It feels like this summer has been the summer of the Minion - with release of the movie Minions those little guys are popping up everywhere. We have already been to one Minions birthday party and will no doubt see more Minions birthday parties this year. Need some inspiration for a Minion Birthday party of your own? Check out these Minion Birthday party ideas for a fun
I have some big plans for this summer. It is Canada's 150th birthday, and our National Parks are offering free admission for all of 2017! I haven't done much camping in the last 10 years, but would like to get back into it. Now I am not ready to dive into outback camping with the kids yet, but would love to do some day trips to the Ontario Parks to explore and introduce them
Fake news seems to be everywhere these days. It is so common place that it is hard to separate the truth from all the other fluff out there on the interwebs and social media. Misconceptions and rumors about food can run rampant, but today we are setting the record straight when it comes to KFC. I have a bit of passion for dispelling myths when it comes to food, my
When I was 15 years old, I moved with my parents from a city with over 300,000 people in it, to the middle of a farmer's field. You might think I'm exaggerating, but the town we moved to had less than 2000 people in it (which was smaller than then the high school I was attending at the time). We didn't even live “in town", but rather, a 10 minute drive from the
As much as I love the warmth of summer, I do appreciate a lovely fall. It's a lot of fun to be festive with decorations and food! I'm a big fan of seasonal baking and fall is one of my favourites...did someone say pumpkin spice?? With fall officially here I thought I'd share a collection of some of the best fall dessert recipes I've come across. Let's get
While it's still nice and warm in Ontario right now the nights are getting chillier and the days are getting shorter. For our family that means switching over to our fall/winter menu. We focus on a lot of hardy warm meals for these seasons such as soups, chili and pasta dishes. A combination that comes up a lot for us is corn and sausage (I add both to our chili recipe).
Nothing goes down easier than a chicken sandwich, especially in the summer! One of the best things about chicken sandwiches is all the different varieties. The chicken can be roasted, breaded, fried or my favourite - barbecued, not to mention the different sauces and toppings that add so much flavor! My love of chicken sandwiches is one of the reasons I'm happy to announce
As parents we are always trying set a good example for our kids. We work hard to teach them right from wrong, how to be polite, and set them on the road to success. Milestones like taking their first steps and learning to write their name are celebrated. But along the way, we sometimes forget one thing that is critical to your child's success and future health.
You know you're a parent when going to the grocery store by yourself is like an all-inclusive vacation. Taking my 3 little ones can be like trying to herd cats while searching for elusive groceries that always seem to be moving places in the store. It is no small task to come up with home cooked meals for my family of 5 that everyone will enjoy, or at least try. We
This time of year can be so busy! Just when we are supposed to be focusing on giving back to others, and spending time with our loved ones. Between work, Christmas concerts and shopping it can feel like there is not a free moment to spare. That is when it when it is time to work smarter not harder. Don't worry Little Miss Kate is here to help you out with some holiday hacks
Have you swung by Tim Horton's lately? Sorry, that is a silly question it is summer and of course everyone is enjoying Ice Capps and Creamy Chocolate Chills (my new fav!). While you were at Tim's did you happen to notice the newest addition to the menu? The Love Reese to Pieces Donut?!? To say I was excited about this donut is an understatement. My love for chocolate and
Last week Monkey, Baby Roo and I headed out on an adventure to Toronto for the day. I was not 100% sure where our adventure would take us, but knew a stop at the YouAreWelcome Food Truck was a must. The YouAreWelcome Food Truck is visiting Toronto during the Pan Am games and serving up some delicious samples of authentic Ojibway cuisine. The Mississaugas of the New
