Meet Mom! The Lunch Lady

 Hello and Welcome to my blog! On Mom the Lunch Lady I focus on delicious and nutritious meals, that can be made quickly and with ease. As a working mom, I love to minimise my time in the kitchen, but still get healthful meals on the table. I am a big believer of everything in moderation, so you will find a combination of healthy and indulgent recipes, perfect for everyone in your family. It took me 41 yrs to finally make self care a priority, so I hope you enjoy some of the self care and nutrition tips I have to share with you.

I am a high school cafeteria manager, blogger and single Mom of 2 teenagers (boy and girl), who lives in Ontario Canada. Being a seasoned recipe developer and content creator has given me the opportunity to work with several brands such as The Little Potato Company, General Mills and Blue Dragon. I am passionate about food, and love creating wholesome, easy, beautiful, meals for my family. A baker by nature, I love anything sweet, but enjoy the freedom of creativity cooking allows. 

I would love to work with new brands and a chance to share my creative take and love for food with your customer base. If interested please contact me at cinlef2977@gmail.com for my rates and availability. Unfortunately I am not looking for any guest bloggers at this time.

I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I enjoy creating them!

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
