I live in Ontario, and like trying new recipes, an playing with my favourites to keep them fresh! 

I am also doing a blog on Facebook about how to save money on everything and anything, especially food. I include 6 recipes each week that are under $15 total to serve a family of 4-6 people, helping to keep them healthy!

Message me if you are interested in receiving this, and I will add you!

I am willing to try almost anything, but I prefer to make recipes that are cheap, so that I can teach the kids I work with how to eat well while stretching their $!
