Loaded Smashed Potatoes

Loaded Smashed Potatoes

Easy peasy! Today’s delicious recipe is the epitome of easy, and OHHHH so delicious. These little smashed bombs of happiness are supposed to be a “side”, but if you’re anything like me, they can quickly become a main dish. Or, you’ll just eat them like they’re a main dish and […]

Chorizo and Caramelized Onion Skillet Pizza

Chorizo and Caramelized Onion Skillet Pizza

Sooo we’re back to -25 (C) temperatures over here in Calgary. Beautiful, balmy, Calgary. It’s only January 12 and I’m already over winter – in my mind I’m kicking back on my favourite chair in the backyard, drinking an ice cold bevy and basking in the sun….*sigh*. Once the excitement […]

Nutella Walnut Granola

Nutella Walnut Granola

Granola!! Do you love it as much as I do? I love it for breakfast, as a snack, or even a late-night treat. It’s pretty much good any time of day. I do like my granola a bit on the decadent side, but I try to keep it somewhat reasonable […]

almond java breakfast bulgur

Almond Java Breakfast Bulgur

You guys, I just read the weirdest article in the news. Apparently the newest health trend popping up everywhere is to drink “raw water”…basically, unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized spring water. I’m not sure what the claims are, but regardless of whether it clears up your acne or not, you could catch […]

Zesty Sausage and White Bean Skillet

Zesty Sausage and White Bean Skillet

Happy New Year!! It’s 2018! It feels odd to write that – in the way that it always does at the beginning of the year when you need to re-train your brain to write down something different than what it’s used to. What did you do for New Year’s Eve? […]

eggnog latte

Eggnog Latte

Hi! How was your Christmas?! The day might be over and done, but I’m still listening to Christmas music and I refuse to take down any decorations until the New Year – it’s still the holiday season! I had a wonderful Christmas Day. My Mom made it down the day […]

Eggnog Baked Oatmeal

Eggnog Baked Oatmeal

I know everyone around you is probably saying the same thing, but seriously. I cannot believe it is the Christmas weekend already! I knew it was going to sneak up fast, as it always does, but wow. Christmas is on Monday!! If you’re like me, and you still haven’t quite finished your […]

Vanilla Bean Cookie Pops

Vanilla Bean Cookie Pops

There should be more things on sticks. Every time I have this thought, I am reminded of that scene in There’s Something About Mary where they’re strolling along the boardwalk discussing the lack of meat on sticks. Great movie – and they did have a good point. Why aren’t more […]

DIY Gingerbread House

DIY Gingerbread House

Ok, so you may be wondering why you would ever make your own gingerbread house from scratch, when you can easily and cheaply buy a pre-constructed version from pretty much any store this time of year? Well, I don’t have a great reason WHY you should do it, but chances […]

Real Mint Chocolate No Churn Ice Cream

Real Mint Chocolate No Churn Ice Cream

Hello! Hi there! I’m super excited about today’s post, and it’s all thanks to a tiny little green plant (hmmm…let me clarify that). I hope when you read the title of this recipe you didn’t miss the “real” part of it. REAL mint, guys! Don’t get me wrong, I’m a […]

Double Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

Double Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

I have a new addiction. No, it’s not biscotti (that’s definitely an addiction, but nothing new). For the past couple of weeks, every night, about 30 minutes before I get into bed, I stick an electric blanket under my sheets and crank it on high….gaaah!! It’s amazing. I no longer […]
