day 12

It’s day 12 everyone!

Thank you so much for following along the 12 days of Christmas as I went through holiday baking, decorating, fashion etc.

Today I am posting my holiday menu for tonight’s Christmas Eve dinner.


my homemade spinach dip- I don’t have a measurable recipe for the way I make it but this recipe looks awesome!

Smoked salmon rounds- purchase sliced pumpernickel load and use a cookie cutter to cut rounds. Use cake frosting pipe to make a round of chive cream cheese, place a piece of smoked salmon on top!

For more holiday appetizers check out this post!



Roast turkey (with crispy skin- yum!)

Slow cooking pot roast from M&M Meat Shops- comes ready to cook with marinade and it’s delicious

Garlic Mashed Potatoes (one of my favourite sides)

Cabbage Salad with Goat Cheese

Shredded Brussels Sprouts add bacon! (a family favourite)

Buns and homemade butter 


A guest is bringing an assortment so that will be a surprise 🙂

If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some dessert recipes I’ve posted about throughout our special

cookies, cakes, gingerbread treats, peppermint

Now back to the kitchen for me, wishing you all wonderful holidays!

dinner tonight- comfort food

Good morning everyone

I hope your week is going well so far.

As the weather gets colder I’ve been making a lot of comfort meals. Tonight i’m making one of my favourites!

Here’s what’s for dinner tonight

Creamy Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup

Tender, Flaky Biscuits

what’s for dinner tonight?

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. It is a beautiful sunny day here yet still chilly! We are going to be out and about this morning but this afternoon is all about cooking!


I am dreaming about cooking in this kitchen!

But for now in my own kitchen.. first I’m going to be making this creamy slow cooker tortellini soup for lunches later this week ( YUM!)

And then, as I was looking through photos of my trip this summer I was inspired by this Mediterranean macaroni and cheese.. comfort food gone gourmet!

For dessert? Mix and Match Mama always has great simple treats.. we’re having the pumpkin butterscotch no bake pie (it’s amazing the things you can do with frozen whipping topping!)

Stay tuned- I’ve been working on something exciting to come this week (it’s got a giveaway!)

enjoy your sunday, wishing you all a wonderful day!
