**Updated Feb 2021. Originally published May 2020** Popeye muffins are one of the girls’ favorites. I started making these when the girls were too young to eat leafy greens but old enough to eat more than pureed meals. They were an instant hit then, and luckily they still are now. Vibrant green, sweet and soft….… Continue reading →

This easy smoked baby back ribs recipe results in the most succulent, tender and juicy ribs ever!! For the most flavor, rub the ribs with the spice rub a day or two before smoking (if you don’t have the time you can smoke the ribs directly). Be sure to use heavy duty aluminum foil when wrapping the ribs, as you don’t want any of the juices to escape. I love to serve these smoked ribs with jalapeño cheddar cornbread muffins or roasted oven fries (and plenty of paper towels ?). Check out some of my other favorite serving suggestions above. If you don't have a smoker, I've included instructions on how to cook the ribs in the notes below!

Everyone in our household has a sweet tooth! I try to cater to their desires, but without caving in to demands for small mountains of refined white sugar. I make smoothies for them as treats. Of course fruits are full of natural sugars, but the vitamins and minerals they contain make them a far better alternative, in my opinion, to the empty calories of a chocolate bar. This recipe for apple pie smoothie reminds the family of my apple cinnamon muffins (a big favourite at our house), satisfies their appetite for something sweet, the yoghurt fills them, and the recipe gets in one of their five a day plus antioxidants and minerals too, from the two fruits and two spices.

Adapted from Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker: Reinvent the Slow Cooked Meal, by Nicki Sizemore (Storey Publishing, 2019). This is my very favorite beef chili; it’s reminiscent of the versions I grew up with in the Midwest but with an amplified, rich flavor that I crave every snow day, game day or plain ‘ole Sunday. I know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but they’re mostly things you’ll have in your pantry and spice cabinet. A chipotle chili gives the chili a kick of spice, maple syrup lends sweetness, tamari imparts savory “umami-ness” and beer’s pleasant bitterness balances everything out. The chili is even better the next day. I love to serve it with these with Jalapeño Cheddar Spoonbread Muffins.
