Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas would have to be my husband’s favourite mexican dish, he even requested them for our New Year’s Eve dinner.  Actually, they probably tie with my recipe for Chicken Enchiladas with Home-made Enchilada Sauce, but that recipe is a tomato based  recipe, and this one is creamy, and not to mention healthy.  I […]

Caramel Popcorn 2

Caramel Popcorn

It doesn’t get much sweeter than this.  Caramel Popcorn!  It’s addictive.  It’s a great movie snack, will please everyone and takes hardly any time at all to make.  I have left out the nuts for my kids, but I adore it with Pecans.  So, Friday night when you are so tired you can hardly keep […]


Traditional Mexican Rice

I have always loved that red, slightly dry rice that they serve with your Burritos at Mexican Restaurants, but it wasn’t until my husband came begging for some Mexican Rice to have with our Mexican themed dinner one Saturday night that I ever thought of making it myself.  Surely it would be complicated, I mean, […]

Lemon Chicken

  Sometimes the food we love is the also the food we should avoid.  Take for example, Lemon Chicken.  I love Lemon Chicken, all of that battered, deep-fried chicken smothered in  a bright yellow Lemon Sauce.  I could go for some right now, but unfortunately it’s not so good for my waist-line, forcing me to […]

Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding 4

Old Fashioned Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

Self-Saucing Puddings can be a little tempermental.  If you don’t cook them long enough the cake is like Glug, and if you cook them too long you can’t find the sauce that has been absorbed by the cake.  This one however hasn’t failed me yet, and I can’t believe how quickly it comes together using […]


Menu Plan Monday

It’s Week 7, life is still busy, busy, busy,  and I’m still planning!  There were a couple of recipes we didn’t get to last week, so you will see them in my plan again this week.  My favourite recipes from last week were the Marinated Beef Tacos and  the Lemon Chicken…..Yuuuummmmmy, and so quick and […]


Cheesy Ham and Macaroni Bake 3

One For The Kids

  This is a Keep The Kids Happy meal.  It’s great for nights when you get home late, don’t particularly feel like cooking and certainly don’t want to have to force vegetables down their throats.  Sometimes it’s just nice to make something you know they will eat and enjoy.  And the best part is the […]


Marinated Beef Tacos

They say it happens in three’s.  I sure hope they’re right!  So far I have lost my beloved food processor and blender (Ouch!), and now my washing machine is being very tempermental.  Actually, it just won’t work.  The last time it displayed these symptoms, a winding-up ticking noise, there was a lolly-pop stick jammed in […]

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Mexican is a popular theme in our family’s Meal Plan, you’ve probably noticed we eat it at least once a week.  If you ask anyone around here what they want for dinner the answer is sure to be something that involves a tortilla, and this recipe has become one of our favourites.  I could honestly […]
