Cornbread Hot dog Muffins Monday, Jan 14 2013 


This is a favourite for children! Makes a fun lunch, and an easy one to send to school with children. You can easily make a lot of these and freeze them for those on-the-go lunches.

I used this Whole Wheat Cornbread recipe, pushed a chunk of hot dog into each muffin, and that’s it! 🙂

Loaded Baked Potatoes Wednesday, Nov 7 2012 


Need an idea for supper tonight? How about a Baked Potato Bar!

1. Bake your potatoes (in the crockpot!).

2. Put out a variety of toppings. Some ideas are: bacon, cheese, sour cream, salsa, peppers, ground beef (taco seasoned!), broccoli, cauliflower, salad, beans, lentils, etc

3. Enjoy! 🙂

Cucumber-Stuffed Chicken/Tuna Salad Monday, Jan 9 2012 


Looking for a yummy lunch with a twist? How about this cucumber-stuffed lunch! Simply cut cucumber in half (peel if desired), scoop out the seed, and stuff with your favourite tuna or chicken salad!

Delicious, and easy. 🙂

Mexican Pizza Wednesday, Dec 7 2011 

I liked experimenting with pizzas…. Recently, for an at-home date my husband and I attempted a Mexican pizza, with a cornmeal crust, topped with salsa, taco seasoned ground beef, green peppers, and corn.

Next time we’ll do it a bit differently, by using more salsa, and seasoning the meat more (I had seasoned it very mildly), but it was still yummy!

So, help me out for future at-home dates with my husband:

What are some of your favorite pizza flavours, toppings, etc? 🙂

Here is the recipe that inspired me… although I really didn’t follow it! 😉  I’m sharing it in the hopes that it inspires you too! It’s from Fleischmann’s Yeast Best-Ever Breads booklet.

Mexican Pizza

Cornmeal pizza dough
1lb ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup kidney beans
1 can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 cup grated cheddar or monteray jack cheese
1/3 cup diced pimientos, drained

In skillet, cook beef and garlic over med-high heat 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain. Add beans, tomato sauce, and chili powder; stir well. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed.

Roll out pizza dough, place in greased pizza pan. Spread topping on top of dough. Bake at 425F for 20-25 minutes or until done.
