Banana “Bread” Granola

In this household, we love Banana Bread, we always have a loaf of banana bread on the go. But recently, we have been making some changes and adjustments to our eating and cut out refined sugar, and a large amount of carbs. Restart, ya know? Kodi attempted to make granola when I was away and…

The Simple Equation for Roasting Veg

Roasted Veggies are one of my FAVOURITE things to make in the winter time. It is easy, you can add any type of seasoning to create different flavours, and usually, winter veg is nice and hearty and can last for a couple of days for leftover lunches. The best thing about roasting vegetables is that…

Garlicky Bruschetta

I will admit that I am a tomato feen. If cherry tomatoes are on the counter, I will eat one every time I walk by them. If there is salsa in the fridge, I will make anything I can to put salsa on, and if there is bruschetta being made, well you better not tell…

Creamy Mushroom, Ham and Bean Pasta

Christmas was three days ago and does anyone else’s fridge look like a Tupperware party full of food.  This year, we had two full Christmas dinners and one night of appetizers. You can say I have eaten way too much, but I don’t want any of the leftovers to go to waste.     This…

Turkey Noodle Soup

This Christmas has been pretty great. Not only has it been the first time in many, many years that I have actually had Christmas Eve, Christmas day and Boxing Day off. But pretty much my entire direct family was in town, so that was pretty cool seeing everyone so close to Christmas. But now that…

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Hi friends, followers and family.  Happy Thanksgiving weekend, love you all! Some of you may know that I have gone back to school, and honestly it has been a lot more than I could have ever imagined, and it has only been one week! By saying that, I will be a little MIA (let’s be…

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Tis the season that I call “false fall”. It is the time of year where it’s fall in the morning, and by noon it is summer again with the weather being back up in the high teen’s low twenties, and you are deeply regretting whipping out your cosy sweaters, leggings and knee-high boots and are…

Homemade Bread

Seasons have changed, and so have we….well not really, that song is just stuck in my head. But it is starting to feel like fall around here in the lower mainland, and the leaves are beginning to change. What means it is time to start baking and making comfort food! One of the household favourites…

Everyone’s Favourite Canned Salsa

Summer is slowly coming to an end, what means the end of my favourite season and the end of fresh local tomatoes. What better way than to make canned salsa with all the tomatoes that have not been eaten and save it for a rainy day in the winter. My friends LOVE this salsa so…
