Vanilla Roasted Honey Pears….. mmmmm… good discovery! Light, simple, good by itself or paired with ice cream (in our case-rice dream) or yogurt! My mom got this recipe from her friend who has a really neat blog called Cher Stuff http://www.cherilitchfield.blogspot.ca/. These were good warm out of the oven and even good cold the next day mixed into my yogurt!
It has been fun being at my parents because they have many food sensitivities too, so its like we are on the same team in the kitchen! My hubby is flying in today so we are going to have to make things a little more hearty from now on! haha. I remember the first time he came to my parents he discovered it was a good idea to eat a meal before our supper at the house! We would go get some fast food before dinner Haha. It is true, if you are not use to clean, simple foods they do not seem satisfying at all. I have experienced the same thing! Click here to Read More
Well, are you curious to what people are cooking up in the great mother land up North? Yep, I’m here in Canada and loving every minute of it. We will be here for the a little while before we make our way to France where we will start our new chapter! Besides reconnecting with my family, I think the best thing about being here so far has been sleeping in a bed! Oh my gosh, I knew it would be better than an air mattress, but my oh my it’s completely glorious. I almost want to recommend sleeping on an air mattress for a couple of months just so you have a new found love and appreciation for your bed. The first night, we a solid 15 years, the next 13, the next 12, and been averaging 10 hours ever since. Back home in Hawaii I was sleeping a broken up sleep of 6 or 7 hours. I have a new philosophy…you spend half of your life in your bed, make it a good experience- invest in a good bed and nice bedroom! Not only do you spend half of your life in your bed but that time effects the time you are out of your bed. Bad bed equals back aches, poor quality of sleep, drowsiness in the day, an unsharp mind etc etc. Good bed equals a better quality of life- I am convinced! Or maybe I am just getting old and whimpy…what do you think? Click here to Read More
Broccoli Salad is pretty amazing. The first time I tried it, I started downing it like I would apple crisp- plate after plate. But hey it’s healthy, so the more the better right! Not even close. It was a bacon, cheese, mayo masterpiece. I knew it was just a tad too good to be healthy. Trying to up my health game lately, seeing how I spent a good solid month with a staple diet of Salt’n Vinegar Potato Chips, I knew I needed to make some changes.
Pregnancy got woozy and crazy and I seriously went a full month where all I could handle was Salt’n Vinegar chips. Thank goodness things are normal now and I can make some wiser choices! OH, and oh my gosh, I just found out… we are having a BOY!! We are beyond excited and we saw the ultra sound and he wasn’t a potato chip… which I was kind of worried about! It looks like all my intuition about having a little girl was completely off! What do I know… but hey we are beyond excited and feel so very blessed. Click here to Read More
Okay, all I am going to say is that these are the easiest most delicious crock pot taco’s on the market! They are awesome. I have shared this recipe with all my friends and its one that gets used time and time again! I found it on the net a few years back and I thank the dear person who posted it… If only I could remember where that was!
This can feed a crowd for pennies, makes great left overs and is an all around winner on flavor, budget and time! I am in a whirl wind of things going on so throwing this meal together by plopping the ingredients in in the morn., and let the crock pot do its thing, made for a special, yet extremely easy dinner that night!
I can’t believe I am moving off this rock-permanently-ahhhh- in a couple of days!! I’m off to Canada for a couple weeks for a family visit before we are off to our new life in France! Life is full right now of a million little things that come along with any kind of move, and pregnancy and all that life has to offer! I wonder if life will ever slow down. Does it? I have a feeling it wont for the next 20 years… Click here to Read More
