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!

Sweet Chili Broccoli

Here's a quick Asian-inspired side dish.

1 head of broccoli, cut in flowerets
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 - 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce (depending on how big your broccoli is)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsps water
a handful of sliced almonds

In a wok or frying pan, heat the vegetable oil.  Then add the sliced onions and cook just until translucent, about 3-4 minutes. 

Add broccoli, sauce, water, salt and pepper to your pan and toss together.  

Cover and cook on medium 5-6 minutes, adding the almonds in the last minute or two.
