It’s that time of year that I like to try cook EVERYTHING on the BBQ. But I still try to plan ahead with these meals too. As most of my meat I buy in bulk, I like to separate the meat into serving size portions for the family (ie. family of 4, 4 chicken breasts to a ziplock bag) and add these super tasty marinades) to the bag.
Some mornings we are in such a rush, I don’t have time to make a breakfast or let the kids eat at the kitchen table. Those are the mornings I reach for my Ninja. My Ninja blender that is. Smoothies are so versatile and are a great way for the kids to have a healthy breakfast without the crumbs in the back seat. Read more…

Looking for a way to save a bit of money and time? If you find some fruits or vegetables turning soft on you in the fridge, chop them up, toss them in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer. When you’re preparing a meal that requires these ingredients, you’ll have them all ready to go. You’ll have to test this on your vegetables, not all vegetables freeze nicely. I have used this trick on onions, peppers, beans and many different kinds of berries. If my strawberries are looking a little less then perfect, I just freeze them and use them to make smoothies or for my oatmeal in the morning. This also works for blueberries, peaches, raspberries. Berries are so expensive, I can’t stand to throw out money like that.
I particularly like to do this with green onions. I never seem to be able to use up an entire package of green onions. So I use what I need then I’ll chop up the rest and freeze for another day. Then when I’m making my homemade chicken soup or spinach dip, I already have the onions ready to go and I use what I need.
