Crock Pot Taco Casserole

Now, I call this a casserole but it really has more of a chili consistency than casserole but I’m still sticking with that name. As we talked about last summer with our Who says Crock Pots are only for Winter post, crock pot recipes are great for when you don’t feel like bbqing and it’s too hot to turn on the oven, while still getting a proper meal!

Jello & Kool-Aid Popsicles

With the hot weather here already, it is nice to have a frozen treat or two ready to beat the heat.  These popsicles are very flavourful and  almost drip free which is great when making them for the little ones! I can remember my ex mother-in-law making these every summer for my kids and their cousins.  The kids (and adults) loved them! It was that memory that prompted me to make them yesterday.

I also made my version of Iced Coffee yesterday, another great treat on a hot day!

Easy Fresh Fruit Salad

I’m back…. we got a bit busy outside… yes, I was gardening again but I also ended up not feeling well because of the heat and my own stupidity of not wearing a hat out when I was doing my planting.  I gave in and bought an ugly but effective hat from the dollar store so hopefully I can avoid this in future.

The weather has been so hot the past week that I figured it was the perfect time to make a few salads… one being this refreshing fresh fruit salad!

Fruit “Filled” Muffins (Copycat “Fruit Explosion Muffins”)

I have a favourite muffin I get whenever I am at a certain coffee shop.  They do not call it fruit filled muffins, it has “explosion” in the name.

When I was making some lunch box treats the other day I thought I would like to try making my own version of these muffins so we can have them more often.  While mine aren’t as “pretty and perfect” looking as this certain coffee shop, the taste is just about bang on!
