Rhubarb OatCrumble Squares

Gotta love a low maintenance herbaceous perennial! THESE Rhubarb OatCrumble Squares – BIG fan of their tart and slightly sweet side. Rhubarb is, and continues to be, in FULL bloom in my yard. I love it! It didn’t take much to introduce this crumbly duo…oats, meet freshly stewed rhubarb.

French Toast

French Toast *PlantBased – as kids, my parents would make us anything we wanted for breakfast (with restrictions) on Sunday mornings. It usually came down to pancakes, waffles, or french toast. Clearly we loved our carbs. There was just something about french toast that always felt ultra special. Fancy, really. SO…seeing as it was a…

Glazed Coffee Donuts

Coffee break! Cleary I can’t get enough these days. Just like my coffee, I like my donuts strong!? These glazed gems are lightly sweet, simply baked, and super tender. They’re best when eaten the same day, so all the more reason to share. Want to surprise your crew with a simple (fancy-ish) morning treat?!…try these…

Iced Coffee

Feeling the LOVE today, so I wanted to pay it forward by sharing one of my favourite ways to welcome the warmer weather – Iced Coffee. I know…nothing new, BUT the simple combo of ingredients in this cup has pulled me through the last few (crazy busy & warm) weeks. It’s both thirst quenching and…

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Zucchini Bread – this loaf is moist, dense, and richly delicious. You’d never know it was oil-free! It also errs on the light side of sweet, so you won’t feel like you’re eating chocolate cake for breakfast…or will you;) I took a huge slab of this loaf with me on a road…

Pumpkin Spice HotCross Buns

Did anyone else pick the dried fruit out of their HotCross Buns as a kid? Well, here is a version of our favourite festive bun I would have done my siblings household chores for just to get it on my plate! This bun is packed with pumpkin, spices, & a hint of dark rum. AND…

Cauliflower FriedRice w/ TVP

Need protein?…then this bowl has got you covered! *That line takes me back to my lululemon days. Cauliflower FriedRice with TVP (textured vegetable protein), edamame, and broccoli rabe. This easy + quick high protein meal is seasoned with some of my faves…garlic, ginger, hoisin, *gf tamari, and jalapeƱos – just to name a few. Perfect…

Cabin Cobb Salad

Breakfast, lunch, dinner – this salad can pretty well fit in ANYWHERE. Cabin Cobb Salad. I tacked on ‘cabin’ simply because I eat a few variations of this salad, and brekkie at the cabin is usually (scrambled tofu) eggs + smart bacon. Thanks LightLife! This salad is always a favourite as it sports ALL of…

ChagaCino Protein Bars

ChagaCino Protein Bars – with just a hint of coffee (CappucCino). Has anyone tried Mushroom Coffee yet?? I was lucky enough to sip on a cup recently. Thanks @surferbaron! If you have a chance to try @foursigmatic coffee, DO IT. It was delicious & instant – perfect for those days when running out the door…

Crumbly Baked Pineapple

Yep, this one takes me WAY back – Crumbly Baked Pineapple. This recipe reminds me of one you’d find in a children’s cookbook – it’s fun, sweet, and easy. As kids, my older sister would play ‘restaurant’ with me and my brother. I think she would have been around 16, which would have made me…

Spiced Apple+Pecan Pancakes

International Pancake Day…whaaa, did I miss it?! Apparently yesterday was the BIG day, and seeing as I had planned to post pancakes on Friday anyways – I’m bumping it up to today to catch the tail-end of this classic breakfast wave. There were some really yummy looking stacks out there! Love it. Although mine aren’t…

WildBlueberry Oatmeal Bake Crumble

This one has got me HOOKED – no relation to the movie. WildBlueberry Oatmeal Bake Crumble. What a mouthful! BUT if I’m being honest, I could not stop filling my face with this oatmeal bake. It’s become a regular. Once I captured a decent pic (featured – good enough, right?), I could NOT wait to…
