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!

Mexican Sausage, Black Beans and Rice

Check out this one pot meal and use plant based sausages if you want to keep it vegetarian.


1/2 lb Mexican or Italian sausage, sliced

1 onion, diced

2 tbsps olive oil

3 tsps minced garlic

1 bell pepper, diced

1 1/2 cups uncooked rice

4 cups chicken or vegetable broth

2 tsps ground cumin

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp black pepper

pinch of red pepper flakes

2 tsps hot sauce

1/2 cup kernel corn

19 oz (540ml) can black beans, rinsed and drained


Heat the oil in a large skillet to medium. Add the onion and pepper and cook for 3-5 minutes then add the garlic for 30 seconds before adding the sausage slices. Brown the meat 5-6 minutes then add the rice. Stir and heat 1-2 minutes then pour in the broth. Add the seasonings, corn, black beans and hot sauce. Bring to a boil and scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pan, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

Finally, still  on low temp, cover for 10-15 until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Serves 4
