Apple Crisp Bars

Bars are kind of a ‘thing’ in our house. In truth, I love the idea of being able to eat something with one hand these days as I typically have a baby in the other arm!  It’s survival of the fittest, let’s face it.

Date Power Bars

I would say that we do a pretty good job of eating well in our house.  Most days I have the fridge packed with fruit and veggies with healthy snacks made up and dinner planned to a science.  But if I’m going to be honest, there are some days that I’m not on my A game.  And the first thing … View The Post

Plum Oat Bran Muffins

These oat bran muffins are moist and not too sweet, perfect for a morning run-out-the-door breakfast or an afternoon snack. I used plums, but you can use any soft fruit you want (nectarines, peaches…)! Freeze any extras for a quick snack or breakfast for hectic mornings, or bake them in mini muffin tins for a perfect snack for the little ones … View The Post

I’ve been eyeing up tomato tarts on Pinterest for some time now.  But I will admit, the thought of making my own pastry is just too much for this busy mom to handle some days, especially something as delicate as puff pastry.  I’ve reached the conclusion that life is simply too short for somethings; like making my own puff pastry!

Apple Greek Yogurt Cake

One of my fondest memories growing up in the Okanagan was the anticipation of fruit season. Cherries, plums, peaches, pears, and of course, delicious crunchy apples fresh off of the tree. I had no clue how lucky we were! I moved away from the Okanagan for about 10 years before returning, and have such a different level of appreciation for the … View The Post

Homemade hummus

I must admit, I’m a bit of a purist at heart.  There are some things that I simply don’t like to mess with.  My hummus is one of them.  I don’t want fancy things like pumpkin or chipotle in my hummus, thank-you-very-much. Hummus is a staple in our house, and is so healthy, so we figured we may as well make … View The Post
