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…

Low carb chicken wings

I’m struggling to write this post, I’ve written and rewritten the first paragraph probably five times. I’m not 100% sure but I think it’s because I have a 3/4 finished power tools project sitting in my shed and I can’t wait to share it with you guys.

Sunday Funday Nachos

This past week I wanted two things to happen. 1) I wanted a lazy Sunday. 2) I wanted to eat some delicious nachos on that lazy Sunday. Specifically I wanted to eat the delicious nachos that I posted on my about me page.

Super easy low carb lasagna

I have a confession to make. I am a huge fan of meal prep but I’m not a consistent meal prepper. Well I shouldn’t say that. I consistently make meals for the week but I also consistently get bored

Deliciously spicy pulled pork

Before I dive into how amazing and easy this pulled pork recipe is I have to add a bit of a disclaimer. I love pork, I have all my life. I love it so much that I’ve stolen a line from Homer Simpson and refer to the pig as a “magical animal”. Despite this great…

An introduction of sorts

Lets start with the basics. I’m Desiree a Registered Nurse from a very small town on the East Coast of Canada. Since I was a little girl a few truths have ruled my life, purple is the best colour, being kind is always the right choice, and it is going to be a good day…
