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!

What are your plans for the weekend? It’s freezing here so I’m hoping to stay indoors as much as possible!

Tonight’s dinner is a comfort meal- perfect for a warm night in

Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna with a garden salad

(I love this recipe because you can freeze individual pieces for lunches or quick dinners and it’s still delicious!)

For dessert: Home made chai tea latte and left over christmas cookies..

We’re also working on ideas for a sweet girl’s 13th birthday in February.. This is what’s on the inspiration board so far

Recipes for Holiday Leftovers

818d3d6677940ae32002b380747e1405

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had wonderful holidays!

I had a great time with friends and family and got to play host a few times as well. I know most of you (like me )probably have quite a few leftovers in your fridge, so I thought today I would share some ideas on how to make use of those classic leftovers.

Here are some yummy, simple recipes to try this weekend

Turkey

Easy turkey sandwiches: mix mayo, chopped celery, turkey, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add to toasted bread and serve with a bowl of your favourite soup (this was our lunch today it was simple and it was delicious!)

Turkey Noodle Soup – this homemade option is great but if you are pressed for time just add leftover turkey to a packaged Lipton soup.

Turkey Chili & Rice Tacos

Turkey Caesar Salad

Ham

Ham & Swiss Pinwheels ( the perfect appetizer, breakfast or snack) Roll out one sheet of puff pastry – you can find this in the frozen section at the grocery store. Add leftover ham and swiss, roll and cut into pinwheels. Bake according to package directions. YUM!

Cuban Fried Rice

Wild Rice & Ham Chowder

Ham & Cheese Quiche

Mashed Potatoes

Potato Cakes

Shepherd’s Pie

Pierogies

Potato Salmon Cakes

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.

Appetizers

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!

Dinner

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 

Dessert

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!

I’ll be starting a 12 days of Christmas special starting tomorrow! Stay tuned for everything holiday related from home decor to recipes!

wishing you all a wonderful Thursday!

the cookie exchange

Ah it is already December 6th! Can you guys believe Christmas is just 19 days away.

This weekend we are hosting a cookie exchange and I absolutely love this tradition for getting friends & family together.

For those of you who have yet to have one of these parties, you have to try it! It is so much fun and can be done 2 ways.

1. Get all attendees to bring a batch of cookies then set-up buffet style for everyone to grab a few of each and take home a mixed box.

2. Everyone brings a recipe and spends the day baking together- you then get to bring home a few of each type.

Here’s some inspiration
