When Sunday rolls around, I know I should get lunches prep’d for the upcoming week but I procrastinate anyway. I make so many excuses: maybe I can just buy my lunch, or maybe I’ll make something tomorrow morning. 

If that sounds familiar, this chilli recipe is great. Put everything in a pot, and check on it in 30 minutes. You can prepare it on a Sunday evening, with enough to last you for most of the week. If you’re feeling ambitious, try fresh tomatoes and make this in a slow cooker.Continue Reading

Happy National Pasta Day! Delicious Cheese Sauce, with just 7 ingredients

Mac & CheeseGuest Author: Gena (Urbery Marketing Manager)

Happy National Pasta Day! Mac & cheese is always a winning meal, and one of my favourites. If you’re looking for a tried-and-true cheese sauce to spice up your pasta, you can’t go wrong with this simple recipe.

My father made this for me when I was a kid, and I’ve been making it ever since. It is a great back-to-basics sauce that takes 7 ingredients, and less than 20 minutes to prepare. In the same amount of time you’d spend making a boxed mac-and-cheese, you could make this. Don’t let the recipe below fool you. It makes a lot and is super affordable. Depending on how much you want or how many you’re feeding, just double the ingredients.

If you love leftovers like I do, this reheats nicely. You’ll need the following to make this, and can substitute any of the ingredients with vegan or gluten free items your prefer.Continue Reading

Homemade chimichurri sauce has been an obsession for how I’ve been cooking steak. This recipe is perfect for summer and into late fall, and is easy to prepare. I have been putting away the potatoes and moved towards grilled veggies when serving steak with this chimichurri sauce. Red peppers and zucchini are perfect for this time of year, and something about getting pepper with a bit of char on it just feels right.Continue Reading
