The weather this week suggests that spring is on its way and with spring comes Easter and with Easter comes...well something new for us.
After moving 3,000 km across the country and away from everything and everyone we have ever called home, I am making it my mission to start new family traditions especially around the holidays.
Most of these traditions revolve around finding new family favourite recipes and being in the kitchen with my kids. Because of this, I was thrilled to be asked to try Sun-Maid's newest recipes just in time for Easter.
This recipe is my father’s but I have spent more than a few attempts trying to measure out into actual measurements his “little of this, little of that, a bit of wine for the soup, a bit of wine for me” approach to cooking.
The end result is a soup that is so easy to make, tastes fantastic and is definitely company-worthy.
If you're like me, you're busy, which means you're constantly on the look-out for quick, easy, make-ahead recipes that your family will actually eat. I like this meatloaf recipe because it is all of that and freezes well too.
When I asked my four-year-old son what he wanted to take to his class Valentine's Day party he quickly said "nothing pink." Then he told me he didn't want cake because everyone brings cake. I started thinking about Rice Krispies squares dipped in chocolate and he turned to me and said "Apple pie, Mommy. That's what I want to share with my friends."
Valentine's Day is next week and if you're like me your children are already asking what you plan on making for their class parties. This week I am going to bring you some creative and EASY recipes to help make you look like mom of the year without interfering with any of that other stuff you do (you know work, laundry, packing lunches, watching Greys...).
Out of all the recipes I’ve ever made, this one is the most asked for and like most of the recipes that are my childhood favourites, this one came from my grandmother’s kitchen. I am sure it was first featured in one of the many magazines she still receives, but over the last few decades we have sampled and perfected and created this version.
