Vacation deserts

Maddie and I are on location again this week. I had a few extra days off so we packed up the car and headed to my parents house in Northern New Brunswick. So far its been pretty relaxing. Maddie was quite pleased with the seating arrangements and the view while she was getting brushed the…

Table makeover

In one of my first posts I shared a picture of my dinning room table. I’ve had a love hate relationship with this table since I made it. I love that I built it myself but I hated the colour of the table top. I have wanted to change it since the day I put…

Quick Balsamic Chicken

This week has been a little hectic for me. On top of my usual crazy schedule my mother and a friend are visiting, I listed my house for sale and I started looking at new houses. When it came time to do a little meal prep I was drawing a complete blank. I knew I…

A Campers Breakfast

This past weekend Maddie, the Official Taste Tester and I went camping. This outing went much better than our last. The odds were in our favour this time, I wasn’t sick, I wasn’t post nights and the weather man said it was going to be sunny.  This time we headed to Graves Island Provincial Park. …

Spicy Spaghetti Squash Boats

For some reason lately I can’t get enough spicy foods. I’ve never really disliked spicy foods but they have never been my go to foods. Lately though I’ve been reaching for the hot sauce more and more often. I blame my official taste tester, he could be a poster boy for Franks hot sauce, he…

Fajita Bowls

The past two weeks I’ve been seriously slacking on making real meals. I’ve basically been living off of store bought rotisserie chicken, bagged salads and lots of coffee.  I’ve been busy getting my house ready to list when you add in my regular crazy (self inflicted) schedule something had to give and this time it was…

Best of intentions

This weeks blog post isn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. I had planned on delivering a delicious recipe for my grandmothers chocolate chip cookies or a fun post about making over my dinning room table. Sadly the week got away from me. My parents were visiting and we worked the week away…

Chicken Soup for the campers soul

This past weekend my official taste tester, Mad Dog and I went camping. To be honest I was a little worried, I love camping but I haven’t gone much and May on the East Coast isn’t exactly warm. Even though I was worried about staying warm and my lack of experience I was excited to…

Crack Slaw

This week has been kind of crazy for me, some extra stressors, a cold and just not enough time or energy to go around. So when it came time to make my lunches for night shifts I wanted something super easy and quick. This recipe delivered on both. Actually this is probably one of my…

Dresser makeover

Hey guys! It’s finally here! The first power tools post! I’ve been wanting to do this project for a long time, but for some reason I just kept putting it off.  I’ve had this dresser for as long as I can remember and I’m pretty sure my mum had it before then. This thing has been…
