Haunted Kitchen Chairs

Our kitchen chairs may be haunted. Ok, honestly, I do not believe in ghosts or anything of the sort, but it is fun to say that our kitchen chairs (or at least 2 of them) are haunted.  Why would I say such a thing? Well, as you know, we are in the process of trying… Continue reading Haunted Kitchen Chairs

Homemade Sushi: Date Night

A little while ago, when my family came to visit, I enlisted my brother’s help to gather supplies for a surprise for my husband. Since my brother spend a semester abroad in Japan, and has made sushi several times before, I asked him to take me to a local international market to gather supplies so… Continue reading Homemade Sushi: Date Night

Re-upholstering Kitchen Chairs

We have a lovely little cherry kitchen table, that I inherited from my grandma.  There was only one thing wrong with it: the seat covers were made of a horrible material.

The Family Visits!

Last week, my family came to visit! They arrived Sunday afternoon, and we spent most of the afternoon relaxing and catching up.  For dinner, I pulled out my lovely, lovely new find: Two days before my family arrived, I found a 3-piece pasta attachment set for my KitchenAid stand mixer…for $30.  Yes, $30.  Typically it… Continue reading The Family Visits!

Spinach-Feta Spaghetti Bake

Chicken parmesan can be so delicious…and so… not healthy. But I knew my husband loves spaghetti, and the idea of simple, comforting chicken parmesan sounded appealing to me.  I decided to change up the flavours and try to make it slightly less unhealthy in this recipe. First, there is actually very little parmesan cheese.  But… Continue reading Spinach-Feta Spaghetti Bake
