Parmesan Rosemary Snack Mix

Parmesan Rosemary Snack Mix

Jump to Recipe So, are you a football watcher? I used to be more of a football fan, but since marrying a South African who really only took an interest in rugby, I haven’t been much of a sports watcher. That even includes hockey #badcanadian While I may not be […]

Browned Butter Reese's Pieces Cookies-2

Browned Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookies

Hola! I thought it was about time I posted something naughty. We’re over halfway into January, so I’ve been doing pretty good. Truth be told, these cookies actually came about quite by accident last weekend, but I could NOT keep them from you. It was a beautiful accident. Keeping with […]

Cantaloupe Breakfast Bowl

What’s your take on melon? I ADORE watermelon, but other melons have never really made me jump with excitement. You know when you order a fruit salad and it’s primarily melons and grapes? That’s always a little bit disappointing for me. My ideal fruit salad would be just a ton […]

Grain-free Granola

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  Have you tried grain-free granola yet? I just made my first batch and it turned out GREAT. I’m hoping to post the recipe soon. Interested? 2.  Hattie and her distracted nursing. So annoying! I have to take her into a dark room to nurse these days. I guess her […]

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hummus! I like hummus a lot. I like it with a fox, in a box, or on a train or on a plane. I even like it in the rain. I do! I like hummus a lot. I’ve been reading a lot of Dr. Seuss lately, sorry. It gets stuck […]

Keto Chorizo Frittata

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! It’s 2019! So, are you kicking off the new year with an “eat healthy” resolution? I’m not judging you if you are! I think most people make this resolution not necessarily because it’s a new year, but because they’ve been stuffing themselves for the past month and […]

Chapter Eleven – 2018

  Wow – I can’t believe I’m bidding farewell to 2018. I know it’s cliché, and cliché to say that you know it’s cliché, but TIME IS FLYING! With each passing year I feel like the world is spinning faster and faster on its axis and I’m struggling to embrace […]

Boozy Christmas Slush

Boozy Christmas Slush

  I really should have named this post “Dad’s Christmas Slush”, because it is without a doubt, my Dad’s recipe. I’m not sure where it originated from – I think from one of the men he worked with, but it kind of became a tradition, at least since I was […]

Chocolate Caramel Bliss Bars

Chocolate Caramel Bliss Bars

I did it! You guys, I did it! I think I’ve created my most favourite bar ever. Really. I know that’s a bold thing to say, but these seriously check ALL the boxes. I told you in an earlier post that I was no holds barred when it comes to […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

  1. Mexico! Cancun, specifically. It was SO wonderful. It was the first all-inclusive I’ve been to in over 10 years, but it definitely won’t be the last. 2. Cookies! ‘Tis the season. I have so many cookies, but I can’t stop baking. Have you tried my mint chocolate candy […]

hello dolly donuts

Hello Dolly Donuts

Hello Dolly! I only discovered the wonders of the famous Hello Dolly bars last Christmas, when a friend made them for our cookie exchange. I’m obsessed! They’re so good. They contain so many of my favourite ingredients in baking; coconut, pecans, chocolate…and condensed milk. You just can’t go wrong with […]

Mint Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Mint Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Hi from Mexico!! It feels so weird to be posting something so obviously Christmasy when I’m sitting in a sunny paradise. But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join another blog hop! Especially a Christmas blog hop – I LOVE this time of year. You might have come across […]
