Foodie Friday Easter Edition!

Happy Easter everybody! I hope you get to take some time to spend with your loved ones over the next couple of days and fill your tummies with delicious meals!

Today I am sharing with you a yummy dish you can prepare ahead of time to enjoy through the week, and by making simple adjustments you can get multiple meals from it! It all started with an excess of chicken thighs in the fridge and my hubby telling me he didn’t want the “usual” chicken dishes we make…oh boy! I accepted the challenge and by the time he got home that night I had a hearty, simple meal on the table (which was gobbled up quicker than clean-up)!

The nice thing about this dish is that you can change it up a bit if you don’t have all the ingredients on hand, and can really customize it to your picky eaters. A nice Hearty Chicken and Dumplings (with my own little cheats for time) is exactly what you need to transition you from this cold winter weather to the freshness of Spring!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did (and by we, I not only mean me and my hubby but also my mom and a colleague who I shared the leftovers with…that’s how big this recipe is!). Nom Nom Nom!

Feeling a Little “Chili”?

I don’t know about you guys, but I CAN’T believe that it is November already! That means it is only going to get colder, and with the sun setting earlier we are going to start feeling those winter blahs soon enough. Christmas decor and gift ideas will soon be filling all the store shelves, and snow will be making our drives a little bit longer and a lot more stressful.

Lucky for you I recently decided to be a little more adventurous with a classic recipeĀ  and created the most delicious Chicken Tortilla Chili! It is sure to be a new family favourite for the cold nights ahead, and you can even make it in the crockpot so it’s ready when you get home.

There are a few shortcuts you can take if you are running low on time (or patience) and with just a few simple ingredients it won’t break the bank. It makes a heaping pot of chili, more than enough to feed a family of 4 at least two times…see the recipe for my spin on what to do with the leftovers for a fun family meal the next day!

Shorter Days and Colder Nights

Hey everyone! Sorry this edition of “Foodie Friday” is a couple of days late! Last week was slightly crazy for us…in fact, the craziness is still continuing! As I type this there are three men in my kitchen installing new granite counter tops. Anyway, for this weeks dish I wanted to bring you something that was as quick as it is delicious!!

I was thinking, with these super cold days we have been having (we had SNOW yesterday!) I wanted to share with you something that was stick to your ribs, fill your tummy good, and loaded with vegetables! So friends, this week you will be shown how to make my very tasty Chicken Pot Pie.

I hope you enjoy it, and as always please feel free to leave a comment with your favourite dish or substitution so I can share with everyone else!
