Peanut Butter Snack Balls

Peanut Butter Snack Balls

I actually did it. I used the word “balls” in a recipe…*sigh*. I couldn’t avoid it forever. I suppose I could have called them “bites” but come on, let’s be real. They’re balls. Sweet, slightly salty, protein-packed BALLS – and you’ve gotta try them! I’ve been working on this recipe […]

crispy proscuitto sandwich

Crispy Prosciutto Sandwich

I’m a bit of a sandwich snob. Don’t get me wrong, if I’m starving (ok, mildly hungry), I wouldn’t turn down a mediocre sandwich. In fact, I’d probably scarf it down in 5 minutes and declare that it is the BEST sandwich I’ve ever had; however, this is primarily due […]

whole wheat blueberry buttermilk pancakes

Whole Wheat Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Paaancakes!! I can’t believe I haven’t posted about pancakes yet. They’re seriously a staple around here – we eat pancakes at least 2-3 times a week. What’s not to love?! In fact, they’re worthy of a list (does anyone else love lists!?): Why do I love pancakes? They are: Soft […]

skillet linguine

Skillet Linguine

Growing up, I was a pretty picky eater. I disliked most meat (WAY too much effort to chew), and I didn’t particularly care for vegetables, unless I had pulled it fresh from the dirt of our garden. If you had asked me back then what my favourite meal was, or […]

Mixed Berry Vanilla Donuts

Mixed Berry Vanilla Donuts

Okay, okay. I know that it’s now September and instead of sharing a pumpkin-spiced something or other, I’m sharing a summery, berry donut recipe. Forgive me!? I’d like to say this absurdity is because I’m still 100% fighting the end of summer (which is more than true), but the real […]

healthier zucchini brownies

Healthier Zucchini Brownies

It’s not often that I find myself literally eating the recipe that I’m writing about. More often that not, I’ve taken the actual pictures of the featured recipe a few days, or even weeks, prior to posting it. Not today! I’m noshing away on a zucchini brownie as I speak type […]

Chapter Six – Summer

“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August” – Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty Hey all!! It’s been a while since we had a real chat – but I blame summer. WHEW summer is always busy, am I right!? I am not complaining. It has been […]

Bakery-Style Blackberry Peach Muffins

Bakery-Style Blackberry Peach Muffins

What are you afraid of? In addition to a few abstract, worldly fears, I AM AFRAID OF SPIDERS. Gah!! I understand that they do great things by eating bugs and other pests, yada, yada, yada – BUT – they’re creepy. There’s just no way around that. They have too many […]

Funfetti Birthday Cupcakes

Vanilla Funfetti Birthday Cupcakes

  So, you might remember from a few posts back my mention of some birthday cupcakes! I was making them for the group birthday party we were having – I’m happy to say the cupcakes were a hit – and I’m finally getting around to posting the recipe for them. […]

No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Tart

No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Tart

THIS. THIS is what has been getting me through the past few days of *insert shudder*….TEETHING. Uuuuugh. Seriously, I don’t want to be that Mom who complains about how hard it is raising little humans, because I truly, truly love my job as a Mother and I love my kids […]

red thai zuccini boats

Thai Red Curry Zucchini Boats

I’m keeping with my #ThaiTuesday theme. If you haven’t noticed, we really like our Thai spices around here; a couple of weeks ago, I posted one of our favourite Thai dishes. Although today’s recipe doesn’t have quite the same standing in our dinner rotation, with all the zucchini I’ve been harvesting […]
