Spinach & Artichoke Lasagna


Can we all agree that lasagna is pure comfort food?  I’m sure we can.  I found this veggie lasagna recipe from Beth over at Budget Bytes and I had to share it with you because this lasagna is just so awesome.  This juicy recipe is FOOL-PROOF and the first time I made it, it was a huge hit! I made a few slight adjustments but the flavour is all the same.  The best part of this recipe is that it is SO EASY to make for two main reasons. The recipe calls for No-Boil lasagna noodles and a jar of marinara sauce.  So you don’t have to boil noodles or make your sauce from scratch (unless you really want to).  I also used a smaller and deeper baking dish to give a thicker layered piece of lasagna on my plate. The original recipe calls for a 9×11″ pan.  I used a glass Pyrex 2.75 quart (2.6L) baking dish. The lasagna held together beautifully.  Get ready for rave reviews!

On a side note, I probably over did it with photos (like I do with all of my posts, but that’s just me). I didn’t want you to miss out on any steps or beauty shots. I also want to encourage you to get the ingredients this week and make it!  Serve with my Greek Salad for a complete meal.  I’ve got you covered ; ) Continue reading

Chili Macaroni n’ Cheese


Winter is my favourite season — hands down.   I will take the coldest winter day over the hottest summer day, any day of the year.  To me, cooking in the winter is FAR more enjoyable than in the summer.  Chili Macaroni n’ Cheese is a vegetarian pantry recipe that you can whip up in no time.  So good and comforting on a “winter day”.  Lots of beans to bring up the fiber count and keep you filled up! The only non-pantry ingredients are: Onion, Garlic, and Cheddar Cheese.  Serve with a fresh garden salad.  For a fast week night or an easy weekend meal you can’t go wrong with this one!
