I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chicken Chop Suey

Super quick weeknight meal packed with lots of good stuff for you!  Using chicken instead of beef means less cholesterol and saturated fat, so good for your heart. And all those bean sprouts are high in fibre as well as high in choline, a B vitamin important for a healthy liver.


1 lb ground chicken
salt and pepper to taste
2 onions, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
1 carrot, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
300 g (about 2 cups) snow peas
370 g pkg bean sprouts
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup soya sauce or tamari
2 tbsps cornstarch

In a large skillet or wok brown the ground chicken until no pink remains, add salt and pepper here, then add the onion, celery and carrots cut in thick slices. Cook on medium high 5 minutes.
Next add the garlic, ginger, snow peas and bean sprouts. Toss together and cook 3-4 minutes.

And finally make a well in the center of the pan. Whisk together the chicken broth, soya or tamari and cornstarch and immediately pour into the well then stir through the meat and veggies. Cook on medium a minute or two until thickened enough to coat everything.

This meal has a lot going for it so what are you waiting for?
Get cooking! Chop chop!!!
Serves 4
