Chicken Bread


This Chicken Bread takes some work but the results are definitely worth it!  I have made the filling with boneless chicken breast and ground chicken.  I prefer the boneless chicken breast but find using ground chicken is much faster.  I've attempted mixing in some whole wheat flour into the dough but haven't been successful.  The dough came out very dry.  You can experiment with the filling as well.  This recipe makes two loaves.  It's great for school lunches as well!

Quinoa Mattar "Pulao"


Quinoa is something it's taken me some time to get used to.  I find it has a distinct taste that at first I did not like.  We've been eating quinoa for a couple of years but it's taken me awhile to find recipes that we enjoy.  Initially, I would make them into a patty and fry them.  Since then, I've learnt some methods that have made a big difference for me in the flavour.

Cranberry Orange Loaf


I absolutely love baking!  Lately, I haven't been baking very much because we have been trying to eat more healthy and reduce the amount of sugar in our diet.  This past weekend we had an event at my boys' school and I volunteered to bring an item for refreshements.  I took a Lemon Almond Loaf and this Cranberry Orange Loaf so I could get a chance to do some baking.  This Cranberry Orange Loaf was a recipe I had pinned awhile ago and was excited to try.  I love the flavour of cranberries and oranges together and this loaf did not disappoint!

Vegetable and Lentil Soup


The weather in Toronto has been up and down.  Some days feel like spring is here and the next day we are pulling out our winter coats again.  These cold days are perfect weather for a hearty bowl of lentil soup!  I've been making this soup for about a year now.  The lentils make this very filling and perfect for lunch.  The original recipe has spinach which I usually don't have on hand so I omitted it.

Easy Little Bread

loaf of bread

This bread was made by my eldest son, Hasan.  Both my kids love to help in the kitchen.  It's definitely more time consuming have them involved but I think it's a good idea to capitalize on their interest now.  It's important for them to learn how to cook.  Hasan has made this bread a few times.  The first time was when he was in Grade 1.  He had won first place in the Speech Competition at school.  He had an amazing teacher and she worked with him a lot to help him prepare.  To thank her, he baked her a loaf of this bread.

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs in a Tomato Cream Sauce


I'm baaaaaack!!!  Sorry friends for being MIA.  My heart just wasn't into blogging this past year and I wanted to focus on other things in life.  One of those things was getting back to reading.  Before I had kids, I was always reading a book and I've really missed it.  I've read some great ones like The Pearl That Broke It's Shell and some not so great ones.  Right now I'm reading Charlotte's Web.  My son is in Grade 1 and his teacher is currently reading it to the class.  I've never read it so I thought it would be a good time and then my son and I can have our own book club 😉
