Snack Attack: Brazilian Cheese Balls

The bonus is that they are gluten free because they are made with tapioca flour (or traditionally made with cassava flour). I serve them with a marinara sauce for a yummy snack straight from the oven! Make extra, you [...]

Snack Attack: Beyond the Bag!

This week we wanted to challenge ourselves. The snack industry in a multi billion dollar industry, and for good reason. Fast, easy, cheap & portable, snacks win because they fit beautifully into our "too busy to eat" & "too tired to cook" lifestyles. They allow us to multi-task, and for better or for worse, we are [...]

Bahn Mi is one of my families favorite grab-n-go dinner options for the nights when we have to "be at the game" right after work. It is normally less than $5 for this Vietnamese "sub" sandwich, and if you are in Chilliwack, lucky you! Get an awesome one (we get the grilled meat patty) from Galaxy [...]
