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…

Blueberry Green Tea Popsicles

It feels like it is 1000 degrees out and I live near the water. The only way I have been able to cool down is Ice cold beverages and showers.  Sometimes thou, you do not want to drink, or shower! I made these tasty popsicles using Epicures Sencha and Jasmine Green Tea some local blueberries and simple…

Cucumber Watermelon Salad

Are you ever lost when it comes to a potluck BBQ, or are you ever sick of bringing the same thing all the time? This salad is a new game changer for me. It is sweet, it is salty, it is spicy, it is love! It only took me 5 minutes to make, and another…

Cucumber Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing

I have so many cucumbers right now! And anyone who knows me knows that I love my classic cucumber in vinegar any time of the year, but when it is fresh out of your garden you need to highlight it more!  Recently I have been on a mission to make the perfect peanut sauce because…
