Foodie Friday~ Beef Stroganoff!

If you are looking for a delicious meal to have on the table in 20 minutes flat, this is it! First off, most people have their own version of Beef Stroganoff, and that is OK…this is mine and I hope you’ll love it as much as we do!

We made this the other week after a VERY long day of doctors appointments and driving…I was feeling pretty cruddy by the time we got home but as soon as I opened the fridge and remembered we were making our Stroganoff I felt my stress begin to melt away! Just the thought of the sour cream and onions mixing with yummy tender beef and mushrooms (drooling over here!). Anyway, it’s a super quick, and fairly healthy meal to have on the table quickly which makes it a perfect weeknight meal! Serve with a side salad and you’re all set!

Look out next week for a birthday post! Eee! I celebrated my 30th (ahh) yesterday and we are doing the friends/family party this weekend! Guess where we are starting the day off? Axe Throwing!! I know right?! Can you believe they are going to let me throw an axe at a stationary object…I sure can’t 🙂 Looking forward to some fun memories this weekend,and I surely cannot wait to share them with all of you!

Enjoy <3

Foodie Friday Easter Edition!

Happy Easter everybody! I hope you get to take some time to spend with your loved ones over the next couple of days and fill your tummies with delicious meals!

Today I am sharing with you a yummy dish you can prepare ahead of time to enjoy through the week, and by making simple adjustments you can get multiple meals from it! It all started with an excess of chicken thighs in the fridge and my hubby telling me he didn’t want the “usual” chicken dishes we make…oh boy! I accepted the challenge and by the time he got home that night I had a hearty, simple meal on the table (which was gobbled up quicker than clean-up)!

The nice thing about this dish is that you can change it up a bit if you don’t have all the ingredients on hand, and can really customize it to your picky eaters. A nice Hearty Chicken and Dumplings (with my own little cheats for time) is exactly what you need to transition you from this cold winter weather to the freshness of Spring!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did (and by we, I not only mean me and my hubby but also my mom and a colleague who I shared the leftovers with…that’s how big this recipe is!). Nom Nom Nom!

Foodie Friday~ Creamy Carbonara

Oh here we go!! Spring in the air calls for a classic Pasta Carbonara…a yummy pasta dish with bacon, cheese, eggs, and peas (well in MY version anyway!). It is probably one of the easiest pasta dishes to make and it tastes like you spent hours making it! Sooo much flavour in only 15 minutes of time.

Many people may shy away from it because of the “raw” egg factor, but I promise you they cook once they hit the steaming pasta and hot bacon mixture! It is sure to be a yummy hit for your family this weekend, and like I said it only takes 15 minutes from START to FINISH (what could be better!).
