Salted Caramel Chocolate Almond Clusters

I know, I know, I made you think I was all healthy and stuff. Really, I am. Those recipes will come, I promise! I just couldn’t let National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day go by without letting you know about these little gems. There really is a National Day for this. […]

Salted Caramel Sauce

Yay! I’m finally posting one of my FAVORITE things in the whole world. I have a LOT of favorites in life, but salted caramel is really, really up there. It makes all things better! Plus it goes with everything. Ice cream, brownies, scones, oatmeal – yes – even oatmeal!! It is really easy […]

baby and me breakfast cookies

Baby-and-Me Breakfast Cookies

Now that Wally is eating a lot more solid food, I’m always on the hunt for baby-friendly snack recipes that are chock-full of wholesome ingredients and contain little to no refined sugars, but are also tasty for the rest of the family. I’m often in a rush to leave the house […]

Chapter Two – Family

Hi! It’s Family Day here in Alberta. Not only does it mean I get an extra day with my husband around to help with the kiddos, it means we get that extra day to actually spend time as a family instead of simply running errands and attending various weekend activities. If you’ve got the day […]

simple kale salad

Simple Kale Salad

In the summer, when our garden is blossoming, we often have an overabundance of kale and I’m constantly looking for ways to use it. I still buy kale from the grocery store during the winter, but it is usually on a whim and almost always with this salad in mind; however, […]

Raspberry Filled Sugar Cookies

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is like cilantro. You either LOVE it or HATE it. Personally, I have always loved it – both cilantro and V-Day that is. I think it’s so nice that on this one day of the year, we are obligated to think about love. You don’t have […]

Baked Strawberry Buttermilk Donuts

The other morning I made donuts. Whaaaaat MADE donuts you say!? It’s true. I did! And while there was no deep fryer involved, they were every bit as delicious as a deep fried donut. Skip to the recipe As buckets of snow fell from the grey sky, I decided we needed some color […]

Loaded Squachos

Squachos! Squachos, squachos, squachos. How fun is that to say!? Every time I say that word around here, Etienne smirks. He actually thinks it’s a ridiculous concept, but that doesn’t seem to stop him from diving in to a pile of SQUACHOS whenever I make them for dinner. Skip to […]

Coconut Cream Larabars

Sunday afternoons are one of the best parts of the whole week. After a long hard work week (this includes “Momming”) and usually some fun on the weekend, Sunday is when my little family and I get to lay low, go for walks together, enjoy a huge Sunday brunch AND […]

Chapter One – The Beginning

  Hello! Welcome to my little blog. I have worked long and hard to get to this point. I started this journey in September last year, when my youngest, Walter, was finally starting to go to bed a bit earlier and I had (some) free time in the evenings again! […]

roasted garlic hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus

  I love dips. Salsa, tzatziki, guacamole, and hummus!! I especially love dips when they’re made with healthy ingredients and you can smother that warm pita chip in dip without feeling too guilty. Done the right way, hummus is so good for you! Made with garbanzo beans, it is chalk full […]
