The weekend begins today and I only have one more post after this for Superbowl inspiration.

The modern take on traditional party food- Flatbread pizzas are bite size, so delicious and easy to make- definitely a crowd pleaser

Buffalo Chicken

Chicken & Black Bean

BBQ Chicken

Mexican Hamburger Flatbread

Pesto, Mozzarella & Sun-dried Tomato

My favourite? Artichoke dip as the base, chicken, bacon, chopped spinach and goat cheese YUM!

You add pretty much any topping and it will be a great appetizer or meal.

I promised you guys some yummy dinner recipes this week so here’s the first!

We had White Chicken Lasagna last night and it was so good! I love this dinner with a salad-and it freezes well, perfect for nights when you don’t want to cook or don’t have time to!

This week we’ll talk about DIY home organization, more dinner recipes and some wedding trends for 2014.

wishing you all a wonderful day!

gourmet sandwiches

Good morning!

Last week I posted about some of my favourite soup recipes, one of my favourite pairings for soup is a yummy sandwich (a great with salad too of course).

Last night we had gourmet sandwiches and soup for dinner- it was delicious and simple!

The Gourmet Grilled Cheese: this is a go-to in our home. use your favourite bread, fill with mozzarella, avocado and bacon then grill on a george foreman or cook as you would a grilled cheese.

Turkey, Apple & Brie: this is a delicious sandwich which tastes gourmet yet is so easy to make. It’s great for days when you have turkey leftovers. Slice your favourite bread, spread whichever dressing you like (we like honey dijon mustard), add turkey, brie and thinly sliced apples. YUM!

Brie, Steak & Arugula Sandwich

The Gourmet BLT

Crockpot Chicken Teriyaki Sandwiches
