Breakfast Egg Muffins with Pepper and Green Onion
This recipe makes a breakfast egg muffin that is bursting with flavour coming in under 90 calories. A couple of time savers for you: If you have or can buy an inexpensive mini whisk, you can mix the egg right in the muffin pan with no need for an extra bowl I like to...
Crispy Grilled Boneless Chicken Thighs
These crispy chicken thighs are by far one of my favourite recipes. They are quick and easy to make and have so much flavour.
They are also budget-friendly if you debone your own chicken thighs, which if you want boneless chicken with the skin left on you will pretty much have to learn to do this yourself.
You can save even more if you buy when chicken is on sale, debone and then freeze to pull out and grill as needed.
They make great sandwiches or wraps and are amazing sliced to use in a salad or in a pasta dish.
Roasted Pan Veggies
A side of sweet roasted vegetables is a great addition to any meal. This is a quick and easy recipe that can cook while you prepare the rest of your dinner.
We have used red and yellow peppers as well as green zucchini, but feel free to use any colour of pepper or yellow zucchini.
These roasted veggies are also great for wraps and sandwiches, so make extra to use the next day.
Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Wraps
If you can plan ahead and use leftover chicken and roasted vegetables from dinner, these delicious wraps will be ready in just a few minutes for lunch the next day at home or on the go.
We have included the recipe and instructions to make them from scratch – be sure to double up so you can have them the next day too!
Creamy Mushroom Soup
If you are a mushroom lover then you have to try this recipe.
Add in a variety of your favourite mushrooms in the last step for an amazing mushroom burst of flavour. My favourite is sliced king oyster mushrooms. This is delicious served with garlic toast.
Classic Tomato Soup
5 simple everyday ingredients – tomatoes, carrots, onions, garlic and basil are the foundation of this classic tomato soup recipe. You won’t believe how easy this is to make!
Butternut Squash Soup
A simple homey classic with all the warm comforting flavours of fall. Roasting the vegetables brings out the deep rich flavours for a perfect meal.
Fresh Tomato Bruschetta
This is a quick and easy way to make Bruschetta with all the bold flavours but without the need to peel the tomatoes, which can be a little bit of a messy process.
It’s a great way to use all of your summer cherry tomato and basil crop from the garden.
