Top Secret Granola

I started making granola back in my university days for a healthy (and cheap, let’s face it) snack, and haven’t really stopped.  I’m proud to say that my granola has evolved since my first attempts, which had no fat and many experimental ways to sweeten the granola with varying degrees of success.  I settled into this recipe after a decade … View The Post

Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Crepes

Summer makes me happy.  Anybody who knows me can attest to the fact that I’m ALWAYS cold, and the warm Okanagan summer days are what I live for!  And the fruit… it seems like there is a never-ending train of new in-season fresh fruit every week in the summer, and I simply can’t get enough.

Rhubarb Vanilla Pancakes

I bolted out of bed last weekend with the inspiration to make rhubarb pancakes.  Sad but true, I only dream of babies and new recipe ideas. Now, pancakes are a bit of an obsession around our house.  And let me tell you, being pregnant does NOTHING to curb that craving!  I also can’t seem to get enough of two ingredients lately: … View The Post

Mornings.  In the ideal world, we all carve out time to sit down with our cup of tea or coffee, make a nice balanced breakfast, and relax to eat with our loved ones over casual conversation before taking on the day.

Like most mom’s, I’m a sucker for breakfast in bed.  First of all, it means that I’m not the one making breakfast.  Second, someone is serving ME (before I even take my first step of the day). Consider me sold.

Raspberry Rainbow Smoothie Bowl

I have the BIGGEST crush on smoothie bowls right now! I love smoothies, but there is something about eating breakfast (versus drinking it) that is so much more satisfying. I confess, I just got on this smoothie bowl train.  I didn’t really understand the obsession… until I tried it.  Now my head is bursting with smoothie bowl ideas and I wake … View The Post

Double Apple Muffins

We have an apple tree (so lucky), so I make a heap of apple sauce at the end of every apple season and freeze it for baking and snacking through the year.  Charlie, our 3 year old, loves it on top of oatmeal, such an amazing way to start the day!

When I realized it was pancake day AND Apple Month in Canada, I figured I had to step it up a notch.  It is no secret that we love pancakes in our house.  Comfort food at its finest.  But I’m not always up for a full meal of carbs first thing in the morning, go figure.
