Guess what Canada?!? REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread has finally made it's way to Canada! I had stumbled upon it while visiting my Mother in Law last year and was hoping us Canadians would get in on the Peanut Butter Chocolate action too. Boy am I glad we did! If you are a fan of the irresistible REESE Peanut Butter Cups, then you have got to try their new spread!


When a few jars arrived at the house, Queenie quickly laid claim to them. I explained that I wanted to try and make a recipe using the spread and she agreed that I could have one of the two jars for baking, LOL. She's been enjoying the spread on toast in the morning and we've all been enjoying it with apple slices. A deliciously fun way to jazz up snack time!

I knew right away I wanted to try and create a cheesecake brownie, with the spread. My girlfriends and I were planning a back to school BBQ during Labour Day weekend, so I quickly volunteered to bring dessert. Let me tell you, as soon as they heard the six words- REESE Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies, they could barely wait to try them. 


I incorporated this addictive smooth, chocolaty peanut butter spread into the cheesecake filling and chocolate ganache for these cheesecake brownies. The result was fantastic!

Bake in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes; until cheesecake is set. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. 


For the ganache, in a small pot melt together the chocolate and REESE Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread. Once melted, whisk in the cream until mixture is smooth and silky. Pour over cooled cheesecake brownie and sprinkle with chopped REESE Peanut Butter Cups. Place in refrigerator to set.

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.
