Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie

Do you love snickerdoodle cookies? Then you should think about trying a huge one made in a cast iron skillet!

I cannot believe that it is May already!

First Monday of the month, counting down the days until the end of the school year. Because in the meantime, I have no time or energy to come up with recipe ideas for my blog.

Luckily for me, it is the secret recipe club reveal day, which means that I didn't even need to come up with a creative recipe idea. I just test out a different blogger's creations!

Pepperoni Skillet Pizza

A pepperoni pizza recipe that will keep you coming back for more! Deep dish pizza in a cast iron skillet.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a bag of sliced pepperoni. This bag didn't look like much. It was 500g worth which I thought would be perfect for a couple of pizzas, and it would be done. Boy, was I wrong!

I have been making this pepperoni pizza weekly since then, and it doesn't even look like I scratched the surface of the pepperoni in the bag! Which only means, in the weeks ahead, expect to see more pepperoni recipes on the blog.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions on other things to make using pepperoni, I would very much appreciate it.

Pumpkin Molasses Cookies

These pumpkin molasses cookies are the ultimate fall cookie! And they so soft and fluffy, you won't be able to stop eating them.

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to making cookies.

I find that when I have a bowl, some flour, some butter and some sugar, anything is possible. It is also my zen place. A place where all my troubles and stresses can evaporate into thin air while I mix and mash and create.

Another advantage to cookie making is licking the spoon. Always lick the spoon.

Leaving home at 7AM and returning at 7PM is really not agreeing with my dinner planning right now.

When I finally get home, all I want to do is flop down on my comfiest chair, eat brownies while watching Netflix and immediately fall asleep. Because that's what grown ups do. Which means that my boyfriend is on dinner duty every night.

But even though I get home famished and hangry, I always insist on making dinner at least one day from Monday to Friday. Otherwise I feel like I'm not pulling my weight in our little home.

Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

Cheesy hashbrown casserole that is so easy to make! The crunchy cornflake topping is one of the best things to happen on this casserole.

I know I have been quite on here for the past week, but I have a good reason. Not a particularly fun reason, but one that involves piles and piles of work.

Our school had an inspection yesterday, and all of us teachers were clamoring to refine (and type out) our lesson plans for this year and last year, with all of the curriculum expectations included. And though this might not sound like a lot of work, believe me. It is. I was staying up until 1AM every day and waking up at 6AM. When people tell me teachers get paid too much, they should really take into account all of the unpaid work we do. Which is about 50% of our work.

Pumpkin, apples and banana come together to make these incredibly moist and easy muffins! Perfect for an on-the-go breakfast.

Over the years, I have become less and less of a morning person.

I am not sure what it is. Before, I could go to sleep at midnight and wake up 6 AM no problem. Now, it's a struggle for me to wake up in the morning to go to work. It's times like these when I need a better grab and go breakfast idea than a box of granola bars. This is where a good muffin recipe comes in.

How to remove Mustard Stains using Resolve Gold In-Wash Stain Remover

As a food blogger, I am constantly getting stains on my shirts. Mustard, butter, tea, sauce, coffee... the list goes on. And having all these stains on my clothes or napkins can get very frustrating. Especially when trying to remove them.
