Watermelon Pizza

Guys, have you met the easiest summer dessert you never made? It’s the Watermelon Pizza and, when it comes to treats, you can’t find anything that is as simple. Ok,

Why I Love This Video & Know You Will, Too

This makes me happy for three reasons: It stars Esme and Scarlett, Ceri and Laura’s enchanting daughters. Not only do I think it’s pretty cool that Ceri and Laura get to work with their families from time to time, I find few things more enjoyable than listening to kids chat with each other, particularly when it pertains to a rather complex topic.

Spaghetti with Pancetta and Spinach

My life as a mother is definitely made easier by social media outlets like youtube, Instagram and Twitter. It’s also made a lot harder by those on-line distractions.

Now, at 9, she still loves to establish her personality

Meal Plan June 27, 2016

You may think we’re throwing a curve ball into this week’s plan by including a slow cooker dinner but listen up! Summer is actually the best time to use our favourite appliance. It keeps the kitchen cooler than the stove or oven and that’s pretty much my top priority once we’re into July. Keep sharing your meal planning feedback with

The Best Baking for Dad

My daughter came home today with a school-made Father’s Day card. “I’d love to see it,” I said. With a deflated tone, Scarlett replied, “It’s the same card we always do.” And, sure enough, it was. It was that typical construction paper greeting that looks like a sport jacket over a shirt and tie that opens to reveal a special
