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!

Pesto Beef Stir Fry

No other seasonings. All the flavourings needed are right there in the pesto! Store bought pesto is ok, but check out the easy homemade pesto recipe at the end of this post.


3/4 lb inside round sandwich steak

2 tbsps olive oil

1 onion, sliced

1 red pepper, sliced

2 heaping tbsps pesto (store bought or homemade)

1/2 cup vegetable or beef broth

2 cups thick sliced mushrooms

Smear 2 tbsps pesto with thinly sliced beef that has been cut across the grain. Refrigerate for 4 or 5 hours.

When ready to cook heat olive oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the onion, red pepper and mushrooms. Cook 3-5 minutes then remove to a plate.

Add the meat to the same fry pan. It will cook quickly... about 3 minutes.

Add the broth and bring to a boil. Simmer a few minutes until the broth is reduced.

Return the veggies to the pan and heat through 1-2 minutes.

Serves 2. Delicious with garlic mashed potatoes!
