Spicy Buffalo Ranch Chicken Meatballs

When I gave these to Chris for dinner the other night (Dillon is on an afternoon shift right now), I thought that this time I overdid it with the spicy part lol. It took 2 glasses of milk and a runny nose, but he did eat them all and enjoy them lol!

This is an easy recipe to make and if you do as I did and double it, it’s an extra “Freezer Meal” for another day This is the time of year that I try to make double of whatever I am making to freeze for the busy month of December when cooking time is at a minimum, ensuring I not only get the Christmas stuff done I want to but that everyone is also being fed good homemade meals with little effort on my part!

Christmas Leftover Poutine 

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I thought I would repost this recipe/directions to make Poutine with leftover turkey and the fixings.  It is a great Boxing Day meal and is very easy to make.  It is also a great way to use up any leftovers you might have !

Homemade Tomato Soup

Not only homemade… but made with tomatoes from my garden!!!

A family member isn’t feeling up to par, so I thought I would make a few different kinds of soup for them. I don’t know about anyone else, but hot, homemade soup always makes me feel better. There are some soups that are always my go to when feeling under the weather, but I think any soup that someone else makes for you is definitely going to hit the spot!

(Sorry about the picture… because I was making it for someone else, and freezing it, the picture isn’t the greatest!)

Busy Day Soup via www.sipalaw.net

I saw the recipe for this soup when I was looking on Pinterest, procrastinating about finishing washing the walls.

It looked so good that I wanted to share the recipe with everyone!

The recipe can be found at: https://www.sipalaw.net/2019/07/busy-day-soup.html

Doesn’t this look delicious? Definitely something I plan to add to our fall/winter soup rotation!


Jerk Chicken Wings (Baked)

I was making Pizza and Wings for dinner the other night and I can’t for the life of me remember if I have posted them before so I decided I would post it anyway…. just in case! I am pretty sure I have posted a regular jerk chicken recipe, just not wings.

Chris says these are the best wings around… and he is a chicken wing connoisseur lol. I make my own jerk seasoning/marinade, let the wings marinate in it for at least 6 hours and then bake the wings… yes… bake. And they are absolutely delicious! I used the Pizza Hut Copycat recipe for the pizza that I always use now and we had better than take out Pizza and Wings for dinner!

Braided Egg Bread

With the cooler weather making it’s annual come back, having the smell of freshly baking bread seems to fit right in. This time I made another family favourite… a Braided Egg Bread.

This is an easy to make bread, it just takes a little longer to prepare the bread dough because the eggs need to be added slowly. But it is well worth that little bit of extra time!

It smells great baking and tastes even better… especially straight from the oven!

Montreal Steak Spice

Again I have no post for today. My mind is on other things/people.. but I didn’t want to have nothing posted.

I posted this recipe in early July and so far this year I’ve had to make 3 batches!!! That is how good it is lol! That is why I thought I could get away with sharing it again !

Let me start by saying that Chris LOVES bbq… and even more so… bbqed steaks. He likes them cooked most ways, with or without bbq sauce, with steak sauce, but especially with this spice mixture. When we rub/bbq them with this he doesn’t use any bbq or steak sauce on them… that’s how good they taste!

This takes all of about 5 minutes to make, and if you don’t shake the jar the layers look great in the jar for gifting!


Here are the ingredients. (Except for the salt and pepper 😳)

Measure all the spices into your jar (see what I mean about the layers?)

Shake the jar and it’s ready to use!

Rub it on your (room temperature) steaks about a half hour before you start to bbq….

Bbq to desired doneness and enjoy the wonderful flavour!


  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. Coarse salt
  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. coriander
  • 1 tbsp. dill
  • 1 tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Measure all ingredients into jar.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Rub onto room temperature steaks half hour before cooking.
  4. Cook to desired doneness.
