Turkey Taco Party Cups {w/Recipe & Giveaway}

Disclosure: This post is sponsored in partnership with Canadian Turkey. As always, all opinions are our own. When I look back, it honestly feels like just a couple weeks ago that we were relaxing outside on our deck. Right now that same deck is covered in many centimetres of snow! With the holidays looming, leisurely reading on the deck has been replaced with frantic shopping, cleaning, and baking. While we are trying to somewhat “cut back” on the madness, we still want to celebrate the … [Read more...]

Disclosure: This post is sponsored in partnership with Canadian Turkey. As always, all opinions are our own. This past winter seemed to last forever.  I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to finally be able to go outside without freezing! It’s so nice to sit on the deck with family and friends, enjoying amazing food and the great outdoors.  We love having people over for dinner, so our outdoor time often revolves around barbecuing...because let’s face it, barbecuing is simple, quick, and … [Read more...]

Thankfully, when I look out my windows now, I’m starting to see some signs of life!  Fresh green grass is sprouting up on the lawn, there are buds on the trees and the temperatures are now consistently on the plus side of the thermometer! Spring is finally here and everyone is starting to make plans for the warmer days … [Read more...]

Bountiful Breakfast Bowl with Turkey Sausage

Disclosure: This post is sponsored in partnership with Canadian Turkey. As always, all opinions are our own. I love the slow, easy pace of this time of year. The hectic holidays are just a memory and life has settled back into somewhat of a routine. Work and school have resumed and the off hours are reserved for fun winter activities like ice skating, tobogganing, skiing and snowshoeing. The cold weather and lots of outdoor activities make the winter months the perfect time of year for … [Read more...]

Mushroom, Leek and Turkey Sausage Stuffing

I don't know exactly where it went, but boy oh boy, did this summer ever fly by! Honestly, it just seems like a few weeks ago that our daughter and her two sweet puppies were home for a visit...and that was the end of May! Already, many of our trees are starting to show their stunning colours of gold, orange, and red. The days are still comfortably warm, but there is a definite nip in the air once the sun goes down. This is the time of year when I love to bake pumpkin muffins, apple pies, … [Read more...]

BBQ Turkey Sausage, Potatoes and Vegetable Foil Packs

I love summer!  It's just an entirely different pace than the rest of the year. Even when we're not officially on "vacation", for me, the entire season feels somewhat like a vacation.  Life seems to slow down and the summer vibe is more relaxed. Even though we still eat as nutritiously as possible, preparation and execution are much more laid back in the summer. Think barbecue! Canadians are crazy for BBQ season. And nothing says summer barbeque better than putting juicy, tasty turkey on the … [Read more...]

Grilled Turkey Sausage and Summer Greens Pizza

This past winter, I can vividly remember looking out the windows at the mounds of snow surrounding our house and mentally counting the days until warmer weather.  Now finally, after a long cold winter, the warm summer days and nights have arrived.  Very soon now, summer vacations will begin and the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer that we dreamed about all winter will become a reality! While I still don't mind spending the occasional afternoon in the kitchen, puttering around and making a big … [Read more...]

Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing

  Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing I love to roast a whole turkey on the weekend.  The house is filled with the most mouth-watering aromas and there is just something so homey and comforting about those delicious smells wafting from the oven. Plus, (shhh...don't tell my family, they think I slave over a hot oven all day), but a traditional roast turkey dinner is one of the easier meals to prepare. And, not only is it a delicious dinner on Saturday or Sunday...big … [Read more...]

Southern Italian Turkey Pasta Puttanesca {w/Video}

I didn't grow up having traditional "Sunday dinners", however, my husband's family did. When we were first married and when our children were little, we ALWAYS went to my in-laws for a big dinner every weekend. As the years went by and my in-laws became older, the dinners were held more and more often at our home.  Even now, with our grown children scattered across the country, it is a tradition my hubby and I continue each week. And, both of our kids, even though they live alone, almost … [Read more...]

Traditional Roast Turkey with Apricot & Pecan Stuffing

The upcoming holiday season is by far, my favourite time of the year. And, I think the word "season" describes it perfectly, because the holidays are so much more than just a single day. This seems the only time of the year that we all share a joint purpose. It’s like some unwritten contract that we have all signed, promising to be more charitable, appreciative, tolerant and most of all, nicer to each other. It’s funny, but when I think about the holidays, my thoughts are never about gifts, … [Read more...]
