Hi, I’m Chrissie!
It’s no surprise I grew up to enjoy cooking and baking after spending most of my childhood in the kitchen with my mom and both my grandmothers. Over the last twelve years I’ve spent countless hours in my own kitchen preparing food for my husband and children and our friends and family, and I have fallen in love with cooking and baking.
In our family we strive to eat as many whole foods as possible and to cook at home every day not only to save money but also to maintain a healthy diet. Baking is my catharsis, so when I’m stressed you’ll often find me in the kitchen kneading bread dough, mixing up a batch of muffins or throwing together a hearty soup…usually with my children playing happily at my feet! This blog is a place where I share my favourite recipes, kitchen tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way (often after a major kitchen blunder!), some of my tried and true ingredients and kitchen tools, and tips for maintaining a healthy diet while enjoying fresh foods that taste great! And a piece of cake every now and then…

I’d love it if you checked out some of MY favourite recipes!
Greek Yogurt Caesar Salad (my low-fat Caesar salad dressing that tastes just as good as the full-fat version!)
Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce (one of my favourite go-to weeknight meals that my whole family loves!)
The Perfect Pavlova (it’s the dessert that never fails me and always impresses dinner guests!)
Easy Greek Chicken Souvlaki (my favourite grilled chicken recipe that tastes just like it does in Greece!)
