10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  It was our anniversary yesterday! We celebrated with some bubbly and these mini molten skillet lava cakes. All in our backyard of course, while the kids slept. How cute are these mini cast iron skillets!? 2.  Having to stop to pee while on a mission – these missions include grocery […]

Cherry-Coconut Smoothie Bowl

OK – I know a smoothie bowl is nothing astonishing or inventive for all you foodies out there, but to me, it’s a new thing. And a great thing. How have I taken this long to try making my own!? I’ve been seeing them all over Instagram and Pinterest for […]

healthy smash cake

SMASH cake!! What every 1 year old needs for their birthday. Both hands in, face covered in icing, cake everywhere. Babies go from not being able to eat ANY solid food for the first 4-6 months of their life, to sloooowly adjusting to the tastes and textures of real food, […]

cheesy mexican quinoa skillet

Cheesy Mexican Quinoa Skillet

Hi guys! I had to think a little bit about what I wanted to call this one. Cheesy one pan Mexican quinoa? One pan Mexican cheesy quinoa? Cheesy skillet Mexican quinoa? Nothing sounds right to me. So we’re going with Cheesy Mexican Quinoa Skillet. It’s settled. Oh, food blogger problems. For […]

cherry almond granola

Cherry Almond Granola

Granola. How I love granola! It’s one of my favorite things to snack on, day or night. It’s great in yogurt, mixed up with some fresh berries, and it’s so good on it’s own. My all time go-to granola recipe is definitely my coco-chocolate chunk pecan granola but sometimes I want a granola without all […]

Girl Guide Cookie Bars

Hi! How are you? If you had a long weekend like me, how was it? I was at a family reunion in the town of Drumheller for most of it, and I have to say it was pretty fun. The words “family reunion” generally seem to make people cringe a little, or […]

Nutella-Pear French Toast Bake

You’ve made it to Friday again! Congratulations! Am I the only one that gets excited on a Friday just thinking about all of the weekend fooding? Especially on long weekends! My website traffic stats tell me that many of you lovely readers are from the US of A, so I don’t […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  My Mother’s Day present. I already told you about the gift card I got in my banana muffins post but I haven’t told you what I bought. Among so many other cool things, I bought this lucky rooster. I had to. It spoke to me! 2.  Construction zones. Without […]

Baby and me banana muffins

Baby-and-Me Banana Muffins

Well, Mother’s Day is over! I have to say it was a pretty great day. Etienne let me sleep in, and had breakfast waiting for me when I got up, along with an adorable card featuring the footprints and handprints of my tiny little loves. Oh – and a gift […]

Vanilla Bean Rooibos Bread

It’s almost Mother’s Day! This is not a reminder to my husband, who is very likely reading this post. I’m lucky enough that he has planned ahead and has arranged a dinner reservation for Saturday night. It’s a surprise – I can’t wait! Eating out might be one of my […]

Moroccan Couscous-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Hi all, how is the week going? Many of my fellow food bloggers were at the Everything Food Conference in Salt Lake City this past weekend. I so would have loved to go, especially after hearing about how wonderful the speakers were. Maybe next year. So, instead of immersing myself into […]
