taste completely different. I love meals that require little attentiveness, mostly because ...

Slow Cooker Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

By Tuesday, August 31, 2010

I have a hard time getting my daily intake of veggies. I crave carbs constantly, like chips, popcorn, crackers and pasta. I always make sure I get my fruits and veggies, but I get tired of all the common ways to eat them. I won’t, for example, ever buy and orange and peel it and ...

Slow Cooker Peachy Sweet & Sour Shrimp

By Sunday, August 29, 2010

Peachy Sweet & Sour Shrimp I have a certain type of food I gravitate towards. If it's spicy, Asian, some sort of curry or noodle dish, I'll probably want to try and make it. Thai food is my favourite kind of food by a country mile, for many reasons: flavours, textures, ingredients, style... I crave ...

Slow Cooker Spicy Cheese Soup

By Tuesday, August 10, 2010

My very first job (other than babysitting and eldercare) was at the Cole Harbour Heritage Farm, as a waitress in their Rose and Kettle Tearoom. I was 15. I had visited the farm and museum countless times as a kid, and I knew it well. I also knew I wanted to eventually be a server ...
