Gluten-Free Skillet Brownie

Gluten-Free Skillet Brownie

I’m still here! Almost 39 weeks and holding strong – thank goodness – because now I can share with you this little treasure I’ve been sitting on for a month. I created this fudgy, rich, decadent masterpiece in a skillet one day when I was craving chocolate something fierce; but […]

Crispy Mongolian Cauliflower

Every time I start writing out a new post, I wonder if it’s going to be my last one for a while – if baby girl is going to surprise me a bit early! That being said, the more time that goes on, the less “early” she’ll be. SO – […]

Healthier Sea Salt Caramels

Healthier Sea Salt Caramels

So, in anticipation of baby girl’s arrival, we transitioned the boys to one room this past weekend. The first night went as we had somewhat expected, with lots of giggles and playing and getting out of bed – but – the sweetest thing also happened. Etienne and I were watching […]

peanut butter granola

Peanut Butter Granola

So, Easter weekend is over, and I’ve eaten my fair share of Easter candy. We prepared the boys’ baskets on Saturday night and obviously, we had to do some sampling to make sure everything they got from the bunny was sufficiently delicious. I had so much fun making up the […]

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Happy (almost) Easter! If there’s one thing I know about Easter, it’s that carrot cake is frequently an honorary guest around the table. This makes me one happy girl. Carrot cake is, without a doubt, my FAVOURITE type of cake. It’s so moist, and that cream cheese icing just can’t […]

Roasted Asparagus and Ricotta Fettuccine

Roasted Asparagus and Ricotta Fettuccine

Hi guys! How was your weekend? It’s EASTER next weekend – so nuts. Time is flyyyyyying. I’m now on official countdown for baby girl – less than 5 weeks to go (give or take). My dentist told me today that her third baby was 5 weeks early – yikes! I […]

lovely lemon cake

Lovely Lemon Cake

So, what do you think of my first attempt at frosting a naked cake?! It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. The taste and texture of this trulyย lovely lemon cake is spot on, which is really what matters, right? Since my Dad’s passing almost 6 […]

Matcha No Churn Ice Cream

Matcha No Churn Ice Cream

You can’t be that surprised that I snuck in one more green recipe before St. Patty’s, right?! I’ve been thinking about this recipe for quite a while now, but I had yet to try it until a few weeks ago. I wish I had known about the glory of this […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1. Winter. Beautiful, isn’t it? It’s also almost OVER and I have to say, I’m ready to photograph some greeeeeen! 2. I found myself getting really excited about a “best of early ’00” playlist the other night, and I realized that these were the songs my friends and I would […]

Lemon Poppyseed Overnight Oats

Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats

What’s your typical breakfast routine? I actually want to know. I sometimes wonder how in line with the rest of the world I am when it comes to breakfast – I feel like I know so many people that say they either don’t eat breakfast at all, or they have […]

Baby and Me Banana Waffles

Baby-and-Me Banana Waffles

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a baby-and-me recipe, since Wally is now just eating whatever we’ve been making, and I’m not focusing on baby friendly meals and snacks – BUT – I have to post this one because I can’t keep it from you any longer! What do […]

yellow rice

Yellow Rice

Yellow rice, you guys. YELLOW rice! It’s so good! If you read my latest 10 Thoughts you’ll know that I’ve been having fun going through old cookbooks and trying new recipes. One of these said cookbooks is my copy of Cook & Enjoy, a long-time favourite from South Africa. While […]
