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 trulyΒ 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 […]

Guys! Just a quick little post today to acknowledge all of the hard work and amazing recipes that came from my food blogger friends in honour of my virtual baby shower! Starting out on this food blogging journey, I never anticipated creating such wonderful relationships online with my fellow bloggers. […]

green monster muffins

Green Monster Muffins

Meet the newest member of my green monster family – the muffins! Actually, they’re not new in any sense, since I’ve been making them since Oscar started eating solid food, BUT they are new to LIMO. I got the original recipe from a friend a few years back, courtesy of […]

Crockpot Minestrone Soup

Crockpot Minestrone Soup

You guys, my 3 year old has the most incredible memory. It’s hilarious! It’s almost become a game. This morning, I noticed that the earplugs I keep by my side of the bed were missing (my husband SNORES), and I asked Oscar if he knew where they were. He didn’t […]
