Mixed Berry Vanilla Donuts

Mixed Berry Vanilla Donuts

Okay, okay. I know that it’s now September and instead of sharing a pumpkin-spiced something or other, I’m sharing a summery, berry donut recipe. Forgive me!? I’d like to say this absurdity is because I’m still 100% fighting the end of summer (which is more than true), but the real […]

healthier zucchini brownies

Healthier Zucchini Brownies

It’s not often that I find myself literally eating the recipe that I’m writing about. More often that not, I’ve taken the actual pictures of the featured recipe a few days, or even weeks, prior to posting it. Not today! I’m noshing away on a zucchini brownie as I speak type […]

THIS. THIS is what has been getting me through the past few days of *insert shudder*….TEETHING. Uuuuugh. Seriously, I don’t want to be that Mom who complains about how hard it is raising little humans, because I truly, truly love my job as a Mother and I love my kids […]

Thai Red Curry Zucchini Boats

I’m keeping with my #ThaiTuesday theme. If you haven’t noticed, we really like our Thai spices around here; a couple of weeks ago, I posted one of our favourite Thai dishes. Although today’s recipe doesn’t have quite the same standing in our dinner rotation, with all the zucchini I’ve been harvesting […]
