Stuffed Bell Peppers

These are delicious and flavourful! They were a huge hit at our house. This was the first time the kids had stuffed peppers and they thought they were very neat! Will definitely be making these again soon. Next time I will try these with quinoa for something different. I made mine with a mix of cheddar and mozzarella which made it really tasty! I love the cheesy goodness on top! This could also be made with ground pork or ground chicken. Would go great with some oven baked bread or…

BEST POTATO PANCAKES EVER

These potato pancakes are easy to make and delicious too. Eat them alongside a main dish for a change from regular mashed potatoes. Oh so good!

Make sure to not only drain the liquid, but to actually squeeze out the water in a kitchen towel. Time consuming, yes, but well worth the effort. This is a traditional potato pancake recipe, and is a wonderful comfort food. Serve with…

This doesn’t have to be a big rainy day baking project—it’s easy enough to make (and clean up!) on a whim. And you’ll still have time to hit the playground. Your…
