Easy Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

This is the recipe I made this week in my Crockpot. It was the first time I made it in my Crockpot, and wasn’t sure how it would turn out, since I’ve made it from scratch before (except for the biscuits).  It was really nummy though, and hit the comfort food spot!! If you want to give it a try, the recipe is below:

Mmm…Sushi…

Kensington Burger Bar – Sunday June 17th 2012

So, Hubby and I went to the Kensington Burger Bar, this past Saturday. We used a deal voucher I had bought, and it was the last weekend to do so.  I had been there before with my BFF, and we had the Market Burger. Unfortunately, it was a bit too salty for my liking, but I was willing to give them another try anyway.

We decided to have, the Rapini with toasted garlic, lemon and olive oil. It was simple and really good. I’ll definitely be making it at home 🙂

We then decided on sharing the ‘Lyon’ Burger, with goats cheese, arugula and dijon – with a side of sweet potato fries. It was REALLY good. The patty wasn’t salty at all, and it just tasted of pure beef – the way I like it 🙂 The creaminess of the goats cheese, the peppery goodness of the arugala and the spicy tang of the dijon all came together really well. Would definitely have that burger again for sure!!

The sweet potato fries were all right and my GOD you got a lot!! We left half of it, since there was so much LOL Unfortunately, they had salted them too much, for my liking. It seems, it’s hit and miss, when it comes to salt at the Burger Bar. The homemade chipotle ketchup wasn’t bad either. You could tell it was made in house, as it wasn’t super sweet like commercial ketchup, and the chipotle gave a nice little kick to it 🙂

All in all, it was a pretty decent experience. I’d recommend you check them out, the next time you’re in the Kensington area, as you never know – there may be something on their menu you enjoy!!

Bake Sale (Etobicoke Location) – Saturday July 16, 2012

So, I had bought a deal for this bake shope, and I had never heard of it before. Aptly called Bake Shop, my hubby and I went to check them out on Saturday, as well as grab some goodies 🙂

They had everything from brownies, to assorted squares, to assorted cookies and cakes. But, of course, their main attraction are the cupcakes – which they have in both regular and mini sizes. Our deal was for the regular size ones, so we grabbed mint chocolate, peanut butter and strawberry cupcakes. So far we’ve tried the strawberry cupcake and it was pretty good!! It had pieces of real strawberry, wasn’t too sweet, and neither was the strawberry buttercream. The cupcake itself was a tad dry, but we did get it at the end of the day, so that may well have been the reason why. All in all, I would go there again, for a treat and can’t wait to try the mint chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes we have left!!
