raspberry chocolate banana bread

Raspberry Chocolate Banana Bread

I have a confession: I’m a bit of a thief (insert gasp). You can often find me lurking in back alleys, dressed in black, scurrying along next to the fence lines….. No, I’m not doing anything particularly nefarious. I’m picking raspberries! In the summer when raspberry bushes are at their peak, there are a […]

hawaiian meatballs

Hawaiian Meatballs

Right now, in the middle of winter, I’m dreaming of beaches, palm trees and the ocean. One of my favorite places in the world is Hawaii. I’ve been to Hawaii quite a few times, but it never gets old. I consider myself a pretty adventurous traveler; I love exploring new places […]

white chocolate chunk almond butter cookies

White Chocolate Chunk Almond Butter Cookies

Happy Hump Day!! I love Wednesdays. Not as much as I like Thursdays, or Fridays, or Saturdays and Sundays…but it does have a special place in my heart. It’s the middle of the work week, and it gives you that little “the weekend is just about here” tingle. It’s winter here in […]

creamy vegetable casserole

Creamy Vegetable Casserole

Ok. Let’s talk Meatless Monday! Etienne and I started this little weekly tradition a couple of years ago when I started doing a lot of research about plant-based diets and the benefits that come with more fruits and vegetables in your diet. I like to think I could do an entirely plant-based […]

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

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

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 […]

strawberry buttermilk donuts

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 […]
