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.

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…

Lemony BasmatiRice + Cumin Soup

Just one of those days soup is tasting REAL good!…brrr. This soup was inspired by one that my sister use to make except with potatoes. Seeing as we haven’t made it in years, and I don’t actually have a recipe for it – I forged this Lemony BasmatiRice + Cumin Soup from my memory bank$$$….

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…

Spiced Apple Cake

As a kid, I had this love/hate relationship with apples. They were my parents quick solution to tide-over a hungry child. For the record, I was still hungry. My lunchbox always included the same – bologna sandwich (no, thank you – tradesies), a fruit rollup, and an apple. The apple was the ONE item I…

Zesty Cheddar Kale Chips

I could faceplant into this bowl:) While I was making the taco layer for my Seven Layered Dip, I thought how have I not rubbed this stuff ALL over kale?! I’ve made kale chips many times, but not once did I think to use my taco sauce recipe. SO, the result…simply the BEST. Once dried,…

Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies! Was this anyone else’s favourite as a kid (still is)?!? That crisp exterior, chewy interior, and loads of melty chocolate chips. THE best. Today, I make these gems with dairy free chocolate chunks – love them. AND the salt…just present enough to make these cookies slightly addictive. Glass of cold (nut)…

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…

StewedRaspberry Yam Brownies

StewedRaspberry Yam Brownies! I’ve heard about yam brownies here and there, and finally decided to give them ago putting my own spin on things. I always LOVE the idea of including fruits and/or veg in baked goods. Typically, when I think of brownies they’re fudgy, quite sweet, and rich. These brownies are a couple of…
