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

  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 […]

Chapter Ten – Harriet

Meet Hattie – my sweet little bean – welcomed into the world on the morning of Friday, April 27 at 9:24am. I’ve been itching to get back on the blog and back into developing and photographing new recipes (I’ve got SO many ideas!) but this little girl of mine basically […]

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 […]
