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!

Tuscan Chickpea Salad

As a light summer meal (is summer ever going to get here?), a quick and nutritious side dish or a packed lunch that your co-workers will be envious of, you'll be wanting to make this Mediterranean salad on repeat all summer.


6 oz jar marinated artichokes, drained
1 roasted bell pepper, diced
19 oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
fresh parsley

1/3 cup light olive oil
3 tbsps red wine vinegar
3 tsps honey
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dry basil (1-2 tbsps fresh)
1 tsp dry oregano (2 tbsps fresh)
salt and pepper

Combine all the veggies in a large bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients in a jar, shaking well to dissolve the honey. Pour into the bowl and toss to coat. This salad can be made a couple of days in advance. Just top with fresh chopped parsley.
Serves 6
