Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing

An addictive twist on poppyseed dressing!





Poppyseed dressing has always been one of my favourites. I love the contrast of the sweetness, tart bite of the apple cider vinegar and onion flavour. When I had strawberries I needed to use up, I decided to add them to my favourite dressing for a new twist.

With strawberry season right around the corner, this is a delicious way to use some of them.  I must say, this is an amazing dressing! It's sweet and tart, smooth and creamy, and it looks so pretty! I decided to serve it on a spinach salad, with additional fresh strawberries, feta cheese and pistachios. A-MA-ZING!





Strawberry Poppy Seed Dressing

5 large strawberries, huled (about 1/2 C)
1/4 C yellow onion, chopped
zest and juice of one clementine
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
2-3 Tbs honey (depending on how sweet your berries are)
1 Tbs honey Dijon mustard
generous pinch of coarse sea salt
fresh ground pepper
1/4- 1/3 C olive oil
1 1/2 tsp poppy seeds

Place berries in a food processor, with the onions, clementine juice and zest, apple cider vinegar, honey, honey Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. With blades going, slowly stream in the olive oil, until dressing loosens enough to be pourable and is silky smooth. Remove blade from processor bowl and stir in the poppy seeds. Pour into a mason jar and refrigerate until ready to use. Will keep up to 7 days in the fridge.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.

Even though my health isn't the greatest, we haven't been living like hermits. We don our masks, bring hand sanitizer and make sure to social distance. So a trip to our local pumpkin patch, to pick our pumpkins, is one way we will be bringing a bit of n…
