Mint Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Hi from Mexico!! It feels so weird to be posting something so obviously Christmasy when I’m sitting in a sunny paradise. But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join another blog hop! Especially a Christmas blog hop – I LOVE this time of year. You might have come across […]

Crockpot Italian Beef Sandwiches

Crockpot Italian Beef Sandwiches

Hello! I’m so excited to introduce you to one of my favourite go-to meals. Crockpot Italian beef sandwiches!! I make these quite often for my family, especially during the winter when I’m craving a warm, hearty meal. It’s a total dump-and-go recipe, taking less than 10 minutes to throw together. […]

Salted Caramel Apple Rose Pie

Salted Caramel Apple Rose Pie

OK – the title of this post. It’s somewhat wordy, but I couldn’t leave any of the words out without feeling like you wouldn’t know what the recipe is all about! I think I’ve captured it nicely πŸ˜‰ No guesswork here! I have recently been feeling rather confident in my […]

chocolate chia apricots

Chocolate Chia Apricots

I have to apologize for these photos. I had no idea how to photograph something like this! Putting the apricots all jumbled together didn’t work, because you couldn’t really tell what they were. Laying them out flat just didn’t look very appealing. Gah! These apricots are yummy – you’ll just […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

I know “fall” has been happening for a while for most of you, but for us, it’s FINALLY fall. We were hit with a giant snowstorm a few weeks ago, but we’ve had beautiful, sunny weather the past week and it’s been glorious. And yes. The snow has melted! And […]

Pumpkin Cake Cookies

Pumpkin Cake Cookies

The title of the recipe says it all. If you’re one of those people that hates a cookie with a cakey texture, than these are decidedly not for you; however, if you love a pillowy soft, fluffy, cakey cookie, then these are mostΒ definitely for you. I hope you’re not sick […]

Cheesy Bacon Scones

Cheesy Bacon Scones

Cheesy bacon scones!! Since this post comes right after a blessed weekend of stuffing myself full of Thanksgiving goodies, I feel I should probably be posting something a bit lighter than a recipe containing cheese and bacon, but I just can’t let another week go by without sharing these scones […]

Apple Cinnamon Gin Fizz

Guys, the weather around here has been miserable. We had ONE day of sunshine last week, and it was glorious! The kids and I spent the whole day outside! Fall is usually my absolute favourite time of the year, but when I think of fall I think of crisp sunny […]

Nut-Free Chewy Granola Bars

Nut-Free Chewy Granola Bars

The kids are back in school! I mostly mean your kids, since I only have one kid that is school-age, and by school-age I really mean pre-kindergarten age πŸ˜‰ Anyway, it’s September and that means people are looking for back-to-school snacks that are easy to make, nutritious, and won’t end […]

Sheet Pan Chicken with Sweets n’ Beets

Have you ever had the Sweets & Beets chips by Terra? Please tell me you have. They’re one of my guilty pleasures! I know, I know, my guilty pleasure is vegetable chips? Puh-lease. But don’t be fooled – they might be “veggie” chips, but they aren’t necessarily kind to your […]

Chocolate Cherry Chip Cupcakes

Chocolate Cherry Chip Cupcakes

Ok, so I’ve only posted like three recipes this entire summer, and two of them have been cupcakes. Don’t judge me, alright!? I’m tired, overwhelmed, and I really, REALLY like sugar. It helps. Plus – I’m part of this whole #cupcakemondays phenomenon so I have a perfectly legitimate reason to […]

Caramel Apple Cupcakes

Caramel Apple Cupcakes

  Hooray, it’s cupcake Monday! Trust me, it’s a thing. If you don’t believe me, check out my friend Kelsie’s blog, or Zainab’s. My contribution for this particular cupcake Monday is a recipe that totally screams summer to me. Maybe it’s my missing the Calgary Stampede this year that has […]
